Product Description

Product Description

On the west coast of Sweden, in Skärhamn on Tjörn, Chief Inspector Greger Thulin thinks he lives at an idyllic spot. But even the most beautiful painting can have a faulty stroke of the brush. Hiding behind the walls of Bleket School, are bullying and drug addicted students. Homeroom teacher, Jonas Blomgren, lives on Rönnvägen. Amanda Durén and Belinda Wallin are pupils in his class. Amanda wears designer clothes, spreads money around and lives in a mansion, while Belinda’s family is grateful if there’s enough money to cover their basic needs. Belinda’s mother, Margit Wallin, has a bad feeling about her daughter’s teacher. Could he be following Belinda, and if so, why?

At the same time love is in the air between some of the detectives.

When the first murder victim shows up on Lyckebacken in Skärhamn, Greger Thulin is convinced that it won’t take long for them to find the murderer, but starts to get discouraged when the investigation drags on. Inspector Katarina Linde and Forensic Detective Charlotte Engman are called in and try to put the pieces of the puzzle together from the clues they manage to find. It turns out the victim had an apartment on Eklandagatan in Gothenburg. What was he doing there? Soon Katarina starts to suspect that behind the victim’s family façade, is a man who may be capable of even more than beating his wife. Greger Thulin is forced to ask the unavoidable question; has the peace and quiet of Skärhamn been put in a backpack, thrown on board a boat, and been transported out to sea?

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent read 27 Jun 2014

A good read but not a great one. Great value as it was not expensive. Other reviewers have commented on the translation. It's not perfect but it doesn't detract from the book and it is good to be reminded occasionally how difficult the translator's role is. I will definately buy subsequent novels by this author if/when they become available in English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow beginning, stick with it, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase
An interesting subject, slow to begin , but a controversial insight into family and police procedures.Am looking forward to more of the same from this author, 'Gregor Thulin ' reminds me of Martin Beck in the Per Wahool/MSJowall series of 10 books. A great read .

1.0 out of 5 stars cheap, but not worth the money 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase
I have been reading Nordic crime in translation for many years so was interested in this book as I did not recognise theauthor's name.
It is either poorly written or is badly translated. It was only cheap, but not worth the money.
