Very good! I do have a couple of reasons for not giving it 5 stars, however. 1) Too long! I did appreciate a lot of the detail, but it just became cumbersome. The inventory of things bought at IKEA, every detail of the police investigator's lives - it was just a little too much! 2) While I thouroughly enjoyed it, not quite as good as the first book. 3) Continuation at the end - you do get some resolution, but a lot is left hanging. 4) Way too many characters. With all of the Sweedish names, I had some trouble keeping everyone straight. I will say that I enjoy the characters, and think they're very well developed - perhaps a little too well. I'm already starting on the 3rd book!
