Hanne shines above Nordic gloom
on 27 December 2014
You need to pay careful attention to the twists and turns of this tale. Less Nordic gloom here though there are sub-plots that don't particularly add to the overall appeal. In any event, with one exception, when it comes to coping with the pressures of a busy professional and domestic life, Ms Wilhelmsen, the detective, is far better company than the inward-looking Ms Vik, the leading character in Anne Holt's other series. There's promotion ahead for this lady and after a breather, I'll happily tackle the next Hanne Wilhelmsen saga.
