The problem that I found permeates the previous Anne Holt books continued in this one. I find Ms. Holt's books to be superficial with almost a feeling of detraction/distance from any sort of storyline. Almost a feeling of "jumping around". In this release, I also felt that there was much more of "emotion" put into it which I really don't like in my Nordic Noir books. It almost makes them feel too Americanized.
