The Crow Girl

1 Mins read

Erik Axl Sund Crow GirlWritten by a pair of Swedes using the pseudonym Erik Axl Sund, The Crow Girl is the next big thing in Scandinavian crime fiction. Vast, dark, atmospheric and tackling all manner of big themes, it actually collects together three separately published novels in one fabulous epic. At 750 pages it will keep you entertained for a while, but it will also have you turning the pages from start to finish. It all begins with the discovery of a mummified child at a Swedish train station. The boy has been castrated and wounds on him suggests he faced a hideous death. Detective Superintendent Jeanette Kihlberg works with child psychologist Sofia Zetterlund to try and unravel the case, with their personal and professional problems humming away in the background like a hive of angry hornets. It’s the must-read book this year for Nordic noir fans. Read our review here.
