review 1: This novel moves along at a good pace and has interesting new characters, and reasonable dialogue. Being reminded every ten pages that Erica was pregnant with twins did become tiresome, though. It would be good to see some character development of the usual police officers who re...

review 1: I had to give this book 3 stars out of 5 and it was mainly because of the crazy amount of different characters and weird Swedish names. The story was great and kept my interest but it was difficult to keep up with all the different characters, I sometimes had to refer back to oth...

review 1: I really enjoy this series - the backstory on the various characters, the plot development - and this one seemed to fall into the regular bucket of "great airplane read" until you found out whodunnit. While generally well set up and somewhat believable, the ending uses a somewha...

review 1: A creditable entry in Lackberg's mystery series set in a small community in Sweden, this story interweaves tragedy from the WWII era with murders in the present. As much a rumination on family ties and vengeance as a whodunit, it kept me engaged even though I figured out fairly e...

review 1: I struggled to get through this book. I found it slow going and I also found Erica's character very annoying as she always seems to be getting involved in things she shouldn't. I have always found Erica slightly annoying but in this book she really frustrated me. Also, Considerin...

review 1: Another of Camilla Lackberg's series featuring Patrik Hedstrom and the characters on his police force. Reading her books in series is the best way to read them, as you build a relationship with the motley crew which people her books. Set in Sweden, Lackberg brings the ascribed ch...

review 1: Real page turner; the 6th book I read by Camilla Läckberg; entertaining plot, complex, with many characters. Very sad story about a boy who was found close to his dead mother and who was adopted, but who did not have a happy childhood with his cruel stepmother, who ultimately h...

review 1: Al leerme este creo que me salte dos libros,no es que no me haya gustado nada, pero si mucho menos que los cuatro primeros. La historia engancha, pero deja muchas historias inconclusas, todo lo que gira alrededor del muerto no es importante, o en la historia de la ciudad, incluso...

review 1: Encore un livre très réussi, à combiner le suspense, l'émotion, le lourd héritage du passé et un éclairage politique (terrifiant) qui devrait faire réfléchir « sur la direction que prend notre société ». Camilla Läckberg procède avec délicatesse, mais beaucoup de sensibilité fémi...

review 1: Think this is one of her better ones. It has several strands, including some serious ones (neo-Nazism and Nazi sympathies from the war being one). A few themes have had an outing before, including the idea of a real person from history not only appearing but having a part in the ...

review 1: Lackberg has become one of my favourite writers recently. I’ve borrowed all of her novels from the library. Buried Angels is another fine crime novel. Lackberg kept me guessing right until the last few chapters. Like her other novels, Buried Angels includes flashbacks to events i...

review 1: I love this series - not as dark as most Scandinavians, probably because of the domestic life. Anyway, an arson attempt on an old house being refurbished leads into a story that stretches back over many years. A family disappears one Easter weekend, leaving only a two-year old...

review 1: Buried Angels by Camilla Lackberg is simply the best thriller I have read in I don't know how long. OK, yes, I am an unadulterated fan of Scandanavian noir but this is a five star plus on every level. The plot leaves you gasping at every unexpected turn, and there's plenty of emo...

English

review 1: Περίμενα περισσότερα από αυτό το βιβλίο. Οι χαρακτήρες και γενικά η πλοκή δεν είχαν βάθος. Διαβάζεται σε μία μέρα αλλά δε σου μένει κάτι, ούτε συμβαίνει καμία μεγάλη ανατροπή την οποία περιμένεις στο τέλος. Καλό για να σου κρατάει παρέα για λίγο, αλλά ως εκεί.

review 1: That'll be my last Scandinavian crime novel. I'm sure part of the problem is the translation, but this book was so stupid. It's impossible for police to be as naive and innocent as they are portrayed here. Encyclopedia Brown would do a more professional job. Most of the "revelati...
