Hmm I bought this cheap from a charity shop because I'd heard of Nesser as one of the famous Nordic Crime authors and wanted like I have with Jones Bo Mankell Adler Olsson Lackberg etc to give him a try I'm not sure whether this was representative of the rest of his oeuvre but if it is I'm probably going to steer clear in futureThere was nothing particularly terrible about this book Van Veeteren solving an old mystery from his hospital bed whilst convalescing and yes weirdly I made the Josephine Tey connection at about the same time that the author acknowledged it in the plot after a convicted double murderer is found dead himself The plot was OK the pace decent the prose perfectly readable with a few little witty moments but it just felt slightly formulaic blunted by the translation and not always easy to follow My main problem was not feeling particularly inclined to identify with or care about the mainly unpleasant chauvinist male detectives at the centre of the story The general impression was that all the men in the story were grizzled cynics and all the women were bitter slags So it was readable and reasonable entertainment but a bit 'off'

I've been reading a lot of Scandinavian mystery novels recently who knew there were enough of them to constitute an actual genre but this wasn't one of my favoritesI had a hard time keeping track of all of the people in the book which wasn't entirely necessary but distracted me all the same because none of them really had any characteristics beyond detective witness victim I'm sure this would be easier if I followed the whole series through thoughI also found the jumps from one time period to another to be a bit confusing; this probably tied in with my inability to keep track of the characters I often had to go back and try to confirm dates piece together a timeline again etcThis didn't uite fit the bill as the vacation reading that I was looking for largely because it didn't suck me in and pull me along as much as I expect from books I intend to read on a plane The story was interesting but I never really got into it
