The Secret Life of Mr Roos
The Secret Life of Mr Roos | Hakan Nesser
1 post | 1 read
A secluded hut in the middle of the woods. A double life that could be his downfall. The Secret Life of Mr Roos is the third Inspector Barbarotti novel from the Godfather of Swedish crime (Metro), Hkan Nesser. At fifty-nine years old, Valdemar Roos is tired of life. Working a job he hates, with a wife he barely talks to and two step-daughters he doesnt get on with, he doesnt have a lot to look forward to. Then, one day, a winning lottery ticket gives him an opportunity to start afresh. Without telling a soul, he quits his job and buys a hut in the remote Swedish countryside. Every day he travels down to this man-made oasis, returning each evening to his unsuspecting wife. Life couldnt be better, until a young woman arrives in paradise . . . Anna Gambowska is a twenty-one-year-old recovering drug addict. On the run from the rehab centre she hated and an abusive relationship she cant go back to, all Annas prayers are answered when she comes across a seemingly vacant hut in the Swedish woodland. But its not long before Annas ex discovers her location, and an incident occurs that will mar the lives of both Anna and Valdemar forever. Inspector Barbarotti doesnt take much interest when a woman reports her husband as missing. That is, until a dead body is found near the missing mans newly bought hut, and Mr Roos becomes the number one murder suspect . . . The Secret Life of Mr Roos is the third novel in Hkan Nessers Inspector Barbarotti quintet.
