In the first story, The Scent of Almonds, you will find a unique story in that its main character is Martin Molin who I believe is the chief of police in Lackberg's highly successful series of books which follow Detective Patrik Hedstrom and his wife journalist Erika Flack.
In the detective series Molin usually sits back and lets Hedstrom do all the investigative work. This time however, Molin finds himself stranded due to an unrelenting ice storm with the family of his girlfriend Lissette on an island off the mainland when a murder occurs. Molin is confronted with a large pool of suspects each with their own secrets and stories t hide behind which only further hinders Molin's inexperience as a lead detective.
When a second murder occurs Molin finds himself in over his head. Will he be able to solve these mysterious deaths without the more experienced Det. Hedstrom? Does he have what it takes?
A puzzling, edge of your seat mystery, with continual twists and turns similar to the original series, you will find yourself engaged to the final page.
The remaining 3 stories in this book are much shorter in length, but equally engaging. Because of they are shorter in length it makes it difficult to review them without giving away the stories. I will say however, that The Widows' Café was my favorite. ( )
