Sail of Stone (Inspector Winter, #6)Sail of Stone by Åke Edwardson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The descriptions of the area and people of Scotland between Inverness and Aberdeen are wonderful and the best part of this book. The book intertwines two plots, one mainly happening in Scotland, the other in Gothenburg, Sweden. Both plots are interesting - one reaches deeply into the past (to the Good War), the other has an almost absurd comedy flavor, but they are not much connected. Eric Winter is a caricature of his own (interesting) self from the previous books in the series and his personal struggles and tribulations feel paper-thin. The author tries too hard to affect a serious, literary style. Still, it's an OK read.
