I wish I could give this two and a half stars instead of just two but Inner Circle just falls apart The most important scenes are still taking place off the page which would be fine but suddenly Emma and Johan are back together sort of she divorced Olle even though in the last book she told Johan to have a nice life while I had hoped it was the last I d see of Emma Nope I wanted to read a mystery but what Jungstedt served was something akin to JD RobbNora Roberts The book ends of a cliffhangersort of depends if you care about Emma and Johan I don t I read the series for Knuties and there s less of him in this volume than ever I won t be continuing the series for me it ended in a good enough place An Impolite Seduction (Countess Trilogy you care about Emma and Johan I don t I read the series for Knuties and there s less of him in this volume than ever I won t be continuing the series for me it ended in a good enough place

'One of Scandinavia's best crime writers no mean compliment in a crowded field' The TimesIt's summer on Gotland and an international group of archaeology students are excavating an ancient Viking site The camaraderie and holiday spirits of the group are shattered when one of their number a Dutch student called Martina disappears Rumours abound about a. My review in one word genericMy review in probably too many wordsI will first admit that I was a bit hesitant about this book at first A female Swedish journalist writing mystery novels featuring a journalist reminded me a bit too much of Liza Marklund of whom I m not a big fan And then there is the setting for her series of novels Gotland a Swedish summer destination island with a year round population of about 60000 A series with multiple serial murderers in such a setting reuires a Murder She Wrote level of suspension of disbelief that I have difficulty withJungstedt manages a pretty decent little serial murder plot if gruesome and a bit cliched Unfortunately she doesn t introduce enough characters to make it all that hard to guess who the bad guy is going to be She spends the time instead in attempts to develop her main characters lives which I appreciate However I never really found them all that believable or fullUltimately she s just not a very skillful author perhaps stuck in her past with a newspaper like style rather than tight beautiful prose For example I lost count of the number of female characters whose hair styles and outfits were detailed as we were introduced to them Immediately after reading this book I picked up the new William Tappley Brady Coyne novel and was truly struck by the difference a talented author can make with a mysteryThe verdict A decent little novel for reading on the beaches of Gotland on summer break with a drink But not something I d go out of my way to choose otherwise

O trouble his search When Martina's naked body is found hanging from a tree with what look like ritualistic markings on her skin there can be little further uestion Someone is calling to the old Gods of Gotland Martina has been killed according to the Viking ritual of the three fold death and the one thing the ritual points to is that deaths will foll. Mari Jungstedt was a new name for me in my exploration of Scandinavian noir She writes in one setting Gotland Sweden s largest island off the southeast edge of Sweden and features Inspector Anders Knutas In this case he investigates the mysterious death of Martina Flochten a young Dutch archaeology student in Gotland for a summer of research She is found hanging from a tree with wounds to her lower abdomen and hardly any blood left in her body At nearly the same time a Gotland pony is discovered in its owner s paddock beheaded The head later appears on a stick in front of the house of the next victim Yes we have a serial killer on our hands and not just of people Jungstedt gives us a short course on Gotland history and we learn and about Swedish mythology as Knutas and his allies get deeper into the case There is a parallel case of Johan and Pia a network news team on Gotland who since Gotland is not a great source of stories are assigned to cover the murder of Flochten and the killing of the horses Johan is under stress because his wife is tired of his assignments and wants him home often She comes off as somewhat possessive and nasty Pia is a tough camerawoman just trying to do the job They almost turn into detectives themselves as they interview suspects and victims relatives but they don t often confer with Knutas As usual in Scandinavian noir there are affairs and cross relations galore that add to the fun The fact that the island was once a Viking hangout in the 11th century makes it even intriguing When the plot turned toward an occult circle of associates and friends it became a bit tedious for me but it fit into the spirit of the whole and the ritualistic nature of the murders and horse killings all made sense in that context Not at all an unsatisfactory introduction to Jungstedt for me and a good representative of the genre
