Review: Echoes from the Dead by Johan Theorin
Review / September 20, 2013

Fans of Swedish crime fiction can look forward to a treat in Johan Theorin’s Echoes from the Dead. It has all the requisite criteria of a gripping thriller. A story stretched across time and an eerie atmosphere all infuses a timeless tale of betrayal and deceit. Add to it the setting: the island of Oland set in the Baltic Sea. Unsurprisingly, the island has its fair share of tales of strange happenings.
