The Scent of Almonds by Camilla Lackberg
Published: December 2014
The Scent of Almonds by Camilla Lackberg is a short novella, a classic who-done-it.
Lackberg used one of the detectives from her regular Fjallbacka series (Martin Molin), and put him on an island where the murder takes place. Of course a storm hits, and no one can get away.
Martin wasn’t sure he wanted to come with his girlfriend to her family reunion, and he quickly wishes he hadn’t. When the patriarch collapses at the dinner table, it is up to Martin to investigate the family. No one is happy about this situation, least of all Martin.
Very classic murder mystery — well done!
