My main problem with the book is the characterisation of Max Romero. He belongs, like John Rebus and Kurt Wallander, to the school of idealistic detectives working for a greater social good within a police force that is not tolerant of his often individualistic behaviour, even when his hunches prove correct. The problem is that Romero, unlike the other two, appears to have no inner life. We get no sense of the turmoil that the conflict in his values causes for him. He appears to be friends with people involved in the green and anti-globalisation movements but it is hard to understand what generated these friendships and what keeps them going. Even more puzzling is the decision of the activist against domestic violence to meet him on her own; just why would a woman with her history be willing to meet with a police officer who seems to have difficulties with the boundaries between professional activity and sexual behaviour? Insight into his inner life would help us to appreciate the way he perceives his behaviour and how he resolves its contradictions. Hopefully, his inner life will be exposed to us in the third novel in this series.
