Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At the start of Larsson's solid procedural debut, neurotic, troubled Sanna Strandgård discovers the brutally butchered body of her brother, Viktor, on the floor of the church he founded in Kiruna, a provincial town in the north of Sweden. Sanna turns to her childhood friend, Rebecka Martinsson, a tax attorney in Stockholm, for emotional support and legal assistance when Sanna is charged with her brother's murder. While the local police investigate, led by refreshingly downtoearth Insp. AnnaMaria Mella, Martinsson starts digging into the case as well as her own past connection with the victim and his church. Potential motives for Strandgård's murder range from the church's business dealings to sexual intrigue, but the focus is on Martinsson's anger and frustration at being sucked back into her own past. The story builds to a thrillerlike ending, though Larsson introduces far more characters than she needs or can handle. The book won Sweden's Best First Crime Novel award. [PW 3/13/06]

    Story of Frost-the autobiography- Prologue

    Thank you for reading. This is a story of one of my most beloved cats.- Goldensun awoke in a small clearing. It was dark, the sky littered wih stars. A massive grey cat padded from the bushes. "I am ashstar." Just as he finished, a beautiful brown tabby appeared next to him. "And i am kestrelstar. We are both mother and father of the last blossom kit, Mysteryflower. We have come to bless you with the seed of the blossom kit." They both meowed. A seed floated in front of her. Stars glittered apon it. "Plant it where wolf roams." They murmured, disappearing. Goldensun awoke in her small den, ivorykit curled against her belly. The seed was cradled in her paws. Slowly, carefully, she got up careful to not wake ivorykit up. She crept acros the camp into wolfclan territory, the moon lighting the path. She stood in the clearing. Silently she dug a hole and planted the seed, ready to head home. The forest was alive with nocturnal noises. Suddenly it stopped. She raced foward, smelling smoke. Goldensun came apon her home, fire blazing so bright it was like being stabbed in the eyes by the sun itself. She rushed toward the nersury and snatched her kit, and ran out as fast as he could.
