Customer Review

on 10 January 2010
I don't really want to repeat what other reviewers have said. What I would like to add though, as an ex-professional translator, is how well this story was translated into English - by a Norwegian translator. Apparently the translator himself is of the wartime generation, having fought in the Norwegian Resistance, so he has some experience of the German Army in WW2. I found it especially interesting how he gave British Army equivalents some very specific German military designations, and how he conveyed the German flavour of the story so well.

There is always unfortunately great potential for a poor translation to ruin a good story, but in this case the translator has done the author proud.

All in all an excellent and enthralling story.
