Rebecka Martinsson series Book #4

From The Book:
the body of a young woman surfaces in the River Torne, in the far north of Sweden. Meanwhile, Rebecka Martinsson is working as a prosecutor in nearby Kiruna. Her sleep has been disturbed by haunting visions of a shadowy, accusing figure. Could the body be connected to the ghostly young woman in her dreams? Joining forces once again with Police Inspector Anna-Maria Mella, Rebecka is drawn into a murder and missing-person investigation that becomes entangled with old rumors of a German supply plane that mysteriously disappeared in 1943. Shame and secrecy shroud the locals' memories of the war, with Sweden's early collaboration with the Nazis still a raw wound. And on the windswept shore of a frozen lake lurks a faceless killer determined to keep the past buried forever beneath half a century's silent ice and snow.

My Thoughts:
This is a mystery novel with a not too complex story line, time shifting from the WWII, to the present day, to the spirit world. Parts of the story are told by the spirit of the young diver left to drown under the ice along with her boyfriend. A word of Warning The story was very interesting...hence the 3 stars...but the author seems to have a penchant to include horrific animal abuse in her stories. some people won't mind. I do. I don't think I'll be reading another one. ( )

A very good read, a little different from your average Scandinavian thriller and all the better for it.
My only regret is reading it out of sequence (which I never normally do) and having spoilers for the previous two book in the series. ( )

Wow, this installment of the Rebeckah Martinsson series starts out with one of the most claustrophobic, scary murders I've ever come across in a mystery. It makes for a very compelling start, and Larsson gets back to her trademark tight narration here. The various threads of the plot come together in a very satisfying way, and there's an especially interesting backstory here about Sweden's role in WWII. Hurrah! ( )

Read this while ill - which was great as it kept my interest and the print was very large! But did not resonate with me the way the other books have done. The ghost allows the author to show the players in the drama from the inside - but feels a bit clumsy, perhaps because ghosts do not resonate with my own world view. Nice to spend a day with the regular characters, who are all old friends - Anna-Maria Mella and Stalnacke in the police, Sivving Fjallborg her neighbour, a new friend and dog handler Krister Eriksson and herself, Rebecca Martinsson.

LT review:
A young couple, who are diving in a frigid lake to explore the possibility that there is a downed WWII plane on the bottom, are deliberately prevented from surfacing through the ice hole and both drown. At first thought to be a tragic accident, small clues lead the police to start thinking this may have been a murder. Rebecka Martinsson is now prosecutor in her home district and she joins the local police (who we have come to know in the previous books) to investigate. This particular installment leans a bit more towards the thriller subgenre, culminating in a very well done chase and survival scene (I'm not giving any hints).

Very good. A little woo-woo with Wilma's ghost as occasional narrator, but not annoying. Good characters and writing.

Book description
As spring arrives in the far north of Sweden, a young woman's body surfaces through the breaking ice of the River Thorne. At the same time, visions of a shadowy figure haunt the dreams of Rebecka Martinsson, a prosecutor in nearby Karuna. Could the body belong to the ghost in her dreams? And where is the dead girl's boyfriend?
Joining forces once again with Police Inspector Anna-Maria Mella, Rebecka finds herself drawn into an investigation that stirs up long-dormant rumors of a German supply plane that went missing in 1943—and of Nazi collaborators in the town, where shame and secrecy shroud the locals' memories of the war.
And on the windswept shore of a frozen lake lurks a murderer who will kill again to keep the past buried forever beneath half a century's silent ice and snow.
