I am not impressed with this snow-bound Norwegian mountain hotel mystery packed with stereotypical characters and a languishing plot line. Likely with a view to film or mini-series casting, the narrator and self-appointed chief investigator is a good-looking wheel-chair bound curmudgeonly lesbian who is aided by a miniscule medical man. The only new element is a suggestion that the crimes must be solved not with intuition alone but also with access to modern information techniques.

Elizabeth Did not like it at all. Where is the old scarey Anne Holt?

Susan Yes. As if she were doing a student exercise one-upping Agatha Christie.
