Attention Nordic Noir lovers! This is the fifth installment in the Konrad Simonsen novels of Danish brother-sister writing team Soren and Lotte Hammer. If you haven't read the other four and are interested in police procedurals with a Euro-flair, you may want to begin with the first book (The Hanging), because the characters develop and ripen over time. What begins as an atrocity in Copenhagen has deep ties to the past and while I don't want to give things away too much, the idea of such a ruthless killer getting away with decades of grief and mischief initially had me disappointed. The story redeems itself but our detective, while still sharp, is aging and it feels like there can't be too many Konrad Simonsen novels left. The pace is moderate, as there is some government red tape, but the characters are so well-drawn, it flows well and had me up past my bedtime to finish it. Besides Copenhagen and rural environs, the story also makes a stop-over Bosnia and Herzegovina, and finally touches down in American Samoa. A worthy read, even if the title is completely misleading; the original Danish title ‘Den Sindssyge Polak’ (The Insane Pollack) is also deceptive, but intentionally so. Great series!

This story line is a bit convoluted, but I really loved the ending. Am a big fan of the Chief Superintendent Konrad Simonsen mysteries. Recommend!! Kristi & Abby Tabby
