A well written or should that be translated novel. Engaging from first to last page, a modern day but somewhat old fashioned Police procedural, in as much as only one body to investigate. Set in the North Frisian islands, atmospheric clever descriptive intelligent with a terrific cast of characters, especially our smart brave feisty heroine.
WARNING : Story does involve investigation of child abuse and while not graphic could not be to some readers taste.

Ok story, best part that it is set in North Germany. The fact that she has conveniently all sorts of friends in the right places makes this story less interesting. ( )

The body of Hein Bohlen,a social educator and the director of a local children's home,is found dead in a beach chair on Amrum, a small island of the coast of North Germany. At first site it looks as if the man has died of a heart attack.,but his wife has doubts and demands a post mortem where poison is suspected but not confirmed. DI Lena Lorenzen and sergeant Johann Grassman are sent to this beautiful island to investigate this death. They both realise that not everything is as it should be and that the alleged victim and other inhabitants have some very disturbing secrets indeed...

This is a very pleasant mystery situated on the gorgeous island of Amrum but perhaps the end was a bit too predictable.

Still,this is the first in the series,in English at least, and I will definitely try another one. ( )

***** My first thanks must go to translator Lisa Reinhardt because I don't read German and would have missed out on this excellent procedural! DI Lorenzen of the CID is ordered to bring DS Grasmann with her to her home town to investigate a murder that had seemed like natural causes when it happened two weeks ago. She thinks that the assignment is a bit dodgy and lined up some colleagues to give a surreptitious hand if needed. The due diligence is assisted by a few sneaky tricks covered later by admissible means. Excellent read with twists and red herrings dealing with sensitive subjects and some personal interactions with friends from the past.
I requested and received a free ebook copy via NetGalley. Thank you! ( )
