-some agreement with earlier comments, still a real pleasure to read about men doing their work in honorable way - recommended

While I did enjoyed the Inspector O novels, the plot in this book is very complicated, and the reader is left with many unanswered questions (too many this time ?) It was also disappointing to see that most of the story happens outside of North Korea - the storyline happening in North Korea were one of the main reason why the Inspector O novels were so attractive to me. Not the best of the serie.

too much "tell" rather than "show". I enjoyed the previous Inspector O books but this one was a bit tedious (and overcomplicated).
