    This was an interesting book, very typical of the Scandinavian style, cold, dark and atmospheric Very similar in many ways to Burial Rites which is up there in my most favourite books.Wolf Winter is not quite that good but it is still intriguing and very readable I was occasionally annoyed by the main character s neglect of her own children in her pursuit of justice, but then no one in this stor...
