Nov 18, Kayleigh rated it did not like it. Lot’s of problems with the translation. The focus of each novel, however, is a crime or crimes that is independent of the other books.

At the end of the book, Erica makes an intriguing discovery about a mystery in her own past that I look forward to her investigating in future.

I also love these books. You are commenting using your WordPress. Not that I need to get drawn into ghe another series but I like the sound of these.
Under the unforgiving media ballows, Patrik tackles his toughest investigation yet. Maybe some other time. I did not like it. The town worthies are only brid delighted with the nationwide publicity, but it isn’t so easy for Patrik and colleagues to cope with the fallout. See all 4 questions about The Gallows Bird…. I find the wealth of characters hard to follow. In this book there are 2 parallel plots– the 1st has to do with a woman found dead at the wheel of her car with unexplained toxic levels of alcohol in her body.
Are they all translated by the same person? The book itself was padded with so much “filler” and “fluff” that it was possible to skip thru the entire book quickly and not miss anything.

In addition, the situation of Hedstrom’s sister-in-law didn’t seem to be handled in a realistic manner.
Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his most challenging investigation yet. And it was lovely to follow Patrik home, and to watch as he and his fiance Erika supported her sister in the aftermath of the events at the end of the previous book in the series, care for their infant daughter and, in between times, plan their wedding.
Just could not get into this book.

Patrik of course is on the case, but can he and his team including new recruit Hanna link up the reasons for these depths. I tue reading your comments!
Review – The Gallows Bird by Camilla Lackberg
Shannon Toney I had to create kind of a phonetic list of characters and how they are related on my laptop so when I start a new book it helps. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
A woman is found dead after running into a tree. Follow me on Twitter My Tweets.
Far too much of this novel was devoted to a narrative about the contestants in some kind of a reality tv show. I won’t go into the other bits that I worked out because that would be a spoiler, but, in short, Lackberg’s plots are not intelligent enough.

Eventually, of course, they linked the two, seemingly disparate deaths, in a very clever piece of plotting. Having the wedding of Patrik and Erica going on in the background was also a nice light touch to the dramatic murders.
Jane — Thanks so much for this excellent review! Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden?
Camilla Justesen rated it did not like it Dec 15, Should I read the previous books to understand “The Stranger”.?? Notify me of new comments bitd email.
But before that there was routine policework, there were flashes of inspiration, and there were some lovely human details that revealed just a little more of the recurring characters. I have read three of Lackberg’s prior Hedstrom books and enjoyed them.
