    In the Name of Truth was written by Viveca Sten and translated from Swedish to English by Marlaine Delargy. This is the eighth book in the Sandhamn crime and legal thriller series. The main characters are Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson and prosecuting attorney Nora Linde. I believe this series would be best if it was read in series order. This would provide additional background and show character growth over time.

This is the eighth book in the Sandhamn crime and legal thriller series. The main characters are Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson and prosecuting attorney Nora Linde. I believe this series would be best if it was read in series order. This would provide additional background and show character growth over time. Thomas and Nora are strong main characters with some depth and someone you can root for. Their goals were clear and definitely influenced the plot with believable motivations. The prose was well-written and thought-provoking. Summer season has reached Sweden and with that comes sailing camps for children as well as a high-profile trial. The plot was complex with many sub-plots and red herrings. The reader not only gets insight into the criminal and trial aspects of the plot, but learns about the private lives of Thomas, Nora, and several of the secondary characters. The subject matter of this novel is dark and includes themes such as family relationships, divorce, bullying, mental illness, gambling additions and much more. This is not a light read, but it is well done once you get used to the pacing of switching back and forth between several characters. Overall, this book keeps the reader engaged and guessing. The tension escalates as the story line progresses and the reveal was impactful. I look forward to reading more books in this series. I won a digital copy of this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. Thanks go to Goodreads, Amazon Crossing, Viveca Sten and Marlaine Delargy for the opportunity to provide an honest review. Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way.

    Complex and absorbing! Weave together a plot featuring a court case about embezzlement, a children's summer sailing camp off Sandhamn Island, a stalking pedophile, a runaway girl, a missing boy, a camp leader who suffers from deep insecurities, another couple of boys who would be at home in the Lord of the Flies; then throw in gambling and Lithuanian gangsters and you have one complicated plot for Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson and his friend, attorney Nora Linde to work their way through.

Both unbeknownst to each other pursuing independent inquiries that have them meeting somewhere in the middle. (Oh, and did I mention the wedding?) Nora is working on the court case and Thomas on the camp front. I swear I smelt a wiff of pine needles and felt the sting of the sea spray in the camp sequences. I did dream wistfully of summer and sailing. Putting this complex Swedish crime noir together must have been exhausting and I'm seeing huge maps on white boards dotted everywhere, or maybe a zillion post-it notes joining everything together. Ok, so maybe it was a speadsheet. I say this 'cause occasionally I had to backtrack just to keep up with the divergent storylines and the action. A gripping read that kept me awake long after I'd cantered to the finish line. This was my first read about Andreasson and Linde. It didn't deter me from enjoying the storyline. Though now I am pleased to say I have a lot of catching up to do! An AmazonCrossing ARC via NetGalley

    I’ve been reading the Sandhamn Murders series books in order, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the two main characters, police inspector Thomas Andreasson and lawyer Nora Linde, as they investigate crimes while also managing the stresses of their personal lives. In the Name of Truth is the eighth book in the series, and although most of the series strengths are present, I found myself less invested in this one than in most of its predecessors. (Although I’m giving the book three stars, it’s some I’ve been reading the Sandhamn Murders series books in order, and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the two main characters, police inspector Thomas Andreasson and lawyer Nora Linde, as they investigate crimes while also managing the stresses of their personal lives. In the Name of Truth is the eighth book in the series, and although most of the series strengths are present, I found myself less invested in this one than in most of its predecessors. (Although I’m giving the book three stars, it’s somewhat higher than that, just not enough to round up to four stars.) The story is set in June 2014, about a year after the events described in the previous book, In the Shadow of Power. Nora is prosecuting a major financial fraud case while getting ready for her upcoming wedding to her partner Jonas. Winning the case may be the key to a promotion. She thinks she has a strong case, but she’s concerned that she may be relying too heavily on the testimony of her star witness, Christian Dufva. At the same time, she’s worried about the wedding, because Jonas, an airline pilot, has accepted a last-minute assignment to fly to Bangkok with the wedding only days away. Meanwhile, Christian Dufva’s 11-year-old son Benjamin is attending a sailing camp on Lökholmen Island, near Sandhamn. The experience is not a good one for Benjamin: he is bullied by older boys, and he seems to have drawn the attention of a pedophile who is lurking nearby. After a few days, Benjamin goes missing, and Thomas and his partner, Aram Gorgis, are called to investigate. As they race against the clock to find Benjamin, Thomas is also worrying that his marriage is crumbling. Sten alternates the story between two primary narrative strands: the first focused on Nora—including the trial, the conflict between her witness Christian Dufva and the defendant, Christian’s former business partner, Niklas Winnerman, and Nora’s upcoming marriage to Jonas)—and the second centered around Benjamin and Thomas—including Benjamin’s experience at camp, Thomas’s investigation, and Thomas’s marital troubles. Although the reader suspects that there may be a connection between Nora’s trial and Benjamin’s disappearance, neither Nora nor Thomas is aware of it until the last minute. Sten is very skillful at building suspense, and her narrative technique of alternating the strands of the story is quite effective. But something seems lacking here. I think the problem for me is that Nora and Thomas barely interact. As longtime friends, they have typically shared information about their work and even solicited each other’s help, so it’s frustrating to the reader, or at least to me, that a potential connection between the trial and the investigation isn’t communicated. And although I’m sure that some readers very much enjoy reading about the relationship issues that both Nora and Thomas have been going through, I’m not one of those readers. I prefer reading about the crimes and the investigations. (For the record, too, there is no “Sandhamn murder” in this book; in fact, very little takes place on Sandhamn Island at all.) Nonetheless, In the Name of Truth is still very enjoyable and quite suspenseful. The suspense involving Nora’s legal case is handled especially well. I’m looking forward to reading the next book when the English translation becomes available.

    Nora Linde serves as prosecutor in an economic crime case in which a former partner's key testimony will likely indict. She receives threatening emails. Benjamin, an eleven-year-old boy, goes to sailing camp at his father's insistence. Two other boys immediately begin bullying him, but the inexperienced group leader fails to notice. This boy's father, as the reader knows, is the key witness in Nora's case. Thomas first goes to the camp when a girl disappears.

This boy's father, as the reader knows, is the key witness in Nora's case. Thomas first goes to the camp when a girl disappears. When the girl shows up back at home, Thomas returns to Nacka. The Nacka unit will relocate as part of restructuring soon. His partner Margit received a promotion when he left the force, but she persuaded the powers-that-be to rehire Thomas when he found himself pushing paper in his new private sector position. Thomas' new partner is Aram. When Benjamin fails to show up for breakfast one day, Thomas and Aram go back to the island. Is it a case of a runaway child? Is it a case of bullying gone bad? Is it a case of kidnapping? Thomas and Aram must investigate all this as Nora finds her key witness does not share the same story he told the police once he takes the stand. Her chances of promotion look bleak. At the same time both Thomas and Nora experience trouble in relationships. Thomas and his wife find jobs getting in the way of life. When Jonah takes a flight to Thailand days before the wedding with promises of returning in time, she becomes upset. There is much going on in the installments. I'm tiring of all the personal issues in the novels and wish they would stick to the investigations. However, the mystery and the trial were both satisfying. Both story lines improved over the previous installment characterized by a "stuck in a familiar rut" scenario. (3.5 stars)

One thing I didn't enjoy as much as in the previous books was that both main characters barely interact with each other (a couple of phone calls). After so many books these characters feel almost like family so I wanna see them together!! Changes are coming, both personal and work wise, so I can't wait to meet Nora and Thomas again for book 9.

    Complex story line with multiple subplots and many characters, the story was slow to start with but soon picked up speed when a missing boy got Inspector Thomas into the investigation. His best friend attorney Niora too had an important embezzlement case days before her wedding. My first book by this author, it took me some time to track all characters in my mind. The story unfurled with every chapter. A race against time to get to the truth as too many secrets refused to stay buried. A good read

    I just wanted to get through all the current English translations of these. I’ve fallen out of love with the main characters, who throughout the years are mainly just obsessed with their own hetero partnerships and the creation of children. And I did not get too interested in the murder mysteries because a lot of the time, the dead people were killed because of someone else’s vengeance motive, so this meant that the murder victims were unsavory nasty folks... No no. Not true. A lot of the time in I just wanted to get through all the current English translations of these.

But we’re really tired because our babies aren’t sleeping.” Blah blah blah

    Viveca Sten amazes me in how she plants red herrings early to confuse you into believing certain people are guilty of a crime and then it is the other person. She has several scenarios to work with in creating her story. Scenario 1 was between Niklas Winnerman and his partner Christian Dufva. Winnerman was charged with embezzling 10,000,000 Kroner and bankrupting his business. Scenario 2 was between Nora and Jonas, he had to fly to Bangkok and had a wedding planned on the next Friday.

Scenario 6 was Tomas and Pernilla's floundering relationship. Scenario 7 was Pontus Lindqvist as a kidnapper and pedophile. Everything changed when Christian Dufva changed his testimony against Winnerman and Nora had to find out why. But I won't tell you what happens because I don't like spoilers you will have to read the story and find out what happens in all the senarios'. This was a good book to read and I can believe everything that happens in the story. Will you.

I did smile to myself that once again the story is set around Midsummer, which is SO often the case in the Nordic books I read. It seems very little happens the remainder of the year, but woe betide anyone out in that direction at this dreaded time of year !! I was delighted to read that Nora and Jonas plan on getting married, though a little shocked at Wilma's inclusion in the main wedding party, as she has behaved deplorably in the past. Let's hope she's a lot more grown-up now and a nicer person altogether. And talking of deplorables, two boys in this story are utter swines. Your typical rich, entitled, bullying brats. However, most of the fathers featured were revolting specimens as well. I am pleased Thomas is back with the police and didn't choose to stay in security for very long. I had been worried he might take that job and we'd not see so much of him. We followed Nora in one of her courtcases and I was definitely a little bored by that. High financial fraud in business really doesn't interest me in the least. There were very few mistakes I spotted as is usually the case. Was written and not were, the word a dropped from a sentence and a couple of apostrophe mistakes and that was it. So as always, really good going on this front. I'm sure she'll back up to snuff again by the time I get to book 9 and I look forward to it.

Nora Linde is busy preparing for her wedding to long time companion Jonas and simultaneously managing an important trial that could propel her career to a higher level. Her childhood friend, Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson, has just become involved in the disappearance of a young boy from a sailing camp on Lökholmen Island right across from Sandhamn. They are about to discover that their two separate cases are, in fact, connected. The Sandhammn Murder series has become an extremely popular one in Sweden and the rest of Europe and has been made into a popular TV series. This particular book takes many different twists to tell the story of the kidnapping and abduction of Benjamin Dufva. The reader follows Thomas as he attempts to find the serial pedophile and discover Benjamin's whereabouts without success while Nora finds that Benjamin's father has lied in his court testimony and only a sudden discovery by Nora when the time has almost run out helps Thomas solve his dilemma.

They have an unknown suspect, and a great many questions. Poor Isak, Benjamin's camp counselor, is tortured by his own behavior. Did he assist in the kidnapping? This is a very exciting and compulsive read. I just had to find out what happened. I read the book in one sitting. I have read all of Ms. Sten's Nora and Thomas novels, and this one rates as one of the best. Perhaps even the best so far. Marlaine Delargy did an absolutely wonderful job of translating the text as well. The book is very well written and plotted. It is relatively fast moving and Ms. Sten has captured her characters' emotions exactly. The reader is right there witnessing the whole drama in the first person. There are some big surprises in store for any excitement junkie. I can hardly wait for the next installment in this wonderful series.

This main story thread is joined by two other threads. These new threads both involve Christian Dufva. Christian is a partner in the now defunct Alliance Construction. He is the chief witness in the case against his partner, Niklas Winnerman, for the company’s collapse. Nora Linde, a reoccurring character, is prosecuting. The pressure on Nora for a successful prosecution was high because of a number of well-publicized setbacks for her Economic Crimes Authority. Christian is a major character in the third main thread. Christian’s son, Benjamin, by a previous marriage, is a small-for-his-age and introvertish 11 year-old. Christian wants him to attend a summer sailing camp as he did and to meet and make new friends. Benjamin does not want to go. After the day’s sailing, a girl goes missing. Thomas Andreasson, who recently returned to his detective position, was sent to investigate the missing girl. These three main story threads are interwoven into plot that has many twists, turns and misdirections. As with the previous novels in this series, Each chapter is in a different voice of a main character. I quickly was captured. I just wanted to continue to read and finished this novel faster than usual. There are two major B-storylines. First is centered on Nora and her significant other, Jonas. They finally decided to marry in a week and right after the prosecution. Jonas is an airline pilot and asked to fly at the last minute to Bangkok and back. He would return on Wednesday. Things do not go as planned. Much insight into the Nora is seen how she handles this adversity with a major prosecution. The second thread involves Thomas and his spouse, Pernilla. She has a job that requires much travel and after-hour commitments, which is exactly the same requirement for a policeman. Much insight to the Thomas’s character is provided by how he reacts to deteriorating home life, child care, the sailing camp’s missing children, and a possible pedophile near the sailing camp. These B-storylines added poignancy and enriched the novel, and my enjoyment in reading it. This novel is definitely for adults. While there are not any intimate scenes, the language is consistent with the adult characters. While there aren’t any direct descriptions of violence, there are scenes of a child’s confinement. The novel is a translation. In the first novel, I discovered the use many British informal words. That was not the case with this translation. The read was a very smooth for me. My final observations start with this is the eighth novel in the series, and the third that I have read. I didn’t feel anything was missing anything because I hadn’t read the previous novels. Also, all of the various main and B-storyline threads were tied up by the end of the novel. Some not in ways I expected. Based upon my enjoyment in reading this novel and exhibiting all the requirements for a high star rating, I rate this novel with five stars. If this storyline intrigues you, do give it a read. By the way, I recently purchased the five novels that I haven’t read yet. I have received a free e-book version of this novel through NetGalley from Amazon Crossing with an expectation for an honest, unbiased review. I wish to thank Amazon Crossing for the opportunity to read and review this novel early.

He likes boys and girls reaching puberty age. Christian Dufva is a key witness in a trial, in which his business partner Niklas Winnerman is accused of embezzlement. He receives threatening calls from an unknown number, on the day of his testimony in the trial. On the same day, Benjamin goes missing from the sailing camp. Instructors at the sailing camp inform Thomas Andreasson and a big search operation is launched to find him. Multiple threads are running together with each character having a story of its own. Nora Linde is the prosecutor in the case. If she wins this case, she can get the position of deputy district chief prosecutor. Her second marriage is scheduled on Saturday, a couple of days after the trial ends, with airline pilot Jonas. Jonas has to leave for Bangkok at the last minute. He commits that he will be back by Wednesday. She didn’t like this and doubt her decision of marriage with Jonas. Thomas Andreasson is the deputy inspector, who has rejoined the police after leaving a private job that was paying him well, but he was missing his colleagues and purpose. His wife Pernilla has got a job that involves a lot of travel and work pressure. Thomas thinks that she isn’t spending enough time with their daughter and their married life is going to ruin soon. WHAT I LIKED I liked the Cover of the Book, its just so beautiful. Plot was a simple one with an interesting story line. It took me some time to get into the story, but once I did, I didn’t put it down until the end. Each chapter had a story of a different character in third person narration style. Writing Style is simple and smooth, making it an easy read for a beginner as well. The Characters are well written, realistic and pretty detailed. Especially, Benjamin is one character which I liked the most. All his feelings of shyness and fear have been depicted beautifully by Viveca Sten. The Ending of the story was too good with an unpredictable outcome. WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT The thing, I didn’t like in the book was that there was just too much focus on the personal lives of characters, turning the book a bit too long and boring. The Focus should have been on the events affecting the trial and the investigation of the kidnapping. OVERALL It is a good crime thriller novel, with a bit boring first half, but a gripping other half and surprising ending.

    Viveca Sten has long been one of my favorite Nordic Noir authors. She writes short, sometimes one-page chapters, containing short, punchy sentences. The style never becomes obtrusive, merely efficient and a good way of telling a murder mystery. The setting for her novels is Sandhamn Island, off the coast of Sweden, close to Stockholm and there is a lot of sailing there. As in previous Sandhamn novels, Nora Linde, lawyer, and Thomas Andreasson, Detective Inspector, are featured, but not in the se Viveca Sten has long been one of my favorite Nordic Noir authors. She writes short, sometimes one-page chapters, containing short, punchy sentences. The style never becomes obtrusive, merely efficient and a good way of telling a murder mystery. The setting for her novels is Sandhamn Island, off the coast of Sweden, close to Stockholm and there is a lot of sailing there. As in previous Sandhamn novels, Nora Linde, lawyer, and Thomas Andreasson, Detective Inspector, are featured, but not in the semi-romantic way that occurs in other novels. This time they are merely unwitting accomplices in a kidnapping and a big trial that Nora is engaged in. The trial involves two former partners, one of which is expected to provide testimony linking his partner to the bankruptcy of the company. Christian Dufva is the intended informant but, on the eve of the trial, he receives a call threatening his family if he testifies. His son, Benjamin, a rather weak 11-year-old, has been sent to sailing camp on Sandhamn Island where he unhappily becomes the target of bullying and, eventually, a kidnapping. While Thomas investigates the kidnapping, Nora readies for trial. She is to get married to Jonas in a couple of days after the trial but he takes a flight to Thailand (he’s a pilot) and his return is delayed due to technical problems. The tension mounts as testimony turns sour, Benjamin remains lost and wedding plans appear to be in jeopardy. The camp counselor in charge of Benjamin, already a victim of severe depression, blames himself for Benjamin’s disappearance and nears a crisis as the tension mounts in at least three directions. I liked the novel, as usual, though, as just one reader, I rather liked the previous sexual tension between Nora and Thomas. I found another Sten novel I have yet to read and maybe that element of her plotting will return and even be consummated. It is my devout wish that consummation occurs. Jonas is a prig and Pernilla (Thomas’s wife) is a selfish bitch so they are doomed as far as I am concerned. I would suggest reading earlier Sandhamn novels to get more of the developing characters of Thomas and Nora, but look forward to reading this one.

She begins receiving threatening messages that her key witness, Christian Dufva, is lying. Her friend, Detective Inspector Thomas Andreasson, back on the job after a brief stint in private security, is called to investigate when a young boy disappears from a sailing camp. Benjamin is the son of Nora’s star witness. Could the cases be related or was Benjamin the victim of bullying that went too far? I enjoy the Swedish setting and the interesting characters in this series. This is the eighth book and although I haven’t read all of the prior books, I am very familiar with the main characters. There are a lot of characters in the first couple of chapters, so that could be confusing at first for new readers. However, it doesn’t take long to figure out who’s who so you can enjoy the story. I have liked each of Sten’s books and this one is particularly heartbreaking in the descriptions of how two older boys torment young Benjamin. His situation creates most of the tension in the book. Nora’s case has some slow parts that aren’t nearly as suspenseful, but is interesting as a whole. Nora and Christian have some conversations about their cases, but don’t really work closely together. I like each character individually, but really like when they work together. Each is having complications in their personal lives and not everything is completely resolved, especially for Thomas, by the end. I enjoy spending time with these characters and was eager to find out what would happen next. The resolution to the cases took me by surprise, but I liked the ending. The next book in the series has already been written, but don’t know when we can expect the English translation. I really like these books and look forward to reading more in this series. The book would appeal to fans of Camilla Lackberg. I received this book from NetGalley through the courtesy of Amazon Crossing. The book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

    I requested this book because I enjoy thrillers and especially have liked other Swedish authors like Camilla Lackberg. This book did not disappoint! I read it in one sitting late at night. It is the first book I've ever read by Viveca Sten but now she is definitely on my radar. I hope her other books are translated into English! This is a no-nonsense thriller, as in it gets right to the point, is written clearly and introduces all the characters right away. Again, like Lackberg's books, the chara I requested this book because I enjoy thrillers and especially have liked other Swedish authors like Camilla Lackberg. This book did not disappoint!

This is a no-nonsense thriller, as in it gets right to the point, is written clearly and introduces all the characters right away. Again, like Lackberg's books, the characters are likeable and you learn about their personal lives as they intertwine with the fast-paced story. I think Sten's writing may be a bit clearer and to the point than Lackberg's though. The book is set near a Swedish island called Sandhamn, which is about 30 miles from Stockholm. A young boy at a summer sailing camp on the island goes missing. There is some buildup before he actually disappears, setting up backstories and potential culprits to suspect. Trigger warning - there is a pedophile bad guy character/suspect who alludes to sexual abuse of a child in his chapters. There are kind of two main characters, and I'm curious if their friendship is explained more in previous books. One is a police officer, Thomas, who is called to investigate the boy's disappearance since he is nearby the island on his day off. The other is Nora, a prosecutor, who has a criminal trial regarding fraud and embezzlement. Her key witness is the father of the missing boy... Lots of interesting paths connect with each other and I really was kept guessing until almost 80% through the book. I will read more of hers.

    Viveca Sten’s In the Name of Truth is a story where nothing is at it seems. As Nora Linde prepares for her wedding, she must also prepare herself for a major trial. She is up for the position of chief prosecutor but if the trial does not go well it could ruin her chance. Everything depends on the testimony of Christian Dufva.

As Nora Linde prepares for her wedding, she must also prepare herself for a major trial. She is up for the position of chief prosecutor but if the trial does not go well it could ruin her chance. Everything depends on the testimony of Christian Dufva. Benjamin is Dufva’s eleven year old son. As a child, Christian spent his summer at sailing camp. Against his ex-wife’s wishes he arranged for his son to attend the same camp. While Christian has fond memories, his son dreads the idea. To compound his problems, he is placed in a cabin with two older boys who bully him unmercifully. The two storylines converge as the trial approaches. Nora has been getting threatening letters and Christian is under pressure from his former partner to change his testimony. His partner is accused of siphoning money from their company until it failed. He swears that it was a deal that went bad and Nora has been unable to locate the money, so Christian’s testimony is vital. Then his son goes missing. Stern offers the reader misdirections at every turn. Prior to Benjamin’s disappearance, another camper had run away. Did the bullying force him to run away as well? Was he the victim of a child predator who had been in the area or was he kidnapped to silence his father? The search intensifies and the tension increases as Sten brings her story to a conclusion that stuns the reader. It is a tale of greed and intimidation that had me reading late into the night and one that I would highly recommend. I would like to thank NetGalley and Amazon Crossing for providing this book for my review.

    At the heart of this Swedish crime series is the lifelong friendship between detective Thomas Andreasson and attorney Nora Linde. They grew up on Sandhamn, part of an archipelago just east of Stockholm, and the books (eight so far have been translated into English) draw on their close childhood ties and their adult professional lives for material.

They grew up on Sandhamn, part of an archipelago just east of Stockholm, and the books (eight so far have been translated into English) draw on their close childhood ties and their adult professional lives for material. In this book, it's Nora's work that's in the forefront. In the Name of Truth is above all a courtroom drama -- but don't overlook the disappearance of two youngsters from a sailing camp, which involves Thomas in the plot. And bear in my mind that as Nora wends her way through a demanding legal tangle, her marriage is just days away and her fiance is stranded on another continent. While the crime-centered plot is rich in suspense, it is (as always) the relationships that set apart this story. Consider Benjamin, the 11-year-old victim of bullying who disappears. Who was responsible: the bullies? a pedophile that readers have seen lurking around the camp? Or an enemy of Benjamin's father, who is a prosecution witness in Nora's trial? I loved this book, but I couldn't recommend it as a standalone -- I've read the previous seven installments, and still there were backstory elements that seemed to pop up out of nowhere. But, please -- read all eight of these wonderful books! Thanks to Amazon Crossing and NetGalley for an early readers copy.

    I appreciate the fact that I had the opportunity to read this book as the result of a giveaway! Thank you. I was looking forward to reading a Sandhamn mystery as I had read wonderful reviews about this author's books.

Viveca Sten had a couple of interesting plots lines as well as an excellent twist which was totally unexpected. I thoroughly enjoyed being surprised! While the ideas were intriguing, I was disappointed in the book overall. It simply did not live up to the author's reputation for me. The first half of the book was disorganized. I felt I was all over the place trying to piece together what was happening. The second half of the book was much better ordered in how the action progressed. It became more cohesive and my interest picked up as the storyline became more urgent. Two plots. One about an 11 year old boy who goes missing from a sailing camp. The second, an emotional courtroom drama. While these two stories unfold, people's lives face challenges as we all do in life - marriage, divorce, infidelity, addiction, downsizing, and the tensions of modern life that couples face; whose job is more important. Who will stay with the children? All these issues swirl around the characters and make them vulnerable and easy for us to like and feel compassion for. It is how Sten crafts her characters that will invite me back to read another Sten novel. My hope is that in the next one, the flow is more methodical so I can enjoy the ride.

    Disappointing I have read the previous 7 books in the series and loved them all. I had pre-ordered this book and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy it at all. The subject matters were way too dark and there were just too many of them. Severe bullying, pedophiles (with continuous detailed descriptions that I started to skim over because they were too unpleasant), mental illness, gambling debts and "enforcers" and their violence - the list goes on. There were no reward Disappointing I have read the previous 7 books in the series and loved them all. I had pre-ordered this book and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy it at all. The subject matters were way too dark and there were just too many of them. Severe bullying, pedophiles (with continuous detailed descriptions that I started to skim over because they were too unpleasant), mental illness, gambling debts and "enforcers" and their violence - the list goes on. There were no rewards, no reprieve from the negative and depressing. And the most interesting part of the entire series - the lives of Nora and Thomas - were an afterthought this time and limited to a few pages. When we finally learned (a little bit) about their private lives, even that was nothing but depressing, except for the very end. There were too many stories happening at once and the suspense wasn't exactly killing me because I figured out the "surprising" twist at the end of the court case about halfway through the book - the clue that was left early on was just too obvious. All in all the book left me with a really bad aftertaste, although I skimmed through almost half of it, especially the bullying and the pedophile's thoughts and fantasies. Definitely not a good read for any parent. I will give the next book in the series a shot, in the hope that Viveca Sten will go back to telling us the story of Nora and Thomas, combined with a good old whodunit.

    Another masterfully written mystery by Viveca Sten. There are multiple plots within this story, all written with depth and fluency that it is easy to keep up with all that is happening.

There are lots of twists and turns that left me guessing and rethinking who did what. Great story with a wonderful cast of characters all portrayed as everyday people with everyday problems while they go about doing their jobs. Loved the book and looking forward to the next in the series. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
