This review is from: The Quiet Girl (Hardcover)
Peter Hoeg returns to themes he explored in Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow in this bewilderingly fast-paced thriller set almost entirely in Copenhagen. Circus clown Kaspar Krone is on the trail of the abductors of KlaraMaria, the quiet girl of the title. The quiet girl is one of a group of children who (like Krone himself) appear to possess extraordinary abilities. But is everything as it seems ?
As in his previous work, Hoeg takes the thriller genre and weaves a compelling story that emerges piece by piece, while gently teasing the reader at the same time, forcing his audience to question how much of the tale is a smokescreen. This is a book that doesn't cease to surprise and challenge and deserves to be read at least twice.
