#36 Der hænger en engel alene i skoven (Samuel Bjørk)

Der hænger en engel alene i skoven er det første bind i en spændende ny krimiserie af den norske forfatter Samuel Bjørk.


En seksårig pige findes hængt i en skov. Hun er iført en gammeldags dukkelignende kjole og omkring hendes hals hænger et skilt med ordene ’Jeg rejser alene’.


Stjerneefterforskeren Mia Krüger har forladt politiet. Hun har isoleret sig på en lille ø, hvor hun martres af fortiden og planlægger sit eget selvmord. Men da hendes gamle chef, den godmodige Holger Munch, opsøger hende, overtales hun til at vende tilbage til – bare så lang tid, det tager at opklare sagen om pigen i skoven. Men hun er kun den første.


Da Mia Krüger opdager en forbindelse til en gammel, uopklaret sag om et kidnappet spædbarn, tager sagen en ny drejning. Er mordene en hævn over politiets uformåen dengang? Og er der en kobling til den kristne sekt, der har slået sig ned på egnen? Da Holger Munchs 6-årige barnebarn Marion bliver bortført, indser Mia, at morderens ondskabsfulde leg er personlig. Men hun indser ikke hvor personlig.

#35 Where the Light Gets In (Lucy Dillon)

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Where The Light Gets In by Lucy Dillon, read by Karen Cass.

 The inspiring, life-enhancing and evocative new novel from the bestselling author of A Hundred Pieces of Me and All I Ever Wanted . ‘No one tugs at the heartstrings quite like Lucy Dillon’ Red magazine

 ‘You know those cracks in your heart, Lorna, where things didn’t work out, but you picked yourself up and carried on? That’s where the fear gets out. And where the light gets in.’

It was Betty, defiant to the end, who sent Lorna back to Longhampton. If Lorna’s learned one thing from Betty it’s that courage is something you paint on like red lipstick, even when you’re panicking inside. And right now, with the keys to the town’s gallery in her hand, Lorna feels about as courageous as Betty’s anxious little dachshund, trembling beside her.

Lorna’s come home to Longhampton to fulfil a long-held dream, but she knows, deep down, there are ghosts she needs to lay to rest first. This is where her tight-knit family shattered into silent pieces. It’s where her unspoken fears about herself took root and where her own secret, complicated love began. It’s not exactly a fresh start.

But as Lorna – and the little dog – tentatively open their cracked hearts to old friends and new ones, facing hard truths and fresh promises, something surprisingly beautiful begins to grow around the gallery, something so inspirational even Lorna couldn’t have predicted the light it lets into her world . . .

#34 Atten grader minus (Stefan Ahnhem)

Alt for mange (usammenhængende) historier og en mega underlig slutning, så ikke videre begejstret for dette bind i serien om familien Risk.. måske også derfor, det har taget mig 100 år at komme hunnen bogen?

Kort om bogen fra mofibo.com:
Hvor meget af et menneskes liv kan man stjæle?
En bil kører ud over kajkanten i Helsingborgs havn efter en heftig biljagt. Alt peger på, at der er tale om en ulykke, men da føreren obduceres, viser det sig, at han har været død i to måneder. Og har været frosset ned. Fabian Risk og hans team hos Helsingborg politi kæmper mod tiden i en sag, hvor intet er, som de tror. Hvis ikke de handler hurtigt, vil endnu et offer ende i fryseren.

Atten grader minus er en isnende spændende krimi om jagten på en bestialsk og kynisk morder. Bogen er 3. bog i serien om Fabian Risk.

#33 Conditional Love (Cathy Bramley)

Conditional Love

Liiiidt meget sødsuppe og ikke så meget indhold, men det er jo også chick-lit… 😉

Kort om bogen fra mofibo.com:
What surprises might life have in store for you? A takeaway, TV and tea with two sugars is about as exciting as it gets for thirty-something Sophie Stone. Sophie’s life is safe and predictable, which is just the way she likes it, thank you very much. But when a mysterious benefactor leaves her an inheritance, Sophie has to accept that change is afoot. There is one big catch: in order to inherit, Sophie must agree to meet the father she has never seen. Saying ‘yes’ means the chance to build her own dream home, but she’ll also have to face the past and hear some uncomfortable truths…

With interference from an evil boss, warring parents, an unreliable boyfriend and an architect who puts his foot in it every time he opens his mouth, will Sophie be able to build a future on her own terms – and maybe even find love along the way? A totally charming, modern love story for fans of Katie Fforde, Carole Matthews and Trisha Ashley.
