Read my full review: http://bit.ly/14hYY7rMy opinion: In my previous reviews regarding Ms. Lackberg's works, I have referenced the "lightness" and focus on emotions of her books compared to her contemporaries in Nordic Noir. I have stated that I thought that her books were too almost Americanized than the darkness and twistedness that is seen in other Nordic Noir books. I thought she was getting away from this in her book THE STONE CUTTER. However, it was back with a vengeance in this book. As a reader of heavier more twisted Nordic Noir books, I have difficulties with this, but do read her works regularly as I am frequently asked for NN recommendations.
