    1. A typical Scandinavian crime novel Imaginative settings on the island Gotland that lays in the Baltic sea outside of Sweden This is a book I would recommend Fast paced, original in its genre and with unexpected twists I also think the translator did a good job with this one and that is very important to me There are so many bad translations out there, honestly I almost stopped reading books in translation for this reason and that is a true shame I think that the Scandinavian crime novels are wor [...]


    2. This was an excellent read It is the first book I have read by this author, but I will of her books.The book opens with murder of a man in a seemingly random, motiveless killing The police seem to be getting nowhere with their investigation and though there are many false leads it is not till much later that the loose ends are tied up.Alongside the main story we are allowed glimpses into the past One of the qualities I liked about Mari s writing is her feminine insight into a brutal world As sa [...]


    3. Imagine the scene You re on the most isolated island in the Baltic Sea, Gotska Sand n, which is north of Gotland, Sweden The perfect place for a holiday The ideal beach for a morning jog Until a body is found, a man murdered in cold blood Why on earth would a family man be killed in this way Assistant commissioner Karin Jacobsson is assigned to the case and as boss Anders Knutas is away on holiday, she has her work cut out TV reporter Johan Berg is also on the story but he has personal issues he [...]


    4. Murder comes to a peaceful campsite, a body is discovered in the sea, the Summer is tainted and Knutas cancels his holiday to resume control of the investigation.This is now the 5th episode of crimes on and around Gotland that are available in the UK We meet familiar characters, their stories are advanced but the crime fails to be solved.The mystery seems to be linked to events some 20 years before, it is one of the oldest motives for murder, revenge, but what horrors occurred in the past and wh [...]


    5. I love Swedish mysteries and this one by Mari Jungstedt does not disappoint I loved reading it and hated to put it down.Karin Jacobsson is the acting deputy superintendent of the Gotland Police department because her boss, Anders Knutas, is on vacation in Denmark While she is in charge, a murder takes place on Faro Island A man by the name of Peter Bovide is shot once in the head and several times in the abdomen while out for an early morning jog Interestingly, the weapon used is an old Russian [...]


    6. I keep seeing Scandinavian etc novels on the shelves The blurbs keep telling me in breathless prose how wonderful and arresting and glorious these books are I keep falling for it.No .I think it s the translations, not the books themselves, but they are just so clumsy Look, the quality of writing means a lot to me I appreciate that other people don t think it s that big a deal, but I can t enjoy a book if the writing doesn t appeal to me.The way these books are written translated robs them of flo [...]


    7. A man, Peter Bovide, is viciously shot from close range on a remote beach on a remote island in Sweden The new assistant superintendent, Karin Jacobsson, is in charge because the superintendent, Anders Knutas is on vacation Karin calls in help from Stockholm a news reporter finds some information the ferry captain describes the three cars on the ferry early the morning of the killer, but the occupants appear to check out Bovide is found to have hired some illegal Russians in his construction bus [...]


    8. Couldn t stop reading it So thrilling, a real page turner I enjoyed the feminine focus that is kind of rare in other crime novels I m not a hard core crime lover so this book was really something for me since it had both the thrilling crime plot as well as the relational drama This was the first book I read by Mari Jungstedt and I will definitely read her other books.



    9. I loved this book, the throwbacks to the past were boring until the last two, but it tied into the ending well Worth a read.


    10. 2 estrellas no est mal En esta novela tenemos como protagonista a Karen, Knutas queda en un segundo plano y me ha gustado conocer m s a la subcomisaria y comprender m s su personalidad Desde el principio sab a qui n era el mal y por ese le he dado solo dos estrellas, es que desde las primeras p ginas y teniendo en cuenta como me sorprenden siempre los finales de la saga me ha decepcionado, a n as , pasan algunas cosas muy muy interesantes que me har n continuar.


    11. Det enda som f ngade var en r tt intressant upptakt, men det r ckte inte l ngt Urtr kig gestaltning, k nns som om en f rfattarrobot anlitats av f rlaget Roboten vet kanske i vilken ordning orden b r komma, men lyckas inte gjuta in liv i karakt rer, platser eller handling Trist som ett fladdrig kvitto fr n ICA Maxi.


    12. Bra och l ttl st bok Det h r blir femte boken p rad jag l ser i serien om Knutas, tycker det blir lite upprepningar av f rfattaren Utredningen st r alltid still och de har inga ledtr dar och r det sommar s r det alltid rekordvarmt och superfint v der Det r v l hennes stil antar jag, trots det s r det nog en av de b ttre jag har l st av henne


    13. No deja de sorprenderme Mary, su forma de redactar es incre ble, me encanta c mo va llev ndote a trav s del crimen logrando que t tambi n hagas tus propias deducciones Lo que es ella y Camilla Lackberg me fascina su escritura.


    14. This is the first book that I ve read by this author I ll definitely read However, it does seem to add to the ouvre of dark mysteries or thrillers that seem to end in a dark place I know it s kind of the in thing right now, but I ll keep reading the series for now.





    15. The jogger ran north along the water s edge, the sand heavy underfoot after the night s rain At the promontory he turned and headed back down the beach In the distance he saw a figure walking towards him Suddenly the person stumbled and fell, then just lay there not moving Feeling uneasy, he ran forward Are you all right The face that turned towards him was expressionless, the eyes cold.For the jogger, time seemed to stand still Deep down inside him something came alive, something he had tried t [...]


    16. In die heerlijke zomertijd is het vijfde deel uit de serie rond commissaris Knutas, rechercheur Karin Jacobsson en journalist Johan Berg Ik had Bittere vrucht al eerder gelezen, maar dat bleek het zesde deel te zijn Toen ben ik bij deel een begonnen Je kunt dan de priv levens beter volgen.Het eiland F r , ten noorden van Gotland, is de locatie waar de eerste moord plaatsvindt Peter Bovide, een aannemer, houdt er vakantie met zijn gezin Tijdens het joggen over het strand s morgens vroeg wordt hij [...]

    18. It s been a while since I read Nordic noir I d forgotten how much I enjoy it The Dead Of Summer returns to Gotland, and the folks who reside there specifically police chief Anders Knutas, his deputy and friend Karin Jacobsssen, and reporter Johann Berg Along for the ride are Johann s fiesty photographer Pia and his ex lover Emma As the book opens, we meet the kind, anxious and slightly obsessive, Peter Bovide He s leaving his loving wife, Vendela, in bed while he goes for an early morning jog He [...]


    19. This is the fifth in this series from Swedish author Mari Jungstedt and the second novel to be published in the US, which begins with the murder of Peter Bovide in the early morning hours as he jogged along the beach on Faro Island Bovide was married and the father of two, and there are no clues other than the fact that apparently the murder weapon was a very old Russian gun.The case is assigned to D.S Anders Knutas, 52 years old and head of the criminal division of the Visby police force, and D [...]


    20. I figured out who the murderer was early on If you ve read many mysteries, you can put the disparate plot parts together and deduce whodunnit But that wasn t the problem The ending seemed preposterous and had serious implications for the future of the sidekick detective character, Karin Jacobssen For one, 99% of women giving birth for the first time would a not be able to hide the fact that they were in labor and b could not get up shortly after giving birth and embark on a long journey For two [...]


    21. Kolejna powie Mari Jungstedt, po kt r si gn em po przerwie, tradycyjnie rozgrywa si na Gotlandii Tym razem autorce uda o si osi gn nieco lepszy poziom, ni ostatnio Umieraj cy dandys , niestety jednak wci akcja nie dor wnuje pierwszym tomom cyklu.W S odkim lecie pod warstw kryminaln ogl damy ci g dalszy problem w codziennego ycia komisarza Knutasa i dziennikarza Berga Z tym, e ten drugi jest tu znacznie wa niejszy, i na ca e szcz cie, bo Knutas ma ycie tak samo nudne, jak kiepskie posiada umiej t [...]


    22. An on the face of it middling three out of five, but in truth this was an easy read and an enjoyable read, so I d possibly have given it four had I been in a kinder mood.This is the second book from this series that I have read, and I think my opinions about Mari Jungstedt s oeuvre is a little decided This was a decent little Scandinavian crime thriller, likeable and believable characters, some nice descriptions, and at the centre of it there was a reasonably strong but reasonably predictable s [...]


    23. Dva a pol hviezdicky Kniha zacala opat celkom slubne, zdalo sa, ze nastala mensia zmena Anders Knutas je so zenou a detmi na dovolenke v Dansku, premysla o svojom manzelstve, z ktoreho sa vytratila vasen, a na ostrove Faro sa schyluje k vrazde Vysetrovania sa ujima jeho trochu zahadna kolegyna a teraz uz aj zastupkyna Karin Jacobssonova, jedna z najzaujimavejsich a najnedocenenejsich postav tejto kniznej serie Opat je tu televizny reporter Johan a jeho ufnukana, hystericka priatelka Emma, ktora [...]


    24. I picked this book up in an Indian hotel to read whilst I was backpacking The blurb was short but intriguing and I was interested in reading some crime fiction from another country It turned out to be a very enjoyable read.I got the feeling throughout that it was one of a series of books and Jungstedt seemed to refer to events that may have been covered by an earlier book and having checked on here, it seems that I was right However it doesn t reflect badly on the novel and I was able to follow [...]


    25. I so very much enjoy reading books with recurring characters after two or three visits I feel we are old friends, and each day I look forward to joining in on their adventures Like the previous four novels about Ander Knutas, The Dead of Summer takes place on the island of Gotland This time, a man is shot and killed at a campsite on the nearby island of F r The nature of the woulds lead acting Detective Superintendent Karin Jacobsson to believe the murder is very personal And it s not until an a [...]
