I am currently reading Elizabeth Is Missing by Emma Healey

Elizabeth is Missing
Blurb

How do you solve a crime when you can’t remember the clues?
Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesn’t remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Back home she finds the place horribly unrecognizable – just like she sometimes thinks her daughter Helen is a total stranger.
But there’s one thing Maud is sure of: her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket tells her so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, to leave it alone, to shut up, Maud will get to the bottom of it.
Because somewhere in Maud’s damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy-year-old mystery. One everyone has forgotten about.
Everyone, except Maud. NetGalley

I have just finished reading Summer House with Swimming Pool by Herman Koch

My review will follow shortly.

Summer House With Swimming Pool

Blurb

When a medical mistake goes horribly wrong and Ralph Meier, a famous actor, winds up dead, Dr. Marc Schlosser is forced to conceal the error from his patients and family. After all, reputation is everything in this business. But the weight of carrying such a secret lies heavily on his mind, and he can’t keep hiding from the truth…or the Board of Medical Examiners.

Next I will be reading The Murder of Harriet Krohn by Karin Fossum

The Murder of Harriet Krohn

Blurb

On a wet, gray night in early November, Charlo Torp, a former gambler who’s only recently kicked the habit, makes his way through the slush to Harriet Krohn’s apartment, flowers in hand. Certain that paying off his debt is the only path to starting a new life and winning his daughter’s forgiveness, Charlo plans to rob the wealthy old woman’s antique silver collection. What he doesn’t expect is for her to put up a fight.
The following morning Harriet is found dead, her antique silver missing, and the only clue Inspector Sejer and his team find in the apartment is an abandoned bouquet. Charlo should feel relieved, but he’s heard of Sejer’s amazing record — the detective has solved every case he’s ever been assigned to.
Told through the eyes of a killer, The Murder of Harriet Krohn poses the question: how far would you go to turn your life around, and could you live with yourself afterward? Goodreads

    1. I know, luckily only in my book choices! Apparently according to an article I read today women in the UK are hooked on crime with 21 million books being bought annually… makes my TBR look miniscule. Review for Summer House with Swimming Pool is up now 🙂

  2. I wanted to read Elizabeth is Missing but was turned down by the publishers (may have to do with where I live, not based in UK etc. etc.) Do let me know what you think of it!
