2017 SWEDISH CRIME WRITER OF THE YEAR

AN ACCIDENTAL SLIP OF A BLADE...

A tragic incident on the operating table leaves a patient damaged for life and leads a young surgeon to abandon his profession as a physician... Now, years later, a series of senseless, gruesome murders are rocking the same medical community.

THEN MURDEROUS REVENGE...

The weapon? A surgical scalpel.

But who exactly is preying on these victims? And why? What does this grisly pattern reveal? And who will be the one to stop it?

Special prosecutor Jana Berzelius, who has her own dark secrets to hide, is in charge of the investigation. What she can't know, until she is finally closing in on the murderer, is just how her own mother's recent death is intimately connected.

This intricately plotted and relentlessly suspenseful medical thriller keeps everyone guessing until the bitter end.

For a long time, I was...

For a long time, I was the sort of reader who had to start reading each series in strict numerical order. If I had trouble getting my hands on the first book in a series, it could be years before I began reading it, but that's what I did. Now that I have more years in my rearview mirror than I have out on the road in front of me, I've been bypassing this rule of mine from time to time. There are several writers who are adept at giving you just enough background on their characters in each book that you can jump in anywhere and don't feel lost. If you discover that you love the series, you can go back and read all those missed books. Or not. You have that choice. But there are some writers who are not skilled at doing this. Emelie Schepp is one of the writers whose series you should read in order if you want to feel a connection with her characters. Slowly We Die is the third book in the Jana Berzelius series, and although I could admire the pacing and plotting of the novel, I could never warm to the characters. Since I am a character-driven reader, I was at a disadvantage throughout the book, so keep that in mind. If the story is more important to you as a reader, you shouldn't have a problem reading and enjoying Slowly We Die. However, if the characters are your focus, you just might. Sometimes deviating from my rule backfires. Oh well.
