Although this is book 3 in the series, you aren't missing a lot by starting here. A fisherman pulls up his lobster trap and gets the shock of his life: the body of a child. Although the mystery surrounds the murder of this child, the focus really isn't about the murder of children or child abuse. It's a much deeper story than that and goes back nearly 100 years and is much about nature vs. nuture. The best way to appreciate this book is by listening to it. It's too difficult for Americans to wrap our tongues around the Swedish alphabet and David Thorn trills the words like a native. (Perhaps he is!) Listening allows the reader to become immersed in the story of evil rather than getting bogged down in place names and trying to remember who belongs with whom and just when you're sure where the evil lies, it's somewhere you least expected. It's very well done and ends on a cliffhanger for the next mystery.
