All the more cruel moves in a borderland: the detective story, really? And if you can't really call them crime novels, what are they then? Crime novels are often a better term as the Swedish Deckarakademin, in spite of its own name, often use to cover all spänningslitteratur which includes any form of criminal activity.
this page contains crime rates, and all goes on any way out to solve a mystery and uncover a criminal. Still, I would rather call some of them cruel, for the emphasis is on the excitement and deckargåtan is not the most important. The books are more about how people are and how they behave towards each other, with a clear sense of reality. It is also about to reveal such crimes that rarely ends up before the courts.
In a way is spänningsromanerna our time sedeskildringar, which aims to clarify how people can exploit each other in everyday life. Stuff tells Lisa Jewell if, as previously written a host of feel good novels (read, for example ”the Birdcage” from 2014, a talented familjeskildring).
In their latest books, she takes the step over to the write voltage, but it is still relationsromaner, only more exciting. In the last, ”And then she was gone,” she had obvious problems with the deckargåtan, and the part is still not her strongest side. But it is not always the actual investigation that is important, and I myself had great difficulty to let go of ”Every step you take”. It is something with Lisa Jewells ability to build up the excitement around the everyday events, so that you made hold your breath when two persons greet each other on the street.
of the books, there are, of course, perfectly normal deckarintriger, with a murder mystery where it pops up a genretypisk serial killer. It is as it usually is in the genre: it happens to a lot of new, but all of the old continues to live on. It is a stubbornly buoyant genre, the focus is not death. It is much more about how difficult it is to be human.

If you want to know what really does not work in society must look at crime. What crimes are being committed? What are the criminals and who are the victims?
Some crimes are more difficult to investigate than others, for the victims taking the blame themselves. It is, of course, to the fraud, where they used to be called sun-and-vårare lurking by the lonely, the innocent people of money with the promise of love, community, and economic security.
even more in our fast-paced digital age. Do you want to have a andrahandslägenhet in Stockholm? Companionship in their old age? A doctor who listens?
In ”the Last ferry from Ystad,” has a syskonpar set the fraud in the system. They are looking up lonely people who need someone to listen. They are the easiest to fool.
the Siblings shows up a color picker of our time, fraud, and heading down through Europe, where they find more and more nifty bondfångerier. The voltage increases for each element of risk, and for a short while, I find myself to be on their side in their neck-breaking business.
But for every crime there is a victim, and Karin Alfredsson, as usual, a master in to tell you people, lift up carefully until every hopeful wretch who sits at home and waits on the lover/the mistress/the seriously ill her writer friend who needed the money for a treatment to get in touch.
To understand that you are scammed. That man should not have ventured to believe in that great love that blessed thought that it was unlikely that good.
Yes. Unlikely was the the.
Then, follow the shame, and a lonely man who will never depend on anyone else.
Then the where year the police snooping around on, and it is she who is the great consolation in Karin Alfredsson book. She does not give just because the victims refuse to report.Illustration: Printz publishing

Joey is an ordinary young british woman, who met Alfie, sick-looking, when she was working and partying in Ibiza. They got married barefoot on the beach and danced the entire night.
Then they went home to England. Luckily, they got to stay in the attic with Joey's brother, hjärtkirurgen Jack, and his pregnant wife Rebecca.
And life, the everyday life, the marriage becomes boring. Joey begins to look after the neighbor, a charismatic middle-aged principal who saves the schools over the whole of England. Another neighbor has paranoia, while her teenage daughter is doing everything that the life should be normal. Or is it really someone that watches them?
Lisa Jewell tells about ordinary, sprained people, but also builds up a nail-biting atmosphere surrounding the handsome principal. Is he a hero, or hide he something completely different behind their benevolent facade?Illustration: Forum
With great suspicion, I open the ”Suite”, how fun is it to further a story about the difficult life of the rich as well as partying at Stureplan?
But it will be an immensely exciting, very moral story about how stupid girls (mostly girls) come with the nasty rich men (usually men) on festive occasions, and how badly it can go. A bunch of old mates meet on a regular basis, and höhö, then you want to have a little fun later in the evening (kaffeflickor, anyone?).
It is (perhaps) not about outright prostitution, but about the lovely parties where it sometimes occurs, liking, simply.
Or whatever it is that occurs.
A girl has been found dead after a private party in a hotel suite. ”Suite” is förhörsprotokoll, only the dialogue, but Denise Rudberg and Mikaela Bley skillfully handle the difficult form.Illustration: Harper Collins
Because I am moderately amused by the over-ambitious serial killer, I become irritated at the beginning of ”Brother Jacob”, where a serial killer turns out to sew together the legs of women. Yes, you read that right. He wants to make them look like mermaids. Then dump them in the Stream in Norrköping.
oh Well. Credibility need not be all, and Emelie Schepp says still good if the maximum incredible prosecutor Jana Berzelius, who is chasing the killer and also manages to commit a lot of heinous crimes on their own, because she has a very complicated background, where one of the Norrköping ruskigaste criminals have played a large and important part.
It quickly becomes a little too obvious who is sjöjungfrumördaren and what is behind the murders, but as usual, it's catchy. Fixed last book, ”Papa's boy”, was better.Illustration: Bladh by Bladh
