En bil kör ut över kajkanten i Helsingborgs hamn efter en våldsam biljakt. Allt pekar på att det var en olycka, men när föraren, en it-entreprenör som gjort sig en förmögenhet på mobilspel, obduceras visar det sig att han redan varit död i två månader då han hållits nedfryst.

Det är vår och nästan två år har passerat sedan händelserna i Offer utan ansikte. På Helsingborgs

I just finished reading it and it's fine to read on its own. Some past events in character lives are mentioned but the plot is strong enough without that background. That being said, I'm now planning to get my hands on the first two books.(less)

This is the third in the Fabian Risk series which I have read from the beginning. As so often in the Scandi-Noir tradition, the body count is gruesomely high with Fabian's entire family having a storyline. Fabian and his wife, Sonja, head ever closer to divorce, Sonja's art work is displayed in an exhibition, and she accepts a commission from the wealthy Alex. Theodor, the son, deals with the family upheaval by becoming ever more remote, focusing his attention on Alexandra, a girl he has a heavy ...more

This is #3 in a series featuring Swedish cop Fabian Risk. After events in previous books, he probably thought he’d seen it all. He’d be wrong. It seems in the world of serial killers, there’s always some cheeky up & comer looking to make a splash.

Body #1 is fished out of a car driven into Helsingborg harbour. It’s no surprise the autopsy reveals a high blood alcohol level. But it’s a bit of a shocker when the coroner shares that the victim actually died 2 months ago. All his dip in

SWEDISH REVIEW

Arton grader minus är den första boken jag har läst i Fabian Risk serien, men jag har hört mycket gott om serien. Nu är det alltid lite vanskligt att börja läsa mitt i en serie, men har man tur så är boken lätt att komma in i och man blir intresserad av att läsa föregående böcker. Arton grader minus handling var intressant i och med att det första offret de hittar har varit död i 2 månader men att någon har använt sig av hans identitet under den tiden. Frågan är har detta hänt ti

I won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway thanks to the generosity of the publishers. Possibly one of the last due to Goodreads’ unfair and silly changes to the giveaway system restricting all giveaways to residents of America. I believe these changes will change Indie and traditional publishing, and not for the better, making it harder to get authors to attract new readers.

But I digress.

Eighteen Below is an engaging read with so many twists and turns you’ll need to use Google maps to help find you

Ibland tycker jag att den svenska deckargenren är ganska uttjatad och att om man ska gå efter dessa, så är Sverige ett enormt farligt land där seriemördare lurar bakom vartenda hörn. När jag läser Ahnhem så struntar jag i det. Han klarar att sälja sin historia, hur långsökt den är, med finess och spänning.

Fabian Risk jagar i den här boken en mördare som fryser ner sina offer, anammar deras identitet och tömmer deras konton. Samtidigt är hans son Theodor ute på villspår, hans fru Sonja mer fokuse

I was completely hooked from chapter 1. While it seems that there are 2 completely different, unlinked cases going on in this book, you get the impression that is not the case at all. But how they're linked is what keeps you guessing. The writing and the dialogue between these characters is fantastic and keeps the reader hooked the whole book. And just when you think you've got it worked out, the rollercoaster changes direction. Utterly addictive reading

Ein Auto stürzt vor vielen Zeugen von einem Quai in Wasser. Zuerst sieht alles nach Selbstmord aus, doch zufällig stellte sich heraus, dass der Fahrer bereits 2 Monate tot ist und deshalb nicht der Lenker des Fahrzeugs gewesen sein konnte. Die Ermittler stehen vor einem Rätsel, das nur ganz langsam gelöst werden kann.
In Kopenhagen kommen etwa zur gleichen Zeit Menschen sehr grausam zu Schaden. Eine Welle der Gewalt, bekannt als "Happy Slapping" greift um sich.

I would like to thank Netgalley and Heads of Zeus for a review copy of Eighteen Below, the third novel to feature detective Fabian Risk now working in Malmo and former Copenhagen detective Dunja Hougaard, now a patrol officer in Helsongør.

When IT millionaire Peter Brise drives into the harbour after a car chase the police assume it's suicide until the pathologist reveals that he was dead and had been for a while when he went into the water. How can this be when he was seen a few days earlier? In

Na "zonder gezicht" vroeger te hebben gelezen en waarbij ik dat ook echt wel een goed boek vond, ben ik blij 18° onder nul te hebben kunnen lezen.
Fabian Risk toont ook hier hoe vastberaden, sterk, krachtig en doelbewust hij aan het werk gaat, dit desondanks zijn persoonlijke problemen. Zowel hij als zijn vrouw leiden zowat een eigen leven tenzij het over de kinderen gaat. Theo is geen gemakkelijke puber, maar ook Mathilda blijkt sterk te veranderen. Door zijn harde werken aan een zeer moeilijk e

Oj, vilken bok. Det gick inte att sluta lyssna. Otroligt spännande. Jag är glad att jag har upptäckt Stefan Ahnhem. Jag längtar efter nästa bok. Om du aldrig har läst någon av hans böcker rekommenderar jag dig att läsa bok nummer två först Den nionde graven, sedan ettan, Offer utan ansikte, och därefter den här, tredje boken.

Bra personporträtt, bra miljöskildringar och förmågan att hålla läsaren fängslad från första sidan till sista. Enda gången jag reagerade rejält var när ordet vart användes

A Nordic noir crime thriller, if you loved The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, you’re going to adore this dark, fiendishly clever book, the third in Ahnhem’s Fabian Risk series. A Swedish detective on the murder squad, Risk is a clever man dealing with trauma within his own family as well as holding it together on one of the toughest jobs in the world, all while covering for his slowly unravelling boss’s alcoholism.

Eighteen Below details two crimes, both equally brutal, in two different countries,

Stefan Ahnhemin dekkari Miinus kahdeksantoista astetta oli yksinkertaisesti huono ja koko tarina epäuskottava. Tämä on rikossarjan kolmas osa, ja käsillä oleva murhamysteeri on itsenäinen tarina. Kaikenlaista ylimääräistä sivujuonta on mukana, ja ovelasti kirjailija päättääkin tämän kertomuksen, jotta lukija tarttuisi seuraavaankin – minulle tämä osa tanskalaisdekkarisarjasta riitti mainiosti.

Thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this advance copy of Eighteen Below. I had previously read - and enjoyed - "Victim Without A Face" and "The Ninth Grave", so I had great expectations for this third entry in the Fabian Risk stories; and I was not disappointed.

Although this one started out a little slower than the first two, it did gain momentum as the - as per Ahnhem's wont - multiple storylines played out: identity theft of the deadly kind (with a twist that I really didn't see co

I won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway.

I absolutely loved it! I haven't read the first two books in the series yet, but I'm definitely planning to now. I love the characters and the writing style. The plot kept me hooked. Already looking forward to the next book!

Thought a few bits were grisly, and that's not really my taste, but they fit the villains.

I would highly recommend it.

I can't read this anymore, I don't think this book is completely for me. I love reading suspense and crime novels but this is soooo slow.

Arton grader minus är en mycket välskriven och lättläst deckare. Den har ett mycket högt driv, och är en riktig bladvändare. Berättelsen är alldeles lagom komplicerad. Det är inga problem att hänga med, men jag lyckas ändå bli överraskad i en del av detaljerna. Jag läste Arton grader minus under en tung och tröttsam period och den lyckades ändå hålla mitt intresse, så att jag längtade efter att få läsa i den på kvällarna, trots tröttheten. Bara det är ett mycket gott betyg.

In Zweden is Stefan Ahnhem een steeds meer rijzende ster. Hij wordt zelfs al vergeleken met gevestigde auteurs als Jo Nesbø, Håkan Nesser en Henning Mankell. Zijn debuut, Zonder gezicht, is door Deense thrillerlezers onlangs uitgeroepen tot de zesde beste thriller ooit. In eigen land staat hij op de shortlist van de Crimetime Specsavers Award 2017, een prijs die hij twee jaar eerder al gewonnen heeft voor zijn debuut, waarvan in Zweden al meer dan 260.000 exemplaren zijn verkocht.

Having read the other two books in this series I had high hopes for this one but sadly I didn’t find this one to be quite as good as its predecessors and it took me almost a week to finish, whereas the others only took days to read.

I don’t know if it was because the format of the writing structure changed slightly or that it was due to the fact this one is more of a slow burner I’m not sure. But saying all that I would still read this one again!

Thank you to Stefan Ahnhem and House of Anansi Press for the free advance copy!!

A quote from NDR Radio tells us that Ahnhem is "a true heir to Stieg Larsson". That's high praise and sets up even higher expectations. This is a fast-past, decently plotted Swedish thriller, but its nowhere close to Larsson. Its also definitely not a standalone. The characters constantly refer to past events, which is really annoying, but even worse is the fact that there are many subplots and character resolution
