    1. A very strange and different read from this Nordic author Ilka leaves Denmark for Racine, Wisconsin, of all places, when she inherits and undertaking business from the father who left her and her mother when she was only seven Hoping to learn about her father and his life, she arrives to find a business seriously in debt and an unsolved murder.Not quite sure what to make of this one, it is very different from her previous books I liked Iklas character but the writing and atmosphere is ve A very [...]


    2. The Undertaker s Daughter is definitely something completely different from what I had expected when it comes to a Sara Blaedel book For one thing, it did not feel like a thriller, a mystery book And, despite the serious subject did the book feel a lot humorous than I had expected You know the sad kind of humor when everything goes wrong, but in a funny kind of way Like in this book when Ilka is out shopping for a coffin when the coffin that ass ordered wouldn t be delivered becaus The Undertake [...]

    5. The first book in a new series by one of my favorite authors Forty year old Ilka Nichols Jensen travels from Denmark to Racine, Wisconsin, USA, when her estranged father dies and leaves her his business a funeral home Ilka s life as a widow in Copenhagen was nice and peaceful, she took school portraits for a living, and her mom and partner were close by A nice, uncomplicated life She s quite shocked when she finds out that the father who had abandoned them when she was 7 years old had mad The fi [...]


    6. I hadn t read very many pages of The Undertaker s Daughter before I began forming an intense dislike for Ilka, the main character She must be a prime case of arrested development her mother knows Ilka s father better than Ilka ever will, but she hares off to Wisconsin like a bratty teenager because her mother couldn t possibly know anything She s full of plans on what she s going to do once she gets there, but what does she actually do Locks herself in her room, ignoring everyone all the nex I h [...]
