'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

I did not realise that it was part of a series when I bought it in Sveg. I liked it so much that I did a search to learn more about the author and to see if she had written more books. What a suprise to find that the book I had bought was part of a series. I went on Amazon and bought most of the series (1-9) secondhand. Each one of them looked in great condition, so I ended up with a great buy.
When I finished book 9 I expected to have book 10 and 11 delivered the next day. To my disappointment only book 11, the last in the series arrived. After checking my account here on Amazon I noticed that I must have made a mistake and did not properly placed the order for book nr 10. Not willing to wait any longer I ordered that one in a e-book version for reading on my kindle. This shows how much I love reading this series. So much so that I look forward going to bed because there is where I do the most of my reading. I fear the moment when I have finished book nr 11. Lets hope that I will be willing to stumble upon another series in the Swedish Crime style which will give me just as much reading pleasure as this series has done so far.
There are enough other reviews going in more detail about the content of this book: Prime Time, so I will not bother you with that.
All I can say is, if you like Swedish Crime style books, I highly recommend this series.
Love the main Character Annika.
There are 11 books in this series and I am currently reading nr 10.
The events unfold between Friday-Monday, 22nd-25th June, coinciding with the Midsummer Eve celebrations. Annika is on the point of leaving with her partner, Thomas, and young children to celebrate on her in-laws’ holiday island when she is called to remote Yxtaholm Castle where a controversial television presenter, Michelle Carlsson, has been murdered during the filming of a prime-time series. The isolated nature of the location means that the killer is likely to be one of the twelve people staying at the castle. Amongst these is Annika’s friend, Anne Snapphane, a broadcast journalist working on the programme.
Thomas, a rather sulky individual who exemplifies man’s inability to cope with the domestic pressures of life, is furious that Annika will not join the family for the weekend which leads to scenes that smoulder throughout the book and allow Marklund to comment on society’s expectations of the working lives of men and women. Annika soon finds out that amongst the police suspects are a variety of people associated with the making of the programme, a British rock-star, a bimboesque TV actress, Carlsson’s agent, several unpleasant reporters and, rather bizarrely, a young neo-Nazi whose only purpose seems to be to provide the weapon.Read 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. Read morePublished on 25 April 2014 by janeby
