The Fire Witness by Lars Kepler was first published in 2011 and has been published again in November 2018 by Vintage Crime/Black Lizard. Lars Kepler in the pseudonym used by married couple Alexander Ahndoril and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril. This is #3 in their Joona Linna series and it can easily stand alone if you have not read the previous books. However, this series is so intense that readers will enjoy reading everything by Lars Kepler. Joona Linna is a troubled detective in Sweden. He is called upon to observe the investigation of a double murder which takes place at a home for troubled teenage girls. A resident and a caretaker have been killed and a missing girl is believed to have committed the crimes. The detective is approached by a medium who claims to have been visited by the ghost of the murdered girl and Linna is intrigued by this. The story develops quickly but nothing is as it seems. This suspenful read will appeal to readers who enjoy murder mysteries with a twist. Thank you to Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Jeg digger Jonna! Spenningen stiger for hvert minutt jeg hører, og det skjer så mye, men samtidig gjør det ingenting. Man får virkelig med seg alt! Veldig spent på fortsettelsen og jeg håper jeg får vite mer om Suni og Lumi! ( )

given that it's translated may cause some disconnect. there is places where it's drawn out, the main character Joona seems to be an single man show trying to prove himself to the world. however it was a decent read, the paths that it takes aren't really what you except. however the last 4-10 chapters of the book has nothing to do with this book's plot line, but links back to i'm assuming another book.

not the best thing i've read, but well worth reading if you like mysteries. ( )

A book that I'm very happy with.
Fast paced action, a chief of police who wants to investigate but is hindered by an ongoing investigation by internal afairs, a murderer who múst have done the deed and many different characters who also mingle with the investigation and/or the plot. A nice read! ( )
