And again: Homo homini lupus est

Oh boy, oh boy. I must say even though I love all things "Gothic", I am not too keen on gut-twisting gore. More than a couple of occasions in this book had me feeling rather queasy. But it was totally worth it. It may not be for the faint-hearted or weak-in-the stomach. Have you been cold lately, or wet, or otherwise miserable?... Oh boy, oh boy. I must say even though I love all things "Gothic", I am not too keen on gut-twisting gore. More than a couple of occasions in this book had me feeling rather queasy. But it was totally worth it. It may not be for the faint-hearted or weak-in-the stomach. Have you been cold lately, or wet, or otherwise miserable? In any sort of pain, maybe? Felt treated just a little bit unjustly? Forget it, it was nothing; we are all pathetic 21st century wimps. Get ready to enter the vale of tears. But it’s a mind-blowing, very believable portrait of life (and death) in the Swedish capital around 1793. It will take your breath away, even if it be just for that stink of Stockholm. Add a possible predecessor of Holmes and Watson, and the whole thing becomes not only bearable but an extremely fascinating thriller with a few historical twists. Natt Och Dag (imagine your surname was Night and Day!) has done a tremendous job. His way with words and his storytelling skills and are nothing short of brilliant. There was a Costa Award-winning book a few years ago that’s very similar; it may have been forgotten but it’s not gone: Andrew Miller’s “Pure.” Be sure to check it out! It’s set in Paris in the year 1785. Some notable quotes: “ ‘Omnia mutantur, nihil inherit.’ Everything changes, but nothing is truly ever lost.” “If your mind says one thing and reality another, it must be the thought that is in error.” “You know of course that the war lacked any purpose and that the victory did not win us anything.” “Are we wolves to one another, always on the lookout for the last sign of weakness before we choose our moment to attack?” “I have seen the world now, Mr Winge. Humans are lying vermin, a pack of bloodthirsty wolves who want nothing more than to tear each other to pieces in their struggle for power. The enslaved are no better than their masters, only weaker.”
