The Alphabet House; Jussi Adler-Olsen

The Alphabet HouseThe Alphabet House by Jussi Adler-Olsen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So very different than the Department Q series - historical fiction for most of the book, then suspense/thriller towards the end. There were times I thought of DNF'ing it, but there was just enough going on (in the beginning) to keep me going. Less about the train and perhaps tighter plotting in the Alphabet House itself would have made this a little better overall, since there is a definite shift in pacing when we get to the modern day. On the other hand, that might have been a translation choice?
