Publisher's Summary

The Scent of Almonds and Other Stories is a collection of short stories from the number-one international best-seller Camilla Lackberg. Perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo.
The Scent of Almonds - It's less than a week until Christmas, and policeman Martin Mohlin is begrudgingly accompanying his girlfriend to a family reunion on the tiny island of Valön outside of Fjällbacka. The connection to the mainland is cut off by a snowstorm, and when the domineering patriarch, Ruben, collapses during Christmas dinner, Martin is forced to intervene. He soon establishes that Ruben was murdered, and since they are completely isolated on the island, one of the family members must be the murderer....
A charming novella in the style of Agatha Christie, closely linked to the Fjällbacka series.

Lackberg standard these are not

The narrative is good and aids the stories However I would say that the stories are not of good quality and would not recommend you waste your credit/money on this one. Thank goodness for Audible return policy. I will be returning this one.
