"is different This one is a crime novel for people like me the "different This one is a crime novel for people like me the is of course ever present but there s MORE to the novel than just that And that makes Barbarotti a whole crime novel protagonist than I ve ever read before Plus of course I m having loads of fun with the way Nesser handles his language the irks of his storytelling and not least Barbarottis relationship with God I commented on someone elses review of this book here on GoodReads yesterday a person who found the ending of this book to be a desperate way out of a corner At that point I hadn t finished the novel and couldn t comment on the ending but now I have and I have to say I find it elegant and well in par with the rest of the book The only trouble right now is the last VERY LAST cliffhanger and I don t have the next The only trouble right now is the last VERY LAST cliffhanger and I don t have the next at hand gaspSo if you don t like crime novels but still want some easy entertaining reading do try H kan Nesser and do by all means try this one I have long been a fan of Hakan Nesser He is the first of several Scandinavian mystery writers that I began reading several years ago I read his works avidly along He is different though comparable to Jo Nesbo Henning Mankell Arnuldur Indridasson and Jussi Adler Olson This book and his new detective Barbarotti does not disappoint The mystery is well crafted and the end as far as I was concerned was a complete shockerI strongly recommend this book to any fan of mysteries and police procedurals and especially to those who are fans of the Scandinavian mystery genre Worth reading if you are looking for an easy read crime police thriller however I found the dialogue a little stilted and the ending was far fetched and disappointing Writing of the very highest alit.
