The Swedish Girl
by Alex Gray
on Tour January 8 – February 12, 2018
Another gripping Lorimer novel from Alex Gray, evoking Glasgow like no other writer can
When Kirsty Wilson lands a room in a luxury Glasgow flat owned by Swedish fellow student Eva Magnusson she can’t believe her luck. But Kirsty’s delight turns to terror when she finds the beautiful Swedish girl lying dead in their home and their male flatmate accused of her murder. Kirsty refuses to accept that he is guilty and, inspired by family friend Detective Superintendent Lorimer, sets out to clear his name.
Meanwhile, Lorimer calls on trusted psychologist Solly Brightman to help unravel the truth behind the enigmatic Eva’s life and death. But it is not long until another woman, bearing a marked resemblance to Eva, is brutally murdered. Horrified, Lorimer realises that Kirsty could be right. Is it possible that Glasgow’s finest detective has put the wrong man behind bars? And is there a cold-blooded killer out there orchestrating the death of the next innocent victim?
If you follow my blog/reviews, you may have noticed that I have been reading a lot of books in this series. I admit I’m addicted!!
THE SWEDISH GIRL is the 10th book in the DCI Lorimer series but easily reads as a stand-alone.
Eva Magnusson, the Swedish girl has come to Glasgow to attend the University. Her father, a multi-millionaire has purchased a luxury apartment for her and 4 other roommates that he has hand picked to live there. Soon after, Eva is found dead. One of the roommates is suspected of the killing and sent off to prison. However, while imprisoned, there are other murders and the victims all resemble Eva. Have the police arrested the wrong man?
Thus starts the nonstop suspense! Ms. Gray’s writing style grabs the reader and doesn’t let go to the very end. With this book, I kept going back and forth as to who I thought the murderer was. Did I figure it out?
A riveting and entertaining page turner! I had trouble putting this one down….and then…..!
WAIT! WHAT!!! The killer is WHO!!?? And then Ms. Gray drops the other shoe..WHOA! A jaw dropping ending! To answer the question…no I hadn’t figured it out!
I highly recommend not only this book but the series!! Will be starting the next book in the series, THE SILENT GAMES in the very near future! Can’t wait!
