Rebecka Martinsson is heading home to Kiruna, the town she’d left in disgrace years before.
Anyhow, there are various twists and turns, evidence hiding in plain sight, witnesses who lie and fabricate, etc. Having not previously read a Scandinavian crime book, I thought this was as good a time as any to give one a try. You’d miss anything more subtle.
Okay, but read it anyway. Mari Jungstedts’s three Anders Knutas thrillers came nextreviews to appear, but I’ve got to write them first, don’t I? It is only in the second half of the book that the actual crime is featured which cumulates in a bloody ending.
Dark as the usual Scandinavian, but somehow this one has superior characterizations to more than equal the gritty. Contrary to all her intentions, Rebecka risks her job and forces herself to face the legacy of a past and confront the demons that drove her from the town and left her reputation in tatters but she is less certain that she will be able to help Sanna.
I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? If you want more info on the plot and things, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Another thing that annoys me is that there is no investigation at all.
After reading all three of Petterson’s books, reviewing so far only the first, I turned to the genre which Nordic writers seem to dominate these daysthe suspense novel.

The last part of the book, even if not completely believable, was tense and exciting! Because she has the ability to forget.

Because of her profession, she also decides to investigate the finances of the church that had been created by Viktor, and from which almost the whole city was adept. Sanna Strandgord turns to her friend, attorney Rebecca Martinsson for help. A close-lipped community makes things even tougher but threatening to expose some financial scandals proves fortuitous as the truth comes into sight.
Rebecka seems to simply guess that there is something rotten in the city and again simply deduce aaa what it is.

I enjoyed trying to guess whodunit and this book definitely kept me on my toes. Northern Sweden and the aurora borealis dance and flicker throughout.
The Source of All Our Strength. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? There also isn’t a huge amount of detail about the mutilation and we hear about how hideous it is more via living characters’ reactions than through descriptions of the corpse.
Rebecka was extremely annoying as a main character. It’s understandable that some reviewers don’t much like Rebecka: Well this was my first taste of another new female author and was my chosen Scandinavian read for the current month.
