Crime fiction reviews and comments.
Dorte - What an interesting contrast! I wonder why they chose that color combination...I'm no expert, but it wouldn't have been my choice.
I have the British cover on my TBR mountain, far better!
Margot: usually I look at the price before the cover, but I really wouldn´t want to be caught in a train reading that girlish thing. Norman: British covers are often very good, and this time the difference is striking (screaming?)
It's odd that they color scheme is so totally different.MasonThoughts in Progress
Mason: publishers often have their own ideas about what looks good and what sells, but I think this cover is a great mistake - if they expect men to read their crime fiction, that is.
I can't really see many men wanting to read a book with such a shocking pink cover. I personally wouldn't want to read the one top middle either - it's very scary.
That "girly" pink does seem odd for a crime novel.Personally, I'm most drawn to the British cover. I like the colors and the tree in the background. Have you read this yet? Does the statue in the foreground of the Swedish cover play a crucial part?
Tracy: it is funny, really, because of course the story is the same. I think the British is best as the story is not gory or anything. Kelly: you can read my review tomorrow. The statue is not important, but art is (paintings).
LOL. The pink certainly tames it down.
I am never relying on the cover!
The pink makes it look like chick lit.
Beth: yes, it looks like something I would have loved when I was ten. Ole: very sound principle. Nevertheless I think the publisher made a blunder. Bibliophile: exactly, and rather misleading as the plot and police work are better than in her earlier novels.
Oh come on! It's just a color! sigh...I do think it pretty. :)
Care: well, I did read and review it, but then I am a woman :D
