really liked it
Read in December, 2008

I enjoyed this a great deal, especially once I had gotten absorbed into Karin Fossum's world and prose. This is the second book translated from Norwegian that I've read this year (the first was "Out Stealing Horses") and based on this small sample it seems like there's such a distinctive Norwegianness to the writing. The sentence structure, the way people speak and respond.

I appreciate the way in which the book ends up being not so much about the murder, but about the ways in which people have been changed by it, and especially the way in which Gunder Jomann makes something so lasting and positive in his life.
