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.

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 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.

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

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

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....

This is the first book of Willow Rose's that I have read and I found it an enjoyable, quick read that held my attention. Great plot written simply. I have quite a few more of the author's other books loaded on my Kindle so it will be interesting to see how the others compare.

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

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

Just not feeling this one right now. May try again later. I was barely even started so I am not even going to DNF this one.

At this point, if I am not totally sucked in from the get go, I am just moving on. No harm, no foul.

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.

Willow Rose has apparently "sold" over a million books, and I use quotation marks for that because I personally have added about 6 or 7 of her books to my kindle for free. After finally reading one of them I have the sneaking suspicion that most of those millions were grabbed up as freebies, because it surely can't be based on the writing. I've read books by Scandinavian authors before (Jo Nesbo, Stieg Larsson) and while once in a great while the translation to English might seem a little off or ...more

So intense!
This fast-paced mystery follows a Rebekah as she tries to solve a serial murder spree. At times, she gets way to close for comfort and it gets pretty scary, but in a good way.
I can't wait to read more in this series!
A gripping page-turner that is sure to satisfy the thriller lover in you!

"Seriously disturbing, but they got what they deserved" would be the title of this review!
There were enough false trails scattered about the book that the ending was not predictable.
A plot with employment angst, gruesome deaths, victims who deserved it, and family tension.
I want to say it was an enjoyable read, but that sounds like I enjoy reading about people being disemboweled! So I will say it was a suspenseful read, with a healthy dose of red herrings - which I admire in a book.

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

This book is the first in the Rebekka Franck murder-mystery series, and if it's anything to judge them by, it's going to be an awesome series! Set in Denmark, Rebekka is a journalist who's returned to her hometown after her marriage has broken down. Expecting nothing exciting to happen, she's taken aback when a gruesome murder happens - and gets some very interesting stories to write as a result, because the victim's a very unpleasant local rich man. But when more murders occur that are obviousl ...more

From the title, I expected this one to be creepy and I certainly got that. While this first book in the Rebekka Franck series is a murder mystery, it also serves as an introduction to the world of our main character. Rebekka has her own turmoil going on with a crumbling marriage and getting settled back in her home town. Her new job as a reporter for her small town newspaper takes off rather quickly with a gruesome murder and soon, she's on the hunt for a serial killer. Rebekka's personal life m ...more

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

"Awesome Investigative Thriller"

This story is set in Denmark, in the coastal town of Karrebaeksminde. Rebekka Franck, a journalist, moves back to her home town with her six-year old daughter, Julie. She's trying to avoid her ex-husband (well, they are not divorced yet) and start a new life for a small local newspaper. But a shock strikes the residents of this small town when one of the country's wealthiest men is brutally murdered at his summer home. She and her younger geek photographer, Sune,

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 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

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.

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

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'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

After some problems with her husband, Rebekka moves back home with her dad, bringing her daughter with her to start a new life. Things get complicated and I don't want to spoil the plot for you. It was a really good book so am going to start on the next one in the series.

“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
