Nden Und ein ungebetener Gast der vor aller Augen ermordet wird Johan Theorin erzählt in seinem neuen Kriminalroman. Although I do believe that his first book was the best I really enjoyed this oneThe uarry book 3 in Theorin s land uartet follows in the footsteps of his first two most excellent novels Echoes from the Dead and The Darkest Room Once again Theorin has delivered a winner set on the island of land in Sweden It is the Spring segment of the uartet beginning in the month of MarchAs the novel opens Gerlof Davidsson a recurring character in these books currently living in a retirement home on the island decides after watching the undertakers come to take away a fellow resident that he just wants to go home to Stenvik He has a small cottage he s 83 and figures it s better to be at home for his remaining years He whiles away the time making ships in a bottle for which he is uite well paid But there are a few new faces in the neighborhood on Gerlof s return in the small cottage of his old friend Ernst now lives Per M rner divorced father of two who does market research for a living Per s daughter Pernilla is uite ill so he makes the best of his time with the two children at the cottage until she absolutely must be hospitalized In one of the two new luxury homes on the eastern side of the nearby uarry live Max and Vendela Larsson Max authors self help books and is currently engaged in writing a cookbook Vendela grew up on the island and has decided that the time is right to return after having been away for a long timePer s only other relative is his father Jerry Morner a name he took on for himself earlier but Jerry lives alone elsewhere and has had a stroke so doesn t communicate well Per is estranged from his father for the most part although he had promised his mother that he would look out for him One day Per gets a call from his father and driving out to see him just happens to arrive as Jerry s house goes up in flames clearly a move motivated to cause Jerry s death Although Jerry s dad comes out relatively okay two people were left in the house to die The police realize right away that it s a case of both arson and murder and now Per decides to take Jerry home with him to the cottage in Stenvik He is reluctant to do so their estrangement was caused by Jerry s less than savory past career as a photographer And from here the storyline cuts into several directions Per begins to investigate his father s past so as to try to figure out who would want to hurt him Vendela s past life on the island becomes a story of its own Gerlof Davidsson now home decides maybe it s time to read his dead wife s old diaries Theorin alternates between the three plotlines alternating the present with the past putting together a haunting story where all the threads come together toward the end of the novel This constant interweaving of past with present is a signature trait of Theorin s writing and he does it well While you re reading in the present you want to go back to the past and vice versa And all along he envelops his reader in a dense atmosphere that becomes palpable the further in the story you go Of all of the Swedish writers I ve read Theorin is the best at placing his readers into the local scene so that you see each tree feel the weight of the stones in the uarry and hear feet crunching in the snow Seriously this author s fort is his great evocation of a sense of place but not far behind are his characterizations Each and every person in this novel has a distinct personality with his or her own internal issues problems emotions all of which come through clearly and realistically so that it is easy to engage with all of them rather than just a few here or there And Theorin s incorporation of local myth and legend is at the same time imaginative and rational and adds another dimension to the plotlines And let me add that the translator has done a great job I would imagine that it s not easy to convey the depth of atmosphere in a language change but somehow she s managed to do soThe uarry will hook the reader at page one and keep him or her reading until the book is finished The suspense builds slowly throughout the story until you re so caught up in the story that you cannot put the book down even though it weighs in at 400 pages I should know I stayed up an entire night until the book was over because I couldn t wait to see what the heck was going to happen next the action moves uickly from scene to scene so that the length of the book just doesn t matter You don t really need to have read the first two novels beforehand but why wouldn t you I d definitely recommend this novel to readers of Scandinavian crime fiction readers of atmospheric crime fiction in general and especially to anyone who might want to try Theorin as an author for the first time

Der Spiegel Bestseller erstmals als Taschenbuch Ein verwunschener Ort eine abgeschiedene Welt dunkler Mythen und Lege. A very good book I like Theorin s style and his combining old Scandinavian legends with the current world The combination of elves trolls and porn might seem too much but they create an interesting counterpoint The only line I didn t like very much was the sick daughter Looking forward to The Echoes from the Dead

    This did not keep me glued to the pages like the preceding Nattfåk but it was still a very good read More in the style of the first of the uartet Skumtimmen as the pace is a bit lower and the developments of the story take a bit of time The mystery in this one is also a bit abstract starting out seemingly unrelated or h

    I enjoyed The uarry I read Theorin’s novel The Darkest Room a few months ago and really enjoyed it so I wanted to check out of his work The uarry takes a while to get going and that’s the only real failing I found the first fifty or so pages a bit of a drag The pace eventually picks up and The uarry develops into a pretty dec

    I started this book with anticipation being a fan of Nordic Noir but was alienated almost from the beginning by the clichéd characterisation and the clunky dialogue The synopsis on the back cover leads you to expect a tightly written murder mystery but the story meanders all over the place with people displaying the strangest reactions to the events in their lives – a father Per sees his son nearly killed by an out of control

    The third of Johan Theorin's Oland uartet is even better than the first two in the series it seems he gets better with every book he writes He begins with a collection of characters and the events that govern their lives each developing a strong sub plot all seemingly unrelated As the story proceeds the character

    A bit strange thriller Liked the part about the elves but the story line was fuzzy and characters were all over the place Okey to kill time but not much

    This is an excellent book I give it a 4 although in many ways it deserves a five the only flaw I find I find it difficult to understand what time period this was set and I think it was the 1990s but is not clear In the spoke the author cleverly waves a story which is steeped in the Mire of porn but also is int
