The Sandman

Do you want to know what’s even better than Jo Nesbø’s books. I’ll tell you shortly but first I want to thank you all for reading my blog. It’s a real pleasure to share my thoughts with people who appreciate books and movies. I wrote my first writing on the 8th of July this year and I’m so happy to see so many of you here. Thank you!

Now I tell you about a book that kept me in my chair for hours last weekend. The Sandman written by Lars Kepler. I started to read The Sandman and I wasn’t able to stop, I just wanted to read and read and know what is going to happen next. I could actually feel the excitement in my stomach and I wanted to read faster, turn the pages quickly, I wanted more.

In Lars Kepler’s book the action starts right away. The short chapters make you want more and the excitement speeds up towards the end. A real suspense novel, I say. The main character, the police, Joona Linna, is an honest and straightforward guy who does what he has to do and  who wants to protect his nearest and dearest to the end. And he wants to hunt down all the murderers and other criminals and he does it well. As a person, Joona Linna is not so troubled as some of his colleagues in other detective stories.

What’s interesting about Lars Kepler is that Lars is actually two people, a married couple Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril. It’s also interesting that you, as a reader, are not able to see the difference in the text, you have no idea who has written what. I was fortunate to meet Alexander and Alexandra Ahndoril in a book store last year. I’ve also read all their books, The Hypnotist, The Nightmare, The Fire Witness and now the Sandman. Some of the best books I have ever read.
