This Swedish murder mystery definitely shows its age, which is a plus and a minus. It was written in the 1950's and is very much in the Agatha Christie vein -- country house, limited number of characters, clever detective, charming girl narrator. On the plus side, this gives it a certain charm and a certain archaeological value for devoted mystery fanatics (interestingly, the one way in which it is NOT like Agatha is sex: in Sweden in the 1950's, it happened). On the minus side, it has a stilted style and generally one dimensional characters. I didn't enjoy it as much as the two other Maria Lang novels I have read, and I didn't enjoy any of them as much as the excellent Swedish TV series based on the books, "Crimes of Passion". That's set in the 1950's, but made just a few years ago. For those who do want to read this book, you can get it on Google Play -- Amazon for some reason has been showing it as unavailable for quite a while. ( )
