#Review Stalker (Joona Linna #5) by Lars Kepler
This is the first book I read by Lars Kepler. It was the fifth book in the Joona Linna series, I didn’t realise it was book 5 in a series or I wouldn’t have started reading ( I hate reading so far into a series without starting at the beginning) it can be read as a stand alone though I do feel having read the previous I would have a better feel for the main character Joona Linna. I found him to be a bit boring and didn’t really take to him.
The story was good though at some points there were random events that didn’t seem to have anything to do with the main story and that threw me off a little. It did take me a while to get into, I am not sure if that is because it was book 5 or Swedish noir which is something I haven’t read a lot of. Also there were parts that was clear was written by an author just the tone etc, as it is a husband and wife team I can see why, but I would have expected more fluidity between the writers.
Over all it was a good story and once I got into it I found it quite creepy.
