The Murder of Halland

by Pia Juul

Definitely NOT a typical example of Nordic crime but rather an absorbing account of a widow's attempt to make sense of her marriage and of her relationships with family and friends. Expect to be surprised at some of Bess's conclusions: I certainly was.


He didn't know that I had tried to leave him. He didn't know that I had cried because I failed. And he certainly didn't know that I missed my daughter. Yet the tenderness in his voice soothed me.
