Revue de presse

The pages turn themselves, right up to the final startling twist (John Verdon)

Carin Gerhardsen writes so vividly, like she is painting with words, gripping your heart and soul in an ever-tightening tourniquet (Peter James)

The books are fast-paced and addictive: finely tuned pieces that virtually demand to be read in one sitting (Barry Forshaw)

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the same Swedish editorial team and publisher as Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy comes a sensational new crime writing talent



Ingrid Olsson returns home from a Stockholm hospital to discover a man in her kitchen. She's never seen the intruder before. But he's no threat - he's dead.



Criminal Investigator Conny Sjöberg takes the call, abandoning his wife Åsa and their five children for the night. His team identify the body as that of a middle-aged family man. But why was he there? And who bludgeoned him to death?



Lacking suspect and motive, Sjöberg's team struggle until they link the case to another - apparently random - killing. And discover they face a serial killer on a terrible vendetta . . .




The Gingerbread House is the first title in The Hammarby Series, novels following Detective Inspector Conny Sjöberg and his murder investigation team - a gripping feast for all fans of Jo Nesbo, Camilla Lackberg and Henning Mankell.



'Carin Gerhardsen writes so vividly, like she is painting with words, gripping your heart and soul in an ever-tightening tourniquet' Peter James



'Gerhardsen brings a timely perspective to the serial killer genre, as her characters are engulfed by the worst possible consequences of their childhood cruelties. The pages turn themselves, right up the final startling twist' John Verdon



Carin Gerhardsen was born in 1962 in Katrineholm, Sweden. Originally a mathematician, she enjoyed a successful career as an IT consultant before turning her hand to writing crime fiction. Carin now lives in Stockholm with her husband and their two children. She is currently working on the seventh title in the series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great crime thriller - Scandinavian Style 10 juillet 2012
Par maximum verbosity - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
If you like thrillers, mystery and being completely surprised at the end of the story, I think you will love The Gingerbread House by Carin Gerhardsen. Gerhardsen skillfully crafted a thriller with a bizarre lot,a dark & dreary setting, with interesting and likable characters and managed to carry over the suspense when her book Pepparkakshuset (in Swedish) was skillfully translated by Paul Norlen into English.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I really enjoyed it. Gerhardsen has a writing style similar to some of my other favorite Scandinavian writers, Karin Fossum, Jo Nesbø and Åsa Larsson I read The Gingerbread House while on vacation at the beach, a setting that couldn't be further from the cold, dark Stockholm in winter, where this story takes place, but it was easy for me to immediately become absorbed in the story.

The Gingerbread House is the first in a series called The Hammarby Series, based around Detective Inspector Conny Sjöberg and his team solving cruel and brutal murders in the southern parts of Stockholm. This evocative story explores schoolyard bullying among young children and the effect it has on them when people look the other way. Many of the scenes in this book are based on Gerhardsen's own childhood, it is obvious with the depth & range of emotions and attention to detail. She paints a picture in an urban setting with strong portraits of authentic characters crafted in-depth and detail, ensuring the books will linger in the reader's mind long after they finish reading it. I found this true! My Swedish isn't good enough to read the rest of the books in this series, so I will be waiting (im)patiently for the English translations.

The story starts out with a fairy-tale like description of a preschool just south of Stockholm. A stately building surrounded by tall pines, round corners and white posts making it sound like a wonderful place for young children to spend their days. Gerhardsen goes on to describe a lively group of children bursting out of the doors, all bundled up in colorful winter gear, full of energy after a day of preschool and now on their way home. Most of the children go running off to their homes. A few, however, linger behind, one of them being 6-year-old Thomas Karlsson, who quickly becomes the target for a brutal beating, even by preschooler-aged children standards and so begins the story.

40-ish years later, a chance encounter on a train brings Thomas Karlsson face-to-face with the lead bully all those years ago, "King Hans" as the children used to call him. While Thomas lives in a dim, cramped room, all alone with no family, no friends, he can see that Hans appears to be healthy, strong and happy. On a whim and without really even knowing why, Thomas decides to secretly follow Hans home. The next day, Hans is found murdered, head bashed in and his life over in a matter of minutes. Then follows a string of what seems to be unrelated murders of people in their forties.

The book switches between a number of characters: the murderer, the chief inspector, a detective, and at times, we are given an insight into the victims but it wasn't at all confusing. I really understood the different perspectives of each character. Each character has their own storyline going, but each story blends in to the main storyline quite well. The book was exciting, just when I thought I had it figured out - I'd turn the page and couldn't be more wrong!

I've been a huge fan of "Nordic Noir" as it's been called since long before the whole "Stieg Larsson" craze (which I loved, by the way). There's just something about the Swedish culture that lends itself to taking what could be your run-of-the-mill mystery/thriller and turning it into something dark, mysterious and thrilling. If you're like me, a fan of mystery, thrillers and intrigue but like that little "extra something Scandinavian" thrown in, I think you will really enjoy this book. Put it on your "must read" list, you won't regret it!

This book was surprising in many ways: raw, brutal, even uncomfortable to read at times, but I loved it! It tells the story of a grown-up still haunted by the effects of being bullied as a child. The story turns quite scary, but still absolutely believable. It certainly makes the reader think about the impact we have on others, and how long-lasting the effects of a cruelty can be. I shouldn't say too much about the plot because I don't want to spoil it, but I do believe Carin Gerhardsen is the next big thing from Scandinavia. Like Steig Larsson's Millenium Trilogy, this story is set in Stockholm, and the writing is more intellectual than so many of the thrillers available. I highly recommend it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stronger than Stieg Larsson 13 juillet 2012
Par Claes - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am a big Stieg Larsson fan, and have looked for the next great from Sweden for several years, before I finally found it! Carin Gerhardsen is creepy in a fantastic way - The Gingerbread House is a real pageturner with a brilliant twist at the end! I read somewhere that Gerhardsen is a trained mathematician, and that probably helped when constructing the plot.

The Stockholm setting is colorful and so is the translation. I hope the next novel is released in English soon!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A tense journey into the mind of a killer! 14 juin 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Wow. What an exhilarating read! From the rich back story to the final twist, the story moved with fluid grace and an unbelievable sense of tension. The characters were so well developed, you not only cared what happened to them, but you felt as if you really knew them. I guarantee you'll be hooked from the start. Where the book really excelled, though, was in the chapters devoted to the killer's point of view. These were so eerie, so unsettling, and so realistic, you'd swear the author was reprinting the diary of an actual murderer. The bottom line is that, if you enjoy noir crime thrillers, or TV shows like CSI, this book is a must-read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hooked on Gingerbread! 8 juin 2012
Par Lou Redmond - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
At the start, I doubted whether or not I would enjoy this book, but as I continued reading I became completely hooked. This novel has many brilliant and unexpected twists - I am talking about it with everyone I meet as it has had a lingering effect and made a lasting impression. The story itself is unusual and compelling, and the smart, skillful way in which it is written means the reader is utterly captivated. Alternating between 1968 and 2006, this is a story about revenge. It begins with an extremely painful bullying scene that was based on the author's own experience as a child. There are several bestial murders, however the author has so cleverly crafted the plot that every event is perfectly placed and necessary. It's an exceptional book. I hesitate to write more about the story and risk revealing too much, but I would warn off sensitive readers. This author spares no gory details.
