It was a very interesting book. The plot is fascinating and in the same league as Stieg Larsson: conspiracy and murder. I had trouble with the foreign language thrown in to the sentence. It really throws me off so I had trouble following the story when I have to stop and figure out why this word has been entered. Over all it was great!
I liked this second instalment of Kari's flawed and tortured life. He has past demons he can never really escape. The story is dark and even events that could be happy have a dark underbelly.
This is a poor representative of the genre of Scandanavian police novels. Thompson engages in rather coarse description of his subject matter, punctuates it with profanity and wraps that around a barely plausable story line. If you have a choice, choose Mankel, Nesbo, or Roslund among others.
In Thompson's great followup to Snow Angels, Kari Vaara has moved down to the big city and has got his hands full with a murder investigation, an investigation into a Finnish hero's possible connection to war crimes, a strange new partner, and some visiting in-laws from hell. On top of it all he is suffering from multiple after-affects from his previous investigation and some troubling health problems. All gets intertwined into nonstop action. Break out the Koskenkorva and hunker down by the fire for a great read.
