Will not be seeking out further titles by the author.
The story itself is pretty good and some of the characters have depth to them. But the prose is pretty dreadful. If one of my teenaged sons had written this I'd be sending it back with criticism of repetition, spelling errors, and just poor use of language.
I don't know how it reads in the original so hard to say whether to blame Amundsen or his translator, but the publisher should be shot.
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.

Great read. Sohlberg is a good character and the story is well paced. I think the translation can be a little clunky in places, but did not spoil my enjoyment.Published 21 months ago by BLOB
