The subject matter was unpleasant but overall the book was good. Unexpected ending. I'm going to read more books by this author. I gave it a 4 rating, not a 3.

Many books in a library are listed as non-fiction when, in point of fact, they are indeed fictional. Others are classified as fiction, when they are thinly veiled books of truth. This is one of those, a brutal, yet thoroughly well written book more factual than fiction. (I would differentiate this novel from Stieg Larsson's because Stieg wrote fiction, ultimately portraying the State as the exemplar of justice, just containing some rogue elements, while reality is quite the opposite and this novel fictionalizes reality, but the stark reality most certainly comes through!)

Awesome ! A horrible subject, but a fabulously written story. The ending is totally unexpected. I love these guys, and can't wait for them to write more books. Sadly I have already read everything they've written to date.
