‘Another Love’ by Erzsebet Galgoczi was a mysterious trip into Hungary during the 1950s. Many of the main character’s experiences mirror the author’s life. There is a biography of the author in the back of the book.

While it reads like a mystery, it ends a bit abruptly and vaguely. In fact much of the book seems a bit vague and could have been fleshed out a bit more since it is quite brief.
The story and the setting is quite interesting, set in the 1950's Hungary. A lesbian journalist is killed while trying to cross the border. First Lieutenant Marosi is informed and realizes that he knows her in fact we find that he used to be in love with her. He takes a few weeks off to find what she was doing there.

I read this book years and years ago, in Swedish. Then I saw the film and kind of fell in love with it.
Re-reading the book now doesn't bring the film back, rather reminds of what terrible times those were for so many European countries. And at the moment I'd rather not think of politics!!

A very quick, readable novel that nonetheless creates a vivid portrait of Hungary in the 1950s. The detective story style made it more engaging than it would have been if told in a more straight forward manner.
