I have enjoyed some of Edwardson's books, but I didn't think this was his best. In fact I thought it a bit silly and pointless.

As with many books there are two stories going on at once and both of these manage to be not up to Edwardson's usual standard. I thought the writer was trying to be a little too mysterious instead of writing a good crime thriller. The main story follows a fisherman who dissapeared during the second world war. This part of the story isn't fully explained and remains rather unsatisfying.

The second story follows a young lady suffering abuse, but who is the abuser? It's not that much of a mystery actually.

Ultimately, rather disappointing.

This a is a turgid confused example of a book for which the author could not decide what genre it is in. It switchs abruptly from scandanavian detective to a travel brochure on Scotland and then into apparently some metaphysical musings by people whose identity at times is hard to detect. You can read it as penance for past sins but not for enjoyment.

I think I started my love affair with Ake Edwardson by stumbling upon Dectective Winter - you won't be disappointed...

I bought a book by this chap in Tesco and then downloaded the rest onto my kindle. I love the scandinavian authors and the recent tv programmes are also great.
