Publisher's Summary

Precious Love is the popular Swedish author Ramona Fransson's first in a series of detective novels with Chief Inspector Greger Thulin. There are seven in the series so far.

Gothenburg, Sweden: During a break-in at the luxurious home of Kenneth and Viola Svalborg, someone has neatly sliced valuable paintings from their frames. Also missing is the neighbor's beautiful 15-year-old daughter, Elina Gullberg, who was babysitting for the Svalborg's two sons. Did she follow the thieves of her own accord? Was she involved with the break-in? Her parents, Daniel and Miriam Gullberg, are sick with worry. Chief Inspector Greger Thulin is called in and senses tension between the two families.

Kenneth Svalborg wants to divorce his wife, the mother of their two children. Viola suspects he has met another woman, which Kenneth flatly denies. A month after the break-in at Svalborgs, a young woman is found naked in the woods, beaten to death. Shortly thereafter, the body of a young man is found in the Mölndal River, shot to death. Greger Thulin and Crime Scene Investigator Charlotte Engman start to see a pattern. Is there some connection between the victims and the two families?

    What would have made Precious Love better?

    Almost nothing.


    What was most disappointing about Ramona Fransson’s story?

    It hasn't.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    No, she doesn't. She's filled the book with irrelevant tedious detail and dialogue. Do we really need to hear person A asking person B if they want coffee, B's answer and how good the coffee was? Good grief, it was tedious.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was delivered in a very dull manner: was the narrator bored, too?


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps the most tedious book I've heard. The narration was poor. The characterization was undeveloped. Was this really set in Sweden or in some town in the USA? It felt more like the latter than the former, perhaps the translator did so for the American market. Still I now know to avoid this author and narrator.

    "Terrible audible book. Don't buy it."

    The performer has no clue how to do this.
    Wrong intonation. Wrong everything. I'm an avid listener of audible. So very disappointed.
