A must read book! highly recommended
on 26 February 2013
To begin with, it is a highly recommended book - a mandatory reading book by the Norwegian Gunnar Staalesen. Though the plot is not complicated, it gradually turns out to be overwhelming, as it has to do with teen girls in prostitution, one of them found dead in a mountain. The author seems to know pretty well the youths' problems. He is not just revealing, page after page, who committed the crime, but importantly he reveals the vice and the (deadly) passion of certain people, the murderer's included.
The last pages are literally an overwhelming drama, totally unexpected.
The last pages reveal the author's pessimistic view on the dangers around youths - and that's the best thing in the book
Overall, definitely one of my favourite books.
