The Shadow In The Water - Inger Frimansson

Original Title: Skyggen i vannet

 

I like Scandinavian thrillers, so I'm always looking for new authors. This Swedish author was unknown to me, but I wanted to give her books a try, so I bought this novel.

 

I was disappointed. Like many Scandinavian books, the story is slow, which I normally don't mind at all, but in this case it is so slow, it just made the book very boring. I don't usually say this, but I was really bored reading this book.

 

The plot itself wasn't too special either, and the writing was OK to read, but it just couldn't keep my attention. I was so glad when I finally finished the book. I'm not planning to read more books by Inger Frimansson.

 

Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book.
