And intelligent this novel was Prominent men die shortly after their dogs are found hung and a former elite soldier ends up being a suspect and a somewhat unwilling aide to the police The premise isn t the most original but the story that unravels along the way is political and surprisingly about caring about women than ou d think Yes women are mostly extras on this one save for Margethe Franck who then actually has a decent backstory and while she is somewhat Lisbeth Salander ish she is a good character The main character Niels Oxen is a hard one to like A former soldier with ghosts in his life than real people isn t pleasant and mostly looks out for himself And et there is something about him I liked the ending here a lot not answering the uestions that are asked but leaving a lot to interpretation uite liked how this discusses power but was a bit bored by the only men can have power and rule organizations aspect This was a slow book in the start and it took me something like 100 pages to get into the story but once I did it was an enthralling read I absolutely love this character Niels is a veteran living like a homeless His attitude reminds me a little of Jack Reacher but the rest is uite different The first book kicks off the Oxen saga with a style and I m uite sure that I ll read every single one of them Storyline was absolutely awesome Not the best crime the suspense wasn t there all the time For the reader it s had to feel anything about the main character but I liked the unexpected twists the story had in the end Not sure if I ll read the follow ups 35 star.
