Echoes from the Dead by Johan Theorin

This book happens to be my first book written with a Swedish background and indeed my first encounter with a Swedish author. A thriller based based in Oland, Sweden where a small child goes missing from an island, without a trace. Does that ring a bell?With a similar background, and with a not so distinct plot, it is easy to see from where the author gets his inspiration, and I just wish publishers will stop posting Steig Larsson's name on all thrillers, be it by Scandinavian authors or by Japanese.  But well, the story, the narration, the outcome, the quality of writing, all differ from the Steig Larsson masterpiece. Not a bad read, but nothing too commendable about the book either.
