Geiger – Gustaf Skordeman


This is the first novel I have read by this author and it is outside my normal reading genre but I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I was drawn to it because of the blurb:

The landline rings as she is waving off her grandchildren.

Just one word comes out of the receiver: ‘Geiger’.

For decades, she has known that this moment would come. She knows what it means.

Retrieving her weapon from its hiding place, she attaches the silencer and creeps up behind her husband of 50 years before pressing the barrel to his temple. She squeezes the trigger . . .

It did not disappoint. Well written with twists and turns all the way through, but not for those who are faint hearted.

Sara, is the main character and is strong and decisive. The plot moves from spy story to child exploitation and takes the reader along with cleverly planned intertwining storylines from the present and past. What a great read packing an amazing punch.

Many thanks to NetGalley, Bonnier Books UK, Zaffre and Gustaf Skordeman for my ARC of Geiger in return for my honest review.

Highly recommended
