At first, it's not an easy book to read. It's translation into English makes it seem stilted and words don't flow. Despite this, as far as crime novels are concerned it is okay. The tragic murder of Poona and the subsequent stalking of Linda will keep you guessing - is it 'him' or isn't it? Personally, the only flaw was the ending of the book. Too inconclusive for my liking as I like all ends tied up like a parcel. It felt like eating a piece of chocolate only to find the filling bitter.
