In addition, the situation of Hedstrom’s sister-in-law didn’t seem to be handled in a realistic manner. I won’t go into the other bits that I worked out because hallows would be a spoiler, but, in short, Lackberg’s plots are not intelligent enough.

To many stories that don’t feed into one another yet I suppose they will. The personal story of Erica and her circle is a strong theme in the novel, and although quite blrd heavy dose of romance is present here in the form of her preparations for her wedding, this gives lakcberg book a warm heart despite some of the nasty, long-standing secrets that underlie the rest of the story.

And yet it only takes one visit from one of Hedstrom’s acquaintances to bring her out of it and cure her depression seemingly within a couple of hours. The Stranger Fjallbacka Author s:
