"The body of world-famous journalist Jeanette Thiels is discovered the day after Christmas, frozen in a snow-covered garden just steps from her hotel on Sandhamn Island. Detective Thomas Andreasson finds it highly unlikely that it was some bizarre accident. After all, the relentless war-zone correspondent was no stranger to conflict and controversy--both professional and, of late, very personal. Who would want to see her dead is another story. Enlisting the help of attorney Nora Linde, his longtime friend on holiday, Thomas is anxious for the answers. But he and Nora don't have to look far. The clues are leading them closer to home than they imagined. Jeanette may have made a career out of exposing corruption at the highest levels of world power, but she was also a woman with secrets of her own, and they're coming to light on Sandhamn. For Thomas and Nora, unearthing the deeply rooted deceptions behind Jeanette's death could now put those closest to her in harm's way, too"--Amazon.com.… (more)

Knew who dunnit

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review.

What I like most about Sten's books is they are not as dark and dreary as most of the male Nordic writers' police procedurals. Her characters are good and bad, likable and unlikable. This book is ultimately about hate and power, and what people will do to preserve and further both. Although I realized who the murderer was when an event in the victim's past was commented on, it did not spoil the book for me. ( )

A 400 page book with 107 chapters! The choppy organization disrupted the flow of the novel, making it difficult to follow. A journalist is found dead Christmas eve. Suspicion falls to her "ex" who retains custody of their child, but other suspects and motives exist. The police immediately notice the lack of a computer in the journalist's hotel room, leading them to suspect murder even before the autopsy reveals it. While I like the setting, I did not get a strong feel for it. The police did not seem very developed. I'm sure it's because it is a later book in the series, and I read no earlier installments. I received an advance electronic copy through NetGalley with the expectation of an honest review. ( )
