    1. The Glass Devil by Helene Tursten is the fifth in the Irene Huss series. I am very fond of Irene Huss, a dedicated, smart-but-not-television-brilliant-and-odd detective (although I also like those others as well) who is happily married to a wonderful chef with two non-identical twin daughters, who by this book are nearly grown-up. The ordinariness of Irene is often offset by the bizarre and bloody crimes she solves and this one is no exception. The head of Irene's unit is contacted by an old fri [...]


    2. Detective Inspector Irene Huss is like a Swedish equivalent of Guido Brunetti.A good balance with the dark crimes and dark people and places she investigates; Huss is warm and a lovable character. Actually very good balance with the dark and warm (I love noir). Interesting characters. I think the series has me (already) hooked


    3. Having read Inspector Huss, the first of Helene Tursten's Swedish crime books about Inspector Irene Huss, a happy, well-adjusted wife and mother who hunts down and faces murderous criminals every day in Goteborg and beyond, I was entranced. Tursten turned her hand from dentistry to crime writing when a rheumatic condition disabled her.This story is on the very edge of plausibility, but it didn't fall off. The important characters are beautifully round, and even the flat ones have some spark. I l [...]


    4. 3.75 on the rating scale The Glass Devil is the final translated installment of Helene Tursten's series to feature Detective Inspector Irene Huss; fortunately, she has another five books already written, hopefully waiting to be translated. (Dear Soho Press: hint hint wink wink.) This is a most excellent series; while the previous book The Torso was my favorite of the four, The Glass Devil is also quite good, and here Tursten takes a bit of a different tack in storytelling, focusing much more on [...]


    5. Although it's always refreshing to have a female lead detective, this book falls in some of the traps of the police procedural: too many characters, and too many of those are hard to distinguish from one another without flipping pages back and forth. Her setting in small-town Sweden is fleshed out well, especially the culture of small outposts of the Swedish Church. I found her description of the neo-Pagan character both sympathetic and realistic in terms of the way the detective perceives her ( [...]


    6. Scandinavian mysteries are so freaking dark and sexually violent. I am always unsettled after reading one. This one was no different. However, it was well done and the characters were very well fleshed out. As much as I do not look forward to more darkness and violence, I do look forward to more Irene Huss and her family and colleagues. They are very interesting people.


    7. Dark-dark-dark story, tempered with good people. It might be the formula for successful Scandinavian crime fiction. It works for me but it doesn't leave me happy at the end.


    8. The principal of a high school telephones his friend, Inspector Andersson of the Göteborg Crime Police; one of his teachers failed to show up for work. To Inspector Irene Huss’ surprise, on the basis of this vague complaint her boss drives out with her to a remote cottage in snowbound southern Sweden to investigate. There they find a body, its head blasted by a rifle. Teacher Jacob Schyttelius has been murdered. When they go to break the news to his elderly parents, Pastor Sten Schyttelius an [...]


    9. This is the third novel in the Detective Inspector Irene Huss series. The book opens up with a triple homicide, possibly committed by satanists. There are signs of Satan worshipers left near the bodies, the computers are covered by the victims' blood and the hard drives wiped clean, and the christian crosses in the bedroom are turned upside down. The victims are a pastor, his wife, and their son. Each has been shot at close range and it appears that the murderer has carefully planned out the cri [...]


    10. Glass Devil is very different than a typical American whodunit. There are a lot of things thrown at you that don't have anything to do with the main portion of the story. I am so used to reading the american version that it took me a while to really get into the book. Also of note the fact that the police were taking so seriously the Satanic aspect of murders was very difficult for me to believe, but maybe those sorts of things are different in other countries. The translation of the novel could [...]


    11. I really like Helene Tursten's books, so I'm torn about given this book only three stars. Why? One, because it's not quite as good as the previous books in this series, although, it is good, I need to acknowledge that it's not quite as good as the others. Also, from a personnel view I generally get put off by books where the story line involves mysterious cults, Satanism etc they just seem a little too contrived for me.So reluctantly I gave this book 3 stars, reluctant because I don't want to di [...]


    12. Not one of the best entries in this series, I found it a bit stilted and obvious in spots but still a fairly solid police procedural set in Sweden with some action in England and Scotland.


    13. Yet another Swedish mystery, but this time the inspector is a LADY! And her family is so Scandinavian cool--except for that teenage daughter who's a Naziose crazy kids! From the book description, I thought this was going to be about SWEDISH SATANISTS! But, turns out it was just about Swedish child molesters.


    14. 3.5 stars Not too hard to figure out and the characters and storyline are carried through well. A good series worth following.


    15. Not as good as the first book. It felt like there were too many info dumps. Still, it's nice to see a detective who isn't tortured and has a good home life.


    16. I have so many problems with this book. Figured out the murderer way too early which made getting through the rest of the book difficult. Then the ending where he describes what happened is so silly that would never happen like that. They are supposed to be the detectives but they couldn’t figure out who it was. There are way too many random things happening like the bikers getting shot. This book tried so hard to provide red herrings. Randomly two murderers kidnap her into a car but she manag [...]


    17. This is not as enjoyable as the other books in the series. The characters are uninteresting, & the ending feels forced, as if the author had been in a rush to move on to something more entertaining. London through her eyes is the tourist board's nightmare.


    18. Worst one yet: ludicrous travelogues about London, Irene being surprised that black people are British, BS about computers, and a total left field ending Blech! Hope the next one is better.




    19. Tursten, Helene. THE GLASS DEVIL. (2003; trans. 2007). ***. This is the third novel by this Swedish author to be translated into English. It is the first of her books that I have read. The hero of the series is Inspector Irene Huss, a married woman with two girls. The investigation starts off with the murder of a young man, Jonas, in a remote cabin owned by his parents. He is ruthlessly killed as he was coming in from a session at the gym and a bit of food marketing. Later that night, his elderl [...]


    20. First Line: Everything had seemed perfect.After finding Jacob Schyttelius shot to death in his isolated cottage, Detective Inspector Irene Huss and her team from the Violent Crimes Unit in Göteborg, Sweden, visit his parents. Schyttelius's parents have also been shot to death, and the computer monitor in their home-- like Jacob's-- has a Satanic symbol painted on it in their own blood. Both computers' hard drives have been professionally wiped, and the only lead Huss has-- Jacob's sister in Lon [...]


    21. In the beginning, this book did not seem as compelling as its immediate predecessor, but by the end it took on some of the more exotic elements of the previous work. Irene Huss travels farther afield this time, making her way to London and Edinburgh to track down important witnesses in the case. By the way, I love the descriptions of food and clothing and boyfriends and anything related to family life rather than police work. I especially love the things that are unique to Sweden, such as holida [...]


    22. This is a poor example of the Scandinavian crime genre, I'm saddened to say, especially because Inspector Irene Huss is an interesting protagonist - a loving wife and mother and workaholic. A teacher is found brutally slain, and when the police go over to his parents' place to break the news, they find that the couple have been murdered as well. There are signs of Satanism (inverted pentagrams and all), and evidence of computer geekery - the hard-drives of the machines have been found completely [...]


    23. Enjoyed this. I have read one other, and am not able to get hold of many of this series here (Wales) - it seems to have been translated mainly for the American market and isn't easy to come by. (One big advantage of this for British readers of a certain age - it gives you footnotes converting metric measurements into Imperial for US readers, yay! saves having to work it out). A slight quibble though - I don't mind American English but it grates a bit if you have just been told ON THE SAME PAGE t [...]


    24. I am loving this Swedish mystery series! Plus, they have all been made into movies!I like foreign series because, for me, it is like traveling, and if the books are well written, I have an authentic experience of the mores and habits in another country.Det. insp. Irene Huss is an interesting character. She is the main breadwinner in her family, and she is fairly comfortable with thatt does have her occasional doubts. Often due to the observations of others (not so differ from everywhere, right?) [...]


    25. Glass DevilSo 3 people in a family are found dead at two places, satanist symbols painted on their laptops and one of them a church minister, Irene and the rest of the police have to investigate and are quite convinced the case has relation to a Church burning from some years ago, investigation is also clouded by church members using it to try to defame the other candidates to replace the dead church minister. Surviving daughter too shocked to talk.Last book Irene’s actions killed a man (a mur [...]


    26. This Swedish mystery took me a while to warm up to. At first the story seemed unemotional, but it gradually came to sections where the characters seemed to gain depth and warmth. The main detective here is female, Irene Huss, and she is a member of the Goteborg police force. The police procedure is glossed over somewhat, so you don't get a detailed sense of how the force operates, but there is some discussion of regular meetings and shifts. Irene seems to have a comfortable yet formal relationsh [...]


    27. The third in the Swedish police procedural series, a young teacher, Jacob is found shot and murdered in his family's cottage by the woods. His pastor father and mother are later also found shot and murdered in their beds at home. In both places, a pentagram has been painted on their computer monitors in their blood, and the crucifix in the house has been turned upside down. Everything points to Satanism at work and Inspector Huss and her team are left grasping at straws in their investigation. T [...]


    28. Being as I haven't read the first three books in this collection, I found it easy to pick up and follow. Unlike many other books that come in a collection, it doesn't keep harping back to past events from previous stories. There is only one reference to something that happened before but it is over with in a single sentence. I enjoyed the authors writing style although some references were definitely aimed at an American audience which is probably due to it having been translated by an American [...]
