Review: Block 46 by Johana Gustawsson

Block 46 (Emily Roy & Alexis Castells #1)Block 46 by Johana Gustawsson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is intensely dark and suspenseful. It would make an amazing horror movie. I couldn’t put it down – it was so intense.

When Linneà Blix is found murdered and mutilated, her friends assume it was a random act. But soon, they discover that her death is part of a larger case, involving several other victims across two countries. The crime may trace its origins to the horrors of the Holocaust – where inhuman acts were everyday occurrences.

The novel alternates between the present investigation and the past, where it all started.

I was so gripped by this novel, I think I read it in something like two days. It was so suspenseful, I had no idea what was going to happen next. And I certainly didn’t see that big twist coming. It was brilliantly executed. Amazing.

I also didn’t guess who the “bad guy” was. There were many possibilities and so much was going on it keeps you on your toes. And I really liked the two female investigators; they were different but complimentary, which I enjoyed.

My only caution is that this book is not for people with weak stomachs. Some of it is brutal. But it is, in my opinion, so worth it.

I highly recommend this book and I look forward to more from this series.
