Beth's Review: The Last Confession of Morten Flygare by Morten Flygare
APC PUBLISHER: Independently published RELEASED: May 13, 2017 GENRE: HORROR, SUSPENSE LENGTH: 300 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
The Last Confession of Morten Flygare is an unnerving suspense thriller narrated by Morten Flygare – multi-lingual translator and multiple murderer. The blood-stained document that comprises the narrative of the novel is his claustrophobic, unreliable account of the murder of Valentina, and the incarceration and death of his drug-addicted sister, Sonia. This is no ordinary confession, however. In a unique and distinctive style, Morten gradually reveals his secret: this story has only one reader, the police inspector he holds responsible for his beloved sister’s death, and that while he writes in the flickering candlelight, he has one last grotesque secret to share that is his ultimate revenge. The Last Confession of Morten Flygare is a ‘whydunnit’ with a twist. TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
The Last Confession of Morten Flygare was not for me. I’m not saying it’s a bad book; just that it was not what I expected. The writer was good, in that, he was able to tell the story to be understood. The story, however, was a bit creepy… Ok, a lot creepy. This story basically tells readers how a serial killer works to find and kill his victims, with a lot of disgustingly gory detailed in between. Throughout the book, the killer, Morton, keeps talking to the “inspector” (police officer) to confess how he managed to kill several victims, starting with a prostitute and ending with the inspector's own daughter. I did not care for the book but if you like this kind of stuff, have at it; to each his own.
