    A good traditional whodunnit 6th outing for Anders Knutas and his team all the main characters are involved and time given to allow their back stories to be developed further This is an old fashioned crime mystery, well written as the detectives rush to find a killer before they strike again.I really like this author, her detectives are realistic and human and try to maintain an open mind and exclude no clue or potential suspect.It also focuses on families, for good or ill and makes your refl A good traditional whodunnit 6th outing for Anders Knutas and his team all the main characters are involved and time given to allow their back stories to be developed further This is an old fashioned crime mystery, well written as the detectives rush to find a killer before they strike again.I really like this author, her detectives are realistic and human and try to maintain an open mind and exclude no clue or potential suspect.It also focuses on families, for good or ill and makes your reflect on your own relationships

    I was impressed with the way the whole story unfolded And Karin s confession to Knutus was a heartbreaker.

    Book six in a series that ought to be read in order New cases but same main characters makes things really messed up if you read them in another order.The case in this one didn t really catch or intrigue me but I liked the character build going on in this book.

    A well written mystery set in Gotland, Sweden, this book offers a murder that is influenced by events that took place many years before It is the latest book in the series by the author with Detective Anders Knutas.

    I have read and enjoyed the previous 5 books in the series but I feel Dark Angel is a bit of a letdown The plot the poisoning of a local events planner is extremely thin and could have been solved in a novella, maybe even a short story, if the police had done thorough background checks, which, obviously as a plot device, they didn t so we are left with a slim narrative padded with alternate chapters of somebody s miserable childhood It all becomes clear about half way through but up until I have read and enjoyed the previous 5 books in the series but I feel Dark Angel is a bit of a letdown The plot the poisoning of a local events planner is extremely thin and could have been solved in a novella, maybe even a short story, if the police had done thorough background checks, which, obviously as a plot device, they didn t so we are left with a slim narrative padded with alternate chapters of somebody s miserable childhood It all becomes clear about half way through but up until then seems meaningless and pointless Normally I enjoy the mixture of home and work life in a police procedural but it s all becoming a bit too right on and politically correct for me as Knutas worries about not connecting with his 16 year old son and feels guilty for the one time he pulls him up I m sure we ve all felt it but going on about it doesn t make for good reading Lastly, I feel that Johan and Emma are now superfluous as characters and add little to the plot This is not a bad book it s just not great

    Is it just me or are a lot of Scandinavian writer obsessed with damaged people I ve read a number of different writers who all feature a nameless person talking about his mother or father or both who abused him physically and or mentally Maybe they don t have any other kind of crime there Or perhaps their readers just love this stuff Actually I did too, but it was really intense This is not the first book by this author, so I do have some catching up to do The books take place on Gotland I Is it just me or are a lot of Scandinavian writer obsessed with damaged people I ve read a number of different writers who all feature a nameless person talking about his mother or father or both who abused him physically and or mentally Maybe they don t have any other kind of crime there Or perhaps their readers just love this stuff Actually I did too, but it was really intense This is not the first book by this author, so I do have some catching up to do The books take place on Gotland Island and feature Inspector Anders Knutas happily married and the father of twins There has been an uptick of violence among teenagers that is bewildering to a lot of people Kids are drinking and having violent fights A boy who was a friend of his children is lying in a coma after being beaten Then a local developer and event planner is murdered Suspicion first goes to his wife whom he was planning on divorcing In between we read the voice of an unknown figure who talks about his childhood with an abusive mother It didn t take much to figure out what was going on here although there were quite a few surprises nevertheless I ll definitely be reading the earlier books so I can do a catch up on her main character though Good read all around

    While ostensibly a murder mystery in the small Swedish town in which the Anders Knutas series is located, the theme running through the novel is the effect of a mother s attitudes on her children, and the detective s relationship with his son The mystery concerns who killed event planner Viktor Algard with poison the night of the successful party opening a new conference center.Initially, the question which arose was whether the murderer could have been someone who objected to the construction While ostensibly a murder mystery in the small Swedish town in which the Anders Knutas series is located, the theme running through the novel is the effect of a mother s attitudes on her children, and the detective s relationship with his son The mystery concerns who killed event planner Viktor Algard with poison the night of the successful party opening a new conference center.Initially, the question which arose was whether the murderer could have been someone who objected to the construction of the building Then news that Viktor took on a new lover and told his wife he wanted a divorce results in additional suspects First, of course, is the wife Then when it was learned that the drink containing the poison was intended for the mistress, suspicion fell on her when she conveniently gave the glass to Viktor when she went to the ladies room.Knutas has his work cut out for him, as he tries to discover the truth of a mixed up family and their attitude toward the mistress, and face his own problems with his son It is an interesting juxtaposition in a tight plot which moves forward at a rapid pace.Recommended

    I read this in Enlish, but the search wouldn t find the English version I really like this series set on the Swedish island of Gotland Johan s ups and downs with Emma need to butt out of the series, but otherwise it s pretty good.
