    I ve been a big fan of the author, and have read all of his other books This is the first one that was unsatisfying Spoiler My favorite mystery of all time, Michael Dibdin s Dead Lagoon also leaves parts of its core mystery unsolved, but it is still satisfying So having everything neatly wrapped up by the end is not a requirement But we never really find out what was going on through the whole book, and when you have an omnicient narrator, that s not acceptable We hear from Lucas early I ve been a big fan of the author, and have read all of his other books This is the first one that was unsatisfying Spoiler My favorite mystery of all time, Michael Dibdin s Dead Lagoon also leaves parts of its core mystery unsolved, but it is still satisfying So having everything neatly wrapped up by the end is not a requirement But we never really find out what was going on through the whole book, and when you have an omnicient narrator, that s not acceptable We hear from Lucas early on what he s doing, what he s thinking, and then this voice disappears, and we never know what really happened to him, or why he was stalking the main character or the main character s daughter and he was stalking them Very irritating Also, there are mysteries some by this author where the detective s foibles and side stories are enough to make the book worth reading even with a lame central puzzle But this time, Garcia Roza doesn t seem to do much with Inspector Espinoza the Inspector s usual low level depression is instead simply transferred to the reader

    I picked this up off a friend s book swap pile only because the author is Brazilian, and I don t think I ve ever read a Brazilian author It s a fantastic, suspenseful thriller about a bookish police chief who gets challenged by a strange psychologist and his obsession with one of his patients I can t reveal too much without giving anything away, but I read this on one busride between Gyeongju and Incheon I was on the edge of my bus seat the whole time and almost jumped out of my bus seat on I picked this up off a friend s book swap pile only because the author is Brazilian, and I don t think I ve ever read a Brazilian author It s a fantastic, suspenseful thriller about a bookish police chief who gets challenged by a strange psychologist and his obsession with one of his patients I can t reveal too much without giving anything away, but I read this on one busride between Gyeongju and Incheon I was on the edge of my bus seat the whole time and almost jumped out of my bus seat once

    Um dos melhores da s rie Qual a fronteira entre a sanidade e a loucura Cada vez mais denso e a afastar se do tipo de hist ria e di logos dos primeiros livros Prova que GR capaz de se mexer em qualquer cen rio e Espinosa continua imbat vel.

    Overall I enjoy the Espinosa series but this book did not cut it for me I am sorry but not solving the case is kind of pointless for a crime detective novel.

    I ve worked with some wonderfully astute Psychiatrists and somesuited to sheep farming or antique collecting but none as inept and poorly portrayed as the main character in this Inspector Espinosa novel this is the 4th Garcia Roza novel I have read in this series and so far Inspector Sepinosa has failed to solve a single crime he does quite a lot of musing some introspection and appears to spend his waking hours planning his next meal or eating it I suppose there is some interest in I ve worked with some wonderfully astute Psychiatrists and somesuited to sheep farming or antique collecting but none as inept and poorly portrayed as the main character in this Inspector Espinosa novel this is the 4th Garcia Roza novel I have read in this series and so far Inspector Sepinosa has failed to solve a single crime he does quite a lot of musing some introspection and appears to spend his waking hours planning his next meal or eating it I suppose there is some interest in a Psychiatrist who is being stalked I have known this with a colleague and that story was muchinteresting than this one So many loose ends with this book the story starts aroundman called Jonas whom the inept Psychiatrist insists should be called Isidoro for a large part of the novel it is their interplay that is the main substance of the book until one of them just stops being part of the story not real explanation as to what happened we just fall back to the Inspector Espinosa and his search for the next burger.I think this novel offended me with its shallow portrayal of mental illness Dr Nesse the Psychiatrist saying of Jonas He s Psychotic or he s paranoid with no evidence to support this description as though it is explanation even as description it is poor might as well say he is nice or Intelligent all meaningless terms unless there is a comparator fear this just perpetuates them and us notions of mental illness so my 2 star rating is perhaps generous

    Another weird psychological thriller that keeps you turning the pages and then is not really resolved clearly at the end Garcia Roza could probably write a thriller about paint drying but the ending would surely be fuzzy I enjoy the character of Espinoza, the book loving detective, who is the honest cop and seems the most unlikely cop He thinks too much and so does the author At the end we still don t know who killed who I guess some cases are just that way.
