Last weekend I decided to give myself a break and read what a I wanted from Friday to Monday, which translated on reading detective fiction novel l Unwanted by Swedish author Kristina Ohlsson. Despite hundreds of potential witnesses, no one noticed when the girl was taken.
Her distraught mother was left behind at the previous station in what seemed to be a coincidence. The train crew was alerted and kept a watchful eye on the sleeping rkistina. But when the train pulled into Stockholm Central Station, the little girl had vanished.
Inspector Alex Recht and his special team of federal investigators, assisted by the investigative analyst Fredrika Bergman, are assigned to what at first appears to be a classic custody fight. When I first found this bookI thought it would make a great summer reading, like The Dinosaur Feather did last year, but after I had a look at my plans for the next month, it was clear: So, I started reading an average of pages a day, not because I wanted to meet my imaginary deadline, but because I could not put the book down, not even at 2 in the morning.
The elegieas, as some of you remarked when I first talked about the book, is tough. Crime oristina with to kids are never easy, elegidax they are eerie and scare you to death, or they break you down.
This is not the terror-kind, so when I bought the book I was aware that this book would break me down. And I thought it was fine. For me, crime novels explore the darkest side of kriistina beings: The psychology behind the violence and the atrocity is what we should focus on.
Why do people do the things they do? In the case of Unwantedthis interest was only one more reason to keep reading. The rhythm of the plot is just perfect: The characters were also key here. Lately, characters in detective fiction tend to be a couple with an unbeliavable sexual tension between them and the readers wishing for their first kiss. In Unwantedwe can find round characters, almost human, dancing in the grey areas of life.
Alex Recht is the oldest of them, being in charge of the unit, but it was the female character — surprise, surprise — that I loved: I could feel myself identified with her and some of the problems in her life. I totally recommend this book to anyone who likes detective fiction.
But, beware of the plot. On the contrary, if you are searching for a thrilling detective novel with that wonderful Scandinavian elegidaa so famous in recent years, Unwanted is perfect for you.
Review: The Disappeared by Kristina Ohlsson – A Crime is Afoot
The good news for all those who loved this book is that it is the first in the Fredrika Bergman series. The bad news is that the three following installments are yet to be translated. Apparently they all have an English title assigned, but neither Amazon nor The Book Depository sell them. Wow… it really is!
I read a few reviews on amazon some were not very favourable and one of the reviewers mentions the title refers to the shoes of the girl that are left behind in the train.
Bodies in the Library: Ah, like I said before, nothing for me.
But still sounds like a great book. Don’t forget to share what you think! Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.
