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.
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!
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!
This is a good addition to the series.
