DET VAR SEKRETERAREN på den rättsmedicinska avdelningen som tog emot budet. Hon tog paketet under armen och bar in det. Stanken mötte henne först när hon rivit bort tejpen och öppnat kartongen. Hon hade just tagit emot och kvitterat ett mänskligt huvud.

I Memento mori får läsaren följa rättsläkaren Ella Andersson och hennes kollegor närde tillsammans med polisen försöker förstå den makabra försändelsen. Huvudet är van ställt av förruttnelse men kulan i skallen vittnar om en våldsam död. Medan polisen prioriterar identifieringen av huvudet riktar Ella istället sitt intresse mot den egna organ-isationen.

Ett nedlagt ärende väcker hennes uppmärksamhet och bakom den byråkratiska fasaden anar hon kopplingar till den organiserade brottsligheten. Ingen tycks längre vara utom deras räckhåll - inte ens den rättsmedicinska avdelningen som lamslås när det står klart vem huvudet tillhör

Memento mori är rättsläkare Elias Palms tredje och sista deckare om Ella Andersson efter Corpus delicti (2010) och Causa mortis (2011) och går att läsa helt fristående. Utgiven av Ordfront Ljud 2013.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicatte | 2/17/2014

    " Loved it. Can't wait to read more Muriel Sparks novels. This was my first one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ariadna73 | 1/25/2014

    " This is a book about elderly people. I love this author because she is in her eighties and she manages to write stories that relate to herself very well. I love the way she wraps up the stories tying up all knots in the last two pages. She did it in the other novel I read and she did in in this. Who cares; she is entertaining; refreshing and interesting. I loved this book and I will read many other novels by this very prolific lady. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent Legault | 1/17/2014

    " I love the English but this might have been just a bit too the English for my taste. Good fun, however. Humour at once dry and madcap. And more oldsters than you'll find in any other novel, I'd bet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aberlowitz | 12/14/2013

    " For a visceral portrait of early 20th century Edinburgh, this short memoir is a jewel. Otherwise, unless you are obsessed with the truth about Muriel Spark, it is not very interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Galen | 12/10/2013

    " Written in 1958, very interesting style of writing. A bit on the depressing side as it deals with a lot of elderly people and what happens to them (they die). A nice quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 12/5/2013

    " British novel set in the 50's about old people recieving phone calls about death. Understated humor, keenly defined characters, a lot of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephan Frank | 11/19/2013

    " Ouch - old age does not always come with being benign. Fun idea. Horrible (in the best sense of the word !) characters. May take the thorn out of growing older, hehehehe..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Bird | 11/15/2013

    " her best i`ve read so far "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Corey | 10/18/2013

    " Wickedly witty and still a profound meditation on aging and death. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paulette | 10/4/2013

    " Weird little book I found on the library shelf - staff recommends. Set in late 1950s among a group of elderly friends. Someone on the phone says, "Remember you must die," and rattles them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elsie Heyrman | 9/26/2013

    " Wonderful caustic sense of humor. I love her books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine Kington | 8/19/2013

    " Wittily written and a set up I've never read about before (old people and their vicious rivalries, wills and power play)which makes for an entertaining read. I don't think I got the best from this as I had a break (too long) in the middle so spent some time trying to figure things out again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivienne Strauss | 8/17/2013

    " A good read but it felt long and slow in parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theresa | 6/29/2013

    " Characters are caught by their own unique selves in their own particular circumstances. We create our lives. Things get resolved, or not. We die. A fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 5/6/2013

    " I am having a hard time getting into this one. It's weird and interesting...hope to get through it this month! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Magda | 4/28/2013

    " One of my favorite Muriel Spark novels. And I have read more than your average bear, okay? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marnie | 4/19/2013

    " I chuckled all the way through this book at the theatrics of the characters, keeping mindful that I, too, shall die one day as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 2/28/2013

    " Old British people get involved in a mystery regarding a prank caller! It's kind of interesting, if you like old British people. "
