Translated by Marlaine Delargy.
"Fans of Henning Mankell, Karin Fossum, and Arnaldur Indridason will be rewarded." (Publishers Weekly)
"Larsson...delivers plenty of suspense, but her real gift lies in her ability to climb inside the minds of her characters, analyzing their motivations for doing damage and good." (Booklist)

Could not stop listening
This book ranks up there with Stig Larsson, Henning Mankill and Per Wahloo. I felt like I was experiencing what life might be like in Ms Larsson's village in northern Sweden. I hope Audible will offer Ms. Larsson's second book soon.

Interesting narrative, terrible narrator
Not the Asa Larsson's best work but still enjoyable if it weren't for the narrator. This narrator only has two character voices: whiny teenager (even when the characters are elderly) and apathetic monotone. The most annoying thing, however, is the strong American accent, especially when she is trying to imitate a "rural" accent. I certainly don't expect a Swedish accent but a more neutral accent would have been better than and imitation of the US deep south.
