Resenhas

A really good writer, but I always seem to find the dénoument a bit unsatisfying. Really liked the new Willow Reeves character.

Ik las dit boek vooral om te zien in hoeverre het leek op de Vera-serie die ik ook van de tv ken. Ik denk dat de plot wel min of meer hetzelfde bleef maar het tempo is wel enorm veel lager. Dat ligt natuurlijk voor de hand bij boek versus 1 1/2 uur tv , maar Hier wordt wel een enorm lange aanloop genomen doordat er vanuit de drie vrouwen om dwie het allereerst gaat wordt gekeken pas op minstens de helft van het boek komt Vera zelf binnen. In het boek is ze nog wel aantrekkelijker , onappetijtelijker dan op de tv . Ik herinnerde me de dader wel correct, maar paradoxaal, werd de ruimte die voor de ontwikkeling van de plot gegeven werd in het boek die eigenlijk vooral minder waarschijnlijk , ook wat het profiel van de dader betreft die we die wel beschreven was maar niet erg leek op de figuur die de moord gepleegd heeft.… (mais)

A fine mystery, good setting, but no stand out characters.
