I think, dear reader, that it might be time I promised to stop explaining I'm running late in posting this - if you'll just take it as a given that I should have done everything a few days ago.  Mostly, this time, because I've nearly finished this book.  A debut novel which is "blurbed" as 'Ice-cold suspense from Sweden's new Agatha Christie'.  Now I'm not 100% sure what that means - but I doubt it will do the book a whole lot of service.  Okay, it's a little bit of a closed community because it's snowing and it's a small town, but it's not really.  It's certainly not a "no sex please, we're British" style - there is quite a bit of sex and family violence and whilst it's certainly not explicit, it's there.  Anyway - more of that in the review as I should finish the whole book in the next couple of days.

The Blurb:

"Returning to her hometown after the funeral of her parents, writer Erica Falck finds a community on the brink of tragedy.  The death of her childhood friend, Alex, is just the beginning.  Her wrists slashed, her body frozen in an ice-cold bath, it seems she has taken her own life."

The First Line:

"Eilert Berg was not a happy man.  His breathing was strained and his breath came out of his mouth in little white puffs, but his health was not what he considered his biggest problem."
