Started reading The Quarry by Johan Theorin

I started reading The Quarry by Johan Theorin (translated by Marlaine Delargy) a couple of days ago and so far, 50 pages in, it is just marvellous. Every page is a delight. I’m posting this picture for two reasons: first because it is the first example I’ve seen in a long while of an appropriate sticker! (“Winner of the International Crime Novel for 2010 for The Darkest Room.”) The blurb on the back carries a quote from the Observer: “If you like Stieg Larsson, try a much better Swedish writer”.
Second, this is the first time I have taken a picture (now that I have a device, as I have learned it is called – I thought I was buying a phone!) and uploaded it to this blog. It has taken some days in total to get this far which for someone who was once an expert photographer is a bit galling, but it is done despite the challenges of too many bits of clever technology.
Peter at Nordic Bookblog has already reviewed The Quarry – I haven’t read his thoughts yet as I want to read the book first, but will do so after I have finished it and written my own review.

The Quarry is the third in Johan Theorin’s Oland quartet. I’ve reviewed the brilliant first two novels: Echoes from the Dead and The Darkest Room.
