"Five stars" Reviewed by Lucinda E Clarke for Readers' Favorite
I chose Vanished? by Christer Tholin to review because I enjoy stories set in Sweden and its neighbouring countries, and often watch them on television. This book did not disappoint, although it could be described as a cosy mystery. While there was a crime to solve, the hero, Martin, is sensible and does not act out of character. He is a lawyer based in Berlin and does not morph into a Rambo character, but correctly and realistically leaves the case to the people he's hired to solve it. The characterisation is excellent, I grew to like all of them and could identify with them. This is a down to earth story, both believable and entertaining, and I read it in one sitting. It flows from beginning to end, has been translated into correct English, and I think is worth every one of the five stars.

Vanished?: A Swedish Crime Novel by Christer Tholin is the nail-biting first instalment of Tholin's gripping Stockholm Sleuth series that should not be missed. Vanished?: A Swedish Crime Novel takes us, voracious readers, on a path brimming with unforeseen twists and turns as our unlikely trio work to unfold a daunting and dangerous mystery. I love the way Martin jumps in, full reigns, to save a woman he hardly knows, all while dealing with his own personal trauma. I was captivated thoroughly from the first page needing to turn the pages faster and faster as I was drawn in by the chilling storyline!
