Interesting mixture of domestic life, police and criminal activities. We learned about the affect of Nazi occupation of Norway and neutral Sweden and how past events affected lives in the present. A good read.

  1. Review by Alton Library – Thursday Group
    Interesting and promoted lots of discussion. Opened up new thoughts on the occupation of Scandinavia. Lots of smaller, integrated mysteries. Generally a positive response, even though it would not have been a first choice in terms of personal selection for some.
