4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Swedish Crime Thriller, 31 Aug 2006
This review is from: Before The Frost (Mass Market Paperback)
I picked this book up by having never heard of the author before. The book was originally written in Swedish and this is an English translation, which doesn't cause any serious problems.

Linda Wallandar is a trainee Swedish police officer following in her father's foot steps (seemingly previous Mankell books have been based on this character). Linda friend Ann gets mixed up in a right wing Christian cult with murderous intentions.

This is a decent crime thriller with an interesting Swedish perspective. Characters are very well developed and although not quite a page turner, the book does happily flow throughout.

Worth investigating - 7/10.
