My first Polish crime/police procedure. It’s different. There is a different sense and rhythm to the story, wording, cultural assumptions, and more. I’ve quite liked working through Scandinavian crime writers. It will take time to see if my palate comes to like these.
Furst’s first. Novel that is. I’m on a debut novel binge, this one quite old.
It’s overly long, many more connecting threads are needed to make it make sense, but the seeds of his future work are all here.
I’ve never been a big fan of Patterson. The problem when you churn out novels like Fritos corn chips is that … well … you get Fritos corn chips: bland, empty and indistinguishable from each other.
But at least it didn’t suck.
