I reviewed this book in April, but as it has just been released in Britain, I will briefly remind my readers of Anne Holt´s fine series featuring Adam Stubo and Johanne Vik. I have enjoyed meeting Adam Stubo in all three books, but his wife´s behaviour has annoyed me somewhat because I think it is unlikely that any FBI profiler would be such a wimp. The third book is better in this respect: Johanne Vik finally shows some guts.
The story is also relevant, because a newly-elected American president visits Scandinavia. I sincerely hope President Barack Obama´s visit will be less dramatic, however!
Another amusing detail: Johanne Vik had expected the USA “… would elect an AfroAmerican before they accepted a woman.”
