I have got this ebook from Amazon Crossing. And read it on Kindle.
This was the very first time for me reading Swedish author's book. I love the chance that Amazon Crossing gave to me. Actually, the tense and the mystery that packed here in this book is great.
But, the plot feels flat for me. The character as well don't have good development. While reading this, I found that it's hardly to hook into the story. And I got bored easily even though I already tried so hard to finished this ebook. It took me more time to finished it. And I feel so sorry that I could not enjoy reading it so far.
