One of Anna Jansson’s Best Novels

The main character Maria Wern tries to stop a brutal assault on a boy. She is hurt and when the boy dies it becomes a murder investigation. Maria cannot be a part of the investigation but another case lands on her table when a dead woman is found. More murders follow, but what ties them together?

We get to follow the killer’s thoughts and it becomes apparent that the person is an incredible hacker, kind of like Lisbeth Salander.

My Opinion

I have read most of Anna Jansson’s crime novels about Maria Wern and their quality differ widely. This is the eleventh in the series and it is definitely one of the best. The storyline was not always believable, but that does not really matter when it comes to a novel you read for entertainment.


Original title in Swedish: Drömmen förde dig vilse
