Inspector Gunnarstranda of the Oslo Police, middle aged, widowed and cynical, and his younger 2, Frank Frolich, are entertaining, unique and believable One of the best teams in the genre I ve read in a long time This is technically a prequel to Dahl s previous books with this same team as far as I know Written in first person with biting insights that, to author K O Dahl s credit, give this novel a leg up on the rest of the Nordic Noir writers Along with a small apartment in the Capital, Inspector Gunnarstranda of the Oslo Police, middle aged, widowed and cynical, and his younger 2, Frank Frolich, are entertaining, unique and believable One of the best teams in the genre I ve read in a long time This is technically a prequel to Dahl s previous books with this same team as far as I know Written in first person with biting insights that, to author K O Dahl s credit, give this novel a leg up on the rest of the Nordic Noir writers Along with a small apartment in the Capital, Gunnarstranda owns a cabin in the woods an hour or two out of Oslo His wife got sick and died a couple of years prior to the setting of the novel early mid 90 s The cabin and it s garden was his wife s, and is now the Inspector s, passion He doesn t get to spend much time at his refuge due to his round t
This is a book I wanted to read but was slow getting down to read it.This a Police procedural with a couple of forgettable detectives, Gunnarstranda and Fr lich Not as engrossing asmodern reads but part of the wider genre so worth a read However,the Sj wall Wahl s Martin Beck Police Mystery series is closer to this novel and that is where the comparison ends This book has a reasonable plot but the author losing it in the telling The reader is as much in the dark as the investigators This is a book I wanted to read but was slow getting down to read it.This a Police procedural with a couple of forgettable detectives, Gunnarstranda and Fr lich Not as engrossing asmodern reads but part of the wider genre so worth a read

It may be the translator but the beginning was rough to read It had nice concepts and it was a good plot but it didn t have the staying power to keep you reading.

Only okayI had a hard time getting into this one I found myself putting it down and picking it up a week later which is not normally the case with crime novels and definitely made the plot unnecessarily hard to follow.
