I was excited to read this book because I always like to read crime from different countries This one was slow and didn t really keep me on the edge For me it s very important in a book that it causes that wow I could have never imagined this to happen or that guy to be the murderer this one caused just kind of a shrug a bit of an anti climax that the murderer is found out just because he says he did itThe characters were shallow and unlikeable Usually in my opinion the main character should be somewhat likeable to the reader Even if heshe is a kind of an unpleasant person ie Amos Decker Carl M rck and Harry Hole you still start to like them and understand their motivation I am all for female detectives but Lotte was just annoying and I didn t get to know her as well as I would ve hoped Maybe the other books will help in that Will not read this series further and I didn t read the first book I am looking forward to exploring Dutch writers which are to my liking One star from the venue Amsterdam which is a fantastic city
