This book was okay.
The ending was disappointing, and the plot lines a bit silly, in my opinion.

“Curry never thought about how he would die. It wasn’t something that had never crossed his mind. From old age, possibly. Sometime in the distant future, on a veranda with a sea view. Certainly not in a place like this, in a filthy flat, ambushed and tried to a chair with a hood over his head.”

“It was everywhere now, no matter which TV channel you watched. She had seen the press conferences. The blonde police lawyer, who kept brushing aside all the questions, seemed calm. No need to worry. Despite that, everyone at the theatre and everyone else she met had started looking over their shoulders. A serial killer at large in Oslo?”

Quotes from the book.
  • The Guardian: “The chase is frantic, the plot far-fetched and nutty, but that’s all part of the fun.”

Original title Gutten som elsket rådyr, published by Vigmostad & Bjørke, Norway
