Overview

Monika and Maj-Britt could not be more different. Monika lives with a man who adores her; Maj-Britt can barely manage to write her former husband's name. Monika, the chief surgeon at a regional hospital, has an overwhelming roster of family and professional obligations; Maj-Britt is a recluse, all but imprisoned by her own obesity. But they do have one thing in common: Both are tormented by memories that only the most excruciating vigilance can keep suppressed. And when chance brings the two women together, those memories can no longer stay contained.

The characters in this novel are highly original and yet very real. That's the flaw of many of them in other works -- either too unbelievable, two-dimensional, or both. Shame seemed to start slowly (not an action-type thriller), but from the first I found myself struggling to put it down and it only became more riveting as it steadily picked up pace and built suspense. Alvtegen is very skilled and I intend to read her other works.
