The Nordic Bookblog has just posted a review of the brand new English translation of Helene Tursten's Night Rounds. You can read it at the blog: http://bookblog.scandinavianbooks.com/night-rounds-by-helene-tursten/ or you can subscribe to the Nordic Bookblog right here at LJ with this feed: [livejournal.com profile] scandibookblog

Excerpt: "the Swedish detective Irene Huss is a former Ju-Jitsu champion and a mother of twin teenage girls. She is also wife of a successful chef. She works in the Violent Crimes Unit in Goteborg, Sweden – the second largest city in Sweden.
One night the power goes out at a local hospital, The Lowander Institute, a private hospital in Goteborg, Sweden. The back-up generator fails to kick in, and a patient in ICU dies. The nurse who was looking after the patient disappears. There is only one witness, and she claims to have seen Nurse Tekla doing her night rounds. Which could have been an excellent observation, except that nurse Tekla died – committed suicide – 60 years ago.

Welcome to my Wallander pimp! I'm not going to lie - as much as I absolutely adore this show, it is one of the most depressing series I've ever seen. So the caveat to my pimp is this - yes, do watch Wallander, but only when you're in a healthy frame of mind because seriously, this show will get you down. Still with me? Good. On with the pimpage!



On with the pimpage! )
