Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and travel. 

Come hang out with me.

The Boy in the Headlights by Samuel Bjork

The Boy in the Headlights by Samuel Bjork

Let me start by saying that I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series by Samuel Bjork. I very inadvertently stumbled across a copy of I'm Travelling Alone a few years back in an airport bookstore and I've been hooked ever since. 🚘

The Boy in the Headlights, of course, does NOT disappoint for lovers of this series. Jumping right back with with Mia and Holger, this time investigating a series of murders that are exact replica's in how the victims are killed, with absolutely NO consistency in the victims themselves. 🚘

I loved this one right from the go - Frode (Samuel) has an unmistakable specific style of writing that creates wild atmospheric tension from the very first page. I love that I feel like I'm instantly transported when I am reading these books; this is not a style that just any author can pull off - these books are very similar to Jo Nesbo's ability to toss you head first into suspense that just does not stop. 🚘

Like with any mystery, I won't offer any spoilers so readers can enjoy this one fully for themselves, but I will say that I really, really enjoy watching both Mia and Holger continue to evolve as characters. I love these two because they are so wonderfully human, flawed people, and I appreciate that they are allowed to make mistakes, grow and mature as the series continues. 🚘

I also love that the stakes are upped as the books move on - a serial killer who chooses seemingly random victims had be guessing right to the very end, I cannot even PRETEND to say I knew what was coming. πŸ‘€

Thank you @penguinrhuk for sending this one over, and making my month. I cannot wait to see what’s next!

QOTD: What is a sub-genre that you really get into? Mine is 100% Nordic Noir. Give me ALL the Nordic Noir Reads.

Happy humpday friends!!! 😁
