"Last dance for love, it's my last chance." song lyrics


Written by one of the leading writers in Scandinavian literature, "Last Will" has investigative journalist Annika Bengtzon attending the ball that followed the Nobel Prize award ceremony.

Adding to the suspense, we witness events through Annika's eyes then trough the eyes of the killer.

Annika becomes a witness to the murder of Caroline von Behring, who is shot in the heart. Von Behring was the chair of the committee to select the prize for medicine and there doesn't appear to be any reason to kill her.

As a witness who came eye to eye with the killer, Annika can't wait to get back to the newspaper office but police place her on a disclosure ban. She's prohibited on reporting of what might have been the story of a lifetime in case she reveal something vital to solving the murder.

Also wounded in the shooting is an Israeli, Aaron Wiesel who shared the prize in medicine with an American. It was for their work in adopting stem cells for therapeutic cloning.

Frustrated in not being able to do her job, she is given time off from work but still tries to investigate things. She deals with a husband who doesn't seem to appreciate her and then in her inquiries, she becomes a target for the killer.

Markland has a talent for prose as we read the character's words and follow their actions, we get a clear picture of what the author intended in that segment of the story.  She creates a puzzle that the reader follows and emotionally join in Annika's search for the answers in this well developed plot.

Basically, we need to remember that it is just dance. While it might have elements not appropriate within modern society, it is only a very small part of that society. It can at times be more like acting, and it need not be an indication of how other parts of our lives should be played out.
