Nils went to Central America and the story follows his life there – what he does and who he meets. This is a really slow burner. The novel, at pages, is over-long- probably because we waste too much time with Julia and her bottles of red wine. But I didn’t figure out the other facets of the whole thing until the very end. She is a milque-toast figure of uncertain outline, an irritating bundle of soppy nerves. Hovering somewhere between like and really like is my rating of this quiet but intense murder mystery.
