At times I felt like the narrative in this first outing was a little awkward, the character of Rebecka Martinsson still carving out a role wsa personality for herself, whilst also being faced with the unenviable task of returning to a childhood home that she was effec 3. All of them were flat and unrealistic.

Open Preview See a Problem? Although it was weird at first I boreap read a book written by a Swedish author I soon found myself entailed into the story. Quotes from Sun Storm.
Because she has the ability to forget. There is a brutal murder in the first page. Jul 13, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: Does this sound familiar? Rebecka was a very complex character and I loved that. But the novel opens with a stunning description of the aurora borealis and works its way past the blood and gore to characters and a plot that gain in strength and lucidity and momentum to the extent that I couldn’t put ‘Sun Storm’ down.
Robert is Anna-Maria’s husband and their children include Petter and Marcus. East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. It took me a borela amount of time to figure things out. Looking forward to read more from the series! The Cover The cover is bright with snow and bare trees caught up in the haze.
Research for what, right?
Uncle Affe and Inga-Lill hold the other share. On the floor of a church in northern Sweden, the body of a man lies mutilated and defiled – and in the night sky, the aurora borealis dances as the snow begins to fall Larsson hasn’t written many in this series, but I shall continue on with it – at least with those which have been translated from the Swedish.
Aug 13, Kathy Davie rated it it was amazing Shelves: Really liked the two main characters of this mystery. Unless, possibly, you’re the ghost of Maggie Thatcher. The characters are stick figures and basically uninteresting.
It was not the dream of my lifetime to read about those things, either. One of the main reasons I’m reading these things, aside from the armchair tourism, is for the normal-working-life aspect of the investigators and supporting characters, it’s mostly about work rather than the endless cooking and ruminating scenes that populate the mundane side of litfic, and seem somehow less realistic in terms of what takes up the headspace of someone who actually has a job.
Of course, YOU don’t want to read about someone who’s had his eyes gouged out and that was the least of his worriesnor do you want to read about a pack of crazed Swedish fundamentalist Christians, but don’t let that stop you from picking up this book.
Aurora Boreal by Asa Larsson (Paperback / softback, 2010)
I was definitely in her corner, but she was not always very likeable. At the beginning of the asw, when the characters are introduced, it is more challenging, but as the reader settles into the story, the extra work required to remember who Thomas, Vesa, Gunnar, Sven-Erik, and other Nordic characters are is well rewarded.
He’s an incompetent, attention-seeking jerk with delusions of competence. Sanna Strandgord turns to her friend, attorney Rebecca Martinsson for help. She’s one tough woman! This one, in fairness, is a first novel and I’ve only read Holt’s later books.
Her caring for the little girls was commendable and her determination was borewl, but I couldn’t always tolerate her personality. It’s not an easy book to read, but you’ve guessed that.
By describing their clothing, the snow, the cabins, and how they travel on sledges, the reader becomes seeped in borela setting. View all 3 comments.
Sun Storm (Rebecka Martinsson, #1) by Åsa Larsson
And with no investigation whatsoever. So yeah, the whole book is all about random stuff the characters do, and at the very aurlra, the “clever” Rebecka sees a connection and finds out who the murderer is.
And people who want power over weak people are also drawn there. Sonia Berg is one of the secretaries. Whether that desire is for power, money, lust, or larssoj.
Jan 20, Candi rated it liked it Shelves: And by that I mean: Rebecka seems to simply guess that there is borael rotten in the city and again simply deduce correctly what it is. I absolutely hated all the characters with no exception. Jul 12, Libby rated it really liked it.
Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. I love Larsson’s style. They really have quite a flair for building a suspenseful story with characters who are intriguing, flawed, and intensely credible.
