"As a good wine he gets better as he gets older"
on 2 October 2015
Hiaasen is a total master of the genre. Mind you not too many guys target ecological crime writing as a career; so let us safely say that he is the most famous and best of all Norwegian-American ecological crime-writers ... there I have said it
The plot may be a tad thinner than usual here but it is all the more compensated by the fact that his writing style seems to be getting more and more tight and to the point through the years. I have read most of the earlier works and his prose on the page is now crisper tidier the images clearer and more HD than ever before; some writers like musicians lose their sharpness as time unfolds but not he; in the words of Lou Reed: "As a good wine he gets better as he gets older"
