  • I wish someone would hypnotize me and erase the memory of reading this book.OK, it isn t that bad from a writing standpoint and basic premise, but it had a lot of buzz that I didn t think it came close to living up to Slapping that The Next Stieg Larsson label on any new Swedish thriller is probably automatic at this point, but it sets up a reader up for disappointment when there s no character anywhere near as interesting as Lisbeth Salander around Extra disappointing when most of the character [...]


  • I really liked this novel, and would have given it four stars if not for three things that irked me about the way it was written.1 The authors this was written by a married couple use the present tense in narration e.g Joona walks into the room and sits down At first, I thought there was a compelling reason for this, but after finishing the book, I can t come up with anything, except perhaps that it was poorly translated into English do Swedish authors normally write in present tense I really do [...]


  • Sweden, what is going on there On one hand, this is a pretty good book Joona Linna is everything you want in a police inspector ruggedly good looking, arrogant yet polite, and always right my favorite line I m not usually wrong and I believe we re going to find your son Tell me, Joona, do you ever tell someone, I m not usually wrong I think your son is long gone The story is genuinely creepy when Simone is awakened in the night by someone giving her an injection she stumbles down the hall hearin [...]


  • I suppose I should say this is a spoiler alert Read on at your own risk I continue to be amazed by people s reviews Many most always begin by giving a summation of the plot This is stupid and totally unnecessary People already know what the book is about Personal Reviews should tell what the reader thought This is an amazingly hyped book I would suppose that every publishing company wants to discover the next Steig Larrsen Obviously, Its not that easy First you need to be able to write well Next [...]


  • I read it so you don t have to You are welcome This book is laughably and infuriatingly terrible I only finished it because I paid for it, dammit, and wanted to see how terrible it would actually get, God help me Almost all the characters are unlikeable It begins with the detective as seemingly the main character with a dark event in his past, which, unless I missed it, IS NEVER EXPLAINED But never mind, because the book is really not about him, it is about the hypnotist Fair enough, since that [...]


  • This is a very dark, horrific story that ranks high in creepiness Seriously it left me feeling like I needed to take a shower and wash the creep away The cover would have you beleive that it is comparable to Silence of the Lambs or Stieg Larsson s Millenium series but I have to disagree with that Now I love a good mystery, better still if it happens to be a thriller where life and death hang in the balance as they race to find and stop the villian The Hypnotist certainly contains all of these el [...]


  • Jo jedna GSP avantura je zavr ena U poslednje vreme ponovo itam trilere, i jako mi prijaju Hipnotizer nije remek delo svog anra, sam po etak romana i nije tako obe avaju i, a dijalozi su ovom vedskom autorskom paru slabija strana Naime, Aleksandar i Aleksandra Andoril pi u pod pseudonimom La Kepler trilere u kojima je glavni lik policijski detektiv Jona Lina Neko bi rekao, pa ta onda valja Valja jedan od centralnih likova romana doktor Erik Marija Bark, penzionisani hipnotizer, valja zarazna pri [...]


  • I have never read such an amazing twisting novel.There are not words to express how super this book was.I can only give praise to the authors.Erik Maria Bark, talented doctor whose specialty is the treatment of seriously traumatized persons, formerly also with hypnotize, is called to Karolinska hospital, where a 15 year old boy lies severely injured the only survivor of a family massacre in the outskirts of Stockholm.It turns out that the boy has an older sister who s disappeared, and there s re [...]


  • When I read the jacket of this book, I found it be quite intriguing and considering how many people seem to love this book, I thought I would too Instead, I m probably one of the few people who didn t like this book and will never read another one written by Lars Kepler There were too many fillers needless people and information that made it seem like it was all thrown in to make the book longer than it needed to be and the writing to be weak and choppy and all over the place The synopsis reads [...]


  • I was interested, and at times, gripped by this book, especially in the beginning and at the end However, there were times I was bored, not really reading intensely, anxious for progress I think the book was just too long I felt the dialogue was stilted and that s probably due to translation There were things happening that didn t seem relevant to the story I probably won t read anything by these authors.


  • A minha opini o em v deo youtube watch v ySkEyO primeiro Kepler e que me deu um prazer enorme A hist ria est bem constru da e n o h d vida que os policiais suecos s o mesmo muito bons.


  • Any review of this book should really just be a video of me giggling My God this book was stupid.Conflict was based on stupid sitcom style miss communication, the horribly injured boy with the deflated lung runs around stabbing people with impunity, the police are ridiculously incompetent, view spoiler They think the teen ran away despite the mother having been attacked in her own home and knocked out with surgical anesthetic, they get subdued by an injured teen and random street punks, etc hide [...]


  • This could have been so good, but there are way too many unresolved and unexplained tangents to this tale The narrative jumps from one murder case to the next with no real explanation, I was expecting the connection to be explained nearer the end, but there just isn t one It s like the writers had two plot ideas they really liked and couldn t choose between the two, so just sort of smooshed them together, resulting in something not quite as good as either idea would have been on its own The unne [...]


  • Nem sei muito bem o que escrever Se, por um lado at gostei da hist ria, por outro houve qualquer coisa que correu mal, ou com a tradu o, ou com a revis o, e que me irritou imenso dif cil, para mim, estar a ler um livro na minha l ngua materna e trope ar constantemente em erros Faz me sempre questionar se houve quem n o tenha feito o seu trabalho O que n o d a melhor imagem da editora, convenhamos verdade que ler uma hist ria narrada no presente do indicativo n o propriamente comum Mas tamb m n o [...]


  • I can t say I didn t like this book I just had some issues with it I liked the story line Very dark, but interesting a definite thriller But if there s one thing I can t stand, it s unresolved plot twists So if anyone can help me with these, please feel free1 When Evelyn Ek is being consoled by a female police officer after hearing about her family s demise and disclosing some info about her disturbed and disturbing brother, she bites the officer in the neck and actually causes a bleeding wound [...]


  • Este thriller foi escrito por uma dupla de escritores e talvez por isso seja t o empolgante O desafio acontece a cada cap tulo e quando o leitor pensa que conseguiu desvendar o mist rio nos dado mais pistas, mais acontecimentos que baralham a nossa estrat gia Ler este livro um desafio tamb m para o leitor que est permanentemente envolvido no mist rio e na carga psicol gica das personagens.


  • Lo compr con muchas ganas de leerlo despu s de terminar la trilog a de Millenium, dec an que era de ese estilo y la trama parec a interesante Lo empec y al poco lo dej porque no me enganch , lo intent retomar sin xito y a la tercera fue la vencida pero por orgullo m s que por gusto No me gusta como se desarrolla, a mitad del libro mete un cap tulo s per largo con miles de nombres que te l an Esperaba mucho m s Buena trama pero no me gusta como est enfocada.


  • This book was nothing like I thought it would be An avid crime reader and lover of the darker crime stuff out there I thought this would be chilling, terrifying and spectacular based on reviews by both well known and lesser known reviewers Was I reading a different book As this book did not throw up anything like that my way When a whole family is murdered in Stockholm, DI Joona Linna knows there is only one person who can find the perpetrator Erik Maria Bark, retired hypnotist, is called in to [...]


  • I finished Lars Kepler s The Hypnotist yesterday and again found myself wanting to leave a good 24 hours or so for the book to sink in before I reviewed it I mentioned to a good friend of mine earlier in the week that I wanted to read another Scandinavian crime novel soon, and this was an old reading copy I had on my desk I noticed that it was already available in stores and figured I should get my act together and read it I think I am pleased that I didI won t lie about it there will be people [...]


  • I have never read anything darker, forboding, utterly tormented than Swedish thrillersd continue to come back for When they are done well, as this is, there is nothing insistently suspenseful and satisfyingly terrifying Erik Maria Bark is a highly regarded psychotherapist specializing in acute trauma He is also a disgraced hypnotist Ten years ago, he swore a solemn, public oath never to perform hypnosis again And yet, dragged from his bed early in the morning by a doctor s urgent call, he is [...]


  • 3 stars Another great thriller with lots of twists turns from a pool of talented and recently trendy Swedish authors This one the strange haunting tale of 15 year old Josef, only witness and survivor of the slaughter of his entire family Detective Joona Linna turns for help in solving the crime to a brilliant doctor, hoping he can unlock Josef s hidden memories a doctor who has given up hypnosis doubting its ethics and his own abilities On the plus side, great character development nice cultural [...]

  • The premise of the story is a good one Bodies of a family are found butchered There are no survivors except for the teenaged son who is lying at death s door Under hypnosis, the son confesses to the crime This is where things get bit disjointed for me I found it confusing with the back and forth from present to past Lots and lots of characters, which I think the author managed very nicely I did not like the main characters Detective Linna is a bit arrogant ways demanding people to tell him he wa [...]


  • I was really disappointed by this book It started out with a big bang and had a really good premise, but then it all just fell to hell, becoming a clown car of horrible sadists who just kept parading out of the story in a never ending line, doing the most awful things imaginable I m no horror novice and it takes a lot to shock or offend me, but it was just the multitude of sadists in this book which was so off turning Like there are all these terrible murderers and torturers around every corner [...]


  • 1 palavra 6 letras ADOREI J tinha este livro na minha estante h algum tempo e, n o sei exatamente por que raz o, mas andei a adiar o dia em que iria pegar nele e desfolhar aquelas in meras p ginas.Bem, o dia em que acordei e finalmente o arranquei da estante foi decididamente um dia importante.O livro um thriller recheado de personagens complexas, que vamos conhecendo lentamente possuidor de um enredo entusiasmante e de reviravoltas sucessivas que nos fazem devorar frases e frases, p ginas e p g [...]


  • Sweden is a scary ass place This book was like, One of these suspects has committed a crime All of the suspects are currently involved in murdering people in gruesome ways Which of these murderers has committed the crime If my only knowledge of Sweden were gained through the reading of its bestselling translated novels, I would think that every other Swedish person has a decomposing body in his basement And, incidentally, my only knowledge of Sweden IS gained through the reading of its bestselli [...]


  • Over the past few years, I ve developed a bit of an affinity for Nordic noir, dark crime stories set in Scandinavia There is an engaging darkness that I find myself drawn to in these stories, I don t know if it s the long dark winters that they have there, but many of these authors just connect with me.The Hypnotist is set in Sweden from December 8th until the 24th It is an intense story on many levels the dark antagonists, the depth of the crimes committed, even the betrayals of many of the cha [...]



  • I can not say that I did not like, I can not say either that I really enjoyed this irregular writing novel in which I felt sometimes captivated, sometimes languid, some episodes caughtful The plot is most promising, the actions of the suspects keep you in suspense, however, the author portrays taciturn main characters, there may be, of course, but even the policeman who is supposed to investigate, overflowing with an energy which he might employ to some extravagance, contented himself with doing [...]
