review 1: This Scandinavian mystery was recommended to me based on my Jo Nesbo obsession and Stieg Larson reads. As a result, I was hoping for the female version of these two. Unfortunately, I was disappointed, although overall I did like the book. I enjoyed Patrik and Erica a lot as a couple and I was surprised to learn that this is the first book in a series. However, the writing could have been more concise -- there was too much filler that was designed to provide atmosphere or secondary character development. Additionally, I'm not sold on the idea of the killer(s) -- I think that was too unbelievable. For such a gossip-fueled town, where neighbors look out their windows at the slightest provocation, were they all really that blind?
review 2: I like to read a good
... more murder mystery and was interested in checking out this author's work. Having previously read Stig Larrson's "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" trilogy, and having loved it, I can't say that this book quite measured up to those books. Some interesting character development but I found a lot of the unfolding plot predictable, well before the actual words were read. Might have to do with the fact that something might have been lost in the translation? less

Great mystery. I had a hard time putting it down. Will definitely be reading her other books.
Great book with interesting story. This is a type of book that you read in 3 days.
Wonderful book with a surprising plot that I didn't guess midway through.
Excellent Swedish author. Books translated from Swedish to English.
Good suspense!
