Library Journal Review

Rich in suspense, history, characters, and especially secrets, this fifth entry in Lackberg's Swedish detective series (after The Stranger) is exciting and thought provoking, with a fast-paced plot that addresses past and present-day prejudices and their consequences. After crime writer Erica Falck made the puzzling discoveries of a Nazi war medal and diaries among her late mother's possessions, she reached out to a friend of her mother's for answers. He evaded her questions, then died violently several days after speaking with her. Falck's husband, Det. Patrik Hedstrom, is pulled into the investigation. For those who enjoy the sometimes hilarious relationships among the members of the Fjallbacka police force and the complex conflicts and ties among the Hedstrom and Falck families, this is a must-listen. Some new characters are introduced and minor characters given more of the spotlight all are well drawn and essential. Beautifully narrated by Simon Vance. VERDICT An excellent entry in a solid series. ["Though dealing with the serious subjects of extremist groups and prisoners of war, the novel has its humorous moments. Recommended for the author's fans as well as lovers of Scandinavian mysteries," read the review of the Pegasus Crime hc, LJ 4/1/14.] Sandra C.
