  1. I’m often wary about works from Nordic authors because I fear the prose might be somewhat heavy – and it’s certainly a misconception I should cure myself of… This novel sounds like the perfect way of changing my mind, and I particularly like your description of the character dynamic between the two detectives. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I will certainly be watching the show!! Hahaha I really will of course but your review really sells the book too. I admit that I have that fear too as many screenwriters don’t make for the best book writers. It sounds like he understands both formats so knows how to work them both. I admit I’m tempted to read it even though its brutal because of the swift POV switch and his easy adaptability.

    1. I look forward to seeing how it’ll translate as a TV series too. But I love how it worked out quite well as a book. The super short chapters was a huge change of pace to the long chapters from my usual fantasy books too! Hope you enjoy this story, in whichever form you decide to read it, Dani!
