Set in Uppsala, the story does a nice job in highlighting that the city is definitely not just a traditional university town, but that it has been suffering from growth and instability -- not necessarily new themes. The crimes, however, did not really work for me that well, and the ending felt rather contrived. ( )

We read this book out loud - Will, Louise (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/9281934-louise) and I on a long road trip. Reading about the snowy Christmas in Sweden served to cool us down in the hot August weather. In true Agatha Christie fashion, there are lots of characters, any one of which has a motive for the crime. Sifting through the background information and keeping track of clues led us to many fun hours of speculation. I agree with Louise's review, including that the ending is somewhat unsatisfying. ( )

There exists a time in my memory when I had never read crime fiction from Scandinavia. It strikes me as strange, given that I am now extremely well-read in the area, and could probably write a doctoral thesis on it with ease. A librarian recommended the book, I started reading it that night, and was immediately gripped with a desire to find out more about Swedish crime novels. The Princess of Burundi was different than the crime novels that come from the U.K., the U.S., and my home country of Canada. The weather is more bleak, the darkness at the winter solstice longer and more profound. Immigrants, especially those who don't have white skin, are looked upon with more open suspicion that they are in this country. The social welfare system doesn't work in the way that the Swedes are famous for: despite the high taxation the country is still very much a land of haves and have-nots. I was as much interested in the background of the novel as I was the crime itself.

John Jonsson, an unemployed metalworker and tropical fish aficianado, does not come home one evening. He is found dead, tortured to death, the next morning. A woman in the same city is sexually assaulted. Another woman is murdered and her body dragged across the floor and secreted under her bed. It is almost Christmas, and with half the police force already departed for family celebrations, a skeleton staff investigates the crimes, almost all of them believing that somehow all of them are linked.

It's a good story, satisfying, with loose ends wrapped up. It's a portrait of madness, extremely well written and described. The book examines closely different human relationships: mother and son, husband and wife, brothers, friendships. It is piercingly accurate about the truths and lies that so often make up familial relationships. I enjoyed the book, but in light of all the wonderful Scandinavian crime fiction I've read since I first read it, it rather pales in comparison. It tries to be Scandinavian noir but doesn't fully succeed in the way that Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbo do. Still, it was a good book to curl up with and enjoy. ( )

Maybe a bit dry but very realistic crime story from Uppsala with greatly written characters. Some may find it slow pacing and lack of twists but this realism is what I like in it. ( )
