My rating: 1 of 5 stars

After reading the entire book I have no idea who did what. A beautiful girl died, years pass, and another crime occurs, but I don’t want to give a spoiler so I won’t say more on the plot. There were multiple suspects in both the crimes – pretty much the same people – but no one seems to have a motive and it’s never revealed who did either. I couldn’t even tell which character was narrating each chapter. Each was in the first person but there was no label or chapter heading to reveal who it was. In most of them it became obvious, but in several of the key ones, it wasn’t. The writing was also awkward and wandering into irrelevant anecdotes. I don’t know if it was bad writing or bad translating but this is definitely a book to skip. Its best (or least bad) feature is that it was very short.
