    3.5 Another series I have read from the beginning, so it feels like catching up with old friends. Patrik and Eric a are somewhat back on firm ground, Patrik after a health crisis and Erika after a terrible accident. Others close to the have not fared as well. Mats, the town finance officer is found shot to death and this death will cast a wide shadow over the rest of the story.Mothers and their children is the unifying theme of this multi thread novel. A ghost island and the inhabitants, some of which are no longer living, provide a mystical tone to this otherwise meandering crime novel. Drugs, abused wives, a money scam and a young woman with nowhere left to run. Definitely worth reading for fans of this series, but I feel that the author tried to include too much, tackle to much in this one. Bits and pieces broke up the storyline and made it difficult to stay engaged. Still, I love the characters in this series and will read the next just to catch up on their lives.ARC from netgalley.

    Fragments, fragments, fragments. Read, read. Fragments... Ah, finally a story emerges! Slowly but surely the disparate pieces are brought together. The puzzle may yet be solved. And then, more fragments. I'm not sure about that boy of the title, but I am getting lost in a maze of storytelling. Who is this? Who is that? Where are we now? Oh, yes, I see. No, wait a minute! Where was I? Different threads, different people, different time periods. Babies, ghosts (!), drugs, abused women, murder - what is going on here? Messy. Ghastly.

    Oh for goodness sake! I'm always on the lookout for Scandinavian-Nordic thrillers. I picked up a Book Page (or Pages, whatever) brochure from the library and they chose this as a good read. So I thought I'd try it now that Steig Larsson is gone. Way too simple. No, I am not in the sixth grade, thank you very much. Can I have a little plot, some character development? Please.Do not recommend. Too many other goods books out there.2 out of 5 stars.

    Continuação da saga de Patrik HedstromCamilla Lackberg volta a Fjällbacka uma sétima vez e com ela chega mais um acontecimento trágico na pequena localidade. Como qualquer série, segue os passos das obras que a precederam e, na sequência, quase tudo o que anteriormente era válido, continua a sê-lo. A autora não se distancia muito da sua fórmula de sucesso: passado, presente e vida quotidiana, e mantém o formato tipo das narrativas originais que desaguaram em "Os Diários Secretos" - esse sim, marcadamente diferente.O seu ponto forte continua a ser a mestria como dirige as personagens no "tabuleiro" da vida quotidiana. Claramente dando-lhes uma humanidade que as torna substancialmente mais próximas do leitor.Cumpre com distinção, novamente, não descurando a interessante finalização do mistério que nos propõe desde a primeira página. Nota breve para o desenlace que resultou do cliffhanger presente no título anterior ("A Sombra da Sereia"): não que desejasse que algo ainda mais trágico acontecesse, mas parece-me que o impacto foi diluído na passagem para esta sequela.Comecei o ano literário como gostaria: na companhia de amigos habituais. Os amigos Patrik, Erica, Maja..... Dificilmente poderia ter pedido melhor."Uma enorme serenidade apoderou-se [dela](...). Confiava neles. Eles envolviam-nos de amor. Então instaram-na a virar-se e continuar em direcção ao horizonte sem fim. Às cegas, (...) obedeceu aqueles que haviam sido os seus únicos amigos (...). (...) dirigiu-se com esforço para onde sabia que as correntes eram mais fortes e o fundo do mar se inclinava abruptamente."PS - mantive a estrutura da resenha anterior, adaptando-a à realidade da nova obra; desta forma garanto a congruência entre os vários livros da série.Nota: 4.0/5.0

    This is a dark tale of murder, mixed up with cocaine use, wife beating and police searching for answers to two murders. The plot moves along very slowly, as Patrik Hedstrom and his crew of police detectives try to piece together how the two murders are connected. There are a couple of subplots, a million dollar renovation of a coastal resort with a manipulative woman in charge of finances and a historical tale of unexplained deaths linked to present day ghost stories. While the ending did resolve all the plots, it took a long time to get there. There is more than one suspect, so the suspense holds throughout most of the book. Some quotes: "Because it's said that those who die there never leave the island."Police bureaucratic speak: "That's not something that we can confirm or deny." I rate it 3 out of 5 stars.Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a free ebook in return for an honest review.

    Two murders and no direct link to connect them. Patrick Hedstrom and his crew are trying to link them. Drugs, abuse and murder. Slow moving story but a good read. I would like to thank the publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this ARC.

    Aπό το Nesbo στη Lackberg… κοινώς από τα σκληρά στα μαλακά… τόσο μαλακά που δεν καταλαβαίνεις τι παίρνεις… Δεν ήξερα, δεν ρώταγα; Δηλαδή ήξερα, αλλά την έφαγα τη φόλα…Εντάξει, δεν λέω… ωραία είναι η ζωή όταν μας έχει κάτσει ένας ήρωας και πουλάει… όμως άντε τους αναγνώστες ποιος τους χέζει, αλλά ρε Lackberg, δεν έχεις να μας πεις κάτι άλλο, εκτός από την Ερίκα που αλλάζει πάνες και τον Μπερτίλ που και αυτός αλλάζει πάνες και ταΐζει μωρά και από τα μωρά της Άννας που όλες οι συμφορές του κόσμου πέφτουν πάνω της;;;Δυστυχώς κανένα απολύτως ενδιαφέρον δεν βρήκα στο συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο πέρα από το ρομαντικό φάρο στο εξώφυλλο και τέσσερις μετρημένες σελίδες προς το τέλος του βιβλίου. Οι ήρωες είναι οι γνωστοί, Ερίκα – Πάτρικ, Άννα – Νταν, Μπερτίλ – Ρίτα κλπ κλπ κλπ κι ένα νέο πτώμα στην ήσυχη κατά τα άλλα Φιελμπάκα, του Μάτε (ή Ματς) λογιστή του δήμου. Και φυσικά ψάχνουμε γύρω – γύρω όλοι, το δολοφόνο.Πέρα από το γεγονός πως οι ήρωες της Λάκμπεργκ, παραμένουν στάσιμοι και απίστευτα βαρετοί για όσους έχουμε διαβάσει όλα τα προηγούμενα βιβλία, αυτό το βιβλίο είναι ένα ‘μπουρδουλούκι’ γεγονότων, προσώπων και καταστάσεων. Μικρές πολύ μικρές ενότητες, πολλά πολλά πρόσωπα κι άλλα πρόσωπα, που χάνει η μάνα το παιδί και το παιδί τη μάνα. Άσχετες παντελώς ιστορίες μεταξύ τους, προφανώς για να μπερδέψει τον αναγνώστη ως προς το δολοφόνο, πρόσωπα και ιστορίες που αναρωτιέσαι όταν κλείνεις το βιβλίο για ποιο λόγο τα έβαλε όλα αυτά (πέρα από το προφανές για να γεμίσω σελίδες ή γιατί δεν είχα τι να πω…)Το θέμα της κακοποίησης των γυναικών είναι κι εδώ παρόν (όχι πλέον μέσω της Άννας αλλά μέσω άλλων προσώπων) που αναρωτιέμαι αν η ιδανική σουηδική κοινωνία είναι χτισμένη πάνω σε πόνους γυναικών. Κακοποίηση, ναρκωτικά, συμμορίες μηχανόβιων, παιδικά τραύματα, μετατραυματικό στρες, οικονομικές απάτες, όλα μαζί μια ‘ρώσικη σαλάτα’… αυτά είχαμε αυτά βάλαμε…Οι μόνες κάπως ενδιαφέρουσες σελίδες ήταν οι σελίδες του παρελθόντος (Φιελμπάκα 1875). Όμως ακόμα και σ’αυτές τις σελίδες όλο το στυλ και το μυστικό που κρυβόταν ήταν τόσο μα τόσο προβλέψιμα, τι κάνει νιάου – νιάου στα κεραμίδια…Απ’όσο με βλέπω, θα αργήσω να ξαναδιαβάσω Λάκμπεργκ.Βαθμολογία: ούτε τη βάση δεν πιάνει… ένα 4/10 με επιείκια…Readathon 2017: Ένα βιβλίο μιας σειράς τεσσάρων ή περισσοτέρων βιβλίων [έλα, δεν θέλω χαζά πως δεν είναι σειρά βιβλίων…] [28/80]http://skorofido.blogspot.gr/2017/07/...

    Mais um livro de Camilla, ao estilo de... Camilla, obviamente! Com isto quero dizer que tudo o que os seus livros têm de bom, este também teve, apesar de haver histórias paralelas perfeitamente descartáveis neste enredo. Mas aquilo que me tem vindo a desagradar, mais uma vez manteve-se. O facto de Gosta, em todos os livros, perturbar sempre a investigação de uma forma não intencional começa a ser demasiado repetitivo. E este é apenas um exemplo... No entanto, continua a ser um livro de ávida leitura: uma vez iniciado, não conseguimos parar de ler!

    Η Camilla Lackberg είναι μια πολύ καλή συγγραφέας αστυνομικών μυθιστορημάτων. Βέβαια, πιστεύω ότι έχει γράψει καλύτερα μυθιστορήματα από αυτό. Εκείνο που δεν μου αρέσει στα μυθιστορήματα της είναι πως συνήθως καταλαβαίνω ποιος έχει διαπράξει το έγκλημα. Παρόλα αυτά μου αρέσουν πολύ οι ήρωες της και η εξέλιξη τους

    Το 7ο βιβλίο της σειράς, το οποίο μου άρεσε πάρα πολύ. Ο λόγος που δεν του έβαλα 5 αστεράκια είναι ότι απλά δεν με ενθουσίασε τόσο πολύ. Στα θετικά του βιβλίου είναι ότι μέχρι τις τελευταίες σελίδες δεν είχα καταλάβει το δολοφόνο, αν και κάτι είχα υποψιαστεί στην αρχή (στα άλλα βιβλία της αυτή η υποψία ήταν πολύ έντονη). Επίσης, στην τελική αποκάλυψη μου άρεσε πολύ η ειρωνεία της υπόθεσης, ότι δηλαδή ανακάτεψαν όλη τη χώρα και τελικά η απάντηση ήταν δίπλα τους. Στις προσωπικές ιστορίες που μας απασχολούν, ο Πάτρικ και η Ερίκα έχουν αποκτήσει δυο δίδυμα αγοράκια, τα οποία η Ερίκα φροντίζει με περισσή αγάπη, ενώ ο Πάτρικ, που επίσης αντιμετώπισε ένα πρόβλημα υγείας στο προηγούμενο βιβλίο είναι πλέον καλά. Το ατύχημα της Ερίκα με την Άννα από τη μία, και το πρόβλημα υγείας του Πάτρικ από την άλλη τους έφεραν πιο κοντά και τους κάνουν να συνειδητοποιούν πόσο τυχεροί είναι που έχουν ο ένας τον άλλο και τα παιδιά τους και απολαμβάνουν χωρίς γκρίνια τις στιγμές καθημερινής ευτυχίας (μήνυμα προς όλους μας). Για την Άννα, πάλι, τα πράγματα δεν είναι τόσο ευχάριστα και πραγματικά αυτή την κοπέλα είναι να τη λυπάται κανείς με όσα έχει τραβήξει....Θετικό επίσης θα χαρακτήριζα ότι οι παράλληλες ιστορίες είναι λίγες και δεν έχουμε να μάθουμε πολλά ονόματα. Το βιβλίο είναι αρκετά σκοτεινό και το έγκλημα που μας απασχολεί δεν έγινε για να κρατηθούν κλειστά στόματα για λόγους επαρχιακής περηφάνιας. Γνωρίζουμε ζωντανό το θύμα μας - πεθαίνει στη σελίδα 60, όμως από το οπισθόφυλλο του βιβλίου ξέρουμε ότι θα πεθάνει - και εγώ προσωπικά τον συμπάθησα ιδιαίτερα. Στο παρόν βιβλίο η Λάκμπεργκ ασχολείται ιδιαίτερα με την ενδοοικογενειακή βία και την κακοποίηση των γυναικών από τους συζύγους τους. Από την αρχή της σειράς είχε καταπιαστεί με αυτό το θέμα, μέσω της Άννας, όμως τώρα μας περιγράφει περισσότερες περιπτώσεις, με διάφορες καταλήξεις. Μάλιστα, πολλές σκηνές του βιβλίου διαδραματίζονται στο Freestand, μια οργάνωση που προσφέρει καταφύγιο σε κακοποιημένες γυναίκες. Είναι ένα θέμα που πραγματικά πρέπει να αναδειχθεί και να αντιμετωπιστεί, καθώς βλέπουμε ότι και στις πιο πολιτισμένες χώρες του Δυτικού Κόσμου αποτελεί πρόβλημα.Το βιβλίο θα το σύστηνα ανεπιφύλακτα σε όλους τους φαν του σύγχρονου αστυνομικού είδους, δηλαδή του μυστηρίου με κοινωνικές προεκτάσεις. Ένα αρνητικό της Λάκμπεργκ νομίζω ότι είναι η πολυλογία της και ότι ώρες-ώρες έχει λίγο περισσότερο από το επιτρεπτό κουτσομπολίστικο ύφος, κάτι που ίσως ξενερώσει κάποιους. Εμένα πάλι αυτό δεν με πειράζει, απεναντίας, αυτή η ροή του λόγου με βοηθάει να διαβάζω πιο γρήγορα.

    Μου άρεσε περισσότερο απ’ όλα όσα έχω διαβάσει μέχρι σήμερα. Από αστυνομικής πλευράς η ιστορία ήταν ενδιαφέρουσα και σίγουρα δεν πρόδιδε τον ένοχο από νωρίς όπως συνέβαινε με την πλειοψηφία των άλλων της βιβλίων.Ασχολείται με την σχέση μητέρας παιδιού μέσα από τις πολλαπλές σχέσεις που αναφέρει στο βιβλίο και εμβαθύνει στην ενδοοικογεναιακή βία και στην κακοποίηση των γυναικών που εν μέρει είναι παρούσα και στα προηγούμενα βιβλία της μέσω της Άννας. Μειονέκτημα ίσως ότι σε μερικά σημεία γίνεται αναλυτική υπέρ του δέοντος.

    Really,Camilla Lackberg? Ghosts?! Ugh. While I am usually just annoyed by the overly simplistic, unbelievable saccharin nature of the protagonists' personal life, in this case even the mystery let me down. This book was lazy and disappointing. While Lackberg often uses the parallel story device effectively, here it is so bad (read: obvious what is going on) that it is laughable. And normally I enjoy the slow unravelling of the (detailed) plot, but in this book my attention wasn't captured because the red herring was so lame that I never thought it a viable explanation for the crime. There was no "aha" as things came together; rather it was a "phew" because it was done.

    Quando estamos familiarizados com uma personagem, a sua família e o seu mundo, cada evolução, cada história e cada acontecimento novo nos dão a sensação de um conforto agradável.No seguimento dos livros anteriores, ao abrir um novo livro da Camilla Läckberg é como se o espaço temporal entre leituras não existisse. É uma boa segurança encontrar-me entre conhecidos, deixar-me envolver nas memórias passadas e deixar a história guiar-me sem grandes inovações, mas também sem surpresas desagradáveis. A série mantem a qualidade que sempre teve e é mais um bom livro de mistério.

    4 de 5 estrellas ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (me ha encantado)Los libros de Camilla me gustan muchísimo, Patrick y Erica son personajes a los que les tengo enorme cariño aunque también me pongo tierna con el desastroso Melberg.Esta historia me ha tenido intrigada hasta el final y para nada me esperaba quien estaba detrás del asesinato de la novela. Me quedan solo dos novelas de la saga y estoy deseando leer que la escritora se ha puesta a escribir el siguiente de la saga.

    Another series that's turning into a bit of a disappointment...Ms Lackberg chooses to turn her police protagonists into bumbling Keystone Kops in order to score a few plot developments: forgetting to check the victim's laptop, cell phone, AND a key piece of evidence literally pocketed by one of the investigators and forgotten about? Please. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did enjoy the historic sub-plot, maybe because it distracted from all of the misery facing both Hedstrom's and the murder victim's families. Definitely at least one too many red herrings, though the twist at the end was quite good.

    A disappointment compared to the captivating works by Ms. Läckberg earlier in the series.I felt that the writing was getting a bit lazy, certain things were not explained properly and the twist of the plot was not as surprising and exciting as in her earlier works.Why was the one and only friend of Mats Sverin never contacted by Hedström and his team? In fact, it was not even mentioned that it occurred to the characters' minds. Considering that they were trying to investigate the intensely private victim, you would think they would grab the chance at establishing contact with this friend, especially since he was known through another contact which featured during the investigation.Another point was, there was no explanation about the ending of the historical sub-story, especially in relation to the elderly lady.The storyline, and thus the conclusion of the ''family'', during this historical thread was also pretty obvious.I thought it was a pointless thread to bring in the two investors of the Project Badis. They did nothing whatsoever and didn't even serve to act as a twist in the plot - they were just pointless.All-in-all, a disappointing publication after waiting almost a year for this next installment....

    Aparentemente tenho andado a perder uma série fantástica...«A Ilha dos Espíritos» é o primeiro livro que leio de Camilla Läckberg mas já decidi que não será o único! Não foi fácil entrar na história e penso que grande parte dessa dificuldade se deveu a não conhecer as personagens que já fazem parte da série, nem os respectivos passados. No entanto, o que me pareceu inicialmente um conjunto desconexo de relatos sobre vários núcleos de personagens convergiu para um enredo cada vez mais interligado e complexo, super intrigante e cheio de mistérios. Embora nem tudo tenha sido uma surpresa, foi um livro que me prendeu até ao fim e fiquei não só curiosa com os próximos desenvolvimentos mas também com os anteriores!

    I didn't finish this books as quickly as her other ones. Many names , many repetitions and not any significant developement in the plot ( except for the 20-30 last pages). The language was better and more elaborate than the previous books. Just an easy to read enjoyable book.

    Konstrukcja lepsza niż w Syrence - wszystko bardziej konkretne, coś się dzieje od początku - ale pod koniec znowu się zaczęło rozłazić. Nie wiem, czy to dlatego, że przy książce nr 7 coraz trudniej napisać oryginalną a spójną zagadkę, unikając powtórzeń, czy Lackberg miała jakiś inny zamysł, który porzuciła a potem łatała to, co zostało, ale końcówka nie była zbyt satysfakcjonująca. Plus należy to wreszcie powiedzieć: Patrik tak naprawdę jest średnim detektywem.

    2018-09-29 19:25

    Mi primer contacto con la novela negra escandinava fue la serie del inspector Wallander, de Henning Mankell, y llegué despues de leerme casi todas las novelas de Pepe Carbalho (Vázquez Montalbán)... lo que significa que el baremo con el que mido la colección de Camila Läckberg está bastante alto. Dentro de la serie el libro no supone ningún cambio, los personajes continúan con sus vidas dentro de lo previsible, aún sufriendo situaciones extremas. La trama en si esta bien resuelta pero no trata de engañar al lector con giros imposibles, simplemente va dando datos al ritmo de la investigación permitiendo, si estás un poco despierto, saber parte de lo que va a pasar. En cierto modo creo que la serie está atravesando una etapa llana, de relleno, como cuando en una serie de televisión hay diez capítulos en los que la trama no avanza casi nada hasta que llega el final de la temporada y de repente se produce una avalancha que te lleva al "cliffhander" que te mantendrá esperando seis meses por la reanudación. Y no es algo malo, porque series como las protagonizadas por Brunetti o Montalvano permanecen en esa zona tranquila durante años sin problemas. El peligro está en tratar de que todo sea cada vez más difícil, aburriendo al lector con tantas fantasmadas (y en este saco metería la serie de Scarpetta (Patricia Cornwell).Si eres seguidor de la serie no te defraudará, porque sigue en su linea, aunque creo que me gustaron más las entregas anteriores. Si es tu primer libro de Camilla Läckberg mejor empieza por el primero y leelos en orden, porque la historia de los personajes es más importante que el crimen que se investiga.

    Hmmm, I raced through "The Lost Boy." It picked right up from where the previous book in the series ended so right away you find out how the cliffhanger ending is resolved. I still love the characters in this series, but the stories are just getting weaker (in my opinion.) This one mixed old ghosts with drug dealers and a battered women's shelter. And everyone was mostly sad in this novel. There was also the building of a new hotel and a bother/sister con artist team. Lots going on, I still can't figure what the tie-in is for hotel and the embezzlement scheme. It was like a whole random plot line thrown into the middle of the story for no reason. I have no idea what happened to Lackberg as she was writing this. Maybe her editor went on vacation? It's just a big messy mess.This series is all translated from the Swedish - so I think I'm caught up with the translations as "The Lost Boy" was published in 2009 and the translated version just came out in English last month. I think I'm happy to be released from Lackberg's grip for a while. I read the seven of these Patrik Hedstrom novels that have been translated in one long binge. You really do have to read these in order. I've thoroughly enjoyed the entire series (even this mess, just because I care about all these people who people Fjallbacka) and will look forward to the next one that's published in English. But for now, I'm happy to move on to reading something different.

    I loved this book. I found all the characters interesting even apart from their roles in the mystery/ies. (I don't want to name the victims because that would be a spoiler but the effects of their deaths are absorbingly recounted.) I loved the desolate haunted island with its beautiful lighthouse. I enjoyed the story that is counterpointed against the main story, set in present day Sweden (the other story takes place in the same location in the 1800s). I felt involved in the lives of the police team working the case and in their stories. But most of all I was touched by the children in this book and all the various losses that occur.I strongly recommend this mystery to anyone who enjoys a good mystery (or maybe even a ghost story). I couldn't put it down and although I guessed some of the ending, parts were a surprise. And I didn't even mind having guessed some of the conclusion-the book is just that good.I want to thank NetGalley, Pegasus Books, and the author, for making an advance copy of this wonderful book available to me in exchange for an honest review.

    3,5*This is 7th book from the series, and I got familiar with the characters and settings. I like this series, and I like it is about a geograpy and culture that I don't have experience.The book dances around violence to women and children. It is sad that even educated and developed countries have men acting as overpowered of women. I think some side stories are unnecessary and unfinished, hence 3,5*

    Time Taken To Read - 6 daysPublisher - HarperFictionBlurb from GoodreadsNo. 1 international bestseller and Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg's new psychological thriller - irresistible for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. On a late summer's night, a young woman jumps in her car, her hands slippery with blood on the steering wheel. Taking her five-year-old son, Nathalie flees to the only safe haven she knows: the island of Graskar off the coast of Fjallbacka...Meanwhile, Detective Patrik Hedstrom has barely stepped foot inside his office following a lengthy sick leave before he catches a murder investigation. A man has been murdered in his home: the victim, Mats Sverin, was the council's financial director, heading up a regeneration project worth millions. But when Patrik and his team start digging into the dead man's life, all they can uncover is unanswered questions. Why was Mats in such a rush to return to his home town of Fjallbacka after years in Gothenburg? And is it pure coincidence that Mats's childhood sweetheart Nathalie has also suddenly returned to the area? Mats visited Nathalie on Graskar before his death. The locals call the island 'The Ghost Isle' - they say that it's haunted, and that the dead have something to tell the living. But will anyone get close enough to uncover the dark secrets that lurk there?My ReviewThe book draws you in from the first page, in fact even the first sentence. "It was only when she placed her hands on the steering wheel that she saw they were bloody". Nathalie is fleeing with her son, her hands covered in blood, but what has happened and why is she running? Patrik is a police officer in the small town of Fjallbacka, where Nathalie is running to, married to a successful novelist Erica trying to cope with grief and a murder case. Mats Sverin was left behind years ago by Nathalie, now she is back and suddenly he is dead. Is it coincidence? What has Mats been hiding and did it lead to his death?I liked the story and found myself drawn in fairly quickly however there was far too many characters and different stories going on for me to keep up. Obviously you have the main one(s) but there are quite a few side lines ones and I kept finding myself having to go back to rediscover who was which story which is a bit frustrating.There is also, in between chapters where the story goes back to FJALLBACKA 1870, the story is always titled and the year also written in italics so you know it has gone back in time. I loved reading these small glimpses of the past and Emelie's story however by the end of it I honestly thought, really? Thats is as I would have loved so much more and in depth.This was my first time reading this author and to be honest, nothing is lost in translation and it's not often I will say that. It was a good story and you get tie ups to just about all the stories but I did find a few of the stories could have been dropped and or concentrated more on the main ones. However all in all a good introduction to this author and her work, I would consider more from this series, 3/5 for me. Thanks so much to the publisher, HarperFiction for sending me an ARC copy - available to buy from Hardback and ebook from all good retailers for £12.99 from 4th April 2013.

    След пет прочетени книги, „Пазачът на фара“, шестата от поредицата, може би ще ми е последната на Лекберг. При това ги чета с големи интервали, които запълвам с четива от всякакви жанрове. И въпреки това не мога да не забележа тенденциите, които се повтарят. То и колко ли различни криминални случаи може да има в малко градче като Фелбака? Няколко са ми проблемите точно с тази книга. На първо място поредното малтретиране на жени и деца. Това присъства в почти всяка от предишните, под една или друга форма. Бих искала да разбера от достоверен източник дали това е сериозен проблем в Скандинавските страни или скандинавските автори просто са яхнали вълната и свирят на точно тази тънка струна на обществото. Не съм била там, нямам информация, но все пак съм подочула това-онова. Например за възможността социалните служби да извеждат децата от застрашена среда при минимално подозрение за насилие. И изведнъж се оказва, че жени и деца са малтретирани по най-жесток начин, а никой не може да ги защити – нито държавата, нито полицията, нито неправителствените организации. Струва ми се твърде преекспонирано, но пък знае ли човек, може да е истина. Остава ми впечатление, че такива случаи са по-скоро правило, а не изключение.Но ако скандинавските писатели просто експлоатират темата – това не ми харесва. И не са само авторите на криминалета. Може би такъв род литература стига до българския книжен пазар, не знам. Просто тенденцията не ми харесва, затова не смятам да се занимавам повече. Друг проблем с „Пазачът на фара“ – много мудно действие. Повтаряне на едни и същи неща, дори с едни и същи изрази, което не допринася за действието. Все едно на Лекберг й плащат на брой думи. Спокойно можеха да се спестят едни 100-150 страници от обема, без сюжетът да пострада. Иначе полицаите са симпатични, криминалната нишка горе-долу бива, но това протакане къса нервите.

    Y no sé cómo, pero Camilla Läckberg lo vuelve a hacer. Con su séptimo libro entre mis manos me dispuse a lo que iba a ser una gran lectura, porque sabía que esta autora no iba a decepcionarme. De nuevo, me ha mantenido pegada a sus páginas y puedo decir que, quizá, más que ninguna otra porque realmente iba muy perdida en el caso que estudia este tomo. No es mi historia favorita de la saga, pero es verdad que con las historias secundarias la autora ha conseguido hacer que esté pegada al libro hasta que supiese realmente quién era el asesino. Lo que más me gusta es que, a diferencia de otros libros con los que el lector ya sabe de antemano quién va a ser el asesino, porque lo haya contado en el libro o porque es más que obvio, Camilla consigue que tengamos los mínimos datos para que nuestra mente trabaje al compás que lo hace Patrick, el coprotagonista de la saga. Y eso ¡me encanta! Aunque ya tengo el octavo tomo en mi poder, esperaré un tiempo, ya que el noveno tomo no saldrá cómo mínimo, hasta el próximo año. Así que, toca dosificar ^^.

    Τι να πω τώρα εγώ για τη λατρεμένη μου,τη θεά μου;;;Η γυναίκα είναι απίστευτη και το αποδεικνύει για μία ακόμα φορά!!!Οι ήρωες είναι οι ίδιοι,οι αγαπημένοι,αυτοί που χαίρεσαι που τους ξανασυναντάς γιατί σου φαίνεται πως ξαναβρίσκεσαι με αγαπημένους φίλους..Αν και οι ζωές όλων έχουν εξελιχθεί.Όπως εξελίσσεται αριστοτεχνικά και η φαντασία της Camilla, που όπως χαριτωμένα δηλώνει κι η ίδια στο ευχαριστήριο σημείωμά της,"δε σταματάει να σκορπάει πτώματα στη Φιελμπάκα!" Η ευρηματικότητά της είναι αστείρευτη και μας δίνει μια ακόμα ιστορία που δε μοιάζει με καμία από τις προηγούμενες..Αυτή τη φορά,με μια μικρή δόση υπερφυσικού,εκτός απ' όλα τ' άλλα...Και φτάνοντας στο τέλος,απορείς για μία ακόμα φορά για την τελική εξέλιξη και την ταυτότητα του δράστη,το πόσο έξυπνα σε παρέσυρε η συγγραφέας σε 100 διαφορετικά μονοπάτια μέχρι να αποκαλύψει το δράστη και πώς καταφέρνει να σε κρατάει σε συνεχή εγρήγορση για 570 σελίδες!!Για μια ακόμα φορά, της βγάζω το καπέλο..5 αστεράκια και λίγα είναι!!! :)
