So today I’m back with a blog tour for Geiger by Gustaf Skördeman, a big thank you to Tracy from Compulsive Readers for inviting me along.
The landline rings as Agneta is waving off her grandchildren. Just one word comes out of the receiver: ‘Geiger’. For decades, Agneta has always known that this moment would come, but she is shaken. She knows what it means.
Retrieving her weapon from its hiding place, she attaches the silencer and creeps up behind her husband before pressing the barrel to his temple.
Then she squeezes the trigger and disappears – leaving behind her wallet and keys.
The extraordinary murder is not Sara Nowak’s case. But she was once close to those affected and, defying regulations, she joins the investigation. What Sara doesn’t know is that the mysterious codeword is just the first piece in the puzzle of an intricate and devastating plot fifty years in the making.
– Goodreads –
Absolutely explosive opening to a book, authors this is the way to hook me!
As much as I loved the complexity of this book I found that there was quite a lot of plot lines which made it a little difficult to follow. It was also very political with a heavy focus on the cold war, I did enjoy learning about it however it was almost too much as it went over my head a little and I was taken out of the story.
I do have to say that the author explores some very dark themes with on the page sexual assault of minors which I did find uncomfortable to read.
Unfortunately I couldn’t really connect to Sara’s character, she seemed too angry and stubborn. Some of her actions were so reckless that it felt it a little unrealistic.
I know that I have mentioned a few negatives but overall I really did enjoy my time reading it. Geiger is a really intelligent and unpredictable spy thriller with great plot twists, some of which I didn’t see coming.
