The three novels Last Will, Lifetime and The Long Shadow can be considered as a trilogy within the series. (Wikipedia)

  1. José Ignacio – Thank you for this update! It looks as though we have some good things to look forward to in this series.

  2. I am reading The Long Shadow now, so I will delay reading any reviews. It is good that we can look forward to more Annika Bengtzon books.

  3. Hola, de esta autora he leído los tres libros publivados hasta ahora en España y me han gustado mucho. Espero que contin´´uen publicando el resto de libros de la serie, pero por lo que veo la editorial no tiene prisa. Saludos

    1. Gracias por tu comentario Pilar. Ciertamente es una pena que la editorial no haya continuado publicando esta serie, quizá no ha tenido el éxito que esperaban o están pasando por dificultades económicas; lo que no es de extrañar en estos tiempos que corren. Esperemos que alguna editorial se decida a publicarlos porque creo que merecen mucho la pena. Liza además vive parte del año en España y sus observaciones sobre España en este libro creo que son acertadas, mal que nos pese.
