    This book leaves many stones unturned The plot is at times very exciting and high paced, but the ending is disappointing to say the least If you are after an anticlimax, this is the book for you Throughout the book, Anne Holt hints thator less all the characters have secrets vital to the story You keep reading to find out what these secrets could possibly be and how they will fit in to what is essentially a well created plot The problem is you never find out what the secrets are The This book leaves many stones unturned The plot is at times very exciting and high paced, but the ending is disappointing to say the least If you are after an anticlimax, this is the book for you Throughout the book, Anne Holt hints thator less all the characters have secrets vital to the story You keep reading to find out what these secrets could possibly be and how they will fit in to what is essentially a well created plot The problem is you never find out what the secrets are The characters proceed to disclose their secrets to each other, but not to the reader as the chapter will inevitably end just when the juicy stuff is about to start I still enjoyed the book when I got over the initial irritation of being left in the dark The story is good, feels up to date and it does keep you intrigued enough to keep turning the pages The ending does let it down as does the amount of unanswered questions you are left pondering I do not like cliff hangers when there is no prospect of finding out what happens next If you are less of a nosy and impatient character than me, I would still recommend it for an easy read

    This 4 star rating much like when I enjoy some cheesy action film that hasn t got very good reviews, this isn t a recommendation to discerning readers but I did have a damn good time Which I needed Overwhelmed by a succession of recent books in which I was finding significant quotes on almost every page, and about some of which I felt the urge to write several thousand word reviews that may or may not ever be finished , my brain desperately needed a break from so much bloody meaning and imp This 4 star rating much like when I enjoy some cheesy action film that hasn t got very good reviews, this isn t a recommendation to discerning readers but I did have a damn good time Which I needed Overwhelmed by a succession of recent books in which I was finding significant quotes on almost every page, and about some of which I felt the urge to write several thousand word reviews that may or may not ever be finished , my brain desperately needed a break from so much bloody meaning and importance Something verging on trashy was necessary, and this example turned outfun than I expected.The events of Death in Oslo would be very important if they had actually happened as is the case with most crime fiction and thrillers but discussing the book won t be This one isn t the usual police procedural that Anne Holt writes, it s a political thriller the first female president of the USA of partly Norwegian descent disappears whilst on a state visit to Oslo The political thriller side of things was what I enjoyed so much there was a larger cast of characters with close third person narration than in the two earlier books, and nearly all of the focus was on events and conversations relating to the case, with very few scenes from the home life of the now married Vik Stubo Lots of big exciting stuff happening yet no gore And hurray Hanne Wilhelmsen the protagonist of Holt s other series appears in Death in Oslo It was because I enjoyed 1222 that I got these VS books in the first place And it was because of a now defunct UCL Scandinavian Studies reading list found online that I read that, one of their two suggested samples of Nordic crime fiction In contrast to the anxious criminal psychologist Johanne Vik, Wilhelmsen, here on early retirement after injury in the line of duty, again appears to be a female version of the brilliant grumpy loner male detective, exactly the sort of heroine I want to read about in crime genre fiction There is a serious subtext to the novel as is the case with a lot of Nordic noir like the two earlier Vik Stubo books, there s a theme of encroachment onto the Norwegian way of life by Americanised dangers and attitudes, things that some people feel only used to happen elsewhere First it was children and child safety, second celebrities and their conduct, and in Death in Oslo, it s America s self appointed role as world police post 9 11 You don t exactly need to be well informed to guess that the US agents try to take over the investigation and that the Norwegians resist that And Anne Holt s way of writing a feminist crime novel is to put plenty of women in significant roles where they are respected, and for this not to be a big deal This I like much better than the highlighting negatives approach eg Liza Marklund, whom I m not keen to read any time soon And a conversation betwen Stubo and a senior American intends to highlight differing typical attitudes to women among men of the same age mysterious irresistible v usually easy to understand, and equal Holt makes a few nods to the meta literary, but there are several silly blockbuster movie aspects in Death in Oslo which will irritate some, but it was just what I wanted The chief baddie has elements of Bond villains, westernised Arab tycoons and Osama bin Laden It s the Siddhartha approach, used twice in this book, where a fictional character has things in common with a real life figure, but is shown to be a different person partly because they ve met them Also how did Wilhelmsen end up living in Frogner Belgravia And there s a really daft plot twist Which made me burst out laughing when I accidentally saw a spoiler whilst scrolling past reviews on WorldCat There wasn t long to go before it appeared in the book, at least I liked the way it actually happened, and all the scenes resulting from it view spoiler Including the gathering of women in Hanne s flat, which on the basis of some of my other reviews, you might think I wouldn t like But Hanne and Helen and Mary are all cool and theythan balanced out Johanne s fussiness Having become a follower of the series, it was good to see some of the tension of the Vik Warren Scifford business relieved at last Good timing for that it had been stretched until the reader got tired of it like Adam did, but not for too long hide spoiler For all that this book was rather fun, I still don t think the character of Johanne Vik fits together very well If a writer creates a character who s a specialist in a field in which they themselves aren t, without doing a lot of research, the character may not ring true to readers who have studied the area Okay, Vik is a criminal psychologist and academic rather than one on the therapeutic counselling side, but despite being empathic and sensitive to people around her, she never thinks in psychological depth about her avoidance and outbursts around her difficult time training in America when she was younger and the effects on her husband It s like she doesn t even know the terms or processes yet she obviously must, given everything else she works out about other people It s very hard to believe that as long as 15 years could pass without someone with her skills gainingunderstanding of herself And in general we hear very few of her thought processes, she simply comes up with ideas that often fit No longer thinking I d jumped the gun in getting all of this series because it were cheap, I m now looking forward to the next one a whole lotthoughstill to the Hanne Wilhelmsen books I haven t read yet The Blazing World finished , Ancillary Justice not finished City of Angels or the Overcoat of Doctor Freud half read

    I read this book because it was promoted as a locked room mystery and I just finished riding the tram and metro routes in Oslo on You Tube The locked room element was quite good But this book is not a mystery There was no questioning of suspects or any clues It is rather a political novel I wouldn t even call it a thriller Not my kind of book at all And in certain sections it becomes rather tedious Just descriptions of what people are doing and saying The only real suspense came in the I read this book because it was promoted as a locked room mystery and I just finished riding the tram and metro routes in Oslo on You Tube The locked room element was quite good But this book is not a mystery There was no questioning of suspects or any clues It is rather a political novel I wouldn t even call it a thriller Not my kind of book at all And in certain sections it becomes rather tedious Just descriptions of what people are doing and saying The only real suspense came in the last 10% of the book And I wish people will understand the difference between a closed circle mystery and a locked room mystery A locked room mystery is where a crime is committed behind locked doors It is also a generic term for any kind of impossible crime A closed circle mystery is a story where all the suspects are together near the scene of the crime, for example in a country house or a train or a vacation resort This book is not a closed circle mystery Many of the characters don t even meet each other.And why do the investigators ot two different countries have to fight with each other instead of working peacefully together
