"This powerful first in a new thriller series from Swedish sisters Grebe and Träff introduces a delightfully flawed heroine…The action moves swiftly to a surprising climax" ( Publishers Weekly , starred review, Pick of the Week).


A thirty-four-year-old psychologist with a troubled past, Siri Bergman works in central Stockholm and lives alone in an isolated cottage outside the city. Terrified of the dark, she leaves all the lights on when she goes to bed--after having a few glasses of wine to calm her nerves--but she can't shake the feeling that someone is spying on her through the blackened windows.

When the lifeless body of Sara Matteus--a young patient of Siri's with a history of drug addiction and sexual abuse--is found floating in the water near the cottage, Siri can no longer deny that someone is out there, watching her and waiting. With the help of Markus, the young policeman investigating Sara's death; Vijay, an old friend and psychology profess∨ and Aina, her best friend, Siri sets out to catch the murderer and finally put her past to rest. But as their investigation unfolds, virtually everyone Siri trusts will become a potential suspect.

This is book #1 of new thriller series by Swedish sisters Camilla Grebe and Asa Traff. It centers around Siri Bergman who works as a psychologist with a troubled past and this book was quite good.

Good murder mystery written in the formula as so many recent novels from Sweden. My main complaint is the introduction of a weak and unreasonable character to be the murderer. The motive is weak and there is no reasonable connection between the murderer and the victims. It feels like a story going along just fine until the authors decided it was time to wrap it up so let's just pick someone, anyone. I don't think I'll read another of this writing team's efforts.

"Some Kind Of Peace" is the latest in the genre of Scandinavian thrillers. It is written by a sister team of Camilla Grebe & Asa Traff and introduces 34 year old psychologist Dr. Siri Bergman as the lead character. Great summer reading-interesting cast of characters. Looking forward to more mysteries from this writing team.

Everything about this mystery is excellent: plot, character development, atomsphere and descriptions. It must necessarily be a good translation, too.
