WWW Wednesday is a book list hosted by Taking on a World of Words, and I’m happy to participate today.
The three W’s are:
What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What I finished reading:
I’ve read quite a few of her novels now and she never fails me. How much will I like this one compared to It Ends With Us though.. you’ll have to wait for my review to find out :-).
All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover
What I’m reading now:
Can this book live up to the hype that was created? It’s a dangerous thing to create such high expectations. So far so good though, I’m hooked.. even though I don’t have a clue yet why she’s not talking :-).
The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides
What I’ll (probably) read soon:
I was invited to read this one and be in the blog tour in January but even if they hadn’t invited me, this one would have been on my radar soon anyway. I didn’t realise it has over 500 pages though (ohoh) so I better get a move on and start reading it in the next weeks.
The Chestnut Man by Søren Sveistrup
One blustery October morning in a quiet Copenhagen suburb, the police make a terrible discovery. A young woman is found brutally murdered with one of her hands missing. Above her hangs a small doll made of chestnuts.
Ambitious young detective Naia Thulin is assigned the case. Her partner, Mark Hess, is a burned-out investigator who’s just been kicked out of Europol. They soon discover a mysterious piece of evidence on the chestnut man – evidence connecting it to a girl who went missing a year earlier and is presumed dead; the daughter of politician Rosa Hartung. The man who confessed to her murder is behind bars and the case long since closed.
Soon afterwards, a second woman is found murdered, along with another chestnut man. Thulin and Hess suspect that there’s a connection between the Hartung case and the murdered women. But what is it?
Thulin and Hess are racing against the clock, because it’s clear that the killer is on a mission that is far from over . . .
‘As in The Killing television series, Sveistrup offers lessons to seasoned practitioners of the serial-killer whodunit in how to inject new energy into this near-exhausted subgenre, and a reminder (via his portrayal of the families, homes and workplaces that his cops visit) that crimewriting has the potential to be eye-opening, panoramic social realism’ Sunday Times
