This book saved me a lot of time and money because it's so awful. If this is the epitome of modern Danish noir, as I've read, then I don't need to read any more of it. The writing is clunk and wooden; I don't know if that's true in the original, or just this translation. There's not a single likable character in the book, other than a few very minor players. Anna Belle is one of the most irritating protagonists I've ever read: her only emotion is anger, and her only mode of expression is screaming. The author wants you to think she is a good person underneath, but I can't see it. The detective doesn't actually solve the mystery! And the mysteries themselves are uninteresting and the solutions very unsatisfying.
