    1. Galiba ilk defa bir kitaba iki puan veriyorum ama gerçekten hak etti. Görüşüme gelirsek;Kitabı hemen size bir kaç kelimeyle özetleyeyim Vaşak, Doğalgaz boru hattı, Rusya, Finliler ve Anita.Evet işte bu kadar. Baş karakterimiz vaşaklarla kafayı bozmuş bir durumda. İki kelimesinden biri vaşak. Başkarakter Hilja'nın hayal gücünün oldukça geniş olduğunu eklemem gerek. Kitap polisiye/gerilim kategorisinde galiba ama gerilimi bırak polisiye desem mi demesem mi bilemedim. Kit [...]

    2. noranydroptoread/2015/04/2After reading Lehtolainen's SNOW WOMAN, I was excited to read this book, the first in a trilogy about bodyguard Hilja Ilveskero, who according to the blurb "rarely loses her cool" promptly loses her cool when her current employer, a wealthy Finnish woman, insists on buying a lynx fur coat. Lynx clearly have special meaning for Ilveskero, but it will be many, many pages before we find out what that is, which is odd, because the book is written in first person. When this [...]

    3. I really like Leena Lehtolainen's book The Bodyguard. So much, that this book was a winner to me. It had Lynx in it, we found one frozen to death in a log cabin in northern Minnesota. I relate to her there were a lot of Finnish up there also.

    4. Leena Lehtolainen is a Finnish author, best known for her series featuring Policewoman Maria Kallio. THE BODYGUARD is the first in a new trilogy, featuring bodyguard Hilja Ilveskero. According to her website:"The underlying theme of the trilogy is a series of questions about identity and concealment. Who is each person really? What disguise is each person using? What does it mean to be family? What language does each person speak and understand, and what is each person’s secret language? Finni [...]

    5. ***Won in a GoodReads First Reads giveaway***Things just did not connect with this story. Really a 1 Star sort of book, I give it 2 because it is translated from a Finnish author and as such the locales described are of Finland and Russia, and written from a Finnish point of viewI thought that was at least a change of pace for me.However, the story was just blah. It reminded me of watching Quantum of Solace and finding out the bad guy was stealing waterally? Similarly here, it is all a debate ov [...]

    6. J'ai été très surprise par ce roman. La collection Black Moon thriller est encore récente et je pensais qu'il s'agissait de romans pour les jeunes adultes, comme les titres fantastique. Ce n'est pas le cas car Le Lynx est plutôt destiné à un public adulte puisqu'il n'est pas question ici d'une lycéenne qui mène l'enquête mais d'une garde du corps qui recherche l'assassin de son ex-employeur.N'étant pas une grande lectrice de thriller, j'ai eu envie de le découvrir ce roman car son ti [...]

    7. (I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)As a professional bodyguard, Hilja Ilveskero rarely loses her cool. But one day, she and a client have an argument in a Moscow fur salon, and Hilja quits on the spot. When the client turns up dead, Hilja quickly discovers that she is a suspect. In an attempt to clear her name and find the killer, she uncovers ever-deeper layers of subterfuge. Amid all the covert treachery and intrigue, Hilja finds herself fall [...]

    8. Liikaa ilveksiä. Aivan liikaa viittauksia Queensin henkivartijakouluun. Paikoin kömpelöä kieltä. Kiihkeää seksiä tyypin kanssa, jonka suhteen henkivartijan piti muka olla erityisen varuillaan. Epäuskottava ja sotkuinen juoni, jossa pieneen Suomeen oli tuotu Venäjältä kaikkea jännää kansainvälistä. Meni kuitenkin äänikirjana muiden askareiden lomassa. Muistelin, että Lehtolainen kirjoittaisi paremmin.

    9. Not as good as the Maria Kallo books by the same author, but an ok read. Don't think the translation is as well done as the other books either.

    10. Tämä arvostelu tulee sisältämään runsaasti spoilereita. Jos et ole lukenut tätä kirjaa, suositellen että et lue arvosteluani. Tai tarkemmin ajatellen, ehkä kannattaa kuitenkin lukea tämä arvostelu mieluummin kuin kirja.Yleensä olen pitänyt Leena Lehtolaisen kirjoista, ja olen lukenut varmaan ne kaikki. Ihan suurilla odotuksilla tätäkin sitten aloitin. Pettymys oli aika paha.Kirja kertoo naispuolisesta henkivartijasta, Hilja Ilveskerosta, joka lapsellisen pikaistumisen vuoksi eroa [...]

    11. THE BODYGUARD introduces a new possible series to readers of Leena Lehtolainen 's Maria Kallio. It is the story of a strong spirited woman working as a bodyguard for a rich ruthless self absorbed female real estate mogul. When her employer decides on a whim to purchase a lynx fur coat, our protagonist quits on the spot (her motivation is later explained ). When her former employer shortly after turns up murdered, the bodyguard is on the move, one step ahead of the police that suspect she may hav [...]

    12. The Bodyguard (The Bodyguard series Book 1) by Leena Lehtolainen I am not sure, if it is the translation from Finnish to English that is making this book so difficult for me to read and enjoy, or if it just not that well written in the first place. I normally love books that are set (well at least to me) in exotic places, but this book is not doing it for me. This book is written in first person and for a mystery, that is normally a very good thing, but getting and staying inside of Hilja Ilvesk [...]

    14. Lehtolainen osaa luoda kiinnostavia henkilöhahmoja, joiden kautta hän kertoo pieniä, julmia tarinoita yhteiskunnastamme. Henkivartijassa päähenkilö Hilja jaksaa kantaa romaania kohtuullisen pitkälle pelkällä persoonallaan, mutta juoni ja stereotyyppiset romanssikuviot kaatavat lopulta hänetkin. Olin hiukan pettynyt Pahan Venäläisen kuvaan, jota suomalaiset dekkaristit ryöstöviljelevät talvisodan jälkihekumassaan.Ilvesviittauksetkaan eivät pelasta edes kissafanin silmissä.

    15. Tämä oli huonoin lukemani kirja pitkään aikaan. Lehtolaisen ja minun suhde päättyi joskus seitsemännen Maria Kallio -romaanin tienoilla. Nyt sain kirjakaupan ystävämyynnistä lahjaksi tämän sarjan kaksi viimeistä osaa, joten piti tietysti lainata tämä ensimmäinen aluksi. Hohhoijaa. Kökkö tarina, töksähtelevä kerronta ja vaivaannuttavia sanavalintoja. Jaksankohan lukea kaksi muuta? Ehkä joskus tulevaisuudessa, kun tulee taas semmoinen työviikko ettei aivoissa ole kapasiteett [...]

    16. Ei ollut mun lemppari Lehtolainen. Tykkän hänen vahvoista naisistaan, mutta tämä oli jotenkin vähän naurettava koko tarina, vaikka dekkareista yleensä pidänkin. Ilves-hommasta tykkäsin, sekä Jari-enosta, mutta kaksoisagentti-tappajajutut jotenkin vain tuntuivat tyhmiltä.

    17. 3.5 stars. Overall I thought this was a good book, although the first half of the book moves very slowly and the plot is a bit improbable. Unfortunately, most of this author's work has not been translated although the second book in this series is due in June 2015.

    18. A terrific read. Not as conventional as the average crime novel. Not the story and not the main character. Maybe it is a little overdone at times, but I thought it a really good read, it kept me captivated.

    19. Eine coole neue Figur, diese Hilja! Die Geschichte fand ich allerdings etwas verworren und manche Szenen (die bei Paskewitsch und die letzte romantische Szene) etwas unglaubwürdig. Letztlich verpufft dann auch die Spannung am Ende.

    20. I just couldn't go on. I belong to a bunch of book groups and this was going to be one of the books I read in a break between "assigned" books. It wasn't as much fun as I had hoped and the fun pile is high and I am old, and I don't have the time or inclination to continue this one.

    21. Kiva, helppolukuinen dekkari. Piti kiinni kirjassa alusta loppuun. Kopparnäsin luontoa kuvattu hyvin. Mielenkiintoinen teos.

    22. I couldn't put this book down Well written with a believable main character as well well as other characters. I am looking forward to more by Leena Lehtolainen.

    23. Mielenkiintoinen uusi aluevaltaus Lehtolaiselta. Kansainvälistä kauppaa, ripaus politiikkaa, uhkauksia, sieppauksia Päähenkilö on hieman erikoinen, mikä jo häiritsi lukukokemustani.
