LoveReading View on The Crow Girl

If you thought The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the epitome of Nordic noir's savage darkness, think again. Graphic, violent and weaving a thread of evil with the dexterity of a malevolent spider, this Swedish trilogy by a collaborative duo of writers, ups the ante yet another notch with pedophilia, mutilation, human trafficking and a veritable catalogue of deviance unveiled following the discovery of a mummified child's corpse by the police and the ensuing investigation by troubled detective Jeanette Kihlberg, the scion of a family of cops through the generations. Once you set the manifold horrors aside (if you can), the investigation proves entrancing, with a complex plot swerving in all directions that make this a psychological thriller of the highest order, with positive female characters to the fore. Might not be to the liking of lovers of cozy crime, but otherwise will have you truly gripped.

The Crow Girl Synopsis

This is the international thriller sensation. It starts with just one body - the hands bound, the skin covered in marks. Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg is determined to find out who is responsible, despite opposition from her superiors. When two more bodies are discovered, it becomes clear that she is hunting a serial killer. With her career on the line, Kihlberg turns to psychotherapist Sofia Zetterlund. Together, they expose a chain of shocking events that began decades ago - but will it lead them to the murderer before someone else dies? A compulsive page-turner. (Sunday Express). Compelling...we are left gasping for breath. (Daily Mail). There's a fantastic twist...the pace of its revelations is relentless. (Observer).
