About a quarter of the book to go, and I'm wondering if the awkwardness of the prose is a Scandinavian thing or the residue of the translation. The writing is awfully stilted and antiseptic. Maybe I'm just not properly tuned in.

And I couldn't get tuned in. I finished but found myself skimming quite a lot near the end while the characters indulged in lengthy explanations about who did what to whom and why. On a par with late Henning Mankell. In fairness, I think I should try another Jo Nesbo book, maybe later in the series.
