Read this years ago... it came up in a list of someone's books and I realized I'd not listed.

The things I remember - Per Petterson has a quiet quality to his writing that reads fast. The book has the affect of watching a foreign film, ie. you must pay attention, it shall not all be fed to you.
Upon finishing...the story may follow you around a bit. It was three days later, when I awoke from a dream and had the ah-ha moment. (perhaps other readers had a quick epiphany and I'm slow). No mater, the slow reveal made it that much more. ~
