Lynda Kelly I personally prefer to read a series in order. However, they released them in English OUT of order so I ended up reading books 4, then 1 and now 2.…moreI personally prefer to read a series in order. However, they released them in English OUT of order so I ended up reading books 4, then 1 and now 2. For me it spoiled book 1 as I was expecting things to follow on from the one I'd read and of course, they didn't, but at that time only number 4 had been translated ! Hope this helps if you can work out what I mean !(less)

Follow Police Lieutenant Inspector Daniel Trokic and his team in Denmark for this crime thriller which starts off when an 8 year-old boy is found dead in a stream running through the village of Mårslet. He has been strangled with a fish line and has severe burn marks on his hands.

Although this novel is set in Denmark, the locations made no difference whatsoever to my enjoyment of this book. The culture did not even feel Danish and this novel could have been set in any country within the Western

Book three in this tightly written, well-plotted, traditional mystery sees Danish Inspector Daniel Trokic investigating the mysterious death of a young boy, found in a stream, strangled by fishing line and with severe burns on his hands. Suspects include an old man with a shady past and an obsession with beetles, and a teenager with a guilty conscience. Things get even more complicated when Trokic sees a connection to a drowning accident in the same stream 30 years ago.

The death of a child is always tragic. When a lttle boy is murdered and his body is deposited in an icy creek, Det.Trokic and his team are determined to apprehend those responsible. They will plumb the depoths of an especially ugly world to find the killer and expose the truth.

This is an engaging police procedural. Trokic is an interesting and likable character. Pacing was a tad uneven and there is much unecessary repetition (Trokic's unruly cowlicks, his prediliction for red wine, whatg the cha

Over the past few years, I've read plenty of "Scandi-noir" - some better than others. Earlier this year I read Inger Wolf's Dark September and knew I had to find more of this Danish author's books. Frost and Ashes didn't disappoint. Well-written, full of twists and turns you won't see coming.

My only regret is finishing it so quickly. Truly a worthwhile addition to the genre. I'm looking forward to many more of Inger's novels.

Avid Follower

I don't give away the plots in any of my reviews but I will say that I'm now an avid follower of Inge r Wolf mysteries\crime stoppers! I have now read all three books that have been translated into English. If you are a mystery buff then these are for you. I'm betting you'll love it.

I LOVED Under A Black Sky, hated Dark September and I'm happy to say she's back to form with this story. I think one issue with these books is the order they were translated in......she's not the first Nordic author this has happened with and I'm not sure why publishers do it. Seems dumb to me when it's a SERIES of books !! Anyway, I digress. I really enjoyed this, my first read of 2019 and I'm impressed to read the cover photo is one of her own pictures, too. How nice to have your own creation ...more

This book was good, but it left me depressed and anguish. With a really bitter taste. Not the feeling I was looking for at the moment.
I've liked to find Daniel Trokic again, I like his voice but it's been a difficult read due to the nature of the crime. I knew since the beggining this wasn't going to be easy. They murdered a child, but still... Despite I've read worse in the past but this time it's been too much. The crime is horrible but when you discover the truth laying behind the crime, it's

Children’s nightmares

A lot of true investigative data went into the story of this book. How do we contain the evil in society, and in the lives of children, who have a right to be safe, not a life of abuse and deprivation. The story within the story of The turbulent life of the investigative police who are also dealing with a missing cousin was good. It reminds the reader that they are only human too

Dark thriller

Murder combined with child pornography. Pornography made by their own parents. As a side story, arson. All tied together makes for a very dark and hard to read story at times. Pedophiles should not be allowed to walk this earth, at least not as free people, ever.

A solid 4-star Danish murder mystery

Amazing book, very well written: Wolf's prose is excellent; plot development excellent as well; narrative is very good; characters are fleshed out and multi-faceted – even ancillary characters are presented as interesting. The plot is fairly straightforward: a puzzling death, seeming suspicious and quickly determined to be murder. As the investigation progresses, dead ends and blind alleys string out the investigation and occasionally changes the strategy and

Mysteries abound

This was a fun book to get a glimpse into police work in another country. Me Wolf manages to capture the feel of police work in Denmark in the cold winter. She does a great job of bringing in suspense and keeps the reader guessing where the novel will take you was a good read.

Good book, like the author’s way of presenting things. Characters are presented so well you can picture them. A few twists, but patient work finds the culprit. Scandinavia is pictured as a very dark place again. But good stories.
This is another great Nordic Noir book, and is second in the Daniel Trokics series. I'm hoping that they will continue to translate this series into English. It is indeed noir, but the mystery is well plotted and the clues distributed fairly. And I do enjoy the characters.

This was an interesting book. It discusses such horrific topics as child pornography and using children for money and exploitation. The story has some heavy topics that are hard to imagine. I enjoyed the plot and what the detectives have to go through to solve these crimes.

Dark and hypnotic

Frost and Ashes is a dark hypnotic book that left me having bad dreams for a couple of nights. It got right under my skin.
I’m ready to read more in this series!

A new author for me and I was pleased to have read this book. Well written and a good story. I read this on my kindle and for some reason it broke some of the lines of text.

It took to long to get the story started and to fast to finish it. It was well writen, but with to many boring details

Really good development of characters and plot. Looking forward to her next book. Lots of information about living in a different place out of the United States.

Inger Wolf has written another excellent mystery to add to the Daniel Trokics series.
The place:Denmark. The murder of Lucas Mork took place by the creek. Lucas was the son of
Karsten Mork and Jytte.Not only was Lucas in the water filled creek----He was missing a day.
It was also discovered that he was strangled. A fishing line was around his throat.He was strangled.

The novel was filled with strange pasts.Another murder in the 70's was now part of the investigation/

Another novel (I just finished “The Boy” by Tami Hoag) about a dead little boy found in shallow water and a bevy of other mistreated and abused children. Lisa, relatively new to Homicide, comes from an IT job that dealt primarily with the on-line proliferation of child pornography. Unfortunately, it seeps into this case. I am finding this topic emotionally depleting and have decided to give a pass to novels that have children as victims - at least for a while. I do like the Daniel Trokic charact ...more

Wow !!!

Please Ms. Wolf, more, more, more !!!
I've fallen in love with Detective Trokic... I've enjoyed all 3 of your novels immensely
Also they have been instrumental (pun intended) as well, while reading I became curious
about his musical choices and did some research and turns out that they are eclectic and another pleasure to enjoy !!!
Particularly the guitar riffs of Joe Santriani

This is the 3rd Daniel Trokic book I have read and once again was a really excellent police procedural, despite the extremely gruesome subject matter. Trokic is a very interesting and complex character and the clues unfolded gradually to create a picture of a horrific set of crimes.
Nadishka Aloysius
A thoroughly enjoyable read. There was a strong message about child pornography in the and I liked the author's message at the end about how and why she wrote this.
The pace was a little slow, but the murderer at the end was a great twist.
If you like crime fiction is a Scandinavian setting, you will love this one!

I love the Daniel Trokic series

I can’t say enough about how fantastic Inger Wolf’s Daniel Trokic series are. I was pulled in from the first book and each one since and Inger does not disappoint. Plus I love that the books are set in Aarhus, Denmark, her home and one of the places on my bucket list to visit. Check out the Daniel Trokic series, I promise you’ll enjoy them.

I liked the book but was distressed by the theme. The author handled the topic well. This was Book 2 of the series following Detective Daniel Trokic. I will go back and read the first book. I’m looking forward to reading more by the author.

Mistaken Purchase

Very unhappy to have accidentally purchased this, but thought I would give it a read. Still consider it a big mistake. Just not my style of book and it is something I would pick up and put back on the shelf if it was a paperback.
Feb 09, 2019 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition

Another one of Inger Wolf's fantastic books. The twists and turns led me to a plot that I didn't see till the end. I would recommend this book also her other books Under a black sky and Dark September.
Vernon D. Keyser

Plot deals with rather unpleasant subjects. Do not know if this is originally written in English or if translated from Danish.
