I found this book to be just ok and rather derivitive of Stieg Larsson's Millenium series. Even though the identity of the killer was a surprise, it didn't ring true and felt rather contrived. However, my biggest problem was that this was, by far, the most poorly edited book I have ever read, by far. The author may not have a firm grasp of the English language, but shouldn't the editor? Between multiple misspellings and grammatical and punctuation errors, it became difficult to read and lessened ...more

One, two... here's my review; a simple, amaturish plot and an overwhelming amount of grammatical errors made this story flop for me. At least it was free and over with quickly.

Ok this one I am sure about to be honest. I understand that its fiction and I have read a lot of fiction in my time. Not only that but some fiction is clearly so extreme that it cannot possibly be anything BUT fiction.
That said now for my next point - when one piece of work acknowledges another - I feel a little sense of anticipation - if they acknowledge each other and build on the lore the first one set down - I think that the great and wonderful imaginative world out there is just one little

I read this and began wondering what I got myself into. When a book begins like this, either you close it really, really quick or you slowly turn the page and look through the fingers of the hand you are holding in front of your eyes. You can be sure I’m sitting on the front porch swing, IN BROAD DAYLIGHT, reading it. This book scares you right off the bat; at least it did me. But, then, I lead a sheltered life.

I just bought this from Amazon.com. It was my first e-book and it was awesome! This is my review:

One, two ... He is coming for you is a breath taking thriller. You will never guess who the killer is! This is Scandinavian Mystery when it is best!
Rebekka Franck is a very well-known reporter in Denmark that moves back to her hometown of Karrebaeksminde. Soon after she starts her new job on a local paper the body of one of the wealthiest men in the country is found in his summer residence in the c

Sort of an amateur Steig Larsson type book mixed with a little Freddie Krueger :-) . This Scandinavian thriller, mystery, and horror, story is about a woman journalist ( Rebekka Franck Series One) who returns to her small Danish hometown to escape her abusive husband and finds herself in the middle of reporting on and helping solve a mystery involving a slasher style serial killer. Needed better editing but actually was pretty suspenseful , with a surprise ending. My Halloween read. 2 1/2 stars

Along the lines of Agatha Christie's TEN LITTLE INDIANS, this is Boje's first book written in English. There are a lot of grammatical errors, and the story and structure are not very good either. Sorry to be so sour. Only cost a dollar on the Kindle....
Tobias Cooper
Got this as a freebie from Amazon. It's an acceptable crime thriller. Reads rather like a Sunday evening BBC/ITV crime drama. Plenty of gruesome killings before the advert breaks. Nice side story regarding the central character's ex-husband.

Finished book (at something like 85% :-( due to amount of advertising at the end) to paraphrase Eddie the Shipboard Computer "it's OK, but it smells a bit" there is nothing particularly wrong with the book per ce but nothing especially exciting about it.

A really good read considering it's the author's first book. Would have liked more details on Denmark, sounded like a very interesting setting (demographic only 5.5 mil).
Having read a lot of thriller/crime/mystery, James Patterson, Larsson...etc. felt the story was a little amateurish. But considering everything, a really good read, the perpetrator wasn't one the one I suspected.

Correction: It isn't the author's first book, it's the first of a series. It has a good plot, well developed character

I didn't like this one as much as the Emma Frost series, but since it's the first I might get more into them. I thought the book was creepy enough. I didn't like that Rebekka didn't call the cops on her stupid husband, I won't say while because of spoilers. He just needed to go to jail and get treated for his PTSD. I loved Sune and his son Tobias. I do look forward to reading more stuff they all get into together.

This book was okay, a fun read if you want a light, fast murder-mystery in a different setting. I was interested in the book particularly because the author is Scandinavian, and her setting is in Denmark. I enjoy reading books by authors who really are familiar with the cultures and locations they write about. The author does a great job with the settings of this story. I get to see pieces of Denmark through her eyes. I can't say the murder-mystery part was spectacular, but it was fun and fast, ...more

Wonderful thriller

Unputdownable! So gritty and raw. This is a really great thriller and a good start to an incredible series that will keep you turning the pages. Rebekka is a complex, tough and interesting character. Love her already. Looking forward to read more.

Well, a Kindle Sale bought this and the sequel...

I do like whodunits, and this, like most, kept me from figuring out who dided it...

I don't know if there was a translation here, or just poor editing, but concur that sometimes the 'English' got in the way.

As did several side story lines

As did some rather silly proclamations by our heroine.

As did some rather stretched credibility - well, at least I was asked to buy into it...

Very short, think a bit over 200 pages, very easy read, not a ton to keep

This is the 1st book I read by Willow Rose. The killings were gruesome but I tried to read this story for days but it was too slow moving which made it boring to me.

People who write in their second language should ALWAYS pay for a professional, native speaker editor and beta readers. If the author of this series had done so it might actually have been enjoyable to read them. I downloaded the three first books in the series for free and am very glad I didn't pay for them. The grammatical errors were horrid and instead of flowing nicely the language was choppy and, in parts, unbearable to read. It's a shame, really, because had the manuscript been properly ed ...more

Wow, what an absolute gruesome and horrific portrayal of psychopathic behavior all in the name of revenge!! I think I prefer to pass on a diagnosis in this particular situation which is something I never do and may not be appropriate now but this isn't in a professional arena where a patient's psychological life is dependent upon my label so I'm giving myself permission to just be a reader and a reviewer!! This is the most well thought out avenger plot I think I have e

Giving this "international best selling author" 3 stars on this one, and that is only because the story line wasn't too bad and it moved fairly well. What I don't understand is the editing--or was there any at all? How could all these typos, misused English, awkward and incorrect grammar situations have made it through? Sorry, Ms. Rose, did you do this yourself? I see there have been quite a number of books published under this name so MUST conclude there had been a real publisher and editor bef ...more

This got off to a little but of a slow start for me. I found it hard to get into. The pace did pick up but I'd worked out who the killer was. It was an ok read & I will give the next one in the series ago

I'm not a huge fan of horror but this one is written just right. I never actually suspected the person responsible. I had all the right questions that an author well try to leave you with and they were all answered in the end. Very well written

The bones of this story had potential, but I just couldn't get past the errors in grammar, spelling, and syntax. I guess I'd like to see how it would read if written in her native language and translated by a professional.

I started this book and could not put it down. I am now onto the second in the series. My only disappointment was that I figured out who the killer was in the first meeting with the main heroine. I'm not sure why but the author leading the reader away from the truth just made it more clear to me. I did enjoy this book though which I normally cannot say when I figure it out in the beginning! The author kept my attention and I found myself liking the strong female heroine character. I usually find ...more

Absolutely loved it.

This story tells of Rebekka going to live back at home with her dad and daughter, as she left her husband.

She gets a job at the local paper where she meets Sune and Sara her new colleagues.

A rich man is slaughtered and the police can't understand who's done it or why but Rebekka gets the bit between her teeth and throws her all into investigating the murder and letting the public know what's going on.

More murders happen but why????????? She finds a connection but the investig

Rebecca Franck, big city reporter, has moved home with her young daughter and stepped down to the rural newspaper in her small home town. Small town life is supposed to be sleepy but before you can count to three Rebekka is in the middle of her biggest story yet. Can Rebekka and her sidekick, photographer Sune figure out who the killer is before it's too late. Fantastic story with lots of twists and turns and a little bit of Freddy Krueger on the side. If you're looking for a well

Fairly good book, shame about the stilted dialogue. The dialogue just did not flow at all which made it difficult for me to read. It also felt a bit...flat. Not really sure how else to describe it. There was no feeling of tension, no atmosphere like you usually get in this sort of story. Perhaps that was down to the dialogue issues though.

But the story itself was good. It wasn't obvious who the killer was, the situations weren't horribly far fetched and I want to read more about the characters.

I can't recommend this book. I'm baffled that this author has written more than this book - like a lot more - and seems to be a popular author.

The plot was completely unbelievable. The main character is supposedly a reporter who has worked world-wide. However, when she get a new job, she seems at a loss as to what to do. She also lacks confidence in her abilities and seeks as much approval as she can from her boss.

The main character is also running from a mentally abusive husband. However, she

Good mystery

This book had a good sense of mystery and for me at least, there was no guessing who the real killer was till I found out, so that was well hidden. I do have a complaint about the translation, although for me I just skipped over the parts that were fragmented. This book would benefit from a better translation because it has words out of place in many areas. For some it would take away from the story. I enjoyed the story and plan to read the rest. I have to wonder what could happen no

“The more organization demonstrated by an offender, the more likely the offender will be intelligent, socially competent, capable of skilled employment, conscious of evidence, controlled, and able to avoid identification while accounting for a greater number of victims. They lack feelings of guilt or remorse and view their victims as mere objects that they can manipulate for their own perverse satisfaction and sense of power, control, mastery, and domination. Organized serial murderers may kill in such great numbers due to fantasies that feed their predatory desires and lead them to compete with themselves in a perverted contest of ’practice makes perfect.’ In other words, they continue to kill, in part, due to a desire to improve upon their last murder. In addition, they understand their misbehavior, know the difference between right and wrong, and can choose when and where to act upon their urges.” 0 likes
“Is he a psychopath?” “The relationship between psychopathic and serial killers is particularly interesting. All psychopaths do not become serial murderers. Lucky for us, because there are a lot of them out there. But serial murderers may possess some or many of the traits consistent with those of a psychopath. Psychopaths who commit serial murder do not value human life and are extremely callous in their interactions with their victims. This is particularly evident in sexually motivated serial killers who repeatedly target, stalk, assault, and kill without a sense of remorse. However, being a psychopath alone does not explain the motivations of a serial killer. Psychopaths are not sensitive to themes such as sympathy for their victims or remorse or guilt over their crimes. They do possess certain personality traits that can be detected, particularly their inherent narcissism, selfishness, and vanity. Psychopathy is a personality disorder manifested in people who use a mixture of charm, manipulation, intimidation, and occasionally violence to control others, in order to satisfy their own selfish needs.” 0 likes
