Beyond the Truth: Hanne Wilhelmsen Book Seven (A Hanne Wilhelmsen Novel) - Anne Holt

I love these Scandinavian novels, but I always have the hardest times with the names. They always slow me down. And this was no exception, no fault of the author, just the fault of me the reader not being used to different cultures.

My only complaint about this book was that the crime was wrapped up and the suspects arrested so early. Everything pointed to them. It was too easy and I sort of became bored with the whole thing until the ending. Then there was a huge plot twist. However, the plot twist alleged to at the beginning was so forgotten with everything else that by that time, I was just kind of over it. I think being interrupted so many times during the holiday weekend may have added to that frustration for me. There was a lot going on in this book. And I can tell you that the main family was certainly cray cray. I guess having all that money can do that to you. However, for the most part, it was a good read and I think that if I had read it in just a day or two as opposed to six, I would have liked it a lot better.

Huge thanks to Scribner for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
