Another great read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woman with a Birthmark: Van Veeteren Mysteries Book 4 (The Van Veeteren Series) (Kindle Edition)
I loved Stieg Larsson and his Millenium Trilogy and I cannot ever see any mystery/thrillers coming anywhere near as close for brilliant, compulsive reading but Hakan Nesser has done an extremely fine job with the great Chief Inspector Van Veeteren.
This is the fourth in the series and the pace never lets up at all. I love reading about the police investigation and how VV reaches his conclusions. I like Hakan Nesser's style of writing too.
I know this book has received mixed reviews, which I have only just read on finishing it, but I can honestly highly recommend it if you like a no nonsense police investigation with twists and turns. Please bear in mind that this is a work of fiction and all the nit picking reviews of place names etc, should be overlooked; Hakan Nesser has purposely done this, it is not an error. We live in a troubled world and a little escapism is essential.
