Read in July, 2012

To say I had a love-hate relationship with this book is a huge understatement.

With a plot that relentlessly jumped from one aspect/character to another, I became increasingly frustrated at how difficult I found this to follow.

Not only overly long and rambling I also found this a difficult and disturbing read due to certain elements that though thankfully not too protracted I personally found way too violent and unnecessarily graphic.

Main character Harry Hole I however found fascinating and intriguing in equal measures. Seemingly gritty and determined, I loved that he had a vulnerable side and that he was fighting personal demons of his own.

The 4th book in the series, I'm pretty sure reading the previous books would have contributed to my enjoyment of this one though it would perhaps have been nice to have followed Harry's story from the beginning.
