Book Twelve: Exile

Exile, Denise Mina

Maybe I just like these books because everyone is constantly making and drinking tea. Or maybe it's because they're freaking awesome. In fact, it occurred to me in the midst of this second mystery featuring our heroine Maureen O'Donnell, that the Garnethill trilogy is really a much better version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. As much as I enjoyed the first of that series, the rest of it kind of fell apart for me, feeling as if Stieg Larsson let the story get away from him. Denise Mina, on the other hand, always feels to be tightly in control of her characters and the plot. And I appreciate that. Now I just wonder, why aren't these more popular?
