This is one of the few occasions where I think that I liked the screen adaptation better than the book itself. I have to admit I saw the Netflix series first, which sort of spoiled all the plot-twists in there, but I also found Joe's voice in this one more annoying.
Sure, in the beginning there was some fun seeing Joe pointing out what is wrong with everyone he meets while blatantly missing the fact that he is the most messed up of them all. But this did get old rather quick. I still have Hidden Bodies to read, so I hope the second season deviated more from the books.
