      Well the cat didn't die in case you wanted to know. Things didn't work out with Beth. Anything that could go wrong did. I won't say more because it would give away the plot. It was a good story by the way.

      I would have liked to see more about the victim. I was really disappointed by this book. When I think crime novel, I think "who dunnit" but this was "I'm going to tell you 'who dunnit' and I want you to understand the minds of the murderers after the fact." Bleh. When did this style of glorifying the perpetrator take hold? It totally sucks and so does this book. Oh, and if you're an animal lover, chapter 2 will break your heart. Just stay away from this book.

      Het uitgangspunt is simpel maar veelbelovend: Beth, de hoofdpersoon, betrapt een insluiper in de schuur bij het zomerhuis, grijpt een bijl, slaat de man de hersens in en begraaft het lichaam in de bosjes achter het zomerhuis. Dan staan ineens haar zus Juni en zwager Werner met hond Kaiser op de stoep. Beth, toch al flink overspannen van het hele gebeuren, kan de gedachte aan ontdekking van het graf maar nauwelijks verdragen. Na de vakantie gaat ze weer voor de klas staan en stort haar man zich n [...]

      This novel is as dark and cold as a Swedish winter. It is the bleak tale of a couple united by a bitter event that weighs on their relationship, slowly but surely melting it like snow in the spring thaw. The cause of this situation occurs when Beth Svard grabs and wields an axe to defend herself from a man she believes is about to strangle her, splitting his head open.Then, instead of calling the police, perhaps obviating further repercussions, she and her partner, Ulf Nordin, decide to bury the [...]

      Ik vond het een apart boek. Het begin vond ik interessant en na de moord zag je hoe Beth en Ulf hier op een andere manier mee om gingen. Ook kreeg ik de indruk dat Beth een psychische stoornis heeft, omdat veel dingen die ze zag, niet bewezen konden worden. De omslag naar het buitenland vond ik daarentegen raar. Als lezer kreeg ik de indruk dat de auteur vast hing met haar verhaal, er een plot twist in aanbracht en het verhaal afraffelde. Het einde vond ik dan ook erg raar en niet realistisch. M [...]

      It was interesting to see how the murderess (although she didn't regard herself as one) and her husband both coped with the murder. On a whole, the story is rather depressing. It is either hot, or cold, or wet, never right. People are either hungry or not able to eat or drink. They aren't able to sleep (would you, if you used an axe to bash someones head?). Even without the murder, the lives described are depressing. I never know why I read books like this

      This started nearly as a four start novel but flopped later nearly onto level two. Therefore "average" three stars in the end :-)The African experience was somewhat out of place like an additional plot which has been clued on in order to make the story longer when other ideas had run out. Anyway the novel was slighly different and not entirely without merits. Fast to read and interesting enough.Kissa, joka ei kuollut

      Is it the long winters that make Norse mystery writers so grim? This is a psychological murder mystery, where everyone and no one is guilty (except the eponymous Cat.) All connections are spurious, all actions doomed and violent, all people live isolated in their traumatized brains. I'm not sure I can make it through to the end: the murder comes up very soon in the book and the title assures me that the only creature I care about makes it.

    10. Barbpie

      This psychological thriller is set in the Swedish countryside and in Africa. Unlike Justine Dalvik, the loveable psychopath “heroine” of two of Frimansson’s previous thrillers, the “heroine” of the Cat Did Not Die, Beth Svaerd, is a very nasty psychopath, who just keeps getting more twisted as the story progresses, but she has her reasons. The Cat Did Not Die is filled with fascinating characters and animals and races to its surprising but satisfying conclusion.

      In a moment of panic, a neurotic woman becomes an axe murderer, then spends the rest of the book in terror of being discovered. Inspired, perhaps, by Dostoevsky? This book is certainly not on the same literary plane, but it does lay on the psychological angst until the moment of discovery, which, frankly, came as a relief to me.

    12. JoAnne

      This had been on my list for quite a while after seeing the title at a local bookstore. All the reviews on said to be surprised at the last two sentences - a shocker! I might have missed the point - I have spent all day trying to decide what they mean. Did I fall asleep during a crucial point and skip something???? Help!

    13. Laurie Frost

      A creepy tale about the psychological disintegration of a woman who commits an unpremeditated murder. Somewhat like Minette Walters at her best, only swifter and tighter.

    14. Hazel Bartie

      Really loved up until it lost it's way a bit three quarters of the way through (would have been 4 stars up until then).

    15. Suki

      An examination of the slow psychological disintegration of a woman after a terrible crime that she and her partner decide to cover up.

    16. Matt Cotton

      Amazing. Darkly hilarious. I laughed often and after reading other reviews I thought, "God, What's wrong with me"?
