    1. This is a serious warning: don’t begin this book if you have a meal, a meeting or an urgent appointment any time soon. You won’t make it.This wonderful Swedish thriller begins with Daniel Brandt receiving a letter from his twin brother, Max. The brothers were brought up mainly apart, meeting only on their shared birthday, and Max’s bizarre behaviour in the past means that Daniel regards any contact with wariness. However Max is now in a Swiss clinic which is helping him manage his bi-polar [...]


    2. Meh! Primera decepción del año. Aunque la idea de dos hermanos gemelos que intercambian identidad no sea excesivamente original, la premisa inicial y la ambientación me parecieron muy prometedoras. Max se encuentra internado en una clínica de reposo situada en medio de los Alpes y necesita la ayuda de su hermano Daniel para poder salir a solucionar un asunto importante del que solo él se puede ocupar. Hasta aquí bien, pero cuando Max no vuelve como prometió esperas que pase algo, y me ref [...]


    3. Jag kommer att SAKNA den här boken! Jo, jag kan läsa den igen, men jag kommer att sakna att ha den oupptäckt.


    4. Have you ever read a book that makes you go what the fuck for most of it? But then you keep reading anyway?This is one of those books.It was odd. But not in a bad way. It was very different from everything I read. The closest thing I can compare it to is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo - but honestly, it's nothing like that book. I think I feel a resemblance because they're both thrillers that have been translated into English. (I also never made it through Larsson's book - it was boring to me). [...]


    5. Al in het begin maken we kennis met de broers Daniel en Max. De beide personages worden goed neergezet en zowel het verleden als het heden worden besproken. De broers zijn dan wel een eeneiige tweeling, maar hebben beide een andere identiteit. Het resultaat is een verhaal met een beklemmende sfeer waarin je meeleeft met Daniel die van plek heeft gewisseld met zijn broer Max, en nu alles op alles moet zetten om uit het Hemeldal te komen. Of je wilt of niet er eenmaal aan begonnen, moet je ondanks [...]


    6. solid 4 stars An extremely enjoyable plot, characters, and plot twists to keep a reader wanting more. I was really surprised how much I loved this book, despite its translation from Swedish to English, which sometimes led to unfamiliar sentence structure and language usage. Basic plot revolves around two twin brothers, one (Daniel) who lives in the U.S. and the other (Max) in a private Swiss psychiatric facility. When Daniel receives a letter from his brother asking him to visit him in Sweden, D [...]


    7. Nej den här är inte bra När jag läst lite insåg jag att jag påbörjat den tidigare men gav upp. Den här gången läste jag klart men borde sparat min tid och lagt bort den igen


    8. Dark. Psychological. Nearly every character a pathological liar. Like Alice in Wonderland in the real world, assuming the trippy aspects of Wonderland would grow dark and sinister in their transition to reality.Really good book. My only complaint is the anticlimactic ending. But everything leading up to the ending is edge-of-your-seat, deeply philosophical, intelligent, page turning stuff.


    9. Identical twins Max and Daniel were raised separately when Max was too reliant on his brother as a baby and wasn’t developing as a normal toddler should. Their parents ultimately divorced and one twin went with each parent. The brothers only saw each other once a year on their birthday, and the visits never went well since they twins were virtually strangers but were still drawn to each other. While Daniel lived a life being doted upon by his loving mother and soaking up books and history with [...]


    10. The back of THE DEVIL'S SANCTUARY says that it has the atmosphere of Shutter Island and the intensity of Jussi Adler-Olsen so I was expecting something well big.And for quite a while this was a fascinating scenario. Estranged identical twins, Daniel and Max, were parted by their parents separation when they were very young. Daniel had a fairly normal, if not slightly doted on upbringing by his mother and her parents, Max not quite as lucky staying with his distant father and raised mostly by a n [...]


    11. A good author knows how to catch your attention and draw you in with the first few paragraphs. I would not have bothered reading it based on the first few lines if it were a case of just me looking for a book to read. I did keep reading but it wasn't that enjoyable. The word choices and odd phrasing I could overlook as just differences in culture, however I just couldn't connect with the characters or get into the story. I kept shaking my head and counting how many pages were left to read. The i [...]


    12. ARC provided by NetGalley:This was a deliciously disturbing book for me. It's about twin brothers, Max and Daniel. Daniel is a normal kind of guy while Max is a disturbed individual currently residing in a psychiatric facility. When Daniel goes for a visit, he finds that his brother's facility is more like a luxury resort. Somehow, Max convinces his brother to trade places with him so he can supposedly "take care of some business" for a few days. And as you can probably predict, Max doesn't retu [...]


    13. Really 3.5 stars. This is a good thriller with a twist. When Daniel Brandt gets a letter from his twin brother Max to visit him at a private clinic, he decides it's worth going as he can spend some time holidaying in the area. However, as in all good thrillers, things do not go according to plan.Entertaining thriller, the only negative is that it slightly loses it's edge and it might have been better slightly shorter.


    14. En riktig bladvändare som är bra uppbyggd och både intressant och spännande. Slutet lämnar lite att önska och känns lite för enkelt från författarens sida. Känns som att hon bara var tvungen att avsluta boken och hon hade 10 sidor på sig. Synd på en annars väldigt trevlig berättelse.


    15. Good plot, good setting, good characters and well written, worth a read.My 2 stars is given to the movement of the plot: lethargic yet enthralling at the beginning then the climax.d that's it, the end.It felt like too much of a rush to the ending, miniscule detail, lack of scenes.


    16. Dramatic and chilling. I was kept guessing the entire time! On par with other thrillers like Gone Girl.


    17. Fascinating psychological thriller. The idea is simple. Twin brothers. One at a supposed medical retreat/spa type facility that treats varying degrees of mental illness. The other comes for a visit. The brother in the facility just wants to switch places for a few days so he can get some personal affairs in order and gain access to some money that wasn't so legally obtained. The other brother, Daniel, agrees thinking its only going to be for a few days. As the days stretch on, Daniel begins to r [...]


    18. I was thoroughly impressed by this novel. It took a while for me to get into it since it started a bit slowly, but when it picked up, I was HOOKED! After finding out what Himmelstal really was, I found myself constantly analyzing the other characters trying to figure out who could and could not be trusted. The more I learned, the more questions I had and the more eager I was to find out more information about the community and its residents. The twist at the end had me in shock and, once the tru [...]


    19. En oerhört spännande bok, handlingen var verkligen som aftonbladet så fint uttrycker sig ”rysningsframkallande bladvändare”. Alla vändningar i boken fick en att fantisera ut mängder av utfall. Under hela bokens gång spekulerar jag i ifall det verkligen hade fungerat att ha ett sådant fritt och lyxig fängelsefilial. Bara att de har råd att täcka ett sådant stort område för ett fängelse är ganska osannolikt. Speciellt på en sådan attraktiv plats. Jag kommer absolut diskturera [...]


    20. Asi jsem očekávala moc. Lákadla opět udělala své a já se nemohla dočkat, až ji budu držet v ruce. Ve finále jsem přečetla příběh celkem průměrný bez špetky napětí. Musím nechat, že představa, kdy vás požadují za někoho jiného a nemůžete dokázat pravý opak je celkem nesnesitelná. Přesto si myslím, že je kniha více než přeceňovaná a thriller to rozhodně není. Často opakující fráze mi také četbu neusnadnily stejně tak jako font a velikost písma. [...]


    21. The premise of the book was unusual and potentially a lot more interesting than it turned out to be. It ended up being a little too far-fetched, in my opinion, and had a very unsatisfying ending. I found myself just wishing it would be over!



    22. I love slow-motion, claustrophobic thrillers that ratchet up tension gradually instead of starting up with a bang and piling up bodies every time the plot hits a snag. If you share my preferences, this book is for you. And as a bonus, it has a very interesting discussion of posthumanism at the end. I can't say more for fear of revealing the solution but it is worth reading through the weird tribulations of the main character to get to it. Also if you are an only child (like me), having read the [...]


    23. Ob Marie Hermanson sich auf den Zauberberg-Effekt verlassen hat? Ihr Ich-Erzähler reist aus Schweden in die Schweiz, um seinen Bruder in einer psychiatrischen Klinik zu besuchen. Leider nimmt der junge Mann während der dreistündigen Autofahrt von Zürich nach Himmelstal kaum etwas von seiner Umgebung wahr und die Aussicht "entspricht dem, was ein Tourist in den Alpen erwartet." (S. 28) Aha. Der Beginn des Buches, das als atemberaubender Psychothriller beworben wird, wirkte auf mich zunächst [...]


    24. Als ich von dem Buch Himmelstal gelesen habe, war ich direkt hin und weg. Die Idee, dass sich zwei Zwillingsbrüder austauschen und einer in Himmelstal, einer angeblichen Privatklinik für reiche Menschen mit Burnout & Co, feststeckt, hat mich gereitzt. Leider kann ich jetzt schon sagen, dass das Buch meine Erwartungen wirklich nicht erfüllt hat. Ich habe mich durchgekämpft und immer auf eine Wendung gehofft, welche nicht eingetreten ist.Meine Meinung:Ich beginne mal mit dem Punkt, der die [...]


    25. Daniel receives a letter from his identical twin brother Max. They had never gotten along so well during their childhood and had grown up separated, Daniel with their mother and Max with their father. The boys met once a year, on their shared birthday and everyone in the family agreed that once a year was more than enough.Now, all grown up, parents gone, and for the first time in what seems like forever, they are to meet again. Max had invited Daniel to his luxurious rehabilitation clinic, all e [...]


    26. Marie Hermanson har aldrig gjort mig besviken! Även denna gång har hon byggt upp en spännande historia om något osannolikt, som verkar mycket sannolikt när Marie beskriver det.Det kryper i mig av olust när jag förstår att allt inte står rätt till i Himmelsdalen. En plats i Schweiz dit människor med psykiska problem tar sin tillflykt.Daniel från Sverige kommer dit för att besöka sin tvillingbror Max. När han väl är där ber Max Daniel byta plats med honom. Max behöver hämta pen [...]


    27. Marie Hermanson (born 1956) is a Swedish writer and journalist who has written several intriguing novels with a surrealistic touch. As far as I know, her earlier novels have not been translated into English, but this one has. The Swedish title is Himmelsdalen – ‘Paradise Valley’ – but in English it has been named The Devil’s Sanctuary. This in itself I think reflects the duality at the very core of this psychological thriller: The difficulty (sometimes) of deciding what is what, what i [...]


    28. Jag gillar Hermansson. Hon skriver om vardag och verklighet balanserande mot fantastik och galenskap. Himmelsdalen handlar om två bröder, separeradeci tidig ålder. Båda beter sig destruktivt när de träffas, men huvudpersonen, berättaren har styrfart på sitt liv, det har inte brorsan. Man anar diagnoser. Så vill den destruktive brorsan att de skall byta plats, kan berättaren stanna kvar på vilohemmet i den isolerade alpdalen medan affärer ska klaras upp. Mot sin egen magkänslan stann [...]


    29. The Devil's Sanctuary was a great book that kept you on your toes. Although the book was very good cover to cover the ending wasn't what I expected, you could even say I found it disappointing. Throughout the book Daniel is trying to get someone, or anyone, to believe him that he is not his psychopathic twin brother, Max. Finally a clinic psychiatrist tells Daniel he has believed him all along, and actually planned the switch between Max and Daniel. Dr. Fisher wanted to study Daniel and how his [...]
