Product Description

Book Description

Do you really know who your friends are? From the bestselling Swedish crime writer comes a chilling story about the worst of our best-kept secrets.

Product Description

A man is pushed from a cliff; a woman is missing after a bike ride; an elderly man is washed ashore.

The friends are closer than most - too close, some might say. Every year they leave their cosy suburban neighbourhood to go on holiday together to a remote Swedish island. But this year, their holiday won't go as expected.

A terrible series of tragedies will unfold, seemingly random, all somehow connected. Detective Superintendant Anders Knutas will have to look into the friends' tangled pasts to find the truth. What malevolent force has followed them to the island? Or was it amongst them all along?

Even the closest friends don't share everything...

4.0 out of 5 stars Mari Jungstedt--The Double Silence 29 July 2013
By Simon Clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This novel is the latest in the series set on the Swedish island
of Gotland,and featuring Detective Superintendent Anders Knutas.
An exclusive group of well-heeled and somewhat smug neighbours are
on their annual holiday together, when one of them is pushed off a
cliff.Knutas and his colleague,Karin Jacobsson,investigate the death,
and the relationships between the neighbours.The former is distracted
by his marriage going stale,and the latter by her preoccupation with
meeting the daughter she gave up for adoption after being raped as
a teenager.
'The Double Silence' is a well-written and finely translated, engaging
police procedural novel where the author holds a mirror up to a shallow
and egocentric section of society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but... 2 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a long time follower of Mari Jungstedt. This is a very good book but not quite up there with the best. Somehow, this time her characters are not quite as believable and hence the intertwining stories do not have the same edge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well crafted murder mystery 24 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The writer has a great knack of describing details about the settings of the various locations where the action takes place and gives interesting details as she develops the characters involved. Several false trails which keeps the reader guessing until near the end.

1.0 out of 5 stars No! No! No! 3 Dec 2013
I was really looking forward to reading this, having read the good reviews. But I was so disappointed. It was not as descriptive as I thought it would be, the characters were very one dimensional, the chapters ridiculously short, the story extremely short, but that was actually a blessing as I read this with gritted teeth. There was nothing in this book to make me catch my breath, or get my heart pounding. I had been looking for a new series as I've nearly finished all of Jo Nesbo's books, but alas this is not it....

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing 11 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The usual mix of Gotland police procedural and soap opera and nothing much happens for almost half the book and if you missed the character studies in the first bit they are repeated in potted form in the second. Predictable in that no-one but the perpetrator is left (who could have dunnit) and it is a trifle uninteresting. A pity as I like Knutas though I will be reading the next instalment

Slow to get going and all the characters seemed to be jumbled up and a bit confusing to follow at first however, once into story it was good. I didn't find it as gripping as the previous six books but I did enjoy it. There wasn't as much of Anders Knutas in this book discussing the case with his colleagues just seemed to come to their own conclusions.
