Allmänna fakta



This was a rather disappointing end to the series. Noah is grieving and feeling guilty about his brother Sol's death and so Sol follows him around like an imaginary friend and they have conversations. Sol speaks in an extremely annoying patois/gang-speech, which is far less understandable than the words I remember him using when he was alive.

The plot doesn't make a huge amount of sense and there are too many unforeseeable revelations towards the end (Mr Peters' sick brother and Lynne's wreaths, to name but two).… (mer)

This was fairly dark throughout. Marnie and the team are trying to find a violent prisoner, Mickey, who has escaped during a riot, having started a fire and maimed some of his fellow inmates as he left. The darker chapters are from the point of view of Ted, Mickey's cellmate, who is on life support in hospital. These alternate with the police procedural sections and there are also updates on Noah's brother Sol and the eternal question of why Stephen killed Marnie's parents.

I think the author made a bit much of the fate of Mickey's mother's house. Surely people die all the time without making a will and their estates usually pass fairly smoothly to the people you would expect to inherit? Still, that's a minor point.

I read this in one sitting, and enjoyed it very much, although I'm still not sure exactly what the motivations of the various criminals were. Why were Marnie's tenants attacked, for example? On a different note, what did Noah arrest Sol for exactly at the end? I wonder if Ed is on the way out - he only really featured as some one Marnie kept things from. I liked the characterization of Marnie's new boss, Ferguson.

I'm going to read the last two instalments asap.

I found this gripping while I was reading it, if slightly longer than it needed to be. Now that I have put it down, I am questioning how convincing I find certain aspects of the plot. There are also some logistical questions which I don't think were addressed. Still, it was a page turner and featured police officers working together collaboratively while leading functional personal lives, which is always refreshing.
