It my turn on the Wolves in the Dark blog tour and I am here today with a mini-review! Mini because I haven’t finished the book yet – *hides* – so I’ll add a full review later on but I felt bad so here at least is something.
First though… the book!
About the Book
Reeling from the death of his great love, Karin, Varg Veum’s life has descended into a self-destructive spiral of alcohol, lust, grief and blackouts. When traces of child pornography are found on his computer, he’s accused of being part of a pedophile ring and thrown into a prison cell. There, he struggles to sift through his past to work out who is responsible for planting the material . . . and who is seeking the ultimate revenge. When a chance to escape presents itself, Varg finds himself on the run in his hometown of Bergen. With the clock ticking and the police on his tail, Varg takes on his hardest—and most personal—case yet. Chilling, shocking and exceptionally gripping, Wolves in the Dark reaffirms Gunnar Staalesen as one of the world’s foremost thriller writers.
Having never read a book by Gunnar Staalesen before, I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t know what was going on or really connect to the characters in this book but fortunately this wasn’t the case. There is something so addictive about the writing style of this book that has my eyes moving across the page rapidly, swallowing the information in. Not only this but it was easy to really picture what was happening as Gunnar has done a really wonderful job of describing everything in an entertaining way. I can not express how easily this book is to dive into. And it’s also the kind of book that you can walk away from for a while and come back to and remember what was happening as it is so unique in it’s plot and storyline. I am very intrigued as to where this book will take me and how it will all come together and I cannot wait to finish it. Until then, I would already highly recommend it!
