Read full description of the books:
Not only is there a HUGE gaping hole in this plot, there’s one in my heart now, too. This didn’t come close to being everything I hoped it would be. One of my most anticipated reads of 2017, I was sure The Lost Woman would deliver even more of what I loved most about The Forgotten Girls and The Killing Forest—Louise and Eik. I thought this was their big chance. The payoff for all of the tension and possibility that’s been surrounding them for a few books now. Sadly, I was wrong.
This started off so promising. Louise and Eik have been living together for the past six months and they’re happy. It’s hard for Louise to admit, but things are actually good. Until her lover and Search Department partner, Eik steps out for a pack of smokes and disappears.
This is where Sara Blaedel shines, in my opinion. She manages to deliver such a realism and likability to her characters, despite their issues. While the cases are interesting and all, it's the characters that have kept me coming back, time and again. The indecisiveness dripping off of Louise in this situation is palpable. She’s wavering between thoughts of being a girlfriend that’s too controlling and doubting that Eik would just up and leave without a word. She swings from one end of the emotional gamut to the other and honestly, who wouldn’t? I was right there with her, worried one minute and ready to throttle Eik the next.
Especially when he turns up hundreds of miles away, in a cell, hungover and not really willing to provide any answers. That was the major flaw in this story for me and what I’m referring to as the huge gaping hole —the complete lack of dialogue between Louise and Eik. Which, I have to say, was beyond frustrating. How is it that Louise never once confronts Eik and demands some type of explanation? The storyline begged for more communication and emotion between them. Something, anything really, to cement the deep connection I thought they shared. Even a simple acknowledgement that he hurt her was non-existent. Instead, they avoided each other, for almost the entire book, while she worked the case.
The dead woman, at the center of the investigation, turns out to be none other than the missing girlfriend that’s been haunting Eik for the last eighteen years. It was a little predictable, easy to pinpoint the killer and manage a guess at the subsequent outcome, but the case itself was still quite interesting. It dealt with the controversial topic of assisted suicide and the many factors that encompasses.
A little clinical, to-the-point and wrapped up in a way that actually felt too happily ever after, I can’t say it was my favorite of the series. Talk about sweeping things under the rug. There just wasn’t enough of an acknowledgement of what went down or emotional moments between Louise and Eik for me to fully wallow in their little family unit. That's not to say I won't be jumping at the chance to read another book from this cast of characters.
