The phone wakes you up, someone tells you your wife has been murdered and you realise that you’re not married. It turns out to be your ex-wife, so the journalist accompanies a police officer to Malta where the murder took place. Soon they discover a new body, meet a whole crew of people and are in the midst of the bloodiest case Malta has ever seen.
Turell is a Danish author of whodunnits. He has a sense of humour, which makes the books a very easy read. On a night I couldn’t sleep, I read the last two thirds in one go. The plot is predictable, yet again it isn’t. Good in its genre.
