Book Review - The Weeping Girl by Hakan Nesser

Another Scandinavian treat. Nesser's understanding of human behaviour and his clean prose style is on show again here. Ewa Moreno is meant to be on holidays but as we all know, fictional detectives rarely get time to have holidays or nurture their own personal life. She gets distracted by an allegation of illegal and corrupt conduct in her own group of colleagues and is also intrigued by the story of a weeping girl on the train. Unable to stop from pursuing the truth, a 16 year old case is finally and shockingly resolved. Good reading. Wendy
