I can't remember the last time I became so completely immersed in a book. This is an atmospheric & beautifully written historical crime novel set in 18th century Stockholm centring around 4 main characters. The setting is so well rendered that it is a difficult read in places but so worth your time. I read about 100 books a year & I have no doubt this will make my top ten list.

I found The Burning Chambers by Kate Mosse or Martyr by Rory Clements to be grittier and far more engrossing. This plodded and was dull.
