This book #6 in the Detective Harry Hole series set in Oslo but it is important to read the earlier books in the series (especially The Redbreast, #3 in the series) BEFORE you read this one because of logical linkages among the books; as with the earlier books in the series, I give this book a 9.9 only because nothing is perfect and when the quality’s this high the reader one gets to nit pick; the flaw in this case being that from page 12 until page 30 or so there are frequent changes of place and character that are not too well signalled and therefore are rather difficult to follow; that small criticism aside, the book was well worth the 3 months spent on the library’s wait list to get a copy; there are many facets to the overall story, all handled well, and there are many surprises in store for the reader; very satisfying indeed.
