Thought I would give the Scandinavian mysteries a break and try short stories, which usually feel less painful because they are short and you don't have to live with the characters for long. Although I have enjoyed Carlson's work in the past, this didn't appeal to me. I couldn't get past the awkward title (and that story) and found that nothing stood out for me. Carlson is a great writer but sometimes I feel he is too clever for his own good and devices such as odd character names and fancy turns of phrase get in the way of what could have been an interesting tale.
