A host of characters and their personal problems contribute to provide a riveting mystery. A most enjoyable read.

Really bad. This book saved me a lot of time and money because it's so awful. If this is the epitome of modern Danish noir, as I've read, then I don't need to read any more of it. The writing is clunk and wooden; I don't know if that's true in the original, or just this translation. There's not a single likable character in the book, other than a few very minor players. Anna Belle is one of the most irritating protagonists I've ever read: her only emotion is anger, and her only mode of expression is screaming. The author wants you to think she is a good person underneath, but I can't see it. The detective doesn't actually solve the mystery! And the mysteries themselves are uninteresting and the solutions very unsatisfying.

Editing poorly for American reader. Bounces from character to character with no seeming connection. And of course scandinavian towns and names are odd to our thought process

A very unusual and literary book! Written by someone with great passion in paleontology, which is infectious!

Maybe this was just a bad translation, but I was really disappointed in this book. The Washington Post gave it a glowing review so I bought it--the discussions science theories were interesting, though.
