That is insulting to the reader and I have no idea why this book was an international bestseller. I did want to see some vengeance executed on the brother-in-law but I figured he was only going to get more noxious and he would get worse before better.
I prepared myself to be scared and freaked out by pincesa descriptions of horror that humans inflict on each other.
Everyone speaks like they are a sociopath, the victim is a ‘manic pixie dream girl’, and the chauvinism is just not necessary. Want to Read saving…. The author conveniently finds a will crumpled up in the evil family’s trash can what, shredders haven’t made it to Sweden yet?
They are either too skinny or too fat.
The love story fell flat. Great bodice-ripping prose lckgerg, Batman. This would have been moderately believable if Erica displayed any level of intelligence. I kept mentally correcting the sentences I read, I want to give up on this book so badly, but I feel guilty about stopping halfway through.
A bottle of wine each, he had four servings of dinner, and they made love Having finished the Larsson, Nesbo, Mankell, Fossum, and The Adler-Olsen series, I was looking for another Nordic series to read.
