A Swedish crime writer as thrilling as Mankell, a detective as compelling as Wallander . . . Håkan Nesser's astonishingly successful Van Veeteren series continues with the eighth book, The Weeping Girl. Winnie Maas died because she changed her mind . . . A community is left reeling after a teacher – Arnold Maager – is convicted of murdering his female pupil Winnie Maas. It seems the girl had been pregnant with Maager's child. Years later, on her eighteenth birthday, Maager's daughter Mikaela finally learns the terrible truth about her father. Desperate for answers, Mikaela travels to the institution at Lejnice, where Maager has been held since his trial. But soon afterwards she inexplicably vanishes. Detective Inspector Ewa Moreno from the Maardam Police is on holiday in the area when she finds herself drawn into the case of Mikaela's disappearance. But before she can make any headway in the investigation, Maager himself disappears – and then a body is found. It will soon become clear to Ewa that only unravelling the events of the past will unlock this dark mystery . . . The Weeping Girl is followed by book nine in the series, The Strangler's Honeymoon.

Within the limits of tolerance could porch martyrdom or maybe the pain, but the mind could tolerate what is beyond it to the underworld’s macabre or perhaps more of the mysteries of the world of shadows, as it is a legend of the reunion with the death of a girl, who saw her father and his lover kill her mother, and after her death dumping her body into toward the sea. And the girl had to witness this and she could not endure the torment, and she went to the reunion with the death of her mother. Awesome! !Oh wow! Since this is the story of the girl in the shadows in each chapter, it makes me shudder, and even some sentences will cause feelings of nostalgia, just knowing that the lost soul of this child cried in search of her mother, wandering in the darkness as witness to this legend.

In a small town called Muddlewoods, young Sadie Sugarspear endures intolerable cruelty at the hands of her brutal stepfather. Sadie finds solace in the one thing her real father, Sam Sugarspear, left behind: a book about an imaginary land, ruled by a king who grants wishes. One day, when her stepfather’s cruelty reaches unimaginable depths, Sadie runs away and hides inside a crevice in her beloved willow tree. To her surprise, the tree opens up, sending Sadie falling down into the abyss, into a land she’s only ever read about—where she must begin a long, terrifying, and heartbreaking journey home. This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie. This is the first novella in Nicole Arlyn’s epic dark fantasy series, The Sugarspear Chronicles. Praise for The Sugarspear Chronicles: "This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mikemovies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book." —A.D.
