review 1: It took two weeks for me to finish the first in this series. The second in the series took me two days. The same fascinating characters show up in the second, but the perspective is slightly different.

In addition, the lead character, Hanne Wilhelmsen, is incredibly cool.

What works, Hanne is a real person, not a cartoon, the crime is awful and while common, the horror of it is very real. less

def liked this the one the best of the three books i've read by her so far
Still not as good as 1222 but her earlier works are okay.
Excellent ... I really enjoy how Anne Holt spins a tale.
A reasonably well written police procedural.
