It is winter on Gotland, and fourteen-year-old Fanny is missing. She had no friends to speak of other than the horses she took care of at the local racing stable, and seems to have been an unhappy and isolated teenager, the daughter of an absent Jamaican musician and an instable Swedish mother. Is her disappearance somehow connected to the recent brutal murder of alcoholi

I really enjoyed this Swedish novel. Fanny a 14 year old girl goes missing and her body later found, she was a quiet girl that preferred the company of horses than people and spent most of her spare time at the stables caring for them. While this is happening another murder of a local photographer Henry Dahlstrom occurs. Henry had just had a very successful night at the races and had won a considerable amount of money. Are these deaths connected? what could these two people possibly have in comm ...more

Visby - Cidade Património Mundial - Ilha de Gotland (Suécia)

Depois de “Ninguém Viu” a sueca Mari Jungstedt (n. 1962) leva-nos de novo para a cidade património mundial de Visby, no cenário idílico da ilha de Gotland. Desta vez “Ninguém Quis saber” protagonizado pelo já conhecido inspector Anders Knutas na resolução de um novo caso policial. Primeiro o assassinato brutal do fotógrafo alcoólico Henry Dahlstrom, depois o desaparecimento e morte de Fanny, uma rapariga de 14 anos – dois crimes aparent

I have mixed feelings about this book. The beginning is strong, and very intriguing, and it pulled me into the story immediately. When the character of Fanny Jansson is introduced I immediately empathised with her and was willing her to get out of the horrible situation she was in. In the latter half of the book I had some idea who the murderer might be, and it turned out I was correct. I was pleased that Jungstedt chose this character as the murderer, as I thought it was the right direction to ...more

Mari Jungstedt has become one of my favourite Swedish female writers. This one is also a solid detective/whodunnit story. I kept guessing (almost) till the end. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for some passages that have no direct link to the plot (but are important for following novels). The author's strength lies in the description of Visby, which makes me long to visit the place, and the plot. Recommend it a lot.

Tinha alguma curiosidade em ler um livro desta autora, depois de tão boas críticas com que me tenho deparado. Logo que possível, agarrei a oportunidade e, só depois de findo, soube que é a sequela do livro anterior, Ninguém Viu.

Nalguns casos, não é necessária a leitura do volume anterior, mas, neste caso, é bom ler, no que diz respeito à estória entre as personagens Johan e Emma. Todavia, Ninguém Quis Saber não tem pontos em comum com o outro, pela natureza das investigações criminais neste abor

Although this book made me want to visit Gotland, Sweden, it didn't make me want to read more mysteries by Jungstedt. I didn't manage to figure out the mystery, but to be honest, I don't think there were enough relevant details throughout the book to care about the rather rushed climax.

Apesar de não ter custado ler, é uma história fraquinha, com um final precipitado e sem grande nexo para mim.
Nunca imaginei quem seria o assassino e a explicação que foi dada não me convenceu.
Até quase ao final ia dar-lhe 3*, mas com este final já não as posso dar...

(Para quem não esperava nada, esta foi uma surpresa muito agradável!)

Ninguém Quis Saber caracteriza todos os invisíveis carentes de atenção com os quais no cruzamos diariamente, dos quais só nos lembramos quando já demasiado tarde.
Diversas vidas díspares que, aparentemente, nada têm comum, abrem-nos as portas para um policial que aborda questões sociais muito diversificadas sem que, em momento algum, se perca como tema central uma minuciosa investigação.

Le doy 3/5 por la narración. La historia es floja; para ser una novela de intriga, ésta escasea un poco. Esperaba un poco más por las críticas que había escuchado, especialmente a nivel de la trama en sí, pero tampoco me siento totalmente defraudada. Para mí la narración es ideal para una novela corta bien escrita. Lectura ágil, con su justa dosis de divagaciones y en un estilo que caracteriza a los escandinavos. Me encanta leer historias que se desarrollan en el norte de Europa, es como un mund ...more

Once again, Mari Jungstedt delivers an engaging, intimate thriller.

I didn't read these in the correct order, so I'm back at the beginning of Johan and Emma's relationship. She is as irritating as ever. That's all I'll say about her. Him, I have more sympathy for. He's much more honest and organic. I believe his reactions. I empathize.

But that's not why we read mysteries. Particularly murder mysteries. We read them for the gory details, for the vicarious fear and thrill. And Jungstedt provides p

Podruhé čtu knihy Mari Jungstedt a baví mě stejně, jako při jejich prvním čtení. Zajímavé, nečernobílé postavy, i když o mnoho sympatičtější a pozitivnější, než v dílech Johana Theorina. Zima, to je pro mne četba skandinávských detektivek a když se dívám z okna, tak myslím, že jich letos stihnu ještě mnoho.

Nice crime fiction with a slow unravel of the solution. Characters with depth and realistic descriptions.
This is a series and each book contains specific cases and in that way they work as one-offs but the characters evolve and things that happens in one book effects another so I recommend to read them in order.

As the first book, this was a really entertaining book. The perfect beach read, and even better than the first book. I can't give it more than three stars though, because there wasn't enough meat on the plot and the ending was too rushed. Continuing on with the series though.

must say i am not a fan of the abrupt ending to the books in this series... oddly, this mystery/crime seems almost to take a back seat to the personal lives of the police and press members... not a whole lot of plot development here, but an easy read at least...

Stilted language and/or translation. Altogether not very credible, and I couldn't empathise with any of the characters.

I got confused which is nothing, absolutely nothing, new. But one night, for some reason, I plucked THE INNER CIRCLE by Mari Jungstedt from the stacks, and started reading. Then I got quite convinced I'd already read the book. So I went to check and found UNSEEN, which I then re-read, ending up very struck by the similarities between the two plots. Which got me wondering if there were similarities in all of them, and as I had a number of the books to hand, I thought I'd read them in order and se ...more

Dichterbij dan je denkt is de tweede thriller van Mari Jungstedt. Er komen dezelfde personages in voor als in het succesvolle debuut van Mari Jungstedt, Die je niet ziet (2005).

Op het winterse eiland Gotland leidt inspecteur Anders Knutas het onderzoek over de moord op de fotograaf Henry Dahlström. Hij is aan lager wal geraakt en is alcoholicus. Hij heeft altijd zijn fototoestel in de aanslag en verdient hier soms wat mee. Ook klust hij wat bij. Hij werd vermoord in zijn donkere kamer in een kel

Czasami łapię się na zabawnej myśli - źródłem wszelkich nieszczęść, jakie spotykają bohaterów i społeczności przedstawione w kryminałach, są autorzy kryminałów. Podobne uczucie miałem w przypadku lektury drugiej powieści Jungstedt. Gotlandia z pierwszej części cyklu była sielska, anielska... aż tu bum! Seryjny morderca. Romans. Inne przykrości.
U Jungstedt podoba mi się to, że wykorzystuje potencjał serii powieści i pozwala niektórym wątkom rozwijać się bardzo powoli (jeśli ktoś wcześniej przeczy

Acabei de ler este livro há dias. Um livro duma autora que não conhecia, mas que agradou.
É um livro que aparentemente é a continuação de outro, no entanto não senti a mínima falta em não ter lido o anterior. Na verdade a estória anterior poderia compor esta, mas não se sente a sua falta.
Tenho algumas ressalvas em relação ao tamanho dos capítulos, demasiado longos por vezes, levando a uma leitura forçada para acabar o capítulo e não perder o fio à meada. Um ponto a ter atenção é também os súbitos

Review via Crime Beat by N. P. Statham.

In Unspoken, Mari Jungstedt questions how easily we as individuals and as a society manage to overlook that which is hard to deal with. The problems with alcoholism, drugs and unemployment that plague every single town in the world, the individuals who have fallen off the grid, the ones that desperately need help but are unable or too scared to ask for it.

Everywhere around us we pretend we don't see them. The abused children. The neglected elderly. The home

Unspoken is the second novel in Mari Jungstedt's Inspector Knutas series, set on the island of Gotland. It opens with alcoholic photographer Henry Dahlstrom winning a packet on the races, and subsequently coming to a sticky end. Dahlstrom appears to have been murdered for his winnings; a pretty straightforward case. However there are some loose ends that cause Knutas to look further. As the investigation proceeds, fourteen year old Fanny Jansson is becoming deeply embroiled in a highly dubious r ...more

This was a good, though somewhat disturbing book. Her writing is very tight, with no word unwasted. I like the 'cast of characters' but found the Johan/Emma situation distracting, not interesting in this book. The back and forth is getting tiresome, though there is a sense that it will be resolved soon. And sometimes, the fact that Knutas is just an ordinary detective with faults and a family, is a little frustrating.

However, the mystery was very good and there was a lot of suspense. The narrati
