review 1: I'd really enjoyed some Swedish mystery and crime novels last year, so was looking forward to reading this one by Mons Kallentoft... but unfortunately I literally had to force myself to finish this one. It seemed to me that either the writing style is disjointed and affected, or the translation was badly done.

Am reading the English PB edition, not featured on GoodReads.
The third of the Malin Fors series. An enjoyable read.
Great read! On to the next on his series.
Depressing. Too many flashbacks.
