Format: Hardcover
In the early morning a week before Christmas a bomb ravages the Olympic Stadium in Stockholm. Annika Bengtzon, a young mother, who has recently become crime editor on the newspaper Kvällspressen, has to leave her rather strange dream about sex in space to investigate the cause and damage. The remains of the dynamic OS-boss Christina Furhage is found on the destroyed stand, which puts Annika in the middle of a murder hunt. To find the answer Annika starts to explore the life behind the perfect front, which Christina Furhage has managed to create. The bomber has to be found quickly since the Olympic Games in Stockholm is only six months away but when Annika digs deeper into to mystery it puts her and her family in danger.
It is the first time we meet Annika and she is a refreshing change to the usual rather corpulent and arrogant male detective, who features in too many crime novels. The snoopy journalist in her drives her to write - not to solve crimes but a detective and a journalist work after the same pattern. This is a pattern the author knows exceptionally well since Liza Marklund is a successful Swedish journalist. Annika is named after Marklund's daughter Annika and her favorite editor from her time as a journalist on the Swedish national newspaper Expressen Bengt Bengtzon.
Marklund says she longed for a heroine, who reminded her about herself and her friends. A career woman, who has a husband, kids, mortgage and paranoia regarding food and health but on the same time an insatiable appetite on life. Annika is brought to life in a lively but loving manner. She is not a super woman or a Lara Croft but someone closer to human dimensions with a lot of courage combined with a huge curiosity.

I am part of the Transworld Group

This is the second novel that I have read written by this author and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Set 5 years after Vanished, it gives you an excellent insight into what it is like to be a working mother of two children. Juggling the responsibilities of home and work, love for her husband and children but also a love of her work and the difficulties that this can cause.

Liza draws you in from the first page and you grab every chance that you can to read on, you want to know what is going to happen next, you associate with the main character and recognise the feelings that she has. The story unfolds in a systematic way whereby you keep up with everything that is happening and do not get lost due to too many characters or too many side issues. The home life and work life are explained in a philosophical, but practical manner which makes you empathetic but not bored. The reporter goes out on a limb for people, she involves herself fully and makes good judgement calls. Although this is a crime thriller it remains extremely humanistic, the reporter is not superwoman, she is ordinary with normal human failings, in other words she is believable.

Liza's writing style is descriptive, she includes different areas of Stockholm, encourages you to picture the scenes so that you can place the characters clearly. I value her as a writer and will definitely be buying the rest of her books.

Format: Paperback
This is the fourth and final book in my Transworld Reading Challenge and is another new author to me. A Swedish author, who has hit the crime market in UK by storm.

This book is set over seven days and includes three murders. The main character is Annika, a crime reporter who wants to find who is responsible for the crimes.

I really enjoyed this book. I found it to be fast paced and the plot flowed effortlessly. Throughout the book I found it gave us an insight into the possible conflicts faced by the media, in this case the newspapers, where journalists wanted to find and report the real story whereas the editors are governed by the constraints of reporting. This was evident in this book and I enjoyed this side to the book. The main character Annika is a working mother who also has to juggle her career with family life and this is also discussed within the book and I think this will be something that readers can identify with, a real woman with the same worries as many other working mothers.

I would recommend this book to lovers of crime fiction but be warned once you start this book, you will not want to put it down.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a fan of Liza Marklund. I love the way she makes all characters realistic, and she doesn't glamourise the world of detectives or journalists.
Liza Marklund gives her readers an insight to the world of journalism. The main character, Annika, comes to life when you read the books about her.
I couldn't put the book down. Read it! You won't be disappointed.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Nov 2011
Format: Paperback
I love a good crime story and leading the from the front is the Scandinavian crowd at the moment with their brooding landscape, tough people and of course a cracking setting for a solid crime story to keep the reader in their thrall.

This title has great pace, a cracking lead character in Annika and when you add to this a realistic quality that when blended with a journalists curiosity it makes a great start to a book that is going to take readers on a journey into darkness. Add to this a stark descriptive style, a deep sense of foreboding within and it's a story that I had a hard time putting down. Just remember to make sure you have a light to hand as sounds in the dark may never be the same again. Haunting and wonderful, scary and tantalising. Cracking.
