Book Review: "The Leopard" by Jo Nesbo

As part of our summer reading program for adults, we are asking adults to write a brief review of each book they read. We have their permission to post the reviews.

The Leopard by Jo Nesbo; reviewed by Dorothy Kramper.

I read The Leopard on my Kindle, as it was one of the few books available without a waiting period.  

It takes place in Oslo, Norway.  What I liked about it was that it was fast moving and didn't get bogged down in a lot of wordy description.  It was interesting to learn about the power struggle for control in investigations between Norway's Kripos (like our FBI) and the local crime squad.

What I didn't like about it was the author seemed to try and think of how many different ways a person could be tortured and killed; even to researching antique torture weapons.
