I enjoyed this one way more than the other Harry Hole book I read. I don't even remember which other one I read. I am genuinely interested in reading the next one now. That being said, its still pretty standard crime fiction.

William S. Burroughs
“We will endeavor to halt the Industrial Revolution before it is too late, to regulate population at a reasonable point, to eventually replace quantitative money with qualitative money, to decentralize, to conserve resources. The Industrial Revolution is primarily a virus revolution, dedicated to controlled proliferation of identical objects and persons. You are making soap, you don't give a shit who buys your soap, the more the soapier. And you don't give a shit who makes it, who works in your factories. Just so they make soap.”
William S. Burroughs

Milan Kundera
“Just as someone in pain is linked by his groans to the present moment (and is entirely outside past and future), so someone bursting out in such ecstatic laughter is without memory and desire, for he is emitting his shout into the world's present moment and wishes to know only that.”
Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

Thomas Wolfe
“A stick is not only wood but the negation of wood. It is the meeting in space of wood and no-wood. A stick is finite and unextended wood, a fact determined by its own denial.”
Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel
