Publisher's Summary

No. 1 international bestseller and Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg’s new psychological thriller – irresistible for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo.
On a late summer’s night, a young woman jumps in her car, her hands slippery with blood on the steering wheel. Taking her five-year-old son, Nathalie flees to the only safe haven she knows: the island of Gråskär off the coast of Fjällbacka…
Meanwhile, Detective Patrik Hedström has barely stepped foot inside his office following a lengthy sick leave before he catches a murder investigation.
A man has been murdered in his home: the victim, Mats Sverin, was the council’s financial director, heading up a regeneration project worth millions. But when Patrik and his team start digging into the dead man’s life, all they can uncover is unanswered questions. Why was Mats in such a rush to return to his home town of Fjällbacka after years in Gothenburg? And is it pure coincidence that Mats’s childhood sweetheart Nathalie has also suddenly returned to the area? Mats visited Nathalie on Gråskär before his death.
The locals call the island ‘The Ghost Isle’ – they say that it’s haunted, and that the dead have something to tell the living. But will anyone get close enough to uncover the dark secrets that lurk there?

disappointing

What would have made Patrick Hedstrom and Erica Falck (7) – The Lost Boy better?

I wonder if the translation to English lost much of the impact. I found the constant use of common similes and metaphors childish and infuriating.

The story itself was gripping - but I struggled to continue listening as the writing constantly annoyed me.

I also did not like the narration - the tone varied between condescending and pathetic - not enough variation for other compex characters again - most annoying


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The relationship between the "now" and "then" - which had me trying to work out the connection.

Re reference to parts already told. Did the writer think I couldn't remember?


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robin Bowerman?

Sean Barratt
