The Fire Dance: Inspector Irene Huss, Book 6 | [Helene Tursten]

The Fire Dance: Inspector Irene Huss, Book 6

Detective Inspector Irene Huss hasn't seen Sophie Malmborg for over 15 years, but she's still haunted by the strange young ballerina's role in the fire that killed her stepfather. Why had she refused to speak to Irene and the other case workers? Could an 11-year-old - even one as disturbed and aloof as Sophie - truly be capable of setting her own house on fire? Irene's questions resurface 15 years later, when Sophie disappears and the charred remains of a dancer are found in an abandoned warehouse. Irene has a startling realization that could shed light on the case that has been lingering in the back of her mind since the beginning of her career.

    "Better left unsaid"
    What did you like best about The Fire Dance? What did you like least?

    The new characters were wooden and unsympathetic. The old characters did not grow or develop but seemed stuck in cliches.


    What was most disappointing about Helene Tursten’s story?

    No character development and the story was weak.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrator sounded as if she were reading it for the first time.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Seems to me this author needs to find a new, strong editor who can red-line uninteresting prose and send the author back to the drawing board, so to speak. I doubt I will be revisiting Irene Huss again.
