Danny, the English victim, is a well developed character; the threat to him and its background is the current case that mobilizes the Malmo detectives. A cold case brings back Anita’s arch enemy Alice Zetterberg, an unappealing character. The six actors in the cold case were well developed as was necessary for solving the case. I found the cold case less compelling that the current case because there was less immediate danger, but the detective work and logical deductions were interesting and certainly fit in a police procedural novel. A constant sense of danger accompanied the current case; I found it very hard to stop reading whenever the author turned to that case. MacLeod kept two good plots going throughout the book. I appreciated the fact that the cold case brought in an important, but often overlooked, Swedish historical figure. And the current case hinged on the very real, but surprising, trafficking of young British men to Sweden and other nearby countries. All in all, a good read!
More than twenty books, fiction and non-fiction, are stacked on my night stand. I’ve lost count of the number on my Kindle. But when Anita calls, everything else goes to the back of the queue.
MacLeod’s Malmö series is exceptionally well-written and supremely captivating.
This is a good addition to the series.
I am an avid reader, 3-5 days is about average for me to devour a good book. This one took me 3 weeks! And it was an effort! I am an American who has very fond memories of Malmo by the way, so it's nothing to do with that... it was the pacing and repetitious feeling we were going nowhere, and as it happened... we weren't! The guilty one was really revealed about 80 pages from the end, so for me it was dull, anticlimactic, and did I say... "dull?." I don't get all the hoopla people are writing about this author (though there's nothing lacking in his writing skills). I just don't get the 5 star excitement or that big 'man, I can't wait to read your next book' thrill. Oh well. For the low cost, I'll not complain terribly. full price - then I'd be complaining!
Top international reviews
The books didn't disappoint me, they were varied in their contents, with plenty of gripping action but I felt at times that the heroine Inspector Anita Sundstrom was made to look like a mans view of a stupid woman who was unable to live up to expectations in a mans environment , she never learned from her impulsive actions that led to making very silly, what men would call," typically women's emotional choices", in other words she wasn't made to sound anything other than an over emotional woman in a man's world where she would never fit in.
The 5th. book Menace in Malmo was particularly interesting for me as the very real drama of the slave labour of young men by a well respected Irish family in England took place in the county in England where I now live, I remember it well, it was a shocking story and I believe still goes on.
I would recommend these books for good stories and especially if you want to know more about a very beautiful country.
The descriptions of Swedish landscapes and cities are as evocative as ever, but the storyline, whilst convincing enough, is a bit lightweight. For example, is it adequate merely to say that a would-be assassin is ex-SAS in order to explain why he can track his target yet completely evade a police search?
I'm still finding the author's semantic inaccuracies irritating (ringing hands, lying prone in hospital, onto/into instead of on to / in to, for example). This spoils the flow of the read, and he needs a more thorough proof-reader. (Can I help?)
The ending is satisfying without being final, as a gathering throng of admirers will await the next challenge faced by Anita Sundstrom and her colleagues with anticipation.
Zetterberg, a detective who has had in in for Anita for years tries to make her life a misery, but ends up with egg on her face. Although it can be imagined what happened after the final page, I would have liked the ending to have been rounded off with a bit more added to the conclusion.
Will look forward to reading the next in the series, Malice in Malmo.
