Críticas

Unexpected, dark and hilarious, not to mention a wee treatise on how others view and dismiss the elderly- it turns out, at their peril.

Irene Huss and her colleagues in Göteborg’s murder investigation unit must unravel the complex circumstances surrounding related murders. The murder victims are all connected by business and/or family ties to an internet company that crashed when the dot com bubble burst, enriching its founders at the expense of its investors. One survivor knows more than she is telling, and Irene and her partner search for a way to persuade her to talk. Meanwhile, Irene is distressed by some personal news shared by her partner and best friend, Tommy.

In some ways, this is the best book in the series so far. Irene’s domestic life didn’t distract from the murder investigation. Her husband, twin daughters, and dog made limited appearances in this book. The audio reader does a nice job with the narration and dialogue. I wish my library had more of this series available in audio format. There were some enjoyable scenes in a hospital near the end of the book. My other favorite in the series had a hospital setting, so perhaps the medical scene is a familiar one for the author. The ending is spoiled when the tension peaks to early and the investigation concludes with a long briefing (i.e. information dump) from an FBI officer.

Not much of a point but a fun short collection of darkly humorous stories and an elderly lady who proves to be much more clever (and deadly) than most people would ever suspect.

what a hoot!!! omg i had no idea what i was getting myself into when i saw that this book was available on libby.. but i'm so glad i read it. Maud!! what a little fox. Maud is not like your grandma, unless your grandma is a serial killer. who needs family or friends when you can spend your time traveling/going on vacation and killing people lol Maud's joy in life is getting rid of those in her life who annoy her.. an antique dealer, those who want her spacious apartment, those who want to marry a past love, annoying neighbors. what a woman. she goes about murder as one would go about business and i found myself cheering Maud on hoping she doesn't get caught… (mais)
