From Sweden With..Crime

From Sweden With..Crime

The Crow Girl, by Erik Axl Sund

I don’t know about you, but when I think about Scandinavia I think of uncontaminated nature, wild animals, lots of snow and Santa Claus. Who ever knew that people up there are master crime fiction writers? Nothing new, right? If you like the genre you sure know (and love) names as Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbø and Hanning Mankell.

The newest crime novel sensation comes from the Swedish duo Jerker Eriksson and Håkan Alxlander Sundquist and The Crown Girl is no kidding -784 pages! 

cover82181-medium.png In a Stockholm city park, police discover the hideously abused body of a young boy. Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg heads the investigation, battling an apathetic prosecutor and a bureaucratic police force unwilling to devote resources to solving the murder of a nameless immigrant child.

But with the discovery of two more mutilated children’s corpses, it becomes clear that a serial killer is at large. Jeanette turns to therapist Sofia Zetterlund for her expertise in psychopathic perpetrators, and their lives become increasingly intertwined, professionally and personally.

Don’t let those 784 pages intimidate you. If you like dark stories full of characters and twist and turns, this might be the book for you.

The Crow Girl  confirms -once again- the astounding talent of Swedish writers for crime novels. This gripping psychological thriller that digs deep into Swedish society comes out with a very dark and disturbing story.

Are You Ready for a Thrill Ride?

Are You Ready for a Thrill Ride?

All the Missing Girls, by Megan Miranda

 Gillian Flynn paved the way for a lot of girls to come. Some got crazy, otherscover80631-medium.png missing and others got crazy because missing. Some of those books were riveting, others not so much. That is why I am a bit skeptical when I see the word “girls” on the title.

Megan Miranda took her chance with this “girl thing” and she came back with a compelling novel!

Just for the sake of  your curiosity, this breathtaking story is about the disappearances of two young women -a decade apart- told backwards.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left Cooley Ridge after her best friend Corinne disappeared without a trace. Back again for some family business, Nic is plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds.

When another girl  -Annaleise Carter – goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbour’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Presented as the next The Girl on the Train or Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel All the Missing Girls is even better! Original, engaging and beautifully written. Megan Miranda’s writing style is something you could easily get addicted to.

All the Missing Girls has it all! A spine-tingling ride from beginning to end.
