  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2009 May #2
    "What happens when a mystery writer murders someone in real life? Can best-selling author Tobias cover up his crime and live with the consequences? These two questions are the driving themes behind Frimansson's latest Swedish thriller, a dark and chilling tale about consequences and madness. Tobias, blocked in his attempts to begin a sequel to his acclaimed detective novel, agrees to help out at the family farm after his father is injured in an accident. At the farm, he meets Sabina, his father's long-term girlfriend, and her mentally disabled son and is drawn into the events that lead to his terrible crime. Fast-paced, suspenseful, and thought-provoking, Island of the Naked Women will satisfy fans of Frimansson's previous works—Good Night, My Darling (2007) and The Shadow in the Water (2008)—and appeal to all psychological thriller fans."

Author Notes

Inger Frimansson, author and journalist, is considered by critics to be Sweden’s premier author of psychological thrillers. They place her novels in the same class as the best English and American novels in the genre. Inger Frimansson’s writing is characterized by the way she sees the dark and morbid reality behind what seems to be an idyll. Her style is concise and suggestive and she has established herself as one of Sweden’s bestselling thriller writers. Frimansson is the only female writer to be awarded twice with the Swedish Academy of Crime Writers’ Award (for Good Night, My Darling in 1998 and for The Shadow in the Water in 2005, both of which have been published by Caravel Books).
