Reading Recap | May 2017

June 2, 2017 | No comments


May turned out to be a much better month reading-wise than March and April. I read 4 books in Swedish, but did not attempt making any progress on Les Miserables. Out of the 21 books I read in May, the following three were the highlights:

Stalker by Lars Kepler ★★★★
Ebook | 602 pages (Read May 13-14)

Lars Kepler – or rather Swedish writer couple Alexander Ahndoril and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril – never disappoints. The fifth book about police inspector Joona Linna, in which he investigates a series of gruesome murders in which the police receives a videotape of the victim right before the murder occurs.

Kaninjägaren by Lars Kepler ★★★★
Ebook | 571 pages (Read May 14)

In the sixth book in the series (not yet published in English), Joona Linna is released from jail to help search for a murderer known as the Rabbit hunter. I loved this entire series, and really hope there will be another book published soon.

With No One as Witness by Elizabeth George ★★★★
Paperback | 784 pages (Read May 9-13)

I’ve been reading the series about Inspector Lynley out of order, so I already knew about the fallout from some of the events in this book (although I didn’t know it was in this book those events happened when I started it). It is by far the best book in the series of the ones I have read.
