Mir persönlich hat das Buch zu viele Handlungsstränge und man verliert sich etwas bei der Vielzahl der Personen.

Nothing like picking up a book that is the final in a series of six. Saves reading the previous books. Here the chief of Police Sleizner is still up to no good ( I am assuming he has been and getting away with it in the previous books) and now is once again being tracked by his arch enemy Dunja Hougaard, an ex police officer. She is set up in a boat house with top of the range electronic equipment listening in and watching him waiting for a mis-step. And of course it does come.

Not far a way, two bodies are found in the water by a reluctant kayaker, one shot in the head and the other strangled. The difficulty is that the person shot is Mogens Klinge, head of Special Services and far too important to be found dead. At every stage of the investigation, Sleizner intercedes and twists and turns it so that it is facing in the wrong direction. Of course, this can't go on for ever but there are a fair few deaths before we get to that point.

It's quite a long book so I found myself jumping a middle section where I got bogged down and felt that the book wasn't moving on very fast.

The story had just enough to engage me and to make it a fun read, a little breather if you like, before I go back to the books that make me think a little bit harder. This one serves it up on a plate for you.

Having read the other two books in this series I had high hopes for this one but sadly I didn’t find this one to be quite as good as its predecessors and it took me almost a week to finish, whereas the others only took days to read.

I don’t know if it was because the format of the writing structure changed slightly or that it was due to the fact this one is more of a slow burner I’m not sure. But saying all that I would still read this one again!

The book has 2 storylines running through it which at first seem completely unrelated but as you get deeper into the book lines started to become crossed. When a homeless man is brutally beaten to death, Dunja can’t stop herself from starting an investigation of her own. Before long the clues take her to Sweden and Helsingborg, where Risk is investigating the peculiar case of the frozen millionaire.

Risk’s family play a big part of this one and it certainly takes the story down a path I wasn’t expecting! Fabian’s young daughter explores the supernatural with the help of a friend and Ouija board whilst his son finds himself entangled in a group of youths playing their own version of happy slapping. Onto of that Risk’s marriage seems to be coming to an end as his wife Sonja is commissioned by a wealthy art collector to produce an installation for his home.

All in all this book has a lot going on, all separate but interconnecting in a rather unique way. As i said earlier it is a fairly slow burner of a book but it is worth a read.

It can be read as a stand alone novel but I would recommend reading the other 2 books as it fills in the details of the bits of back story that come up but there are enough details for this to all make sense by itself.

It ends with a few unanswered questions which I am hoping will all be answered in his next book. I cant wait to see what the future holds for Fabian, the Risk family and Dunja.
