Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“With a more literary approach to the genre  . . . Larsson remains one of the brightest stars in the current Nordic firmament . . . perceptive touches quicken the narrative throughout, and the characterization of the bloody-minded Rebecka (who Larsson really puts through the mill here) keeps The Second Deadly Sin firmly grounded.” —Barry Forshaw, The Independent

“A ‘must read’ series for me and the novel’s ending hints at new directions for Rebecka which should shake up future books a little.” —Louise Welsh, Crimepieces

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dawn breaks in a forest in northern Sweden. Villagers gather to dispatch a rampaging bear. When the beast is brought to ground they are horrified to find the remains of a human hand inside its stomach.

In nearby Kiruna a woman is found murdered in her bed, her body a patchwork of vicious wounds, the word WHORE scrawled across the wall. Her grandson Marcus, already an orphan, is nowhere to be seen.

Grasping for clues, Rebecka Martinsson begins to delve into the victim's tragic family history. But with doubts over her mental health still lingering, she is ousted from the case by an arrogant and ambitious young prosecutor.

Before long a chance lead draws Martinsson back into the thick of the action and her legendary courage is put to the test once more.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 un bonne lecture mais un livre decevant 2 mai 2014
Par Tanas
Format:Format Kindle
le livre reste plaisant a lire car les personnages principaux sont attachants et les elements historiques toujours fouilles, l'intrigue me semble en revanche un peu faible et certains rebondissements artificiels. j'espere qu'asa larsson ne s'essoufle pas car j'ai enormement apprecie les autres livres de cette serie !

I'm a big fan of Asa Larsson and feel she gets it mostly right with the character development and plotting set in the northern and remote region of Sweden. Her stories are atmospheric and her settings which take place where she was born - Kiruna, is very well written and is a significant part of the ongoing journey of the main protagonist, Rebecka Martinsson. Martinsson is a lawyer by trade and she has had some cases that have had serious impact on her mental psyche. The crimes in the stories which are five so far and its impact on the characters are dealt with in a realistic fashion.

In THE SECOND DEADLY SIN, I am unsure of what sin the author is going for in here as it seems to heavily hint at avarice which is the third deadly sin not the second. But no matter, the story has two story lines with one of them set in the past during WWI and goes into the origins of Kiruna, a mining town, that was instrumental in providing iron ore to other countries during the war. The present day investigation involves the suspicious deaths of several people throughout the most recent years and the present murder of a woman found stabbed to death in her bed. Her grandson, who probably witnessed the murder, is traumatized by the incident. The story tries to untangle the family tree to point to links to will lead to a viable motive.

What made this story less compelling was the WW1 storyline that involved a doomed school teacher. It was cliched and predictable. The present day murder case was a bit convoluted with Rebecka being pulled off the preliminary investigation for no good reason only for her to do some sleuthing on her own. The office politics thatI usually enjoy was more of a nuisance in this entry. The ending was a mixed bag with over the top action sequences. Those who decry the author of animal cruelty in her books (not me) will have a field day with this one. In my decision to rate this book three stars, I am basing it more on story development rather than character development which continues to move along strongly. I look forward to Asa Larsson's next book. My favorite of hers continues to be UNTIL THY WRATH BE PAST.

Asa Larsen's characters are so likeable. Except the villains of course. I became immersed in the loving description of a very harsh environment

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ‘How can a dog possibly scream like that?’ 5 février 2014
Par Jennifer Cameron-Smith - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
The story opens in northern Sweden with a hunt for a wounded bear: a bear that has killed Samuel Johansson’s dog. The bear is tracked, and then killed. Human remains are found in its stomach. In the nearby town of Kiruna, Sol-Britt Uusitalo has been brutally murdered, and her seven year old grandson Marcus is missing. What is the connection between these events?

Prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson is initially assigned to the murder investigation, until one of her colleagues (Carl von Post) contrives to have her removed. He takes over the investigation and Martinsson takes leave. But she doesn’t stop thinking about the case, or looking into it.

There’s a second older story woven through the novel. One hundred years earlier when Kiruna was a new town, Elina Pettersson, a young school teacher arrives determined to make a new life for herself. She falls in love, is betrayed and then brutally murdered. The story of who betrayed Elina and who murdered her and why makes sad reading.

The story moves between the contemporary investigations into Sol-Britt Uusitalo’s murder, the fate of her grandson Marcus, and the story of Elina Pettersson. The connections between the stories gradually become clearer as does the motive for murder. Rebecka Martinsson has to make a number of choices, and one of them tore at her heart (and mine).

This is my first Åsa Larsson novel, and I’ll be looking to read the others. Rebecka Martinsson is an intriguing character, as are some of the others who people the novel. Dogs are also important in this story, with one in particular being a hero. It’s black and bleak, but there’s hope as well – for some. I found this novel challenging and while I recommend it, it’s not for the squeamish.

‘The moon is like a cold white goddess in the black sky.’

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty interesting read. 17 juin 2014
Par Autumn Nauling - Publié sur
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
This is A Scandinavian Crime Thriller.

I enjoy a good mystery book and this was decent for me. I did keep wondering okay who did this. Why did they do this. That is the mystery of it all. The book starts off really strong, you have a bear attack and once the bear is hunted down there is something mysterious in its belly. After that the story takes you onto a murder that has happened in the nearest town. Prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson has her work made out for her. She has a murder to solve and somehow the past all comes together. The answer to the present is in the past.
Now at times I got confused because the author would use the last names of the officers and prosecutor. I don't like being confused in a story hence the 4 star rating.

Rebecka has to deal with a young and upcoming prosecutor who wants to push her off the case. But Rebecka takes it all into her own hands but what price does she pay?
With this murder happening, Rebecka takes a look back at the family's past and notices more "accidents" have happened.
Along with this book taking place in the present we are also taken back into the 1900's where all this pretty much started. I liked the going back and forth between the past and present but at times I felt it was abrupt. As I would get into reading what the dogs found and Marcus the little boy who acts like a wild dog and then bam! In your face you in the past with the school teacher Elina Pettersson. Which when you read her past you get a bit sad. I know there was one part with Elina that I read and I felt so bad for what happened to her.

If you like mysteries then I would give this book a read. I think I will be reading more from this author in the future.
