The Doll

The Doll by Yrsa Sigurdardottir is right centre in the canon of Scandinavian dark crime.

Take a detective trying to get his career back on track, a faithful colleague, a hint of romantic interest, add in a sprinkle of child abuse, part of a skeleton dragged out of the sea, an unexplained murder of a drug addict, some organised crime, and some remote locations and you have classic scandi fare.

Good but not great, somewhat predictable but enjoyable.
