How many people live in Sweden?

If there are only a dozen people in Sweden then I take back this review, but otherwise this was an awful book. I felt nothing at all for most of the characters, and the ending was very unsatisfying and unbelievable. No matter how much you like Nordic crime, don't waste your money or time on this.

Sooo Slowww

To me- a slow book and it makes the Swedish Police force sound like a bungling batch of dim wits. I just couldn't finish it.
