Malmo book 3
on 3 May 2018
I'd read the 2 previous Inspector Sondstrom Malmo novels, and found them quite entertaining. Anita as the lead character is not your average Scandi noire Inspector, but she does have many of their weaknesses. A missing husband, a drifter son and the ability to fall for almost any character that we all can see is not going to work.
She is surrounded by the usual mix in the polishus , friends, rivals, and downright enemies, all of whom surface in this volume. She also in this and the previous one has a junior sidekick called Hakim from an immigrant Moslem family which adds another dimension.
She lived part of her early life in the North of England, and this book shifts between the two locations.
There are 2 main storylines in this which are joined by another kill in the latter stages.
My only criticism is the speed with which everything is sorted in the last couple of chapters
That withstanding, I did enjoy this, would recommend the series and will look forward to book 4.
