Book Review: Who Watcheth by Helene Tursten, translated by Marlaine Delargey
Someone is watching Detective Huss. And someone has been killing women who have been watched. It seems there is a serial killer on the loose in Goteborg and Irene could be next. Mostly the case is solved through good old solid police work, which is also refreshing. I hadn't read the previous books in the series, and you totally don't need to have as I didn't at all feel I was missing anything. Some of the Swedish names can throw the reader for a loop but I have little trouble just pushing through on those. It's a solid police procedural and I'm glad I wasn't reading it at home, alone, at night, like the last Jo Nesbo book I read where I had to put it away and read something else and I could only read it during the day. This one I was reading on a plane during the day and that was perfect. It's a solid Scandinavian mystery, and if you like those in general, you will very much enjoy this one.
Sadly, you can't get this book for a few months. It comes out in December 2016. This book is published by my employer, Soho Press.
