The novel starts good, but...
I picked Kjell Eriksson because it came as a suggestion in an email. Having read some scandinavian authors, it seemed a good choice. Ericsson is a good writer but he goes TOO deep into the character's histories and the novel gets muddled.. too thick to read, too dense.. in the end it seems like the crime's web is broken, is confused, gets kind of lost among all the details of EVERY character. It's not that he lingers on the main ones, which would be reasonable, he does it with ALL of them... and it's too much.
Having read all of Mankell's Wallander Mysteries, I find his (Mankell's) style much delicate and concise, with the exact amount of personal data and personal silences, which makes the reading an lot richer, even when you do not know certain things, and with the exact amount of plot's details.
But I'll read another one, I want to give Eriksson another chance.
