I give it 2.5 stars.

It started out well, I was enjoying it very much. I found Duluth and his wife very charming and fun to
read about but as the story unravelled it just overwhelmed me very much.

Overall, it was very confusing to me and I still don't really understand why the murderer did what he/she did. There wasn't a proper explanation but ideas thrown together. I did like the ending (meaning the last dialogue), it made me laugh.

Sadly, I don't think I'll want to read anything else from this a
