My Mini Thoughts

I am working my way through all the books in the Joona Linna Series before the end of the year, and this is book #2.  I’m sorry to say that this one did not work for me.  Maybe I should not have read Stalker (book #5) first because I have been comparing the other books in the series to that one.  Stalker and the first two books in the series are like oil and water.

I really like reading about Joona Linna, I think he is a badass! If I was in trouble, I would want him to be the one looking for me.  The thing I didn’t like about this plot is it was very political.  Is there a psychopath killer on the loose? Yes! Is time of the essence before more people die? Yes!  Turns out our killer is more of a hired hit man.  The whole peace activist and weapons manufacturer plot just didn’t do it for me, and the book was about 150 pages too long.

 I guess you can’t love them all! On to book #3!

Goodreads Synopsis

One summer night, police discover the lifeless body of a young woman on an abandoned yacht. She appears to have drowned, but it’s clear she was never in the water. The next day, a man is found hanging in his completely empty apartment. It seems like a suicide, but the circumstances are suspicious.

Detective Joona Linna is called in to investigate, and, with the help of a young Swedish Security Police detective named Saga Bauer, he soon discovers a surprising connection between the two deaths. With more lives at stake, Joona and Saga must fight to stop a killer who always seems to be one step ahead. Ultimately the case will lead them into the shadowy world of international arms trafficking, where they are forced to confront a ruthless psychopath.
