This is the tale of Annika Bengtzon and her courageous attempt to catch a killer while struggling with the stress and demands of a deteriorating family life. In the media frenzy that follows, insistent crime tabloid reporter Annika Bengtzon uses shrewd investigation skills to keep her newspaper a step ahead of the competition.

As she deftly unravels the layers of an apparent cover up, Annika finds a source within the police department who tells her that this was not the act of a deranged terrorist group as many have thought; but rather a cold-blooded execution designed by one lone murderer.

Annika becomes completely consumed by the story, and in the process neglects her husband and small children. The plot goes into warp drive as she simultaneously juggles the high demands of her family life with the increasing stress of her male-dominated editorial job, and the looming threat of a malicious, cold-blooded assassin bent on making her his next victim. While the suspense may not be as calculating as other more well known bestsellers, it certainly works within the framework of the storyline.

The only aspect of the novel which presented more of a mystery to me than the identity of the bomber is inclusion of a few "letters" intermittently dispersed throughout the book covering topics such as love, lies, humanity, happiness, etc.

Although the mystery gets light treatment and the puzzle is not very challenging, the translation by Kajsa Von Hofsen is superbly written. Liza Marklund has certainly created an honest, hard working and ethical journalist in the main character of this novel, Annika Bengtzon. This is a difficult concept for most of us however, the character is well developed and I couldn't help but admire her, regardless of her profession.

The Bomber is a journey of the exploits of either a mad individual or a terrorist group hell bent on disrupting an Olympics by bombing the sporting venues whilst simultaneously murdering the key personnel involved in staging a successful Olympics.

The story is well developed and steady paced for the most part although more effort in the developement of the climax, would have negated the need for amazing coincidence being necessary for the climax to occur.

In that many of the novels I have recently read have a similar need for extraordinary coincidences, this may have become a style of writing, and The Bomber is certainly not the worst if this is the case.

Marklund understands the demands of the crime reader, and develops her characters very well whilst maintaining a steady pace. There has been a great deal of effort made in maintaining the continuity well written novels demand with the appropriate increase of excitement as the novel draws to its climax, and I thoroughly enjoyed my first Liza Marklund book. A little more work with the climax would have given this novel five stars, and definitely a must on any collection for the true crime reader.

I recently read The Bomber with my book group in Stockholm. As a newbie to Sweden it was a great read to trace Annika's steps around this city and imagine the events in the book. Quite a dark tale but not too much gory details thankfully and the gender politics are skilfully utilised by the author. Can't wait to read the rest of Liza Marklund's works. Liked the authors ability to keep you interested as well as keeping you guessing until the end.

Bought this one for my Kindle 2 when I had to spend a weekend in bed while on a business trip in Japan recently. Although my mobile was out of power my Kindle was not and I was able to order have this book delivered in less than 2 minutes to my device.

That in itself was pretty amazing. And the book is a marvel. Well written and never a dull moment. Reading it is like watching an intelligently done and highly entertaining movie - just a lot better! I wish I could order more books like this for my Kindle. I noticed a whole wall of books from this author in the airport - only two of those are available in the Kindle store.

The Bomber

The problem with a lot of thrillers is that the main characters seem to exist in a world in which thriller novels don't exist, so suspicious actions that send off loud alarm bells in the average reader's mind are invariably rationalized or ignored by the protagonists. Balancing the demands of her family and those of her job, pumping her police contact for information and trying to decide how much of it to publish while barely holding her own in the petty squabbles that flare up daily in the newsroom, Annika digs into Christina's past to find death threats, a hidden marriage and the underhanded way in which she got her job. And when a second bomb goes off, you can bet that Annika will be targeted by the killer, whom readers will have no problem recognizing. The translation by Kajsa von Hofsten is smooth and precise, and while there's an interesting examination of what women like Christina and Annika go through in a world run by men, it's undercut by backlash—if the female characters aren't neglecting their families or snapping at their children, they're insane.
