LoveReading Expert Review of The Man Who Watched Women

Scandinavian crime fiction is well know for being dark, gritty and full of complex characters, The Man Who Watched Women sits confidently alongside its associates. The author pairing of Michael Hjorth and Hans Rosenfeldt is well established, together they created the Swedish TV series of Wallander based on the books by Henning Mankell, and Rosenfeldt was the creator of the Swedish TV series The Bridge. The first book in this series is titled Sebastian Bergman, although best to start there, it is possible to read The Man Who Watched Women out of sequence. Egocentric criminal profiler Sebastian Bergman really isn't likeable, he doesn't have to be, he does however need to get his act firmly together in order to be of any use in this particular investigation. The rest of the team have their own issues to contend with and the twisted mastermind behind these murders will fully exploit any weakness. This is a slow burner of a read, it takes a little while to get used to the writing style, however it gradually catches fire and each page turned fans the flames. Intense, sinister and bleak, this is a captivating and dramatic read. ~ Liz Robinson
