Carin Gerhardsen--The Ginger Bread House,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gingerbread House: 1 (Paperback)
This excellent novel,the first of a series,set in Stockholm,
is an example of Scandinavian crime fiction at its very best.
In 1968,relentless bullying occurs amongst very young school
children .Several years later a series of brutal murders take
place in the Stockholm area.Chief Inspector Conny Sjoberg and
his team eventually find a link between them.
The novel works on several levels.The police procedural aspect,
is skillfully done ,and never less than interesting,as the team
led by the intuitive Conny Sjoberg,a busy father of five children,
attempt to come to grips with the case.There is a sub-plot
concerning one of the female detectives.Suspense is maintained
throughout,whilst the long-lasting effects of bullying are
First rate. Leaves one eagerly awaiting the second novel in
