    Stopping to use a cash machine one evening, a man inexplicably falls to the ground: dead. A taxi driver is brutally murdered by two teenage girls. Quickly apprehended they appal local policemen with their total lack of remorse. One girl escapes police custody and disappears without trace. Soon afterwards, a blackout covers half the country. When an engineer arrives at the malfunctioning power station, he makes a grisly discovery. Inspector Kurt Wallander is sure that these events must be linked - somehow.

    For psychotherapist Frieda Klein, the days get longer, the cases darker…. She thought she was done with the police. But once more DCI Karlsson is knocking at her door. A man’s decomposed body has been found in the flat of Michelle Doyce, a woman trapped in a world of strange mental disorder. The police don’t know who it is, how he got there, or what happened - and Michelle can’t tell them. But Karlsson hopes Frieda can get access to the truths buried beneath her confusion.

    Eva says: "so well perfomed, makes up for a complicated story"

    What did you love best about Tuesday's Gone?

    I just love the way Nicci French describes the characters


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The relationship between the inspector and Frieda Klein

    I read Blue Monday and found her performance as brilliant as in Tuesday's gone.

    I just couldn't stop listening

    Such a meticulous description of live in London

    Georgie Jutland is a mess. At 40, with her career in ruins, she finds herself stranded in White Point with a fisherman she doesn't love and two kids whose dead mother she can never replace. Her days have fallen into domestic tedium and social isolation. Her nights are a blur of vodka and pointless loitering in cyberspace. Leached of all confidence, Georgie has lost her way; she barely recognizes herself.

    Bjerkana says: "Good story, atmospheric"
    "lively and moving story"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dirt Music to be better than the print version?

    the reader makes it a real Westaustralian story


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I would have liked to know if Fox survived :-)


    Which character – as performed by Suzi Dougherty – was your favorite?

    Fox


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic describtion of characters and scenerie. - I sometimes struggled to follow the story but in the end everything fell in place.

    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    Would you try another book from John Hart and/or Scott Sowers?

    no, the story is too constructed, didn't get under my skin


    What could John Hart have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    the story is too long, too many problems and issues packed into it


    What does Scott Sowers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes it a real American story. - Good reading, easy to distinguish the caracters


    Do you think The Last Child needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no, the story was already long enough


    Any additional comments?

    too many dead people, too much killing

    Monday, the lowest point of the week. A day of dark impulses. A day to snatch a child from the streets.... The abduction of five-year-old Matthew Farraday provokes national outcry and a desperate police hunt. And when his face is splashed over the newspapers, psychotherapist Frieda Klein is left troubled: one of her patients has been relating dreams in which he has a hunger for a child. A child he can describe in perfect detail, a child the spitting image of Matthew. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson doesn't take Frieda's concerns seriously until a link emerges with an unsolved abduction twenty years ago....
