** spoiler alert ** The first hundred or so pages felt really slow to me. I started reading this book weeks ago, put it down, and didn't feel the urge to pick it back up right away.

Then I grabbed it for something to read during lunch, and I couldn't put it back down. I just got hooked back in.

The only thing I think was missing from this book's windup was the lack of interest in Lisabeth's twin. She gets mentioned in every single book, but she never makes an appearance. I thought for sure when Zalachenco's will was divided she would make some sort of appearance, but she never did. It makes me wonder of Larsen was really done with the trilogy when he turned it in, or if he was planning more when he died unexpectedly. It seems unlike his style to leave a detail like this hanging, when he's so descriptive, and seems to tie up everything else neatly with a bow (unless I forgot stuff from earlier books that didn't get resolved, which is entirely possible.
