Read in May, 2009

The 3 stars are the result of 4 stars for plot and some interesting ideas, and 2 stars for lame writing. Sometime I wonder if mystery writers think that their readers are completely stupid, or won't follow the character development or the plot if it is not made pedantically explicit. The protagonist of the story, Swedish police detective Irene Huss, is a nice change from middle-aged semi-alcoholic men who seem to populate so many of today's mysteries. Her life and her experiences ring true, but the book is bogged down with too much telling and not enough showing.
