My other main concern with this book is that the police procedure is often laughable. Her obsession with interior design reflecting the people’s personalities in this book, because you know if you don’t have hardwood flooring, you are a bit frumpy.

It felt lack lustre, leaning towards the cosy think Midsommer Murders with language sporadically thrown in to shock which just felt awkward. The only pluses were the two surprisingly likable and 3-dimensional main characters, and the vivid setting off- season at a seaside resort town.

The police seemed to miss some important clues and fluff around in the dark a bit too much, and at times it became more cosy mystery than psychological thriller. The “Frosted Princess” manages through its central heroine Lackkberg Falk, a young writer to give us a unique novel full of mystery and suspense without failing to focus on the lifestyle and values of Swedish society. Erica’s obsession with Weight Watchers, her thoughts on urinary tract infections or analysing her weight and her eating all the time, was at first amusing towards the end downright annoying.

I persisted, put it down to poor translation but subsequently checked the translator who is A1 but it was an unredeeming slog.

But this year is very much about broadening my reading horizons and the Swedish setting was a winner before I even opened the book. The novel was a little slow and not as lean as it could have been.

But it does leave one with the distinct impression that this would princeas been a much better book if the author had gotten to the conclusion a lot earlier.

I’m convinced this was romance disguised as mystery. It is the first book that I couldn’t focus on because I kept wondering if the author prinxesa had a real fe This book promised to be a gruesome murder mystery which is not my genre but it was the book club pick for this month so I decided to give it a shot.

I want to give up on this book so badly, but I feel guilty about stopping halfway camillx. In fact, I’m not even sure if it’s supposed to be ‘mystery’.

However – yes, there is a however – the mystery wasn’t that enticing after it was unravelled. In this story nothing was compelling. Quite honestly, this kind of writing makes me feel angry as it reinforces primitive, negative viewpoints-something our society does not need more of!

She was just so bloody dull. Verbal tenses seemed inconsistent, there was some really awkward phrasing This has to be one of the worst mystery novels I’ve read so far.

I cared, however, because as I predicted that it would feature childhood abuse referred to quite often as “assault” which made me livid to say the least. Erica’s first instinct is to write a book about Alex’s death.
