Wie jemand hier diesen Roman "boring" finden kann....das spiegelt wohl eher eine Unfähigkeit, mit Geduld zu lesen, wider. Naja. Also: ein psychologisch und kriminalistisch absolut dichter Roman, mit hervorragend behandelten ethischen Fragen; alle Figuren sind durch einen erst einmal unsichtbaren Faden verbunden, aber Anne Holts Schreibkunst verwirrt nie. (Und ein schöner Kniff ist, ein Kapitel mit ein/zwei Wörtern des vorigen zu verbinden - wie eine musikalisch zwingende Überleitung, toll!) Ich habe ihn in der sehr guten englischen Übersetzung gelesen und hoffe, daß die deutsche ebenso passend erscheint.
I unfortunately found this story to be boring. There were loads of subplots, but I could not wait to finish the book.
Just started this one after reading two others in the Vik series. So far I am enjoying the character development. Having read all of the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo's etc. I think comparing Holt's style to his does not do her justice. While I really enjoyed all of the complex development of those books I actually enjoy the flow of Holt's stories. They are also less heartrendingly violent. Not to imply that the story lines are not serous just different in structuring of her story lines. Having viewed also the movies produced in both Europe then done through Hollywood I am curiously hoping Holt's Vik series is picked up and done with the same careful relationships development as these books.
I really enjoyed this book. The subject matter - hate crimes coming from religious fundamentalists - is very relevant today. I thought Ms Holt did an amazing job of describing the hate crimes occurring today and how they are organized.The story did jump round a lot and I had to keep checking to see "who" was telling the story - but over all a very good read!
This was quite good.Its her Vik & Stubo. I don't read her Hanne one.It was interesting,even tho Joanna is a very annoying character.
THIS AUTHOR IS SUPERB
This book was hard to get into and I had to force myself to finish it. Anne Holt is a good writer and I for the most part enjoy her books but I could do with less Johanne Vik and her oldest daughter and more of Adam Stubo. Johanne is a whiner and whatever is wrong with her daughter I wish they would find a cure. I like the parts with Adam though. Too bad he married her.
