I do wish they'd stop messing with the order of these novels and how they're subtitled, though. I read book 1 then the 2nd released was meant to be a prequel and then the 3rd released was the 2nd in the series. Confused ? No kidding !! It's ridiculous.....
There were two stories running alongside each other in this one and I am hoping we see more of Dunja in the next book and that she resolves things. Fabian really needs to sort out his son as well. He's always been a piece of work and doesn't improve here, either. In places Fabian (and his team's) detective skills could do with brushing up, too. However, his kindness is exhibited in a couple of touching scenes this time out, which was nice to see. There was a particularly nasty killing in this one.....I'm pleased I don't live with such a vivid imagination, I have to say.
There were fewer errors here though I spotted a few, the odd word missed from a sentence, mainly...and this sentence being self-explanatory-"And worse, what headlines would she would create ?" Here, I am thinking that perhaps we lost something in translation..."....when she saw the body tied to the bed with the moustache removed....."..THAT totally baffled me !! There are a lot of characters and police personnel featured in this story and I found myself needing to do the odd search on someone to remind myself how they fitted in !!
I'm looking forward to book 4, although how it will be billed remains to be seen !!
I don’t know if it was because the format of the writing structure changed slightly or that it was due to the fact this one is more of a slow burner I’m not sure. But saying all that I would still read this one again!
The book has 2 storylines running through it which at first seem completely unrelated but as you get deeper into the book lines started to become crossed. When a homeless man is brutally beaten to death, Dunja can’t stop herself from starting an investigation of her own. Before long the clues take her to Sweden and Helsingborg, where Risk is investigating the peculiar case of the frozen millionaire.
Risk’s family play a big part of this one and it certainly takes the story down a path I wasn’t expecting! Fabian’s young daughter explores the supernatural with the help of a friend and Ouija board whilst his son finds himself entangled in a group of youths playing their own version of happy slapping. Onto of that Risk’s marriage seems to be coming to an end as his wife Sonja is commissioned by a wealthy art collector to produce an installation for his home.
All in all this book has a lot going on, all separate but interconnecting in a rather unique way. As i said earlier it is a fairly slow burner of a book but it is worth a read.
It can be read as a stand alone novel but I would recommend reading the other 2 books as it fills in the details of the bits of back story that come up but there are enough details for this to all make sense by itself.
It ends with a few unanswered questions which I am hoping will all be answered in his next book. I cant wait to see what the future holds for Fabian, the Risk family and Dunja.
