From NetGalley:
Ruth Lennox, housewife and mother of three, is found dead in a pool of her own blood. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson can’t piece together a motive and calls in Frieda, hoping her talents will offer a new angle on the case.

When it emerges that the mother was hiding a scandalous secret, her family closes ranks. Frieda herself is distracted, still reeling from an attempt on her life, and struggling with her own rare feelings of vulnerability. Then a patient’s chance remark sends Frieda down a dangerous path that seems to lead to a serial killer who’s long escaped detection. Is Frieda getting closer to unraveling either case? Or is she just the victim of her own paranoid, fragile mind? Because, as Frieda knows, every step closer to a killer is one more step into a darkness from which there may be no return . . .

It has taken me a good 6 weeks to finish this, but it certainly hasn't been due to the book.  Every time I picked it back up, I was right back in it.  It never lost its appeal to me; however, it wasn't as good as the first 2.  There were some incidents that I didn't buy and some scenes that seemed a bit too choppy, but I'm still interested in this series and look forward to #4.
