My Thanks to Lynsey at Transworld for a review copy.
Doubleday; First Edition edition (15 Mar 2012)
My Review 3 stars ***
Leif GW Persson is an established Scandinavian crime fiction writer and his ability to weave together a complicated plot is well recognised in his native country. However, I struggled to read this book, due in part to the often disorganised narrative, which I felt was something lacking in translation rather than bad writing. It took me a while to fully understand all the nuances of the story, and had to flip backwards and forwards in order to make sense of the plot.
The over complexity of both the plot, and characters made this a difficult book for me to read and enjoy.
