Bra driven historia som är fin berättad, trots allt det onda som händer. Karaktärerna håller och man avslutar boken funderandes över livet.

En samling noveller med lösa kopplingar till varandra. Vissa är riktigt bra några är klart sämre. Hårt, rått, brutalt och skitigt är gemensamma nämnare. Inte helt såld på denna tyvärr.
