My full review on Literary Inklings

Some Kind of Peace is a finely-crafted, beautifully written suspense novel from sisters Camilla Grebe and Åsa Träff. Together Grebe and Träff intertwine keen psychological observation, vivid imagery, and a strongly unpredictable storyline to create a novel that is simultaneously a taught thriller and an explorative character study. Stockholm’s melancholy weather lends a certain type of moodiness to the novel’s sharp-edged story, setting the scene for grandiose dramatics that reach through the book and grab the reader’s attention fully. I was instantly able to connect with Siri and I found her first-person, present-tense narrative to be full of wisdom and even a touch of wit, though she maintains an understandable moroseness that endears the reader to her in her struggles.

Harry Just finished this one Casee. I liked it. Thoroughly readable and I like the way the chapters were crafted and the way the main character, Siri, came across in first person. Wonderful review!
