Alea iacta est

tärningen är kastad

She is a detective with the Violent Crimes Division of the Stockholm police department and displays more sociopathy than many of the criminals she deals with. But if you can stomach that, and the child abuse, this thriller will keep you turning the pages. It's also instructive and, for this reader, surprisingly moving in the end. I do have to say, though, that I did not care much for the main character. Every now and again her true self breaks out though - and she offends, and annoys many around her. Any member of the victim's family could have done it, but the evidence is very scanty. .

. I wanted so badly to love this novel, but I was ultimately disappointed. In the beginning, she was so unlikeable and emotionally detached that I originally believed the author had written a high functioning sociopath detective. If we remember we have information that the police department in general does not, in contrast to most novels of this sort, we could be convinced. At first, I though she had autism but then something is revealed and I thought that's why she's that way.

. He has no difficulty finding people who bore grudges against the victim, but is unable to tie any of them to the crime. Leona, most especially, is an troubled enigma that Rognery gradually reveals, little-by-little, to the reader's horror. Well, to begin with, I hate books where the main character is unlikeable and not a 'good guy'. No more on that -- it would be a spoiler.

I was hoping for a female version of the tv show Luther which has much to recommend it, but it is not. I highly recommend this book but do want to warn that it is very graphic and may not set well with some people. She is a horrible person, an anti-hero, and really, she is not very appealing. . I received an advance e-galley from the publisher through Edelweiss.

Leona's flat affect jumped out at the reader from each page and suggested from the start that she was emotionally disconnected from her environment and from people in general. Leona has some problems -- she's hounded by a Stop -- this is a suspense thriller unike anything you have read before! She reminds herself to make small talk to others, to talk nicely to them, and to pretend to take interest in her colleagues. Efter fall och under de första århundradena av översvämmades deltat mellan och ett flertal gånger. I think I disliked her so much that I made it to the end of the book just to see if everything caught up to her. The biggest draw of this thriller was the main character, Leona, who was intended to be a strong and memorable female lead.

This is a police procedural, but also an incredibly different take on crime fiction. Just when I thought I had things figured out, something else would happen and off I'd go again. That I had forced someone else's child to commit crimes so that my own child could get well? It is fairly generic story but the writing and direction and great Swedish actors makes it above the usual crimethrillers. She's sort of an anti-hero ine and I can't wait to read more. I was encouraged by the fact that The Die Is Cast was a bestseller in the Sweden, the country of the author. She made me wish that I had taken psychology instead of philosophy in college just to figure out why she is so messed up.

Leona

Efter långa studier kom man 1933 fram till att floden som då kallades Fiumicino med stor sannolikhet var Rubicon. There were several twists and turns in this book. She is able to intimidate her boss, act insubordinately, and gets away with it. Her latest case is a weird one: banks are being robbed by a young girl who comes in naked and covered in blood. More book recommendations by me at Stop -- this is a suspense thriller unike anything you have read before! She was a very narcissistic, uncaring person. The multi-talented Jenny Rogneby worked as a pop singer in Sweden before going to university for criminology and working for some years with Stockholm City Police Department. Ingen inne på banken har ingripit och det blir Leonas uppgift att leda utredningen av Flickrånet som det kommer att kallas.
