The Cold Song - Liv Ullmann

Every time I read one of Ullmann's books, I marvel at the fact that despite being a Daughter Of (Ingmar Bergman and Liv Ullmann), she can actually write! And I don't just mean assemble enough letters in a row, I mean Write Actual Literature.

That said, this one was a bit of a letdown. 
It is a pageturner, but it sticks too closely to the whodunit dogma, which is a giant leap back from her previous, more ambitious, novels.

Had she been one of my students, I would have commented this 'You can do better!'

  1. Håller helt med! Jag brukar sluka hennes böcker, men nu var jag till och med lite...uttråkad till och från. Synd! /Maria
