De försvunnaDe försvunna är en gastkramande och oförutsägbar psykologisk spänningsroman av Caroline Eriksson där ingen är den man tror och ingenting är som det först verkarEn solig sensommarkväll tar Greta Alex och dottern Smilla båten från sommarstugan vid den mytomspunna sjön Maran och åker ut till ön Greta stannar kvar i båten medan de andra går iland De kommer i. Three stars for an exceptional beginning that grabs you from anything else you wanted to do But unfortunately soon it becomes difficult to keep its promises It's not a mystery or a crime novel and it can't stand firmly as a psychological thriller

Händelse i barndomen satt djupa spår i henne Historien gör sig påmind och frågan är vad som är sanning och vad som är lögn verklighet och fantasi Kan sägnerna om sjön Marans onda krafter stämma Finns det ett samband mellan försvinnandet och det som skedde den kvällen för många år sedan då Gretas pappa dog Och vad har egentligen hänt med Alex och Smill. I raced through the first part of this book and by the time I stopped listening I realized it had been 5 hours and I was 75% done I usually only listen to 2 hours maximum before I feel the need to take a break but I was so involved in the story I didn't even notice Unreliable narrators are one of my favorite story elements and Greta is unreliable in spades It's not clear what is going on or what Greta's exact issue is but it's obvious that she is not reacting to events like a normal rational person To tell you too much would spoil the story so I'll leave it at that I will note that there is some violence to animals and although we only see the aftermath it is disturbing I listened to the audio version and the narration was very good There were a few mispronounced words that I noticed but overall it was well done

This book is a wild scary ride down a long hall filled with mirrored madnessGreta is a young Swedish wife vacationing with her handsome husband and adorable daughter They take a short afternoon boat ride to a nearby island Then Alex and little Smilla disappear over a hill and never return So Greta returns to the mainland and notifies the police right No she returns to the mainland to retrieve her cellphone When her calls to Alex go unanswered she goes to sleep When she finally makes it to the police station the result is shocking to us but exactly what Greta expected Because Greta's life is filled with mysteriesWhat is it about Scandinavians that we find so fascinating With the predominance of blonde hair and blue eyes glowing complexions and slender athletic figures they look like children from the Dawn of Time True their homelands are cold and barren but their society is well ordered and logical After centuries of producing some of the most fearsome warriors in human history they've denounced violence in favor of peace euality and fairnessBut violence is hard to eradicate and there's plenty of it in this story There's the careless emotional abuse of faithless spouses the mindless brutality of angry teens and the measured deliberate cruelties meted out by a charismatic sadist And as always violence begets violence as surely as night follows dayThe Scandinavians have also proudly promoted gender euality but eual education and professional opportunities can't erase the basic vulnerability of women to abuse And so this book is partly an examination of why some woman are vulnerable than others The narrator during most of the book Greta is a young woman whose family tragedies have left her uncertain and submissive Desperate for the affection she feels was denied her she's an easy targetBut what about her rival who picks up the narrative We never learn what in her life made her agree to become a physical and emotional prisoner Could ANY woman be tricked into an abusive relationship Is it just a matter of meeting the right sociopathIt's also a book about the motherdaughter relationship which seems unbreakable no matter how rocky it looks or feels Motherhood especially of a daughter makes a woman vulnerable to abuse but it can also give her the courage to do what she has to do to get free of an abusive relationship One of the women in this book did just that and has no regrets One is determined to free herself and the fate of the third remains in doubtI don't normally like psychological thrillers and it's impossible to say why this one grabbed me All I know is that I started reading it and when I finished it I realized that I had left my chair four times twice to get tea and twice to visit the bathroom The first few chapters were confusing but once I got into the story I couldn't stop readingIt could be called melodramatic but I'd argue with someone who denounced it as unbelievable It's important to remember that the author is trying to get inside the mind of an emotionally fragile individual Greta bears the scars of childhood trauma and her instability has been heightened by the clever manipulation of the person who now controls her life It's impossible to demonstrate irrational fears and obsessions WITHOUT being over the top dramaticSo could it happen I'm reminded of an incident several years ago when a celebrity marriage imploded and there were rumors of violence Amidst the staunch denials on both sides one of the wife's countrymen commented admiringly She fought back like a brave Swedish girl Sounds like the wild Viking blood lives on
