The Fire Witness by Lars Kepler

The Fire Witness

Joona Linna Book 3

DI Joona Linna, is sidelined for the moment. On leave while awaiting the outcome of an internal affairs investigation for some thing he did or didn’t do.

So he is free to be sent to observe only in the investigation of a hideous double murder at a youth home for troubled girls.

In my crime group I once asked for recommendations for some Scandi works and I’ve been stuck on them! This one may be my new favorite. These girls are way past troubled. They are downright scary. With one of them being accused of the crimes, the stories of her past begin to come out and a more horrifying tale I can’t think of.

Almost a story inside a story as the police dismiss Flora, a girl trying to pass herself off as a psychic to the police. But is she seeing the ghost of the dead girl or is she having a memory of her own that was too awful to remember?

We learn a lot about Joona’s personal life this time. Interesting fellow. This was a fast paced shocker that made me glad I don’t have any girls!

Good Job on the translations too!
