      This book really made sense to me because I have a daughter that is living in Austria and had to learn German. Although, that's were it ends with the story. Christer makes it sound like nothing was out of the ordinary at first but Martin and Liv had a small meeting of the extraordinary kind. He lent her money and it was to be paid back the next day. That's where the story begins and it has three changes to it where each time it is resolved it becomes different. I liked the story because of the c [...]

      Having never read this kind of genre before I began with an open mind, however, it did become difficult to get into the story as many sentences did not need to be there and did not help the story in any way. Skip past all that and there is a really good, strong story within it that kept me interested. There are core characters who we follow within the novel and Elin became the most dominant one which I'm a little unsure of as surely, Martin should be the main focus? If you can ignore the pointle [...]

      For a first novel, I say well done Mr. Tholin! The characters are well-developed and the scene descriptions are detailed and excellent, leaving the reader to feel that they are traveling through Sweden on this adventure with Martin, the main character, as a brief respite turns into something other than relaxing! Lots of twists and turns keeps the reader guessing. There may have been a few translation issues, hence the 4 stars. All and all an exciting read!

      I thought this was a good book. A bit different. I was surprised to discover that the two people who were the main characters in this book are not the primary characters in the series, but that the two detectives that helped them are. I thought the translation was a bit odd, especially in the early portion of the book which had several words that I think had just been made up

      Well-done!An entertaining read. A series in the offing? Lars and Elin seem to have a future together! Good translation, too.
