I would love to read this book as I have read all her previous books. But at close to 600 pages, I felt the story was padded too much. I returned the book to the library. I hope her next book will be 300-400 pages.
This book continues with Lackberg's main policing characters used in her other novels - Patrick, Erica, Gosta, Martin, Mellberg, etc. It seems that a missing child found dead in the lake in the woods was also the same place where another child had been found dead 20 years earlier. The police force expects that it is the same murderer. Lackberg has a way of writing with such detail - for example she will say the character opened the window but then adds the minor detail about the fly on the window being able to escape. I found it quite easy to skip over paragraphs - just read the main sentences to get the drift and the ones that carry the main plot line. She does have secondary storylines weaving in present day immigration problems with Syrian refugees (she's sympathetic), a centuries old family curse (at the end the connection becomes clear why this story is given almost alternating chapters), teenage misfits, and updates on the family life of her continuing characters. The plot is intriguing, just drawn out too much.
