Blue Monday by Nicci French


I just finished this one, the first in the Frieda Klein series.  I have read one other in the series, Waiting for Wednesday and really enjoyed it.  The relationship between Frieda and Karlsson is now easier to understand after reading the first in the series.

This was  a well written psychological thriller.  Frieda is an interesting character whose mind makes connections and works through problems in an unconventional manner.  The mystery was somewhat improbable to me and therefore I didn’t find this as good a book as Waiting on Wednesday.  To get into the specific problems would spoil the book for others, so I will just leave it that I didn’t find the big reveal to be shocking or surprising and the ending was unbelievable.

The character of Frieda and her relationships is what really drives these books and therefore I will probably read the next book in the series.
