Crime writer - Well, not really,
This review is from: Blackwater (Paperback)
I rate this book highly for reasons which have already been given by many other reviewers. I write this to address the very negative views expressed by some reviewers. Simply put, I think they have been sold a pup.
If you are, as I often am, looking for a straight-forward, shoot-from-the-hip who-dun-it, thriller, crime novel you look under the corresponding labels and you have a reasonable expectation to find something suitable. Ekman is not a crime writer. You might as well categorise Graham Greene, Ian McEwan, or A.L. Kennedy as crime writers. They have all written about crime but the resulting novels are not what is ordinarily considered as "crime novels".
A taxonomic problem, in other words.
