An ordinary outing takes Greta, Alex, and four-year-old Smilla across Sweden's mythical Lake Malice to a tiny, isolated island. While father and daughter tramp into the trees, Greta stays behind in the boat, lulled into a reverie by the misty, moody lake...only later to discover that the two haven't returned. Her frantic search proves futile. They've disappeared without a trace. Greta struggles to understand their eerie vanishing. She desperately needs to call Alex, to be reassured that Smilla is safe, or contact the police. But now her cell phone is missing too. Back at her cottage, she finds it hidden away under the bedsheets. Had she done that? Or had someone else been in the cottage? But who, and why? As Greta struggles to put the pieces together, she fears that her past has come back to torment her, or she's finally lost her grip on reality... In this dark psychological thrill ride--with more twists than a labyrinth and more breathless moments than a roller coaster--Greta must confront what she's always kept hidden if she has any hope of untangling the truth.… (more)

The Missing by Caroline Eriksson was billed as a psychological thriller. There is potentially something interesting in the narrative, but it is so convoluted that whatever could be interesting is lost. The story becomes more unbelievable as it progresses. I listened to the Audible version in which the narration was superb; too bad the story was so disjointed ( )

3.5 stars - this was a quick and easy read. It pulled me in with the twists and turns - every time I thought I had something figured out, I was wrong. The characters aren't particularly likable or well developed but the suspense of the book makes up for it. If you like thrillers and want a quick read, this is an ideal book. I received an ARC of this book from Goodreads. ( )

Psychological thriller which is hard to follow and centres around a woman in an abusive relationship whose partner disappears whilst they are staying at a summer cottage in the Swedish lakes. Not an uplifting story with no redemptive ending or very sympathetic characters. ( )

Book description
An ordinary outing takes Greta, Alex, and four-year-old Smilla across Sweden’s mythical Lake Malice to a tiny, isolated island. While father and daughter tramp into the trees, Greta stays behind in the boat, lulled into a reverie by the misty, moody lake…only later to discover that the two haven’t returned. Her frantic search proves futile. They’ve disappeared without a trace.

Greta struggles to understand their eerie vanishing. She desperately needs to call Alex, to be reassured that Smilla is safe, or contact the police. But now her cell phone is missing too. Back at her cottage, she finds it hidden away under the bedsheets. Had she done that? Or had someone else been in the cottage? But who, and why? As Greta struggles to put the pieces together, she fears that her past has come back to torment her, or she’s finally lost her grip on reality…

In this dark psychological thrill ride—with more twists than a labyrinth and more breathless moments than a roller coaster—Greta must confront what she’s always kept hidden if she has any hope of untangling the truth.
