Good Thriller but could have been Great! Actual Rating- 3.5

Good Thriller but could have been Great! Actual Rating- 3.5 Stars!
I didn't like Joona Linna (Detective) because I couldn't connect to his character rather I felt more connected to Erik Maria Bark (Hypnotist) and his wife Simone Bark. I liked the way we get a glimpse at Erik's past (10 years ago) and slowly make the connection between what happened then to what is happening now. This story was slow paced but surprisingly I enjoyed that.
We got to know Erik as a father, husband, imperfect hum...

Good Story which gets a bit slow in the middle.

A very good plot with triple murders and their chilling description. The story gets slow in the middle but picks up really well towards the end.
Overall a good read for readers interested in thrillers.

Poor translation. But a good thriller.

This has faced a lot of criticism for the poor translation but i believe this book is upto the standards of The silence of the lambs. The plot is gripping and the characters are well established. The interesting plot promises us a dramatic climax but the author fails in the climax. I feel author could have done better in the climax.
Positives- Strong plot and well established characters
Negatives- poor translation and sub standard climax.

a chilling read..

This comes nowhere near The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But then again, itâ??s a crime thriller of the intellectual genre. There are two storylines running through this book. One, of a boy who kills his family in a gruesome manner and second, a flashback into Erikâ??s life as a hypnotist.

When Erikâ??s past comes back to haunt him, will he link the pieces back together in time to save his sonâ??s life?

Excellent Book to Read

I have read a lot of reviews about this book saying that it is not translated well and that some pages were missing. Fortunately, I didn't go though any of these issues. All the pages are intact and the story did seem to lack a bit of proper grammar, but not as exaggerated as they are mentioned in the other reviews. Another issue that a few people came up with was the fast paced transition of character point of views. But hey, that is not a thing to complain. If you've ever went through an in...

Need a Hypnotist to erase my memories after reading this!

Poor translation of the language is disgusting,some times past is narrated in present tense.When there is something intersting about to happen the narrator swirls back into the past life.Good side of the novel is the plot which is well laid and this is what keeps you hooked to the novel till the end.

Could be way better

Poor translation, weak plot, lack of a strong character.. Thought it'd be a Stieg Larsson type..Nowhere near.. Joana Linna was supposed to play a key role but ended up solving the abduction of Benjamin Bark. I was expecting the writer to unfold the mysteries of Josef Ek's side . How Josef and Evlyn ended up in Simone's apartment though only Lydia had the duplicate keys? How did Eric get the clues from his past experiments on hypnotist groups? It simply just cant happen by recalling the events...
