Fashionably late (as is usually the case) to this party… this behemoth has been on my shelves for 6 years!

The Crow Girl was actually published as 3 separate books in Sweden, which helps explain the crazy ups and downs throughout. It‘s very dark (if you have any triggers, avoid it), disturbing, and brutal, though the worst is mercifully left to our imaginations. Twisty with two excellent female MCs (written by 2 men!). Good stuff!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lizpixie This one has been sitting on my #shelfofshame for about the same amount of years. I got about halfway before it overwhelmed me & I dnf‘d it for later. Apparently much later! 8mo

#TheCrowGirl #EricAxlSund #BookSpinBingo

The abused body of a young boy is discovered in a Stockholm city park. DS Jeanette Kihlberg heads the investigation. With the discovery of the mutilated corpses of two more children, it becomes clear that a serial killer is at large. Kihlberg turns to therapist Sofia Zetterlund for her expertise in the psychopathology of those who kill, and the lives of the two women become quickly intertwined.

EadieB This is a dark and gritty Nordic Noir about brutal child abuse, a subject which is very difficult to deal with. The characters are well-drawn and the plot has great twists which make the book hard to put down and keeps you guessing. The book is a bit too long but still an enjoyable read. I'll be looking forward to their next book as the writing is excellent. 2y
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 2y

I felt this was ok. It's basic nordic noir. I think the writer could have driven his point of child abuse through to the reader a bit more elegantly. You really don't need to have detailed descriptions of child abuse on every page of every chapter of the book. Readers are smarter than that and they do get the point without all the gore. 🤦‍♀️

I think with nordic noir there is a fine line between enough and too much violence...

As much as I ♡ a murder mystery that is written out side my country this one was too brutal for me to stomach. Especially because of the crimes against children. I just felt to uncomfortable with this material.

If dark, twisty thrillers are your thing, you'll love this book. This book follows three main female characters as they try to solve a gruesome crime. Just when I thought I had things in this book figured out, the author switched things up and left me intrigued and wondering what he'd do next. It's a 700+ page book, but it felt like less. Trigger warnings: child abuse, animal abuse, suicide

FlowerFairy Thank you for the TW! There are some things I prefer to avoid. 🙃 3y

I‘ve finally picked this book up but I‘m actually surprised at how many pages there is in it and the size of the text too! It‘s so small and so many pages, over 700, I never expected that at all.
But it seems quite interesting so far, of course I‘m only 35 pages in, but it has held my attention so far and that‘s a good sign for the rest of the book.

Audiobook over last 2 weeks. Writer takes time to develop two fabulous female leads. It takes a twist twice, especially in the 3rd act. Found myself enjoying dog walks even more than usual. Whilst crime thrillers are not my thing usually this one might change my mind if I can get such depth. Must be a Scandanavian thing as their female characters are just better. 31 hrs on audiobook so not a quickie but so worth it

Well, this was brutal. And extreme. But - many hours of entertainment, so I‘m not complaining. They could have found a better audiobook narrator though. In a book with Swedish place names and proper nouns in every second sentence it would be great if the narrator didn‘t consistently mispronounce every single one. It took me so long to realize Jeanette‘s husband was a Åke when Glaisters kept saying Orca.

tricours She also got all the Russian words wrong. Brutally wrong. And there were like three. How difficult is it to look up a pronunciation?! 5y
Peterfox123 I thought the narrator did an incredible job matching and remembering the numerous character voices. Without her ability, I doubt I‘d have stuck it out on what was ultimately a great book. Probably the difference for me is that I genuinely wasn‘t aware of the incorrect pronunciations being ignorant of the correct ones! Hence, it didn‘t grate. 5y
tricours @Peterfox123 there were no correct ones, so she obviously didn‘t bother with any research! I couldn‘t keep all the different characters apart though... 5y
Peterfox123 @tricours I can understand how that might be very irritating - especially in such a long audiobook- but, as I say, ignorance is bliss so I‘d never given it a thought till now. You‘ve made me wonder how much time, preparation and research the performers do. I do think it must have been an exceptionally difficult book to narrate though. 5y

New audiobook. I have discovered I like the crime genre after all. Only if there is a string female lead though. Tried a few and if male dominated they appear tediously misogynistic. Is this common for crime genre outside of Sweden as their writers seem to love their female characters to be real.

At 768 pages this one took me a while but my goodness I was glad I did. Great storyline and thorough character development-one minor part towards the end that seemed to come from left field so didn't really have a purpose. The rest was fantastic and turned into more than what you'd think from the synopsis. Great plot twists and always keeps you guessing.

Wow... this is probably the longest book I‘ve ever read. It‘s not the darkest but it isn‘t for everyone. It has some dark subject matter. I thought it was good though! I had a hard time picking it up occasionally but I think that‘s more due to a reading slump than the book. 🌟🌟🌟💫✨3.75-4/5

I like a #chunkster, but at times I lost track of this complicated story with huge amounts of psychology. It is very unpleasant in places, which is to be expected with paedophilia and abuse as subjects. There were so many storylines, characters & red herrings that my head is spinning & I‘m not sure in a good way. I *think* this was extremely good, rather than just brutally nasty (as I thought at times), but I‘m still gathering my thoughts.

Read this in bits between work stuff and I thought I knew how it would work out. Then read the rest in one go (increasingly compulsive). Very twisty in the end, I was only partially right! Hard to read descriptions of psychological and physical effects of abuse. Don‘t believe in trigger warnings, decide for yourself. A bit of light in the end. Strong women rule!

Mehso-so

Writing a review for this is so difficult. I want it to be a pick so badly. Well plotted and well written, with only one major flaw. It's way too long(and, as such, convoluted). I think publishing it as one book (in Sweden it is three books) was necessary, as it reads like one book. I wish that I had decided ahead of time to split it into three parts though. I would be interested in seeing where the authors go next. The ending was 👍🏻. #ripxii

I've got 200 pages left and I'm further convinced that 90% of books over 500 pages are unnecessarily too long. This is no exception. It's difficult to weave a tight and engrossing thriller in 800 pages and I think this book could have been better were it cut in half. It's my understanding that it is three books in one and that it's only the US edition that is published as one book. #slowburn #septembowie

EvieBee I agree! The sheer size of this book has intimidated me, although Elizabeth George‘s Lynley series keeps getting chunkier and chunkier! 5y
Reviewsbylola For its size, it goes quickly. But I keep going back and forth about whether I'm invested or not. @EvieBee 5y
Cortg I love big books and would prefer one big book rather than, say, a trilogy. I totally get why Series are broken up though.
I agree, some books could be a couple hundred pages shorter and still be a good book, probably better. 😉
