Publisher's Summary

The fourth novel in the internationally bestselling Malin Fors series, a Swedish crime-writing phenomenon, perfect for fans of the television series The Killing and The Bridge.

The Swedish town of Linköping is bathed in Spring sunshine. The trees are blossoming and families are having breakfast at outdoor tables in the main square. Then a deafening explosion rips through the air. Broken glass and tulip petals cover the cobblestones, and two little girls, twin sisters, are killed while their mother is left fighting for her life.

Detective Inspector Malin Fors has just attended her own mother's funeral when she is summoned to the devastating scene. But, although Malin is plagued with questions about her past and the secrets her mother never revealed, she must once again bury her own pain if she is to find Tuva and Mira Vigerö's killer before he strikes again.

What the Critics Say

"Kallentoft's books have been called beautiful, exquisite and original. I can see why" (Literary Review)

"Don't bother with Stieg Larsson, Kallentoft is better" (Magnus Utvik, Sweden's leading critic)

"It is Kallentoft's characterisation and distinctive, often poetic style which make his crime-writing more memorable than most . . . It is compelling reading. The atmosphere of oppressive heat creates the sense of a hell on earth, where evil thrives. It is a powerful and disturbing vision." (Canberra Times)

    "Promising Start - Followed by a Terminal Decline"

    It all began fairly well with an unusual and puzzling plot and story-line developing nicely but then I began to struggle with it. It all began to disintegrate for me once the super-natural aspect crept in and started to take over. In fairness to the novel, I bought it not realizing that it was that kind of thriller but if you like your detectives being in constant touch with the recently departed then this could be a novel for you. Apart from that, I also felt that the core plot began to lose its credulity about half way through but I did persevere. Jane Collingwood does her best I suppose, but when she tries to take on male voices they do unfortunately all sound pretty ridiculous and maybe she just shouldn't have tried. I got about three-quarters of the way through but just couldn't make it to the end. Must exercise more caution next time!

    "Tedious"
    Would you try another book written by Mons Kallentoft or narrated by Jane Collingwood?

    If the format is along the line of this novel, then No.


    What could Mons Kallentoft have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am sure there are readers who like this style of storytelling. I did not like the fantasy/supernatural angle.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jane Collingwood’s performances?

    I might.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Annoyed at the inconsistency in the characters, and the perpetual contradiction in the characters thoughts.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt it was swampt with moralistic issues and of selfrecrimination.

    "Marvellous"

    I wasn't disappointed by the fourth book in this series...I just love his style of writing. A good dark story...more insight into the life of Malin Fors..and more dead people talking! The book is enhanced by the narration... for me it was hours of "unputdownable" bliss... Thanks Mons.

    "Get off Your Soap Box"

    Every other page is a political sermon - like the bits everyone skips over in Stieg Larsson novels, and its political analysis is slightly less sophisticated than a Soviet propaganda poster. It constantly tells you what to think and never actually entertains - tediously plods through the police procedural set pieces, takes information-dumping exposition to new levels and lazily glosses over scenes which could have been interesting if they had actually been described rather than summarised.
