Bøger af Karin Slaughter

Karin Slaughter er en succesfuld amerikansk krimiforfatter. Hun blev født i 1971 i sydstaten Georgia, hvor hun voksede op i en lille landsby Covington. Hun studerede to år på universitet Georgia State, men færdiggjorde ikke sin uddannelse. Inden sin debutroman ”Blindsighted” udkom i 2001, arbejde Karin Slaughter blandt andet som husmaler, skadedyrsbekæmper og ved et skiltefirma. Debutromanen ”Blindsigthed” som på dansk udkom under titlen ”Mord for øjet”, er den første bog i den bestialske Grant County serie, som har tryllebundet og underholdt læsere verden over. Serien foregår i Georgia, og har tre hovedpersoner: Sara Linton, som er børnelæge og detidsansat ligsynsmand, hendes eksmand Jeffery Tolliver, som er politichef og detektiven Lena Adams. Det er blevet til seks bøger i Grant County serien. Karin Slaughter er kendt for sit hårdkogte og voldsomme sprog, der kan få hårene til at rejse sig, på selv den mest garvede krimilæser. Hun er optaget af at afdække menneskets skyggesider og hemmeligheder, og af hvordan volden og kriminaliteten påvirker mennesker. Udover bøgerne i Grant Coutny serien, har Karin Slaughter udgivet en række andre kriminalromaner, hvilke blandt andet tæller serien om Will Trent, der bor den voldelige storby Atlanta. Man bliver hurtigt afhængig af Slaughters velskrevene bøger, der både er underholdende, uhyggelige og tankevækkende. Hendes forståelse for den menneskelige psyke, samt talent for at skabe voldsomme, nytænkende og blodige plots, gør hende til en af krimigenrens bedste forfattere. Karin Slaughters forfatterskab er for alle krimielskere, der godt kan lide at læse en velskrevet og gennemtænkt historie, fyldt med forbrydelser, mørke hemmeligheder og personlige intriger.
