(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book: (summary from Goodreads)

While her colleagues investigate the brutal murder of a prominent businessman, Jessica Niemi must battle demons from her past in this terrifying new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Witch Hunter.

Powerful executive Eliel Zetterborg has been found murdered in his upscale Helsinki home. What at first seems like a straightforward case soon proves to be anything but when it becomes clear the murderer has other targets. The only clue the police have is a photo of Zetterborg with three men whose faces have all been scratched off.

Detective Jessica Niemi has taken some time off from her work with the Helsinki police to track down the coven that nearly killed her, and her partner, Yusuf, is assigned to lead the investigation. But as Yusuf delves into the case, he realizes he needs Jessica’s help. And as they dig deeper, they realize that the evil they’ve been hunting all along has returned and is lying in wait for the right moment to strike.

my thoughts:

A Nordic noir that will captivate and keep you reading til the wee hours of the morning. The Last Grudge: A Ghosts Of The Past Novel by Max Seeck, is the third book in the popular series, and it is terrific. Chock full of suspense and thrills, this story will have you on the edge of your seat. I really enjoyed getting caught up in this new-to-me police procedural series - it was an exciting story that reeled me right in. 

A powerful man has been murdered and the case is a tricky one. Detective Yusuf is tasked with leading the charge on the case and he definitely has his hands full. His partner, Jessica, has take time off from the police station in order to deal with the coven that nearly ended her life. Suffice it to say, the two have a lot on their plates.  And, things get much worse, the more they each dig into their cases. Talk about evil never dies. Yikes!

Seeck has written a thrilling story that will have you guessing what will happen next at each turn, and rooting for Yusuf and Jessica all the way through. Of course, you'll also be left craving the next book in the series and ready to count down the days until it's released here in the States. 

I would happily recommend The Last Grudge to anyone and everyone looking for their next great read - make sure to check it out!
