review 1: There were two parallel stories and that kept the book both interesting and confusing. The reason I gave this 3 stars and not 4 was the way it ended. I wanted to know the full story about John Osvald and what the grandson was doing in Scotland. I wanted to know more about Inspect...

review 1: i read this right after the first in the series and the similarities were pretty obvious. a different case, but the same procedure for solving it - winter relies on his shady contacts, there's a tip from a citizen (that also takes forever to come to light, yet we know about it fo...

review 1: A terrific book by a terrific Swedish mystery writer. Though long, really kept my attention. Led the reader through many - interesting - labyrinths. As usual, I never suspected the perpetrator! The strange, mysterious death of a woman (did she write the suicide note herself? ...

review 1: it was a pretty exiting book... Near the end. If it wasn't because I have already read other Chief Inspector Erik Winter novels, I would have been extremely confused with who is who. Åke Edwardson does not do a very good job at showing us more about the characters and how they ar...
Segel aus Stein (2002)

English
3.4 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: If you like the unrelenting procedural, this would appeal to you. It's a pathway that Winter follows and follows and follows. The actual story is not that great, its the why it happened that intrigues, except it never really gets resolved here. I was not that pleased with this st...

review 1: A mystery that is confusing, to say the least. I keep getting lost in the confusing array of characters. It does not help that he switches settings and characters repeatedly within the same chapter by simply starting a new paragraph. It takes 5 os 6 sentences for the reader to re...

review 1: This is part of a series of Inspector Winters books. This did not add much to his story. It was a psychological mystery. As far as structure it really did not have the usual 3 peaks with the most compelling driving us to the finish. It was all one level and one story and one ...

review 1: Erik Winter is an interesting investigator to me in the ilk of Kurt Wallender, definitely not a perfect man, I find his extra sensory perceptions to be described in a believable way and enjoy his interactions with his 40-year old sister. This particular novel had so many flashbac...

review 1: Far from the best of the Erik Winter mysteries, Room No. 10 makes a tenuous virtue of the detective's mid-life crisis. A married version of James Bond, Erik has it all: great taste in wine, Scotch, food, clothing and jazz, an attractive and high-earning doctor wife, two adorable...

review 1: Room No. 10 by Åke Edwardson is the seventh in the series, which I failed to notice prior to reading the book. There are times when reading the previous books in a series is important, and in the case of Edwardson’s Inspector Winter series, I do believe order is crucial. I will...

review 1: I am going to have to start an Excel spread sheet with the authors/detectives of Nordic crime. At this point, I swear that they are all muddled in my head. What separates them from their North American/British counterparts seems to be their angst. It comes in all flavours but the...

review 1: 3.5 starsThis was a pretty good start to a series. I found the mystery interesting and I liked Winter. My biggest complaint would be that I couldn't tell Winter from Macdonald, their voices on the page were so alike, I frequently had to refer to other passages to remember whose p...
