It tells the story from the point of view of the captive, Merete, and of the detective looking into the case, Carl. This is quite an interesting way of telling the story as Merete’s story is mainly in the past where as Carl’s is present, and they eventully meet.
It’s well written (and translated) although as it’s not set in the UK, monetary amounts and places don’t mean much unless you already have a knowledge of them.
The plot was good and interesting and the ending was ‘complete’ – it didn’t really leave any lose ends – which was nice.
I look forward to the second book!
