Fiction. Translated from the Swedish by Laura Wideburg. Once again, Inger Frimansson takes her readers into the dark hearts of our friends and neighbors. Her crime novels are unsettling in their deep examination of everyday human lives. Frimansson's characters are not evil, nor are they particularly unique. They get caught up in desperate actions, though, which inevitably lead to more desperate actions. And the deeper they go, the more difficult it is for them to escape. It is easy to identify with her protagonists, and therein lies the attraction of her writing. The dark Scandinavian noir style clearly lives in Inger Frimansson.

Frimansson is a master at describing the indescribable nausea of the horrible with both sharp psychological insight and flawless observation.--Gefle Dagblad

THE CAT DID NOT DIE is gruesome tale by one of Sweden's best female mystery writers. Few can built up such a dark, desperate, intensive atmosphere, with the pleasant Swedish country landscape as a backdrop.--Syd stran
