A Wallender replacement
»
»
Jo Nesbo gives a new Norwegian detective to all the Kurt Wallender fans. A good read and typical Norwegian (read Henning Mankell) style.
An excellent account of one diplomatic family in the midst of Hitler gaining power. One man with a boring personality but an insight for the future that would have helped us avoid much future misery. Our government doesn't come thru looking very good.
A summer read

A detective/mystery with no real clues as to how conclusions were reached and an ending leaving much in the realm of the reader's i;magination
A slow depressing read

The detective always seemed to be in a wild goose chase without success. The "bad guy" always seemed 2 steps ahead. Even though the ending helped, the book didn't rate the accolades of the other authors on the back of the book jacket.
Beaumont is back

Aging knees and all, Jance has brought Beaumont back to solve a multiple crime. Let's hope that with his kknee operation we can enjoy a few more of his exploits.
