The fourth novel in the internationally bestselling Malin Fors series, a Swedish crime-writing phenomenon, perfect for fans of the television series The Killing and The Bridge.
The Swedish town of Linköping is bathed in Spring sunshine. The trees are blossoming and families are having breakfast at outdoor tables in the main square. Then a deafening explosion rips through the air. Broken glass and tulip petals cover the cobblestones, and two little girls, twin sisters, are killed while their mother is left fighting for her life.
Detective Inspector Malin Fors has just attended her own mother's funeral when she is summoned to the devastating scene. But, although Malin is plagued with questions about her past and the secrets her mother never revealed, she must once again bury her own pain if she is to find Tuva and Mira Vigerö's killer before he strikes again.
"Kallentoft's books have been called beautiful, exquisite and original. I can see why" (Literary Review)
"Don't bother with Stieg Larsson, Kallentoft is better" (Magnus Utvik, Sweden's leading critic)
"It is Kallentoft's characterisation and distinctive, often poetic style which make his crime-writing more memorable than most . . . It is compelling reading. The atmosphere of oppressive heat creates the sense of a hell on earth, where evil thrives. It is a powerful and disturbing vision." (Canberra Times)

If the format is along the line of this novel, then No.
I am sure there are readers who like this style of storytelling. I did not like the fantasy/supernatural angle.
Annoyed at the inconsistency in the characters, and the perpetual contradiction in the characters thoughts.
I felt it was swampt with moralistic issues and of selfrecrimination.
