    noranydroptoread 2015 04 2After reading Lehtolainen s SNOW WOMAN, I was excited to read this book, the first in a trilogy about bodyguard Hilja Ilveskero, who according to the blurb rarely loses her cool promptly loses her cool when her current employer, a wealthy Finnish woman, insists on buying a lynx fur coat Lynx clearly have special meaning for Ilveskero, but it will be many, many pages before we find out what that is, which is odd, because the book is written in first person When this empl [...]

    I really like Leena Lehtolainen s book The Bodyguard So much, that this book was a winner to me It had Lynx in it, we found one frozen to death in a log cabin in northern Minnesota I relate to her there were a lot of Finnish up there also.

    Won in a GoodReads First Reads giveaway Things just did not connect with this story Really a 1 Star sort of book, I give it 2 because it is translated from a Finnish author and as such the locales described are of Finland and Russia, and written from a Finnish point of viewI thought that was at least a change of pace for me.However, the story was just blah It reminded me of watching Quantum of Solace and finding out the bad guy was stealing waterally Similarly here, it is all a debate over real [...]

    J ai t tr s surprise par ce roman La collection Black Moon thriller est encore r cente et je pensais qu il s agissait de romans pour les jeunes adultes, comme les titres fantastique Ce n est pas le cas car Le Lynx est plut t destin un public adulte puisqu il n est pas question ici d une lyc enne qui m ne l enqu te mais d une garde du corps qui recherche l assassin de son ex employeur.N tant pas une grande lectrice de thriller, j ai eu envie de le d couvrir ce roman car son titre et sa couverture [...]

    Liikaa ilveksi Aivan liikaa viittauksia Queensin henkivartijakouluun Paikoin k mpel kielt Kiihke seksi tyypin kanssa, jonka suhteen henkivartijan piti muka olla erityisen varuillaan Ep uskottava ja sotkuinen juoni, jossa pieneen Suomeen oli tuotu Ven j lt kaikkea j nn kansainv list Meni kuitenkin nikirjana muiden askareiden lomassa Muistelin, ett Lehtolainen kirjoittaisi paremmin.

    Not as good as the Maria Kallo books by the same author, but an ok read Don t think the translation is as well done as the other books either.

    T m arvostelu tulee sis lt m n runsaasti spoilereita Jos et ole lukenut t t kirjaa, suositellen ett et lue arvosteluani Tai tarkemmin ajatellen, ehk kannattaa kuitenkin lukea t m arvostelu mieluummin kuin kirja.Yleens olen pit nyt Leena Lehtolaisen kirjoista, ja olen lukenut varmaan ne kaikki Ihan suurilla odotuksilla t t kin sitten aloitin Pettymys oli aika paha.Kirja kertoo naispuolisesta henkivartijasta, Hilja Ilveskerosta, joka lapsellisen pikaistumisen vuoksi eroaa teht vist n My hemmin sam [...]

    The Bodyguard The Bodyguard series Book 1 by Leena Lehtolainen I am not sure, if it is the translation from Finnish to English that is making this book so difficult for me to read and enjoy, or if it just not that well written in the first place I normally love books that are set well at least to me in exotic places, but this book is not doing it for me This book is written in first person and for a mystery, that is normally a very good thing, but getting and staying inside of Hilja Ilveskero s [...]

    Lehtolainen osaa luoda kiinnostavia henkil hahmoja, joiden kautta h n kertoo pieni , julmia tarinoita yhteiskunnastamme Henkivartijassa p henkil Hilja jaksaa kantaa romaania kohtuullisen pitk lle pelk ll persoonallaan, mutta juoni ja stereotyyppiset romanssikuviot kaatavat lopulta h netkin Olin hiukan pettynyt Pahan Ven l isen kuvaan, jota suomalaiset dekkaristit ry st viljelev t talvisodan j lkihekumassaan.Ilvesviittauksetkaan eiv t pelasta edes kissafanin silmiss.

    Ei ollut mun lemppari Lehtolainen Tykk n h nen vahvoista naisistaan, mutta t m oli jotenkin v h n naurettava koko tarina, vaikka dekkareista yleens pid nkin Ilves hommasta tykk sin, sek Jari enosta, mutta kaksoisagentti tappajajutut jotenkin vain tuntuivat tyhmilt.

    3.5 stars Overall I thought this was a good book, although the first half of the book moves very slowly and the plot is a bit improbable Unfortunately, most of this author s work has not been translated although the second book in this series is due in June 2015.

    A terrific read Not as conventional as the average crime novel Not the story and not the main character Maybe it is a little overdone at times, but I thought it a really good read, it kept me captivated.

    Eine coole neue Figur, diese Hilja Die Geschichte fand ich allerdings etwas verworren und manche Szenen die bei Paskewitsch und die letzte romantische Szene etwas unglaubw rdig Letztlich verpufft dann auch die Spannung am Ende.

    I just couldn t go on I belong to a bunch of book groups and this was going to be one of the books I read in a break between assigned books It wasn t as much fun as I had hoped and the fun pile is high and I am old, and I don t have the time or inclination to continue this one.

    Kiva, helppolukuinen dekkari Piti kiinni kirjassa alusta loppuun Kopparn sin luontoa kuvattu hyvin Mielenkiintoinen teos.

    I couldn t put this book down Well written with a believable main character as well well as other characters I am looking forward to by Leena Lehtolainen.

    Mielenkiintoinen uusi aluevaltaus Lehtolaiselta Kansainv list kauppaa, ripaus politiikkaa, uhkauksia, sieppauksia P henkil on hieman erikoinen, mik jo h iritsi lukukokemustani.
