5つ星のうち 4.0 Two books in one 2013/2/13
投稿者 Ronald K. Goodenow - (Amazon.com)

This really is a fine piece of work in many ways. The plot is, to say the least, intriguing. The police procedural piece is splendid. The serial killing bit surpasses McDermid I think. I loved the lectures on Sibelius and wish that there was some way I could pull them out of my Kindle for separate reading as I listen to my Sibelius collection...I did a lot of reading on my bed and listened through crummy little speakers that doubtless dulled the drama. There were times when the psychologizing got a bit heavy (I prefer the Jonathan Kellerman approach), but one cannot claim to not know the main characters. And, frankly, it is quite a relief to explore the feelings of a relatively young female officer as opposed to the aging guys in so many Rankin and other novels, many of which are set in gloomy northern climes.

If I have a complaint it is probably an odd one. I simply did not come away with much of a feeling that this book was really set in Finland. Sure, there were street names, Metro stops, and the odd historical reference. But at the end of the day it simply felt too British. Could have been Liverpool. Not enough reference to local food, city atmospherics, demographics, politics or layout, etc. I know readers may disagree about this particular criticism, but good detective novels or thrillers can be wonderful travel books. Nothing in this one persuades me I should hop on a plane and go to Helsinki. I did go to St. Petersburg, and when I passed the Finland Station gave it the odd thought, but nothing here suggests I should have hopped a train and spent a few days there.

I don't read murder mysteries very often and when I do it is mostly to fill dead time on airplanes. Not a knock on the genre per se. I mention it only to point out that I came at this book without normal expectations. What attracted me to it was simply that I was intrigued at the Sibelius connection. I'm a big fan of his music and was wondering if any of what I like about Sibelius would somehow manifest itself in the prose or settings of a novel, and what fun that might be!

In the end, I'd have to say no, except for the geographical and temporal considerations, the Sibelius mood/meaning aspect is largely absent. The Sibelius connection is not entirely gratuitous, as it is worked into the landscape and to an extent the motives. But it is fair to say that the entire book could have been plotted without the lectures or the musicology. The author's inclusion of lectures dumped into the middle of an ongoing narrative that demanded a lot of attention to detail so as not to lose the thread could be called distracting. However, I learned about music and Sibelius's life, so I don't consider the time wasted. I suspect the author at one point had grander ideas of how to better integrate a truly Sibelian mentality into the plot but in the end got defeated, and yet could not entirely rid himself of this obsession. Apt, considering how the plot works itself out.

I will echo what others hear have said about the plotting, the intelligence, the insight, and the language the author employs. I could not put the book down and was grateful I had a holiday that afforded me the time to sit with it for hours. I especially loved the excursion to the countryside and the observations about the Finns and Helsinki, which I have never visited. I'm now afraid I have to go and see for myself. Sounds like a small but very delightful and engaging city.

I do want to chide the author for the perfectly awful job of book design and typesetting. The cover is ugly ugly ugly. The typesetting inside is crude and unimaginative. I understand self-publishers may only have basic word processors like Word available, but surely he could have done a more interesting job and chosen a typeface that is less ubiquitous? On the flip side, the book is well edited and free of inconsistencies and typos. Covers are so important, however, that this poor job is surely going to cost the author a lot in sales and credibility. As Lightning Sources (which is where this books was produced, makes it easy to switch covers, I hope he'll consider a redesign.

Ugly production or no, definitely worth picking up and reading.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Kept me guessing to the end 2011/2/11
投稿者 John Michael Albert - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
What a great read. 450 pages is rather formidable for a mystery, and I was beginning to wonder if I would get "hooked" as I approached page 200 but, for me, the book took off lickety-split and raced to the end from there. I really enjoyed the entirely plausible "red herrings" the author tossed in and the way he anticipated the reader's (my) confusion in the persons of his inspectors. And he kept my in suspense about the identity of the murderer to the end. What piqued my interested initially and what kept me going was my passion for the music of Sibelius. The many references to the composer and his life, as well as the series of lectures being given throughout the mystery by the inspector's father, is a brilliant plot device. And, may I say, not too much for the casual reader or too little for the music lover. Altogether, a great read--and I learned some new things about the composer as well.

What an intriguing well written mystery. It's a spellbinder to the end. Good luck on figuring out who the murderer is. The head detective is a woman and a human being and well portrayed by the author who is a man. Each character is a defined personality. The music theme running through it is very interesting and a part of the murder plot but not exactly the way you would think. It's interesting that the author lets you not read the lectures if you don't care to and really don't have to...but...!? I'm looking forward to his next book.

A bit too much rehashing of the story at the end. Also some long monologues that repeat the same material. In his first real mystery, the author should have stuck to a single narrator, the detective for example.

For the experienced mystery reader he left an unnecessary early clue a little over half way through.

The Sibelius lectures came on top of this. I was interested enough in them so I simply bookmarked them and read them afterwards.

All in all, a good effort.
