Review

'Liza Marklund's entertaining series has followed the exploits of Annika Bengtzon, an ambitious reporter on a Swedish tabloid newspaper...An enjoyable thriller, whose melodramatic climax is everything a tabloid could hope for' Sunday Telegraph 22/10 'Pick up a Liza Marklund book, read it until dawn, wait until the store opens, buy another one.' James Patterson 'Liza Marklund is in a league of her own thanks to her intelligent stories, her confident writing and her radical view on society. There is no doubt about it.' Henning Mankell 'Liza Marklund's thrillers are beautifully structured and tautly written. Dynamic plots with suspense throughout.' Kathy Reichs 'An astonishing talent. /.../ Liza Marklund's thrillers are stellar examples of those qualities inherent in the best fiction. She wholly immerses the reader in her world, and she writes with consummate intelligence, consistency and passion.' Jeffery Deaver 'It's obvious why Liza Marklund is such a popular writer, and so beloved by her loyal fans. Her voice is crisp and clean, and she has a knack for building beautifully elaborate and suspenseful plots. Her storytelling captivates readers, keeping them guessing right to the end with twists and turns you never see coming. /.../ I am but one member of a steadily growing group of loyal fans.' Karin Slaughter 'Liza Marklund is the next great Nordic export for fans of crime fiction to discover. her books deliver edge-of-your-seat suspense, sophisticated plotting, complex characterization, and unique locales. Enjoy!' Harlan Coben 'It's no accident that Liza Marklund is one of the most dynamic and popular crime writers of our time.' Patricia Cornwell

Format: Paperback
This is the third book by Liza Marklund that I've read, after discovering the author fairly recently. This one was set before The Bomber but after Exposed and like the others was an excellent read. I'm very glad that I read Exposed first though, as this one mentioned in some detail some of the events of that book and would have spoiled it a little for me. This book was about the murder of a TV personality that could have been committed by any one of twelve people who were present in a castle where a TV show was being made. The reporter Annika is digging into it from the start and this time has a personal interest as her friend is one of the twelve people involved. There was a lot more going on besides the murder, with newspaper politics and Annika's personal life making a good background to the main story. Like the other books that I've read by the author, this was very atmospheric and well written.

This is the first Liza Marklund novel I've read - having been recommended by a friend - and I was frankly disappointed! It lacked depth as far as I was concerned! Nothing like as good as Jo Nesbo, Amuldur Indridason, etc.

Marklund is truly one of the best to come out of Scandinavia. She doesn't try to ape the fashionable 'interesting/challenging/alternative' syle used by some of the new ones, but just writes a good turn-paging story with credible, likeable characters.

Annika Bengkston rides again, with a thriller that drags you along to the exclusion of other activities - unputdownable indeed! - and in passing gives insights into print and TV journalism and how they work, though in light of current revelations in UK, one wonders exactly how much the very ethical stance potrayed herein extends through journalism. Don't start reading this unless you have time to finish it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had started with The Bomber and then back-tracked to Exposed, both of which I thought were very good. However, I struggled to enjoy Prime Time. It seemed like an Agatha Christy Ten Little Indians, where one of a group of Production crew for a TV series must have been the killer of the leading actress. Annika Bengtzon is assigned the journalist scoop and through investigative journalism, otherwise called, Police-work, seeks to solve the mystery. The problem with the book was that the characters were superficial and dull such that after the half way mark, I couldn't really care which one of them committed the crime. I did struggle to reach the Columbo like ending where the suspects were all gathered together for a final show and tell. Overall- below par.

It lacked depth - comparatively speaking. When stacked against Jo Nesbo, Asa Larsson, Hakan Nessor for instance, the psychological intricacy wasn't there. I found it to be an also-ran predictable piece about TV show prominence and shallow ambition. Had it not appeared under the "Nordic Noir" umbrella, it would not have been a buying choice - I expected more.

Although the story line was good I found that I was skipping passages of descriptive prose that didn't really have anything to do with the story. eg long description of the technical side of broadcasting. I felt the story needed to move along at a better pace.
