review: where monsters dwell by jørgen brekke

Where Monsters Dwell began strongly with two murders in two countries occurring within a month of each other. The murders are obviously tied together, but with one being in Richmond, VA and the other in Trondheim, Norway, it took a good long while for the investigators to realize it. While that added to the suspense, Where Monsters Dwell was also unfortunately very convoluted with the two different narratives combined with a lot of backstory that added little to the plot. Although the prized, yet supposedly cursed sixteenth century book that seemed to be at the center of the murders was intriguing, the revelations at the end of the novel proved disappointing.
