Extremely dark - child abuse, torture, murder, psychosis. Very, very long - 768 pages. But I couldn't stop turning those pages. ( )

Way too long.
Back and forth , chapter after chapter. Same old story
Maybe the translation, maybe the writing
Disappointing ( )

This is a tough book to evaluate. On one hand I loved it and did not want to put it down, but had to due to its length and weight – it is 768 pages long and a rather hefty tome. On the other hand the descriptions of the numerous victims in the story are horrific, and there are many victims in this tale, so reading so much of this is rather repulsive. However, the writing is wonderful, the storyline is intriguing and the end is something I did not anticipate. When I learned that the original Swedish version was three separate books that the English version combined into one, its length made more sense. I gave it a high rating because while I both loved and was repulsed by it, I never wavered in my desire to find out what happened next right up to the end. ( )

I wanted to like this book, but it's slow and plodding, taking far too long to get anywhere interesting and then randomly telling you what's going to happen in advance of plot twists. My eyes glazed over at the thought of finishing it; I'm giving up at the end of Part One. ( )

Boy, this is a difficult book to try and explain and I'm still going back and forth on whether it was a 3.5 or 4 star read for me. It's very long and can be a little confusing but I have to admit, it kept me reading until I finished it. I really liked the character of Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg, but wasn't crazy about the others. The subject matter is just horrible and I don't recommend this book for the tender hearted. The first third of the book leads you in one direction, and the last third of the book undermines everything you believed. While The Crow Girl is one of the more challenging books I've read, I am glad I read it because it gives you a glimpse into the mindset of the mentally ill. It's also a pretty good murder mystery that takes you down several different paths before coming to a heartbreaking end. ( )

Dunkelt är vårt liv. Stor vår medfödda bevikelse - vilken gör att så många sagor överhuvud blomma i Skandinaviens skogar - dystert kolnar vårt hjärtas hungereld. Många blir kolvaktare vid sitt eget hjärtas mila; lägga i fördrömmelsens krymplingsskap örat till och höra hur det susande förbrinner.

Ur Nässlorna blomma av Harry Martinsson

Huset var hundra år gammalt och de gedigna stenväggarna var metertjocka, vilket betydde att hon antagligen inte behövde isolera dem, men hon ville vara på den säkra sidan.
