Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is a collection of stories previously released individually in digital editions, available together for the first time. The title story is very much in the style of Agatha Christie as a Christmas family gathering on an island leads to murder. Fun and well plotted they should entertain whether you’re a fan of Lackberg, crime, short stories or all three.

If you like Camilla Lackberg you might also like to read books by Henning Mankell, Jo Nesbo and Anne Holt.

Synopsis

The Scent of Almonds and other stories by Camilla Lackberg

THE SCENT OF ALMONDS AND OTHER STORIES is a collection of short stories from the No.1 international bestseller Camilla Lackberg. Perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. THE SCENT OF ALMONDS - It's less than a week until Christmas and policeman Martin Mohlin is begrudgingly accompanying his girlfriend to a family reunion on the tiny island of Valon outside of Fjallbacka. The connection to the mainland is cut off by a snowstorm and when the domineering patriarch Ruben collapses during Christmas dinner, Martin is forced to intervene. He soon establishes that Ruben was murdered and since they are completely isolated on the island, one of the family members must be murderer...A charming novella in the style of Agatha Christie, closely linked to the Fjallbacka-series.
