Kathryn | 67 comments 2. The Boston Globe wrote "This is a dark, haunting novel, with a protagonist who searches for a murderer and finds his own humanity. The emotionally wrought ending caught me off guard and touched me in a way that few mystery novels do." Any comments?

Fiona Stevenson (feyona13) | 11 comments I felt like the characters were a little flat for me. I wasn't surprised or disturbed at all (maybe that says more about my twisted mind than the book). The relationship with the daughter didn't quite seem real to me. It went too quickly from storm to calm. I can't say I was "touched" by this book. It was a fun quick read that didn't leave me with much of an impression at all.

Kathryn | 67 comments I thought the ending where Erlender asks to name Eva Lind's baby Audur tied back nicely to the first long honest discussion (pg. 229) he has with Eva Lind. I didn't remember this from when I first read it a few months ago, but I reread parts and noticed it.
