I read 3 books in the last week

The Informationist by Taylor Stevens. A woman goes back to Africa where she grew up to find a missing woman, the daughter of a rich American. But the authorities of the small country she’s tracked the woman back to, are threatening her to leave. 4 stars
Blijf bij ons [Stay With Us] by Florence Tonk. A Dutch woman and her boyfriend move to Ukraine, where he has a job. She’s bored until they buy a holiday house in the countryside. 4 stars

The Bomber by Liza Marklund. At the Olympic Stadion in Stockholm a bomb has gone off and a person has died. Journalist Annika Bengtzon is very cleverly trying to find out about the background of the incident and the victim. She hasn’t much of a home life, which her husband and children resent. A great read! 4.5 stars
