  • This is an easy paced book.

    Varg Veum is a private investigator. One afternoon he is visited by a woman, Norma, who explains to him that she is his half-sister who was given up for adoption before he was born. She is there because she is looking for her God-Daughter, Emma, and needs Varg’s services. She explains that the young woman was studying to be a nurse and moved out of her bedsit two weeks ago and hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Varg thinks that it will most likely be an easy case, but his investigations take him into a sinister world. There is also the fact that police just believe she has run-off with a boyfriend, so refuse to help. Can Varg find Emma, dead or alive? Big sister is set in Norway and at the front of the book that is a map of the area to help you keep track of Varg’s investigations. The book reads like an old TV private investigation series. Although there are no real explosive, thrilling moments, the book is an interesting read and fully enjoyable one too. I loved watching Varg work and how he pieces the case together to come to a conclusion I didn’t see coming. He is a lovely character. He has some flaws and that’s what makes him all the more realistic. As the book progressed I found myself getting more and more drawn into how Varg works. He’s certainly not afraid to push people out of their comfort-zones to get the information he needs. You also get a real feel for all the other characters in the book too. I found myself hoping that Emma would be found alive and also I wanted to discover the truth about why she had disappeared without a trace. Once I had finished reading the book I realised that this is just one in a huge series of books about Varg Veum. There have even been film adaptations of his earlier books too. I can confirm that this book works perfectly well as a stand-alone novel and you won’t have any trouble following the story. This is an easy paced book. The writing is just superb and the plot was credible, keeping me glued to the pages right the way through. I am definitely going to have to read more Varg Veum novels after this one.

    Thanks for your feedback!
