5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Mystery, July 5, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Fifth Woman (A Kurt Wallander Mystery) (Paperback)
As a diehard mystery fan for many decades, I've found myself getting more particular about the structure and plot of the mysteries I read. Lately, I've wondered if I've become TOO critical. But then "The Fifth Woman" comes along and makes me realize there are some near perfect books out there. The novel is riveting, from beginning to end. What makes it especially noteworthy are the shifts in perspective, which are used to maximum effectiveness. The author gives the reader just a touch of information from the killer's perspective, then switches back to the detectives, who are baffled by a seemingly random set of clues. As a reader, you're shouting out "No, don't you see what's going on? Do a blood test!" But of course the characters don't hear you and have to work things out through the duration of the book. So much fun (if you like being on the edge of your seat).
