He can be your guardian or your punisher depending on whether you follow his rules. Of course, that can be a bit challenging since you aren’t aware you’re being stalked.The 9th instalment in this series can be summed up with a big “eeewww” as we join Irene Huss & her team on the hunt for a serial killer in Goteborg. He has a preferred type & is fond of quoting the Old Testament but that’s just part of his twisted MO.Meanwhile Irene has a couple of other things on her plate. Wei [...]
This book gave me that creepy, tingly down my spine feeling that I look for in a good Scandinavian mystery. And refreshingly the main character, Detective Irene Huss, has a good relationship with her husband, a chef, and her two adult daughters. It's a nice change of pace from the crusty old loners and sad, vulnerable spinsters populating so many mysteries. It's also nice that she's sensible and does not go off and do scary stuff on her own and set herself up for obviously stupid situations. I a [...]
Who Watcheth is a question with more than one answer in this latest installment in Helene Tursten’s excellent police procedural series featuring Inspector Irene Huss of Göteborg, Sweden. Huss is on the trail of a serial killer who wraps his victims up in a package, a forensic countermeasure that the media uses to name the unknown suspect The Package Killer.As the victims are investigated, it seems that the Package Killer stalks his victims for a time. It also seems that someone is stalking In [...]
Who Watcheth. Inspector Irene Huss. #9. December 2016. iBook. √ 4/5. Irene and her husband are talking downsizing as Sammie is dead and the twins are now independent. There are a series of murders and things start happening close to home for Irene. It's always a good read and I enjoyed this number nine. Even the new dog.So far haven't been able to find the tv series in anything but German but sure enjoy the books.
Helene Tursten has written the ninth book in her Irene Huss series. Irene is Detective Inspector on a Swedish police force. She was once the female jiu Jitsu champion in her nation. She is tall, strong, and not one to be reckoned with. Married to Krister, a wonderful cook, the two of them have twin daughters that have left home to be on their own. All is going well for Irene until she realizes that someone is messing with her garden. Things have been moved and vandalized and she is at a loss to [...]
Ich mag Helene Tursten und ihre Kriminalkommissarin Irene Huss sehr gerne, aber diesem Buch kann ich nur drei Sterne geben.Der Plot ist okay und recht spannend, das Ende allerdings ausgesprochen abrupt und in gewisser Weise ziemlich lieb-und lustlos daher geschrieben.Es könnte sich fast der Verdacht aufdrängen, dass der Autorin der Abgabetermin im Nacken sass und sie ein schnelles Ende sozusagen aus dem Ärmel schütteln musste.Meiner Meinung nach sehr unbefriedigend.Dann fand ich persönlich [...]
Tursten’s heroine, Irene Huss, is a bit of an with her martial arts skills and six-foot frame. She and her chef-husband, Krister, get along just fine, unlike many Nordic Noir couples, and she looks forward to coming home to his recipes. In this edition of Huss’s adventures, however, she gets in trouble as she becomes one of the targets of the Package Killer—a murderer who throttles his victims, then wraps them up in contractors’ plastic and deposit them in some meaningful place. He targ [...]
After receiving this novel in a good reads first read drawing, I was pleasantly surprised with an entertaining murder mystery. I reminded me a lot of the Bones TV series and I could definitely visualize the plot expand in my mind like watching a video. Irene is a middle age detective (this is in a series) who gets saddled with a serial killer case. In addition to being the cases detective she is also a target. The drama begins when an unsuspecting victim breaks the overbearing rules of a dangero [...]
I've read and enjoyed all nine books in Helene Tursten's Irene Huss series. It seems, though, that in today's world it's becoming increasingly difficult to find ways of putting the protagonist into a position of danger without making her/him look inept. In this story Huss finds herself alone in her car in a forested region of Sweden trying to outrace a killer. For one who is supposedly trained to be on her toes, Huss is utterly unprepared. She doesn't have a gun with her and she forgot to charge [...]
I received this book as part of a giveaway.A nice detective story where the answers are right in front of your face, yet somehow you fail to figure it out.Detective Inspector Irene Huss is called in to try and find the Package Killer and must face a personal danger directed toward her and her family. Is the killer coming after her, or is it not related at all? The victims of the Package Killer all received a flower and a photo before they were attacked, yet the most obvious suspect seems to hav [...]
Who Watcheth? Who watcheth indeed. This is the crux on one of Helene Tursten's intriguing mysteries. Tursten's intrepid Detective Inspector, Irene Huss gets more embroiled in an investigation that she thought. In the search for a stincky perpetrator who stalks and then strangles women, cleans them and packages them before dropping them off in a cemetery. The investigation ramps up dramatically when the perp attacks and nearly kills Irene Huss' boss. As in all good mysteries, it gets a satisfacto [...]
Generally speaking I really enjoy Tursten’s books. So far, not this one. She appears to have run out of ideas. The serial killer comes from central casting, w/ a textbook religious/sex fantasy. Everyone has chills running down their spines. Disparate average women are in danger. The two separate “sexy”women in the story are dressed in red sweater dresses and black boots. Really a snooze. It’s as if Torsten wrote the book by drawing cards, i.e. weapon, killer type, victim etc. There is a [...]
I have always been a Helene Tursten fan and this 9th in the Inspector Irene Huss series does not disappoint. After 2 women in their 40s are found strangled and wrapped in brown paper, Inspector Huss is brought in to solve "the Package Murders" as they are now labelled. The killer is not done yet and brings his hunt all too close to Detective Huss's home and family. The strength of Tursten's books in my opinion is her character development. Across the novels, I really feel like I know all the cha [...]
Good book with a mystery. More exciting the last part of the book. Easy to read and fast as well. Not suprising. I'm thinking I need to quit reading crime stories for a while. I am never suprised by them anymore. Is there still books out there with a suprising ending that is about crime? I prefer thrillers nowadays. Lacking in descriptions and language.
I've read 4 or 5 of the Helene Thurston books and keep coming back for more. I like her characters because they see realistic. They're strong and yet vulnerable This story got to me because of threats that keep reoccurring. It was hard to put the book down when I absolutely had too. It's a good idea to read books in order to keep u with the characters as they keep redeveloping.
3.5 stars. This is another good book in the Irene Huss series. The author is excellent with her police fiction and Irene and Tommy's relationship undergoes some strain in this one. I've read many of the other books in the series and have enjoyed all of them.Recommended.
Tursten delivers as alwaysThis was one of the tightest Huss stories while including big transitions for Irene and others for which I look forward to Tursten addressing in the future. Huss series is among best of Mystery/crime and they just get richer with time. Grateful for Tursten.
Good plot while working in previous book. With any series you should be able to start with any volume, but here it's a spoiler for Fire Dance if you read this first. Nice how she works that one in, but she reveals the villain.
Unknown killer targeting middle aged women. Obviously a serial killer as his method is almost identical and he leaves a flower as a signature to his work. When he targets the series main character, Inspector Irene Hess things get much more interesting.
This new book in the Irene Huss series does not disappoint! She is a great character and the bleak weather is always a presence in this series! Love Swedish Crime fiction and this one is not too dark fir me!
Gripping story. Enjoyed the read!
Actually, I decided to terminate my reading after about 20 pages. To me, the text was blandansitions between scenes were brittle and awkward. Dialog was a bit cliched.
In typical Torsten style, this was a good, rather eerie story. The side stories helped too.
Narrative is focused & tight (unlike Golden Calf, which was all over the place). The dachshund made it even better.
Another winner, second last in the Inspector Irene Huss series. I will be sad to bid this character and her family/colleagues goodbye. Thank you, Helene Tursten!
Good as usual
I am a fan of this series, I really like Irene as a character. This story was quick and engaging, I am a little sad that there is only one book left in the series.
Great mystery as alwaysLove Tursten's writing and well developed characters. This novel does not disappoint. Excellent atmospheric procedural from an excellent crime writer.
Ending feel totally flat for me. Character development of the killer (the why of it all) was almost completely missing.
O this was a really good mystery--I never read out of orderuntil I do! This is the latest in the series. I just checked out the first. I love the liberry!!
