Publisher's Summary

A rising star in Scandinavia and winner of the Swedish Crime Academy Award, Kjell Eriksson pens mysteries that chill and electrify a steadily growing legion of fans across Europe and beyond.

A daunting murder investigation finds Ann Lindell and her colorful team tracing clues back to a local restaurant and its owner, a man concealing a dark past. But he's not the only person at the restaurant worthy of suspicion.

Promising start, but suffered in translation

I just never really got into this book. I think a lot of the problems comes from the choppy phrasing, which I assume arises from poor translation and not the original narrative. Also, I feel this would have much more gripping if Eriksson had stayed to a strict "police procedural" format instead of veering off into psychoanalysis.

The narrator does a good job with the varying characters.

Good but not great

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Hardcopy yes, audible no.

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

The brothers.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His tone range was very poor. His inflections when speaking as a woman were brutual.

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

No
