Kvinden i buret (Afdeling Q)

Kvinden i buret (Afdeling Q) - Jussi Adler-Olsen I finally read my first Jussi Adler-Olsen book. It wasn't what I ecpectd at all. I thought it would be an action packed crime book, but that wasn't what I got. The plot was predictable, and you kind of knew who the suspect was at page 150. At least I knew that X probably had something to do with it all. Seeing it that way, this wasn't anything special or exciting, and I found that you had to read a good part of the book before the crime-ish stuff started happening.

The writing stile in this book was very original. So much humor! I loved the way everything was told as it was and nothing more. The way Assad talks is amazingly written! That was one of the things I loved about this book. And Carl Mørck... A lot can be said about him, but really, he isn't stupid! The idea that we're following more cases at once is working really well. I thought it'd be confusing, but Adler-Olsen managed to guide me through it. Even though there are a lot of characters, it's an easy read - normally I get confused a lot if there are more characters to keep track of, but that wasn't the case with this book.

I had a lot of fun reading this book. It wasn't the plot, but the writing style that did it for me.
