Psychotherapist Frieda Klein thought she was done with the police. But once more DCI Karlsson is knocking at her door. A man's decomposed body has been found in the flat of Michelle Doyce, a woman trapped in a world of strange mental disorder. The police don't know who it is, how he got there or what happened - and Michelle can't tell them. But Karlsson hopes Frieda can get access to the truths buried beneath her confusion. Painstakingly, Frieda uncovers a possible identity for the corpse: Robert Poole, a jack of all trades and master conman. But the deeper Frieda and Karlsson dig into Poole's past, the more of his victims they encounter - and the more motives they find for murder. Meanwhile, violent ghosts from Frieda's own past are returning to threaten her. Unable to discover quite who is telling the truth and who is lying, they know they are getting closer to a killer. But whoever murdered Poole is determined to stay free - and anyone that gets too close will meet the same fate.

This intellectually inspiring novel was very descriptive and mysterious. Pleasant to read with a lot of thought provoking concepts that required a lot of attention. Nonetheless, it was incomparable with either Dark Saturday or Friday on my mind.

The second installment in this, my new favorite, mystery series did not disappoint. When a naked man is found dead in the flat of a psychotic woman Frieda Klein is called in to aid the police in their investigation. Though seemingly stoic herself, Frieda gets emotionally invested in the people involved in the mystery. Pluses in this series so far are: So many interesting characters. A few lose ends from the previous book are tied up in this one. We are slowly coming to know Frieda better. Also a bang-up good story and tidbits of London history. Love this series. Hope the authors find a way to continue when they run out of days of the week.

Unlike other readers, I don't get why this series gets such glowing reviews. I am not a murder mystery reader normally, but supposed that the genre was going to be incredibly slick and gripping with an amazingly believable cast of characters and situations. I am not getting this. What professional really has such a lot of time to get as deep in danger? And always there is this gossamer thin, ethereal, just-can't-grasp-it aspect that Frieda follows. Honestly, she needs therapy!

Good thriller with an ending which leaves you hoping for more ...

Half of the book is kind of a reminder of what happened in the first book of the series. Maybe it's to facilitate readers who did not read the first book in the series "Blue Monday", to understand where certain characters came from, and to justify some actions described in this book. A lot of descriptions of the history of London, primarily related to its streets. One feels a certain affection for this city, transmitted through the character of Frieda Klein. And the very description of London's weather, gloomy: snow, rain... it is like a background to the evil human behaviour. The impression is that the city is pushing people to commit crimes. Some dialogues I found unnecessary long. There is a description of a certain repulsive detail that is present during one of causes of death, was already used in the first book. It seems to me that there is little need for so many characters. While on the other hand, maybe they will play a significant role in next books in this series. The book is very cleverly and very knowledgeable written. The last pages seemed to me a little too sentimental. And the character from the first book, who is continuing to pursue Frieda Klein, is not needed, it had "to die " in the pages of the second book . But it seems that he's going to pursue for much longer not only EK, but the reader as well.

Engrossing series at the intersection of murder investigation and psychotherapy. Frieda Klein is fascinating character - complex, somewhat messed up, brilliant.
