Blind Goddess by Anne Holt

I don’t recommend this book.

It sounded like it would be good. Award winning crime fiction author Anne Holt is a  lawyer and former Minister of Justice of Norway.

Like her Oslo police officer Hanne Wilhelmsen, Holt too is a lesbian.

She obviously writes what she knows.

Blind Goddess (1993) was her first book, not translated to English until many years later. Some say the translation is uninspired. I’m not inspired to read any other of her books.

She’s very popular in Norway. This book was turned into a TV-series in 1997.

About the only character of interest to me is Billy T, a hulking maverick drug squad investigator.

I learned nothing about Norway.

I read this book immediately after a similar murder mystery – In the Woods by Tana French.

Tana French is a much better writer.
