Strike8: The Charlotte Campbell Murder Mystery

In the literary world crafted by Robert Galbraith, readers are accustomed to intricate plots, complex characters, and mysteries that keep them on the edge of their seats. One such enigma unfolds in The Running Grave, where the death of Charlotte Campbell raises, for me, more questions than answers. While the official verdict may be suicide, a closer examination of the details surrounding her demise suggests that Charlotte’s fate is more likely the result of foul play.

In The Strange Death of Charlotte Campbell, Nick Jeffery puts forward the idea that the structure of the series, unresolved questions of Charlotte’s character, and cryptonymic clues suggest that she was murdered.

Am I the only Serious Striker that thinks Charlotte was murdered? Could she turn out to be Snape with her death having been her final sacrifice?

John Granger concurs and further suggests a list of suspects in Strike8: The Charlotte Campbell Murder Mystery. Looking at Rowling’s inspiration, her Lake subject matter that she forms via her Shed construction into the literature we love, John finds even more evidence that suicide as murder, or murder made to look like suicide will be link that joins the book 1-7 as we know it to the 8-10 finale.
