Just as good as "The Keeper" although you can see the outline of what it is all about fairly early. Our hero, Detective Carl Merck, is just as difficult for the rest of the Copenhagen police to deal with as previously. He's difficult for himself too! He plods on through another cold case, he knows the likely suspects as well as the reader but he has trouble starting. Slowly Carl takes a little bit of information from here and another from there, and then it all comes together. A "must" read, but I suggest tackling these books in order; this as #2. "Keeper" as #1.

Very well realized characters. Didn't want to miss a word of this one. It was a bit 'over the top' at times, but worth the time...
