Too noir for my tastes. Also needlessly drawn out. Author also does nor "play fair" with the reader in telling the tale.

Swedish/Danish police procedural serial killer. Interesting but way too complicated.

I do enjoy Nordic Noir and read several authors. This author is new to me.
I did enjoy the story. I won't give anything away....but I also just finished reading the 2nd book in the series "The Ninth Grave". Not sure why the author wrote this way, but I think 9th Grave should be the first in the series and Victim without a Face should be 2nd in the series.
I found I was confused at the beginning trying to figure out why the characters seemed to be a step back in time.

Looking forward to book #3.

LONG and disappointing. This book needs editing, as much of it is slow or repetitive - how many times can the author end a chapter with one of the cops saying or thinking "we don't know what to do next"??? There are loose threads that are never tied up (two examples: Risk's maybe-lover and his former employment in Copenhagen), descriptions of scenery or interiors that don't make sense or aren't illuminating, and the main character is boring and predictable.
If this is the first in a series of Fabian Risk novels, count me out for the rest.
