This is the last book written by the author of the Wallander. It apparently picks up on the life of a doctor Fredik Welin who appeared in the book Italian Shoes. It’s a stand alone novel, so hopefully it won’t cause me any problems not having read the first book. I choose it for my European reading challenge- this is from Sweden.
The first line is – “My house burned down on an autumn night almost a year ago”.
Taking part in this meme has made me think about opening lines. They have to grab you so you want the next line. In this one line the scene is set. There was a fire, a home was lost but as it was a year ago the owner survived.
I want to read on. Would you want to read on do you think?
