1.0 out of 5 stars Worst Reading Ever!, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sohlberg and the Gift: an Inspector Sohlberg mystery (Inspector Sohlberg Mysteries Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
These two books by Jens Amundsen are amongst the worst I've ever read. I thought that the first was an aberration of some sort - badly written, poorly plotted and with stereotypical and badly drawn characters with whom it was impossible to identify in any way.
The only reason I started the second was that I had bought both at once in order to have back-up holiday reading.
As soon as I began, I realised what a mistake I had made and, reckoning that life is too short I stopped after three pages. This one was even more sexist, racist, elitist and any other 'ist' you can think of than the previous one and so, reckoning that life is too short, I stopped reading after one chapter.
Since then I have warned anyone I know to avoid this author like the plague. He gives Nordic noir a bad name, but has taught me a valuable lesson insofar as I will know never again to type such a broad category into the search engine as I may end up with stinkers like these.
