His second, Lucifer s Tears, was included in Kirkus s Lis
I crashed straight into this one from reading Snow Angels and Lucifer s Tears I m about 70% in now and I m really wondering what the I m reading It s like a friend you know quite well, who s brilliant company when he s sober, who suddenly becomes unrecognisable when he s drunk violent amoral foul mouthed It s a shock The previous books were sharp, focused, sure This is chaos I seriously cannot recognise Kari the MC of the series in this book Sure, he s had brain surgery for a benign tumour and the author is brilliantly showing the after effects of such invasive intrusion in the mind, but still This is a novel on steroids Guns and knives described in great lurid detail, violent deaths thrown in almost as an afterthought I FEEL LIKE I M BEING SHOUTED AT THE WHOLE TIME AND IT S GETTING VERY TIRING I HAVE A HEADACHE NOW ALONG WITH THE AU Sigh, I didn t like it.
The thing that made me come back to the Kari Vaara books was Kari Vaara himself He wasn t in this book, not the Kari Vaara I liked.
Sadly, I think this wasn t a thriller at all It was a political book with an agenda Very, very Americanized It s clearly aimed at American public A Finn like me just gaped at the interpretation of our country and its people Okay, I know it s fiction but I was insulted by the picture painted of some thinly disguised politicians It just wasn t believable.
It wasn t a book about the country where I live Nor about the Helsinki I love It was well, Chicago, New York, whatever, moved to Finland The things described in the book can very well happen over there, set here they just sound ridiculous I found the picture of my country oversimplified and seen through malevolent eyes.
