Time is running out, or so they feel, the people around Eka estate. Petra falls in love again, almost by choice, to Tord, a married man. And Tord’s wife, deliciously nasty Adéle – the definitive wild card of this series – snares a poor preacher in parasitic love. And world-weary Hans, always full of longing for something more, gets word he is in fact dying of cancer, and makes the shaky decision not to tell his family.

This is a weaker book than the previous parts, perhaps because hasty passion as a theme isn’t necessarily my favorite one. But the boldness with which Krusenstjerna, in the 1930ies, tackles some rather sordid subject matter slices right through time, and her way with characters is sensitive and raw. I’ll absolutely go on reading this classic Swedish series. ( )
