I really enjoyed I m Travelling Alone by Samuel Bjork and was looking forward to reading the second novel featuring Holger Munch and Mia Kruger When a botanist stumbles over a dead teenage girl in a forest clearing posed in a pentagon, surrounded by feathers and with a white lily in her mouth, Munch is called to investigate the strange murder This crime leads them to a local home for troubled children, where the girl was staying, and to crimes with their shadow in the past and yet links to I really enjoyed I m Travelling Alone by Samuel Bjork and was looking forward to reading the second

is called to investigate the strange murder This crime leads them to a local home for troubled children, where the girl was staying, and to crimes with their shadow in the past and yet links to a modern technology that only the newest member of the team, computer specialist, Gabriel Mork, has any understanding of Holger Munch is relieved to have something to take his mind off the impending re marriage of his ex wife Although the couple divorced many years before, Munch has never come to terms with the failure of his marriage and is deeply depressed Likewise, Mia Kruger, whose sister died of a heroin overdose is also unable to cope with past events Deemed unstable and unfit for duty, she is being forced to have therapy and only returns to work when Munch says that he needs her.In a sense, one of the issues with this book is not that it is not fast paced, exciting and full of interesting characters, but that it is both different but very similar to the previous novel The story may be different, but the themes are very similar In the previous book, Munch was depressed about his divorce and he still is, while Mia Kruger thought about suicide and she still is That novel was about religious sects, child neglect and mental illness and this book also mirrors many of those themes Although I really like the fact that the characters in this series are fleshed out by work colleagues and family members, I think the author now needs to move away from those in the vicinity of Munch and Kruger s world and move away from storylines which involve, and impact on them, so personally That aside, I did enjoy much of this novel and I do really like the characters as depressed, and depressing, as they always seem to be I have hopes that this is just a difficult second novel and that this will evolve into a series which lives up to the promise of the first book If you enjoy dark and gritty Nordic Noir, then this will certainly be for you but I suggest you read, I m Travelling Alone, first, as that really explains the characters motivations and sets the scene for this novel The Owl Always Hunts At Night by Simon Bjork is the second in the Nordic Noir Munch Kruger police procedural series set in Norway and is a decent thriller and certainly worth a read.The criminal element of the book was interesting to read and quite unique It gathered pace towards the end and became quite compelling However, I did feel in my opinion only that too much time was spent on the two main characters emotional state of mind and this slightly detracted the story from the main

element of the book was interesting to read and quite unique It gathered pace towards the end and became quite compelling However, I did feel in my opinion only that too much time was spent on the two main characters emotional state of mind and this slightly detracted the story from the main plot Detective Mia Kruger is a woman on the edge, still struggling with several deaths in her family and a distressing case in the previous book which has made her resort to alcohol and various pills to get her through each day Her boss, homicide investigator Holger Munch is an unfit, tired, overweight policeman who still finds the breakdown of his marriage quite raw Although Kruger must pass psychiatric therapy before being readmitted back onto cases, she refuses to fully comply Regardless, Munch is desperate to have her back on the team so therefore brings her in to help solve the mystery of the death of a young girl found in what looks like a ritual murder When no forensic evidence is found it takes a young hacker to uncover something that makes the team believe they may soon be looking for a second victim.Although I thoroughly enjoyed the main plot in itself, I just found the overload of character emotions throughout the book a little excessive for my liking.I would still readby this author in the hope that the characters emotional states take a bitof a back seat to the main story I understand that the first in the series I m Travelling Alone was a cracking book so I may even look that up to fully understand Kruger s mental issues 4 stars #DOWNLOAD EPUB Û The Owl Always Hunts

Munch and Kruger back together to investigate the death of a young girl from a home for troubled youth Her dead body is discovered posed in a ritualistic fashion and the team is further shocked when it turns out the young girl s captivity was streamed for sadistic billionaires who could afford it.In the midst of this turmoil, Kruger is struggling with suicidal depression stemming from the death of her beloved twin sister 10 years ago and Munch is struggling with the fact that his ex wife is getting remarried In the meantime, Munch s daughter, Miriam, just can t get a break considering the events from the first book Her dalliance with a new lover leads her right into the hands of the very individual Munch and his team are seeking.The plot felt muddied, slapped together, definitely rambling and nothing was fully explained or fleshed out There s some kind of a cult in Australia that abused children by making them dress as owls for some reason, which was never delved into A pair of sibling survivors from this cult factor in as suspects but they are red herrings.A disabled mentally ill man also crops up Another red herring.The villain is a computer prodigy that abducts women who look like his mother, who committed suicide years ago Paging Dr Freud Is he in the houseThere was less police procedural drama andpersonal digressions Nearly half of the book is given to Kruger moaning about how much she wants to end it all but Munch s kindness and worry over her prevent her from accomplishing the task Kruger comes off as a self serving, selfish brat, not some brilliant detective which we are led to believe has a gift of profound insight into deviant criminal cases The only thing Kruger seems to be good at is drinking J germeister.The other half of the book has Munch dealing with family issues, his ex wife moving on with her life and his only daughter, a young mother and supposedly responsible, falls head over heels in love with a dude she barely knows, actinglike her shoe size than her age Munch himself is no Columbo He s old, smokes too much and his weight is frequently used as a harsh indictment of his appearance He s not remarkable, not very smart, just average His team seem to be on the ball and that might give the illusion that he s extremely competent, which he isn t He s just okay.I didn t like Munch and Kruger in the first book and the same goes here The Owl Always Hunts at Night wasn t terrible, but the mystery is messy and unclear and the main characters are not strong or memorable enough for me to recommend this series This is dark and bleak Nordic noir set in Norway It is the second in the Holger Munch and Mia Kruger series and the first I have read It works reasonably well as a standalone It begins with Tom Petterson, a botanist, discovering the dead body of a emaciated teenager There are signs of rituals attached to the murder with the presence of a pentagon, owl feathers, candles, wig, a horse head tattoo and a flower in the

the presence of a pentagon, owl feathers, candles, wig, a horse head tattoo and a flower in the mouth Holger Munch is at his ex wife s home and reeling from the news that she is to be married when he

sister, Sigrid, and in the midst of contemplating suicide The case helps her refocus her attention away from her personal issues for a while.This is a case with its roots in the past The team follow several threads to the case that lead to a children s home housed within a plant nursery The various people and children are investigated In the meantime, Gabriel Mork, a IT and technology expert, has a friend from his past, Skunk who draws the team s attention to a disturbing and horrific video on the dark web featuring the dead girl The police team have their own problems such as Jon Curry Larsen drinking and relationship problems Miriam Munch, Holger s daughter, is experiencing angst that has her engaging in a extra marital affair and animal liberation activity There are a number of twists before the shocking finale.What strikes me is the preponderance of mental health issues that afflict a number of characters in the story Mia, whilst seeing a therapist, has no intention of being helped or even acknowledging that she has a deep rooted problem She resents any overtures of help offered Holger is unable to move on from the disintegration of his marriage that occurred years ago The killer whilst ostensibly being smart and intelligent is mentally disturbed and disturbing And there are a number of other characters in the novel experiencing mental health issues I enjoyed reading this novel but there needs to be character development in Holger and Mia for me to pursue this series further Many thanks to Random House Transworld for an ARC I m trying to be a bit selective with the crime series I follow To only commit to those that start particularly strongly and then, to at least get beyond the first novel Hence, The Owl Always Hunts At Night, the second book by Samuel Bjork featuring detectives Munch and Kr ger I thoroughly enjoyed I Travel Alone and was looking forward to the second book in this dark, Nordic series.Mia Kr ger and Holger Munch come together again to solve another nasty, twisted murder Kr ger the inspired, now I m trying to be a bit selective with the crime series I follow To only commit to those that start particularly strongly and then, to at least get beyond the first novel Hence, The Owl Always Hunts At Night, the second book by Samuel Bjork featuring detectives Munch and Kr ger I thoroughly enjoyed I Travel Alone and was looking forward

place relying on pills and alcohol to get her through the day Munch, her boss is still overweight, sad and weary with an ex wife he still loves and children he feels he s failed They and their team grapple with the outlandish murder of a teenage girl and gradually uncover a chain of events that is both bizarre and chilling.I enjoyed the wayof the team are given depth and back story, and that the main protagonists are further developed.Many of the characters are psychologically damaged, with mental illness a recurring theme There are also troubling scenes of abuse and an ever present darkness to this story But, despite the bleak and and violent subject matter, the book never feels depressing and the action moves relentlessly fast and held me throughout.Maybe the plot was a little far fetched in places and the perpetrator wasn t given quite enough psychological depth a point picked up in Bjork s first book by a good GR friend of mine but I was impressed with this gripping follow up and certainly didn t guess whodunnit The Owl Only Hunts At Night is unsettling, imaginative and well written with characters that are beginning to feelthan just acquaintances Number three in the series is to be released soon I think I m hooked
