Currently Reading - Midwinter Sacrifice, Mons Kallentoft

Yes ... well ... brave statement land 'Don't bother with Stieg Larsson, Kallentoft is better - Magnus Utvik, leading Swedish book critic'

From the Blurb:

'An investigation consists of a mass of voices, the sort you can hear, and the sort you can't.  You have to listen to the soundless voices, Malin.  That's where the truth is hidden.'

The snow covered all tracks, as the killer knew it would.  But it couldn't hide the victim, the man who now hung naked from a lonely tree on a frozen plain.

Malin Fors is first on the scene.  A thirty-one-year-old single mother, Malin is the most talented and ambitious detective on the Linköping police force, but also the most unpredictable.  She must lead the investigation while keeping her fractured life on the rails.

Opening Lines:


Östergötland, Tuesday, 31 January

In the darkness

Don't hit me.  Do you hear me?  Leave me alone.
