Jessica Jarlvi's book What Did I Do? What Did I Do? by Jessica Jarlvi is on NetGalley. Sweden. You have to "Wish For It". It will be available on May 1, 2018 according to Amazon for the Kindle Version and they have the cover. Not sure of the April 1 , 2018 date for publication. Can someone put the cover on the April 1, 2018 date?

No, you have to "Wish For It" and the publisher might give you a copy. I don't like this.

So strange. (I’ve been a NG member for 120 days and my feedback percentage is under 50%, so I’m no reviewing rock star.)

I did not read this author’s first novel, but —for whatever it’s worth — I’m unimpressed. She was born in Sweden but now resides in London and wrote this in English, I believe. I’m 35% through and the writing is horrendous, the characters shallow and not believable. I’ll push to finish it but this isn’t the quality I typically encounter with Nordic mysteries/thrillers in translation. I’ll include some of the more egregious examples in my review, for the benefit of other readers judging for themselves.
