At first he had no idea where he was. The melody stopped. He stretched and saw pastel flowers on the wallpaper. There wasn’t a sound window. The beach hotel in Visby. His eyes fell on the digital alarm clock next to the bed. It was five thirty in the morning. Then the tune from his cell phone started up again. Hi. Did I wake you? Sorry to call so early.

Of course she had been a little nervous earlier, because it had been a long time since they had all seen each other, but now her anxiety had eased. After an extra-strong welcome drink, white wine with the appetizer, several glasses of red with the entree, and port with dessert, everyone at the table was in a lively mood.

The jogger ran north along the water's edge, the sand heavy underfoot after the night's rain. At the promontory he turned and headed back down the beach. Inspector Anders Knutas is back in the sixth instalment of Mari Jungstedt's dark and compelling series of crime novels, set on the island of Gotland. This crime adventure builds on the already strong series, which combines chilling atmosphere, razor sharp plot twists and a brilliant cast of subtly crafted characters.

I enjoyed this debut novel by Swedish author Mari Jungstedt, Unseen: A Mystery. It is the first in the Inspector Anders Knutas series of police procedural novels.

The story takes place on Gotland, an island off the east coast of Sweden in the Baltic Sea, in the town of Visby.. It is the Midsummer holiday when thousands of people travel to Gotland to spend the summer or vacation for a few weeks, and this year a serial killer is on the loose. The police are under pressure to make an arrest before fear of the killer hurts the tourism business on the island.

Helena and Per were having a party to celebrate the holiday with a group of Helena's friends. Helena's longtime beau, Per, was an exceptionally jealous man who got extremely angry when she danced with a handsome man named Kristian that night. It led to a fight that drew blood and ruined the party that had been going so well. The next morning Helena and her dog were found dead, killed with an axe and Helena's panties stuffed in her mouth. Per becomes the suspect because of the fight the night before, not only with Kristian but with Helena after the guests had left.

Two more people will die before the perpetrator of these crimes is caught. The present day story is interspersed with a first person narrative by an unknown and unseen person. The pace of the story is very steady and it is suspenseful. For the few criticisms I have about the book, I can take into account that this is a debut novel and overall I liked it very much. The reader has to pay attention to the characters in the beginning of the book because there are a lot of them and they are introduced fairly fast. I plan on reading the next book in the series.

The first of Mari Jungstedt's Gotland murder mysteries, featuring Inspector Knutas and the young journalist Johan Berg. These novels have everything we have come to expect from Scandi noir -- tense plotting, strong characterization, and a powerful sense of place. The island of Gotland, where these novels are set, is a particularly lovely and exotic locale. It plays a major role in the stories.

The Gotland setting puts the contrast between fictional Swedish crime and actual Swedish crime into sharp focus. When I visited Gotland a few years ago, our hotel had a rack of Ms. Jungstedt's novels in the lobby, mostly in Swedish. I told the innkeeper that I wished more had been translated: he laughed and said that her books were very popular, but perhaps a little exaggerated. He told me that there had been just one real murder on Gotland in the last 35 years, despite the extraordinariy high fictional crime rate. For Sweden as a whole, there were 93 deaths in 2009 due to manslaughter, assault or murder, in a population of 9.4 million. Fictionally, of course, the place is awash in blood. One is reminded of 1930's Britain, when fictional murder ran rampant, but the country in fact was very law abiding. Ah, well, that's what makes fiction fun.

This is a well-written and intelligent novel, with good setting, atmosphere, characterization and plot development. The ending is fairly good as well, as it is dramatic and suspenseful. The story's conspicuous weakness for me, however, is the uselessness of the police investigators, who never discover any useful clues or draw any insightful conclusions or even narrow down the focus of their investigation. Even when given one or two massive clues, the police still don't put things together. In the end it's other characters who solve the puzzle, and one is left feeling that the investigators are incompetent or that the writer doesn't know how to have her investigators unravel a mystery. Hopefully the author learns how to do this in future books, as she is otherwise a very talented writer.

This is the first book I have read by this author. There is a theme that permeates this story of crime, investigation and resolution. It is about connection between partners, and between parents and children. Sometimes it is hard to remember that the perpetrator of a crime had a childhood, had parents. It can be hard to remember that the environment, especially the emotional environment of a childhood, has strong a strong influence over a developing person. Blame, and the resulting shame, can freeze a person's development. Even with this in mind, a reader still cannot excuse a lack of self-responsibility. That is the difference between the perpetrator and those who seek him because of his crimes, and I think this author gets this important distinction. It will be interesting to see how this author develops her character, Inspector Anders Knutas, in future books.

I finally have read the first book in the series
A group of friends meet on the island of Gotland - a Swedish island. Helena is with Per; Emma with her husband Olle, and their neighbors Eva and Rikard; and Beata and her American husband are all there. It begins as a fun and relaxing party but then Per's jealousies explode leading to accusations and rage.
The next morning Helena is murdered on the beach. All signs point to Per, her longtime boyfriend. But then a 2nd murder happens while Per is in jail
Interesting story - well developed

This is the first book I've read by Jungstedt and I really enjoyed it. The plot was intriguing and I liked the main character. I did feel as if a subplot about one of the potential murder victims and a journalist who works with the police was left unresolved. And the ending of the book was a bit abrupt. I went to tap on the bottom right hand corner of the page and.....that was it! No more pages and I was slightly taken back. But overall I really enjoyed the book and will definitely read more by this author!

Ms. Jungstedt was an unknown author for me so I was surprised to find her novel so enjoyable. The story is full of interesting female characters that are more fully developed than the police detective 'hero'. I interpret that as a good sign for future books in the series in that the author will build (and is capable of building) a personality and back story for the hero so that he will grow more interesting as time goes on. And, this strategy makes me want to read another of Ms Jungstedt's novels, sooner rather than later.
