Night Rounds An Irene Huss Investigation Night Rounds by Helene Tursten is one of the best Scandinavian crime novels I ve read in a while This one has night nurses who go missing, murder, surgeries, and most interesting of all, the ghost of a long dead nurse who appears at night on the ward where she worked fifty years ago. Night Rounds Inspector Huss by Helene Tursten Night Rounds seems a little co Despite a profusion of characters and situations, her exposition is admirably logical, clear, and consistent The characters are plausible and well developed, suspense grows, and the challenges of armchair detection are just sufficient. Night Rounds by Patrick Modiano Patrick Modiano s Night Watch originally published in English as Night Rounds is a short novel that yanks the reader in to the grubby underworld of Occupied Paris during WWII, and then holds you there, caught between gritty chaos and the fuzzed edges of memory.

      Night Rounds wins my vote in Highest Number of Outrageous Texts My copy of the book is littered with underlines, circled errors and comments but there s too many to highlight them all here I really wanted to like this book though, I was excited thanks to the premise and the author s background I could be missing a few things, since this is part of a series HoweverThere was a lot of problems with the way this investigation was written using Irene Huss point of view 1 I found it disturbing and qui [...]

      Irene Huss, Detective Inspector in the Gothenburg, Sweden police force is a person you would like to know and, especially, a person you would want on your side in a crisis She is an intuitive investigator who also follows accepted procedure other than when the exigences of the plot force her to do something dangerous which, of course, is the case in just about every crime novel published After all what is the point of having a protagonist, one that the author develops over a few hundred pages an [...]

      I was excited to win a copy of Night Rounds A Detective Inspector Irene Huss Investigation by Helene Tursten in the first reads I am a big fan of Swedish thrillers of the Scandinavian, Nordic Noir genre generally And I enjoyed Detective Inspector Huss, the first in a series featuring a non angsting Swedish detective, Irene Huss.Irene is wife to a chef I admire a woman who marries well , mother of twin teenage girls one of whom is passionate, excitable, and prone to getting herself into difficult [...]

    4. Ann Sloan says:
      I was eagerly waiting for this fourth installment of Swedish Investigator Irene Huss The first books, Detective Inspector Huss, Torso, and Glass Devil, had been so complex and intense that I had expected that level of page turning compulsion from this book.Truthfully, I had been a bit put off by the perversities of the other books incest, sado masochism, religious zeal , but I found that I missed that element in this book This was a no frills police procedural, well written, but just not compell [...]

      A nurse is murdered during a power failure in a small private hospital At the same time a patient dies as there is no electricity to power his ventilator and the next day another nurse is discovered missing An elderly nurse insists she saw the perpetrator and she was a ghost This is the basic plot of a solid police procedural It is not particularly riveting but it gets the job done, examining the case from all angles and leading the team looking into the historical aspects to be nicknamed Ghostb [...]

    6. Chris says:
      This is one of those books that looks at gender issues but does it very subtly Irene Huss is not a perfect character, she might not even be the smartest detective in the room, but unlike many other detectives, in particular nordic ones, that I can think of, she is one of the most well adjusted ones She is an everywoman, and there is something comforting about that.The mystery here is quite good and rather engrossing It plays with the ideas of ghosts, both real and emotional.

    7. Sara says:
      I really like Swedish detective mysteries and have read all of the Inspector Huss books The last one The Torso was so graphic and disturbing that I was questioning whether I would want to read another However I think Irene Huss is a strong female character and I feel like the books give some insight into the workings of Swedish culture, which I find interesting The sub plots of Irene and her family are entertaining, as well as the personalities and interactions within the police department and t [...]

      Helene Tursten does not disappoint in her second novel with Detective Inspector Huss The story is well plotted, with interesting characters This one takes place in a private hospital in Goteborg, Sweden, In the darkest night, the electricity goes out, and when it gets back on, an elderly surgical patient and a nurse are found dead A few deaths happen before the perpetrator is caught There is also a ghost nurse, representing someone who committed suicide at the hospital many years ago The back s [...]

    10. Betty says:
      Second in the series and I am definitely a fan Solid police procedural with believable characters Detective Irene Huss has a normal family life with two teenage daughters who do what teenagers do bicker and rebel The interactions at work are unfortunately too realistic a boss who tolerates sexual harassment or doles out lame consequences But work gets done and crimes get solved, and the reader has hope that the jerks will get their comeuppance eventually.

    11. Brian V says:
      Swedish female Description of family a bit repetitive from last book adds some human interest but is kind of forced Similar perpetrator theme and incomplete ending investigation of prior history of hospital owner and suicide victim lover is the center of the plot but never connected with the resolution of the case, which seems to be a critical piece of the puzzle, and final confession, based on assessment the perpetrator is a sociopath and will want to brag is cheep way to bring a resolution.

    12. Sue Galbraith says:
      A light read, I am beginning to think Helene Tursten has a formula that she follows for each story, ticking the boxes as she goes through each scenario But I will keep reading from time to time, as the story is still enjoyable and the plot hard to guess.

    13. Carole says:
      I really like this series Good police procedural and characters I like In the end Dr Lowander 2nd wife is the serial killer as she is afraid that he will divorce her and she has plans to turn the decrepit hospital into a upscale spa.

    14. Kathleen says:
      Straightforward and intriguing, this novel explores a series of murders at a private hospital Irene Huss and her colleagues use solid police procedure to solve the mystery There is some domestic drama with Irene s teenage twin daughters but it illuminates the family pressures a dedicated detective endures and handles while working a high profile case This book is blessedly free of annoying foreshadowing a pet peeve of mine and illustrates how a well crafted mystery does not need unnecessary bell [...]


    15. Debbie O'Mahony says:
      This is a good read I would read by this author Inspector Huss family life adds an interesting dimension to the mystery.



    16. Alma04 says:
      Zo fijn Weer een Scandinavische serie waarin een misdaad opgelost wordt en het verhaal van de hoofdpersoon verder gaat Doet denken aan Camilla L ckberg.


    17. Margaret says:
      Good plot Good characters Interesting setting Almost gave 3 stars due to copy edit snafu.

    18. Sarah Haman says:
      Decent mysterydidn t figure it out till closer to the end than usual.


    19. Lynn says:
      Solid police procedural which again concentrates on the teamwork of the murder squad The wacky confession at the end put a damper on this one for me, but generally enjoyable otherwise.

    20. Deak Wooten says:
      Tedious with two dimensional characters Little tension, including the identity of the murderer, which is obvious the moment that character is introduced The twists and turns of the plot were well laid out, but that could not overcome the pedestrian writing.

    21. Nancy Oakes says:
      Really, I d give this between a 3 and a 3.5 rating, not quite a 4 CAN WE GET SOME 1 2 star ratings, please The action begins in a hospital in the middle of a complete power outage, where the night nurse is on the way back to her station after helping the doctor on call with a patient whose alarm has gone off in the darkness Sadly, the lack of power to the patient s respirator leads to his death Technically the ICU nurse should have taken charge, but she seems to have gone missing Looking through [...]

    22. Marylouise Dreibelbis says:
      Mystery was well done My only concern is the fleshing out of the main character, none in this book.

    23. Cathy Cole says:
      First Line You re absolutely certain this was the nurse you saw last night An old hospital is hit by a blackout When the lights come back on, one nurse is dead and another has vanished There s only one witness, and she claims that Nurse Tekla is responsible The witness isn t being taken seriously because Nurse Tekla died in the hospital over sixty years ago.Enter Irene Huss, a former Ju Jitsu champion, the mother of twin teenage girls, the wife of a successful chef, and a Detective Inspector in [...]

    24. Bonnie Brody says:
      Helene Tursten s second book in the Irene Huss series is quite good Many of the characters return from the debut mystery and they are further developed in this book Irene herself is shown as an excellent police officer and a woman who has family issues she has to deal with Her twin daughters are teenagers and are sometimes a trial for her Her husband, Krister, is an excellent chef at a chic restaurant and is often overworked and tired She is excellent in ju jitsu and knows how to navigate office [...]

      NOTE In the short time since I wrote this review, the series numbering has been changed to reflect the chronology, rendering most of this review nonsensical Anyway, if you read this series in the correct order, you will be pleasantly surprised by how much better the translation work is in the next two books Reading a new series in translation creates a couple of difficulties that both manifest in this book First, despite being labelled number 4 because it is the fourth book in the series availab [...]
