    • Finally finished Autumn Killing. Everybody gets to say something in this book. Keeping track of all the people wasn't a problem, but you wonder how Malin holds up under all the pressure.


    • It has started to annoy me that in every thriller the main police character has an alcohol problem or has messed up his/her personal relationships etc. Why can't the police be normal?! I do get it that it's easier to make them more interesting with all sorts of flaws, but non-problematic people can be interesting too. It just requires more writing skills from the writerOtherwise Mons Kallentoft was a good new acquiantance to me, and I'll very likely read more of his books if I come across them.


    • Jo, han får en chans till, den där Kallentoft. Gillade den här betydligt bättre än den förra :)



    • While the previous book ended on an optimistic note (on a personal level), this book is pretty much all darkness - both for Fors personally, most of her co-workers, and the killers victims. It was painful to see Malin make such bad choices in her personal life, and I really felt for her in this book.The mystery part is pretty strong. There were a few red herrings, and I thought that Katarina and Jerry's romance could have been developed a little more (I kept thinking that something was going to [...]


    • Why did I read it? I had read the first two books in the Malin Fors series, Midwinter Sacrifice and "Summertime Death". I had enjoyed the former far more than the latter, and I had hoped "Autumn Killing" was a return to form for Mons Kallentoft.What's it about? Jerry Petersson's body is found in the moat of Skogså Castle, his home. A self-made man, he obtained the castle from a family that had owned it for generations upon his return to his hometown of Linköping. Malin Fors struggles with the [...]


    • This book was at first difficult to get into. The rhythm was chaotic and the syntax kept changing making it even more so. In addition, italicized lengthy paragraphs appearing to be the thoughts of the corpse were disconcerting. Still, something drew me into the story. Maybe the unusual presentation, which I though might have to do with the fact that it was translated from the Swedish. Though it was slow going in the beginning, the story started to unfold and move more rapidly and smoothly. The c [...]



    • I struggled with this book and at times felt I was back at school, trying to get through reading an assigned novel, that was good but just not great, but I kept going to the end. It's a style of writing that takes a bit of getting used to. Maybe a tad high-brow for a crime/murder thriller, which is actually more police procedural. It was slow through the middle, you started to wonder if the police would ever get anywhere with it. Not Kallentofts best work, "Midwinter Sacrifice" was a much better [...]


    • Maybe because I have read all the mysteries by this author, I figured out who the perp was early on. But as ever, the characters and the psychology are interesting. Kallentoft is an unusual mystery writer in that he always shows how "evil" is created, usually from extreme childhood abuse. The technique of having the victims "talk" to detective Malin Fors after their death sort of softens the gruesomeness -- they seem still alive.This novel starts with the murder of a very wealthy man who rose fr [...]


    • This long and tedious novel in the Malin Fors series starts off slowly as the detective inspector continues to recoil from the near murder of her daughter in a previous installment. She can’t meet the terms of her relationship with the girl or her ex-husband, with whom has rejoined. So she begins to drink heavily, jeopardizing the love of both as well as her job. At the same time, Malin and her team of detectives are mired down in a murder case involving a rich attorney/businessman who has bou [...]


    • Bom confirma-se que os livros do Mons K são um bocado dificeis de ler, um bocado lentos. Este livro se tivesse menos 100 pag seria bem mais interessante :)Mais uma vez o autor voltou a usar as personagens mortas como narradores da historia e, ao longo desta, vao mandando uns bitaites ao que a detetive Malin deve fazer :)A espiral de decadência em que Malin Fors entra, refugiando-se na bebida e afastando-se cada vez mais da familia, torna o livro um bocado triste.Estes autores nordicos gostam d [...]


    • I wanted to like this book because generally I am a fan of Swedish crime novels. Without sounding like a psychopath, I found the murder unengaging and I struggled at times with the writing style of the author. There is so much stream of consciousness writing with a plethora of rhetorical questions and minor sentences. That coupled with a mountain of difficult Swedish names and dead bodies that get their own voice, left me wanting to hurry up and finish it.


    • Foi um bocado mais fraco que os 2 anteriores; Malin então esteve completamente descontrolada no que toca à bebida, chegando a afastar-se da família - e levando-a a afastar-se. Foi triste.Quando o caso policial começou num castelo, achei o máximo, fiquei com as expectativas altas, mas o castelo foi só mesmo um enfeite e revelou-se um caso menos empolgante.


    • Neste volume, Malin afunda-se no álcool, distancia-se do marido e da filha, seguindo um percurso em queda livre. Não se percebe bem o porquê de não resolver a sua situação conjugal. Estavam separados há dez anos, existe amor, o rapto da filha no volume anterior juntou a família. Aqui, Malin não consegue lidar com isto, mas não consigo perceber porquê. O afastamento é mal transmitido. É outono e chove torrencialmente, as forças da natureza mostram toda a sua violência enquanto acon [...]


    • I have not read other books in this series so this was my initial intro to the character of police detective Malin Fors. The mystery is straightforward enough. Rich, self-made and ruthless upstart Jerry Peterson is found murdered in the castle he recently purchased from the Fagelsjo family. The family was forced to sell their hereditary home due to financial problems and want it back desperately, but Peterson refuses to sell. Hence the members of the Fagelsio family become the main suspects in h [...]


    • Nepaprastai gera sugrįžti į Malinos Fors pasaulį. Tai neperpuoštas pasaulis, tikras, visi turi sunkumų, turi jų ir Malina, vienas iš jų alkoholis, kitas šeima bei dar viena žmogžudystė. Bėgdama nuo šeimos vyro bei dukros, pasirinkdama tekilą, ji mėgina išspręsti dar vieną bylą. Išgirsti tyrimo balsus. O mes matome visą pasaulį aplink ją: kolegų, nusikaltėlių, vėlių. Skaitai ir spėlioji, bet atsakymo neįspėji, nežinai kas tas blogietis, kuris pasakoja apie save. [...]


    • I very much enjoyed the first two books in the Malin Fors series, but the third installment is a rambling mess. There is a slightly interesting crime at the heart of the book that is surrounded with so much noise, multiple narrators and needless characters that I can understand why people would stop reading the book. There are moments when I wish I had. I liked the first two enough that I will continue with the series and if the next one stinks like this, I will be done.


    • Inspektorka Malin Forsová se stává těžce závislou na alkoholu. Vypije lahev vína, pak láhev vodky a v tomto stavu vyšetřuje vraždu Vrah je samozřejmě nakonec odhalen a inspektorku její nadřízený donutí nastoupit na léčení.




    • Autumn Killing is the third book in the Malin Fors series by Mons Kallentoft. The series so far has been distinguished by excellent characterisation and a fragmented narrative style that has suited the often disturbing plots. Kallentoft has taken a brave stance with some of the themes in his books. In thrillers we normally get a resolution of sorts, but Kallentoft has deliberately kept the assault of a young woman unresolved throughout the series. Here, the case is mentioned once more but the ov [...]


    • Mons Kallentoft has truly made up for the not so good stuff in the previous book in the series and he is, without a doubt, on top of his game with Autumn Killing.Gosh, how this one hit me right in the feels!So much has happened and the emotions I felt while reading the book almost overwhelmed me.All we have is a huge cast of broken characters, all trying to come up to terms with the lives they have, the choices they made and the consequences of said choices.And, trust me, things aren't pretty. A [...]


    • “Autumn Killing” by Mons Kallentoft, published by Emily Bestler Books.Category – Mystery/Thriller Publication Date – September 23, 2014This is the third in a series featuring Malin Fors, a young woman police detective on the Swedish Police Force. In “Summer Death” Malin’s daughter, Tove, is almost killed when she is confronted by a murderer being pursued by her mother.In “Autumn Killing” Malin is plagued by guilt and has become an alcoholic. She has become separated from her hu [...]


    • I received this novel as a first-reads giveaway.Despite not having read the first two books in this police procedural series I believe that I quickly came up to speed on the essentials of the main character, Malin Fors, and her previous life experiences including a failed marriage and failed reconciliation, and the rescue of her teenage daughter from an attempted murder. Though known as a brilliant police investigator in a small Swedish city Malin has many flaws, among them a rapidly increasing [...]


    • The atmosphere of this tale is bleak, depressing, and dim, almost overwhelmingly so. It is a rainy autumn in Linköping, Sweden, so rainy that the rats have been driven from the flooding drains into the streets above. The primary character, Police Superintendent Malin Fors’ personal life is in shambles. She drinks to blur her pain and cannot find the will to save her marriage and give her family the love they need. She is a sad and angry woman and only in work can she find focus. When a wealth [...]


    • Lead character Malin Fors certainly frustrates the reader with her mindless alcoholism (not really explained in the book) and her inability to follow-through on her feelings towards her teenage daughter. At the same time it makes you want to keep reading to find out if she will deal with her devils or not. In some ways her going into rehab at the end of the book is an anti-climax, much as you hope it will be her salvation. All in all, she became a character I cared about.The most unusual feature [...]


    • I won a copy through a give away in exchange for my honest review.I have read the first 2 books in this series - Midwinter Blood and Summer Death and enjoyed them much more than Autumn Killing. A grim, grim read that took me forever to finish (as I kept having to put it down and get away from it for a while). Also slowing my reading pace were the "voices in the head" (changing perspective from third person to first) that kept appearing in italics. Made for kinda jerky reading - like learning to [...]


    • Heavy, heavy, heavy. Our girl Malin Fors is cracking up and drowning herself in tequila. It is so bad her colleagues are concerned. Plus, she keeps having these dreamsEveryone else in the squad room is having problems too. Marital splits, sexual harassment, cheating, making bad decisions a police officer's lot is not a happy one. Winter was freezing, summer was hotter than the hinges of Hades. Autumn, the rain will not stop falling. It is so bad that rats are leaving their sewer homes and coming [...]


    • Ufa, e mais uma vez estávamos a ver que não acabávamos um livro de Kallentoft. Pois é, não foi desta que nos conquistou. Diz a sabedoria popular que à terceira é de vez, mas não foi! A protagonista é uma literal seca, sem brilho nem charme. Com o avançar das tramas torna-se alcoólica. Sem surpresa. Não é uma detective brilhante, embora o autor tente que as personagens assim o digam. Lamentamos, mas não conseguimos simpatizar com Malin Fors. O enredo vai-se desenrolando mas não nos [...]
