Διαβάζοντας το "Μαύρο Μονοπάτι" ήταν σα να διάβαζα ένα εντελώς ανεξάρτητο βιβλίο από τα δύο προηγούμενα.Επιτέλους,ο φόνος δε συνάδει με τη θρησκεία.Επιτέλους,δεν έχουμε άτομα κολλημένα με τη θρησκεία - πόσα πια να χωράνε σε μια μικρή πόλη όπως η Κίρουνα;!Επιτέλους,μιλάμε για ένα βιβλίο με δράση,με παράλληλη γραφή τόσο σε παρελθόν ...more
The Black Path was nominated in 2009 for a Barry Award for Best Paperback Original.
Whoa, this one is CRITICAL. Read this. Try to read this as soon after The Blood Spilt , 2, as possible. It'll help with remembering as Larsson pulls events at the end of The Blood Spilt right in at the start of The Black Path. And do not skip ahead to Until Thy Wrath Be Past , 4, an ...more
Larsson's characters all have thick backstories -- sometimes to the point of pointlessness and with a few requiring knowledge of her previous novels. It's nice to see intelligent, capable female leads (this book has two).
I balked at the use of psychic powers in one side character, though, an ...more
Δεν νομίζω να συνεχίσω με το τέταρτο πάντως...
Personally, I think that Black Path is excellent. I like all of the storylines and am not troubled by the fact that our heroine, Rebeka, isn't always the main focus of the book. I enjoy Anna-Maria Mella and her partner, Sven-Erik, tremendously, and I think that the back and forth of the different plots was skillfully handled and very effective ...more
SETTING: Kiruna (north Sweden)
SERIES: #3 of 3
It's early spring, and the ice on the lake in Tornetrask, northern Sweden, is thick. The inhabitants of nearby Kiruna journey here to go ice fishing, setting up small cabins on runners called arks, which protect them as they fish. A powerful storm blows one of the arks away, and its owner scrambles into a nearby cabin to escape from the elements. And what he finds is more ...more
Maybe they are just better educated: and informed about the world.
I often think so - but anyhow here is another cracker, with a character (and cast of characters) all its own.
I don't know about you but I love stories where I learn about cultures I know little or nothing about.
I liked this one enormously, partly because it's set in a part of Scandinavia I knew nothing about - the north east wher ...more
Confesso que os autores nórdicos me apaixonam.
Inna Wahring, uma executiva da empresa Kallis Mining é encontrada assassinada num das cabanas "flutuantes" que povoam o lago Torneträsk.
Rebecka Martisson, que se encontra em recuperação de uma enorme trauma, acaba por ser uma peça essencial na compreensão deste quebra cabeças que Anna-Maria Mella, a inspectora da policia encarregado do caso, tem em mãos.
Este livro é um po ...more
Não gostei da história por trás do assassinato daquela mulher. Odiei as cenas do passado que, apesar de poderem servir para melhor explicar as coisas, eram desnecessárias tantas e tão longas. Não gostei do fim.
A única coisa que aproveitei foi mesmo as cenas em que entraram Rebecka, Anna Maria e Sven Erik.
W książce zatytułowanej niestety w równie wydumany sposób, jak poprzednio (tym razem: “I tylko czarna ścieżka” ...more
The path to home.
Writing that will amaze and hold you. Simply and deeply descriptive. Inner and outer narrative creating a story of complex people. Police action. The past and present context of character's lives. Åsa Larsson has, in The Black Path: Rebecka Martinsson #3, written yet another superbly crafted crime novel.
The storyline follows Rebecka as she recovers from depression, and a psychotic break. She is a gifted tax lawyer who has returned to the frozen north of her home town, Kiruna,...more
This thriller takes place in Sweden. A woman is found murdered in a lake house and it appears that she was tortured by electrocution and stabbed multiple times. Her name is Ina Wattring and she is the public relations officer for Kallis Mines, a multi-national mining company with ties to mines in conflict-laden African nations. Ina and her brother Didi both work ...more
To już moje trzecie spotkanie z Rebeką Martinsson. Uznałabym je w porównaniu do poprzednich za rozczarowujące. Jestem na ten fakt zła. Autorka potrafi lepiej równoważyć akcję. Rozpoczęło się ciekawie i końców ...more
