I hela världen tar polisen hjälp av andliga medier vid svåra utredningar. De gör det regelbundet trots att det inte finns något enda dokumenterat fall där ett medium bidragit till en lösning.

Flora Hansen kallar sig för spiritistiskt medium och har i många år försörjt sig på att låtsas att hon kan tala med de döda. En kväll i augusti läser hon på löpsedlarna om ett fruktans

Marcus Absolutely, you won't be missing out on much story-wise, but I would definitely recommend reading the first two too as they are really good!

Notes: Clever and on-point, it finally presents its detective as the main character rather than a mere component perspective.

Here is a detective novel that has the defects of its qualities.
He staged a policeman, Joona Linna, which is found in many novels and in it, the personal story of this man is paramount, which can be very annoying and even downright disturbing to those who have not read the other volumes, because let's be honest, not everything is understandable in the state.
I read other novels from this author but in a disorderly manner, which made all the passages concerning this inspector seem obscure to me, b

Kepler's third thriller surpasses all expectations laid out in the previous two novels, placing Joona Linna in the spotlight of this terrifying story with no halt in the action. Detective Inspector Joona Linna has been placed on quasi-administrative leave, as internal affairs investigates a violation he made while on the job. While not actively investigating, he is called to consult when a teenage girl and night nurse are found with their heads caved in at a secure group home for troubled youth. ...more

I was so fortunate to receive a free download of "The Fire Witness" by Lars Kepler through the NetGalley book review program, in exchange for an honest review. This is the third book in the Joona Linna series by Lars Kepler, author of "The Hypnotist" and "The Nightmare". As I was so impressed with The Hypnotist, and plan to read The Nightmare, I couldn't wait to read the latest novel...and I was not disappointed. This is a psychological thriller at it's best.

Policiais como este são MUITO bem vindos a chegar ao pé de mim. Tem o enredo que eu adoro ler, com uma trama principal mas com vários outros mistérios a acontecer em simultâneo que vão ser ligados ao principal no fim.

Um assassino/culpado que nunca na minha vida ia desconfiar. A motivação por trás das acções dele, completamente diferente de tudo o que já li. Remonta à infância e a histórias que se contam entre a família. . .

Um thriller que me agarrou da 1ª á ultima pagina. Não queria largar o livro nem por nada.

Para quem ainda não leu nada desta dupla de escritores fantástica, este livro faz parte da série Joona Lina, que é um inspetor da Policia Criminal sueca, que tem um 6º sentido apuradíssimo. Ele confia bastante nele, sendo o agente que mais casos resolve, dentro da policia.

Neste livro e como o próprio Joona diz, o mal mostra mais uma das suas facetas. Ele está a ser alvo de um inquérito interno, devido a uma

Još jedan odličan triler iz hladne Švedske... A mi mislili kako su te nordijske zemlje puka ljubaznost i civiliziranost..:P Dobro da nam je Stieg Larsson "otvorio oči".. Amerikanci su, skoro pa "male bebe" prema švedskim psycho killerima.. ;) Pročitan u dva dana (točnije dvije noći..).. Knjiga koju je zaista jako jako teško ispustiti iz ruku.. Slažem se sa svima koji si mi rekli da je ovo najbolji Keplerov uradak (tj. bračnog para Ahndoril koji se krije iza pseudonima).

Joona Linna is a Swedish detective currently under suspension and relieved from active duty, while under investigation by The National Police's Internal Review Board.
He is called in as an 'observer' in the investigation of violent murders at Birgittagården, a halfway home for troubled girls.

Many are drug addicts...some can be violent. For these girls, there is no alternative to Birgittagården, with its alarms and double- locked doors. The next step would be pr

Odlična knjiga koju nisam mogla ispustiti iz ruku kad sam krenula s čitanjem. Kratka poglavlja koja jednostavno tjeraju da čitaš dalje, zanimljivi likovi i logična priča.
Ovaj dvojac zaista zna napisati dobar triler :)

The Fire Witness is the third installment in the Joona Linna series by critically acclaimed husband and wife team Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril and Alexander Ahndoril, writing as “Lars Kepler”. Their Joona Linna series has sold more than twelve million copies in forty languages!

O livro "A Falsa Vidente", como deveria ser intitulado na minha modesta opinião, é o terceiro da série do Inspetor Joona Linna.

Antes de mais, aviso-vos já: este livro nada tem sobre a poderosa temática do sobrenatural ou aborda aspetos do fantástico. Não vão conhecer nenhum espírito e as vossas tranquilas noites de sono não vão ser perturbadas. Longe disso, fecha-se o livro, evaporam-se as personagens e as suas vidinhas problemáticas. A complexidade que esta abordagem exigiria não está ao alcan

Este é um autor que sigo de forma «religiosa», O Hipnotista foi uma surpresa, O Executor fez-me manter o autor no meu Top de Preferências Negras mas A Vidente deixou-me presa desde o 1º ao último parágrafo!

Gostei bastante deste livro, suspense e emoção da primeira à ultima pagina. Confesso que não tinha desconfiado do(a) assassino(a) mas se calhar alguém mais atento teria chegado lá. Sem duvida um dos melhores livros que li nos últimos tempo. Quem gosta de policiais e de não conseguir parar de ler até à ultima pagina, não deve deixar de ler este :)

Sinto-me terrivelmente mal por não ter lido esta série desde do primeiro livro. Para quem sabe, eu li o quarto livro da série O Homem da Areia, sem saber que se tratava de uma série. Na altura não me arrependi-me, mas agora arrependendo-me.

Adorei este livro, desde da primeira até à última páginas. É surpreendente, a escrita de Kepler é magnífica. A maneira como eles conseguem descrever a cena de um crime é simplesmente magnífica. Sentia-me ali

"Ο Υπνωτιστής" ήταν αρκετά καλός, το "Συμβόλαιο του Παγκανίνι" καλό αλλά σε διαφορετική ρότα από το προηγούμενο, η "Μάρτυρας της φωτιάς" όμως επαναφέρει το συγγραφικό δίδυμο στο δρόμο του ψυχολογικού θρίλερ, το οποίο φαίνεται πως του ταιριάζει γάντι.
Πρόκειται για ένα βιβλίο με πολύ έξυπνο τρόπο γραφής: τα κεφάλαια είναι μικρά, 3-7 σελίδων, και κυλάνε τόσο γρήγορα με τη δράση πάντα σε φουλ ρυθμούς, που είχα την αίσθηση ότι βρισκόμουν σε ένα κλαμπ που τα φωτορυθμικά αναβοσβήνουν και βλέπεις συνεχώ

Translated from the Swedish by Laura A Wideburg

Opening: Elisabet Grim is fifty-three years old. Her hair is streaked with grey, but her eyes are bright and happy, and when she smiles, one of her front teeth juts out impishly.

As always, I removed the dust cover before snuggling down to the big read and WHOH the cover is pure white - spooky.

The bad news is that I cannot for the life of me remember the back story that propels this episode on, and that may mean there was a shallowness underlying th

I found "The Hypnotist" a bit over the top but highly entertaining. I thought "The Nightmare" needed an editor. I'm afraid with "The FIre Witness, Lars Kepler has lost me. The chapters are very short and most end for no good reason. I know short chapters have seemed to work for James Patterson but they don't work here.
Many basic things were explained that didn't need to be and people are always talking about Joona Linna's brilliance but I find him a poorly delineated character.

The Fire Witness by Lars Kepler is the 3rd in the Detective Joona Linna Series.

First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Knopf Doubleday and Vintage Crime/Black Lizard, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Series Background:

On the whole, I liked The fire witness, but I couldn't help feeling that the book suffers from the same maladies the previous installment in the series did.

While The fire witness has a pretty good plot and delivers suspense and tension, there were instances of telling which were, to be honest, quite unnecessary. Also, I have expected more character development from a third novel in an established series. The aforementioned character development exists in traces and is confined solely to Joona Li

Σε αυτό το βιβλίο ο Κέπλερ κατάφερε με την πένα του να λύσει παραπάνω από 1 υποθέσεις.... Η ιστορία του ήταν δοσμένη με τέτοιο τρόπο ώστε να μπεις πραγματικά στην θέση του Επιθ.

Romance policial, com um enredo que poderia ser interessante mas extraordinariamente previsível ao longo do desenvolvimento da trama ... Criação de situações na narrativa que nada têm a ver com o mistério do drama e que, na minha opinião, só serviram para desviar as atenções do leitor incauto. Personagens a mais, construção de vários clímax que pouco trouxeram de substantivo à história e, no fim, a colagem de um segundo enredo que, ficamos com a ideia, apenas terá contribuído para aumentar o núm ...more

O melhor livro da dupla Kepler.

O terceiro livro de Lars Kepler faz renascer a convicção que Kepler é sem dúvida alguma o mestre do policial negro.

Já haviam mostrado toda a sua mestria com o estreante O Hipnotista e mantiveram o nível com o sucessor O Executor, mas em A Vidente Kepler junta os ingredientes de sucesso dos dois antecessores cirando assim, a meu ver, o melhor livro deles até ao momento.

Se por um lado O Hipnotista conta com uma história mais cativante e complexa em o Executor o rit

Τα κορίτσια που προσπαθούν να βρουν μια θέση στο περιθώριο του τετραδίου που γράφτηκε η ζωή τους με μαύρο μελάνι...Και μια πλοκή άνετη, δυνατή, γρήγορη και έξυπνη.Δεν θα πω πολλά, δε μπορείς να τα βάλεις εύκολα με το Γιούνα, απλώς κάθεσαι αναπαυτικά στον καναπέ σου και τον απολαμβάνεις, ξεχνώντας ακόμα και το τηλέφωνο που χτυπάει!

“A Vidente” é o terceiro livro escrito por Lars Kepler, pseudónimo de uma dupla de escritores suecos (marido e mulher) Alexander Ahndoril e Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril (de origem portuguesa).
Li os dois primeiros livros editados em Portugal – “O Hipnotista” e “O Executor” – que se revelaram dois policiais medianamente bem escritos: n”O Hipnotista” é introduzido na narrativa o tema da “hipnose”, como método fundamental da investigação criminal, num enredo original com destaque para uma interessante
