Esta saga es súper sencilla y a la vez, me gusta mucho. Un caso, mentiras, en capítulos cortos que me enganchan un montón . A ver si acabo alguna de las sagas de novela negra que tengo empezadas

Liked this better than some of her others (perhaps because the annoying Emma Winarve is less in evidence!) The Gotland setting - in this case, mainly the even more intriguing Fårö, where the murders actually take place - is wonderful, beautifully described. A group of 40-something friends arrange a trip to Fårö in connection with an Ingmar Bergman festival, but tragedy strikes. There are several red herrings, and I did follow one of those to the wrong conclusion for quite a while. The melodrama ...more

Esta vez sí que me ha enganchado mucho más el libro. La verdad que no sabía de quién sospechar y con esos giros de trama que hay nunca sabes con qué te va a sorprender la autora.
El Segoviano
Es el ultimo libro que he leído de esta autora, los anteriores también, y forma parte del grupo de novela negra sueca que es la mar de interesante aunque alguno hay que no me atrae demasiado.
Esta particularmente lo hace muy bien. el libro está muy bien escrito y en definitiva es un episodio mas de un inspector que se ha inventado que se llama Anders Knutas.
Lo tienes que leer de una tirada porque es capaz de mantener el interés desde el principio hasta el final de la lectura.
Gary Van Cott
A decent book but the author frequently writes anonymous narrative sections. I am not fond of this technique. Then at some point there is a big reveal and you find out who it is. I would prefer to see everything from the eyes of the main police character(s).

Un thriller increíble, con giros inesperados que te dejan sin aliento. Argumentos entrelazados y fuertes, muertes y desapariciones.
Un final inesperado, que nos muestra cuán lejos puede llegar una persona cuando siente que pierde todo.

Wonderful thriller, mystery. Mari Jungstedt is a pro. She is one of Sweden's premier authors.

a superb mystery bogged won by lots of personal drama from the many characters that come and go in the Knutas universe... pared back to its details and those involved, this could have been a powerful tale... i get the readers need for (fictional) drama in the (fictional) lives of the (fictional) characters, but this book had a bit too much about relationships/family for me... a great plot that got muddied with tangents... i do enjoy Knutas and Karin (still don't like Johan) but hope for more pag ...more
2.5/5. Correcta sin más. No me ha transmitido demasiado.
Anto  Martini
Hubo cosas que me resultaron predecibles y otras que me sorprendieron enormemente. Por ejemplo, desde la primera página me imaginé quien iba a morir. Era como si el personaje tuviera un enorme cartel y gritaba "soy hombre muerto". También, como en toda historia de este tipo, hubo algunas pistas falsas que sabían que estaban para despistar a los lectores.
A pesar de estos pequeños detalles que no la hacen una historia de diez puntos, Mari sabe cautivar muy bien al lector y tenerlo preso de

Herregud så lättläst! Mari Jungstedt uppehåller sig verkligen inte längre än vad hon behöver vid sina karaktärers tankesätt, rörelsemönster och levnadsritualer. Fort som attan ska det gå, gärna hoppa några dagar här och där så att vi verkligen RUSAR mot uppgörelsen av mordet. Att karaktärerna inte hinner med i takten tycks vara av mindre vikt. Nu kan det ju visserligen vara så att jag tycker att det går för fort just för att jag inte läst något tidigare av författaren, och det här ju faktiskt är ...more

Yet again I have obviously not read the same novel as other reviewers because I think The Double Silence is a welcome return to form for Ms Jungstedt after a couple of sub par offerings. After an initial, very mysterious sex scene and a woman returning home and finding her front door open, leaving you to wonder what happened next it is slow to get going as it focuses on a group of 3 couples preparing to go on holiday together and then on their holiday. A windsurfer sees Sam, one of the group, be ...more

This a wonderfully well crafted and cleverly thought through crime mystery. Although there is the hint of violence and danger in the early chapters it is a good while before a murder occurs.
Unlike many stories the background is told in the present time leading up to the events that destroy the world of a group of close-knit friends. This gives us a perspective on these events and makes us as involved as the Police, who identify suspects but can't really make a case.
It is fascinating as the layer

Another thrilling read by one of my favourite Swedish authors. Especially the first 80 pages are very thrilling. Something is about to happen, but what and to whom? Later on I kept on reading, because what exactly happened, by whom and why?
It's all about three befriended couples who are on a weekend trip together. The couples are very close, they live next to each other, do shopping together, babysit each other's kids, go on holidays together. It looks like an idyllic situation, but is it reall

Zevende afzonderlijk te lezen misdaadroman van de Zweedse schrijfster/journaliste met commissaris Anders Knutas, zijn collega Karin Jacobsson en de tv-journalist Johan Berg in de hoofdrol.

De speurders krijgen deze keer te maken met een bijzonder raadselachtige zaak. Drie bevriende echtparen gaan voor een korte vakantie naar het nabijgelegen eiland Fårö. Maar eenmaal aangekomen gooit één smsje voor alle drie de stellen alles overhoop. Een lang verborgen geheim komt aan de oppervlakte en vakantiep

It is a shame that some things just don't live up to the billing. This is the case here! the author makes you wait for a third of the book before anything actually happens to let it make the thriller/mystery category. You might also think that during that time you would get some information that you could use later on in the book, but no it is just useless padding. That aside the remaining two thirds of the book are okay, and a reasonable crime thriller is told. Three murders take place during t ...more

I love this author and waited a long time for this book to be translated and released. This is the only problem with these books by Northern European authors, waiting for the books to be translated and sometimes, the publishers take them out of order and just publish them randomly. Mari Jungstedt is a fantastic story-teller and the D.S. Knutas series is well worth following for crime/mystery lovers, without being too gory and graphic. It's all about good old fashioned police-work and delving int ...more

I asked my librarian to get me the first book in this series last year, but instead this one showed up. Fair enough, I still wanted to give the series a try, wherever I had to begin!

This was a slow starter, but once I got into the thick of the story I enjoyed it and thought it was well done. There was plenty of suspense and an interesting resolution. I hope the library will eventually get the rest of the series in, I'd like to read it, but aside from a few mentions of past cases, I felt

I keep giving this author the benefit of the doubt, then I remember why I shouldn't. If you pick this up thinking you are in for classic Scandinavian thriller, you will be disappointed. It is family saga pretending to be thriller.

If you like more details about the intricacies of child birth, nappy changing & child rearing (of the regular characters, there is a midwife and each couple has at least three children from several marriages, so there is a lot) than actual mystery, then go for it. I
It took quite a while before the story started properly. At the end you valued the beginning more but at the beginning it just annoyed me that you had no idea what the story was about. When the story finally "began" it was pretty full of detail. I even got the impression that the writer was in a hurry to get everything written down in order to the story make sense. I did enjoy the book, although this wasn't the best Jungstedt -book I've read. There were also some little mistakes she had made in ...more

En av de samsta kriminalromaner jag last. Tunn och forutsagbar handling, inget som helst djup i personbeskrivningarna. De korta kapitlen vavs aldrig ihop pa ett bra satt och forsta person-berattelsen kommer in for sent och fungerar inte alls. Dessutom en massa onodig namesdropping (vad har Ingmar Bergman overhuvudtaget med handlingen att gora?).
Kanns som om den vore skriven efter en fardig mall.

Though this one is #7 in the series, based on events in the main continuing characters' lives it's clear that it actually takes place before #6 (Dark Angel.)
It wasn't a major problem (the core mystery is standalone) but I dislike knowing about events in characters' lives that take place later, when I read an earlier book.
I didn't actually enjoy the mystery in this one as much as some others in the series.

Ei niin hyvä Jungsedtin kirja kuin odotin. Emma ja Johan ovat täysin sivuroolissa ja Knutasistakin tuodaan esiin lähinnä avio-ongelmat. Ensimmäistä (?) kertaa Jungstedt antaa lähinnä murhien uhrien lähipiirin kuljettaa juonta ja jättää muut, kuten poliisit ja toimittajat, sivurooliin. Juoni itsessään oli myös melko helppo arvata, vaikka murhaajan paljastuminen olikin kuitenkin ehkä pienoinen yllätys. Seuraavaa osaa odotellessa...

I love these books, the characters and their stories are very compelling. Unfortunately I haven't read these books in order and would others to do do this as it makes more sense to the ongoing stories. Looking forward to more of these, probably one of the best scandinavian crime writers about at the moment.

I got this from the library, it is about a group of friends who holiday on a remote swedish island each year, but something dreadful happens this year. Detective superintendant Knutas has to look into their pasts to uncover the killer. Keep you guessing till the end. Really enjoyable, my first by this author but will be looking out for more.

Best book in the series!
A great mystery with many surprises... twists and turns
3 couples who are neighbors go on s holiday vacation together - 2 of them end up murdered. And all of this takes place near the home of the late Ingmar Bergman. We learn that one of the neighbors has a stalker.
Also, we venture more into the lives of Knutas and Karin
I don't want to say more and ruin the story

Didn't care much for the characters or the story and the mystery didn't blow me away.

The book as a whole is okay and I enjoyed it while it lasted but there are far better crime novels out there that I suggest reading in stead.

Very good

So sad how events from long ago have an impact on a person's future. It's been a bit of a theme a few of the Anders Knutas books but I guess that's life; the past impacts the future and how people might react/behave in certain situations. Anyway, very enjoyable.
