Not super impressed with book 1 in her Hanne Wilhelmsen murder mystery series, I — none the less — tried a second book.
Who stabbed Agnes Vestavik, fortysomething director of one of Norway’s few residential facilities for children, the Spring Sunshine Foster Home? Among the murder suspects is 12 year old Olav Håkonsen.
Holt’s a good writer but again I found the pacing of the very interesting plot too slow.
I started with Holt wanting to learn more about Norway. Through two books I learned nothing about her nation. It’s as if she deliberately keeps the setting generic.
It’s not Nordic noir.
I won’t read Holt again.
