Her Icecold Eyes by Carin Gerhardsen

Carin Gerhardsen’s first novel The Gingerbread House was published in 2008. Since then she has written another five novels in the same series. The quality of the novels has varied, so I did not know what to expect when I started reading the latest one.

Missing Women

A woman is reported missing by her husband. Another woman disappears after a night on the town. The second woman is sending text messages to her friend, but the friend gets suspicions after a grammatical error and contacts the police. Both cases end up with the police in Hammarby. Could it be that both women left voluntarily?

Good Balance

Carin Gerhardsen writes about physical and psychological abuse, women who stay in destructive relationships, children who are treated poorly and the consequences of not assuming responsibility. As a reader it is difficult not to get engaged. I also think that she has finally found a good balance between the investigation and the personal lives of the police. An extra plus for the cover, which illustrate part of the plot.


Original title in Swedish: Hennes iskalla ögon
