This book is the first installment of trilogy; two main characters will solve the  murder case that happened almost 40 years ago. The book itself was written in         Swedish, (first, I thought the author wrote this in English because Swedish and use English quite fluently, often more accurate than native user.) but actually translated to English, thus many say it is easy to read.

The murder itself is quite psychotic but the author described them in a calm and reassuring way, which I felt this story is something. I am not good at too much psychotic and sadomasochistic one
, but I could not stop reading.

Until middle part of the book, three parts episodes go on respectively, then from the middle part, I promise you can’t stop. The most brilliant thing was how to solve, find the evidence. I really had some fun delving into this mystery.

First I expected this story is more Nazi-related story, still important roll it was, but it was not a main topic.

Unfortunately, I read an article in TIME magazine this author passed away by hart attack while he was writing his fourth story. He was about 50 years old! It is said that he intended to write and plotted around 10 more stories, which is pity. I will read his other two books soon, but I really wanted him to write more.

II also watched this film, however, the novel is much much brilliant. The film emphasized the psycho, lack of depiction its intelligence.

story: ★★★★☆

If you like rommance and history,I am sure you cannot stop. I really like medieval time history, this is exactly what I wanted to read. It's also recommended for non-native readers and even if you don't know about history, you can enjoy this story.

This story is mixed with rommance, history and timetravel. The story was rally plotted. It was written about 20 years ago, which reflects the way of thinking of single woman in America at that time. That part of way of thinking was not fitted for me, but still I really enjoyed. The heroine is a bit emotinonal, I think. But that must be important for that story. Also, it was like watching a film.

 Also it is the first time for me to read such a romantic story for adult female( so-called " harlequin" in Japan, some parts were a little embarrased for me. 

 The last part is quite rommantic, but I didn't expect that ending. That is why this story did get four stars.
