    Axel Glenne is a doctor, married with three children he s the son of a Norwegian war hero He s a popular man and has great standing in the community.But the picture isn t as perfect as he would wish at least, not in the way that he sees it because Axel is haunted by a shadow in his background that simply won t go away that of a twin brother he hasn t seen in many years, a brother who actually hated him And pretty soon the picture of his perfect life is looking a bit less than perfect, certainly to the police Firstly, cracks begin to appear when he takes on a young trainee doctor The attraction between the two professionals is almost immediate, and he begins an affair that he knows is wrong but it s an attraction he s unable to resist.Secondly, there is the discovery of a dead woman who was known to Axel, and who appears to have been killed by a bear This is soon confirmed when DCI Viken, who is leading the investigation, brings in a colleague, Sgt Arve Norbakk, a seasoned hunter who is able to confirm all the signs Although he feels a sense of doubt, Viken goes along with the explanation, while not being totally convinced and remains alert for other possibil...

    Despite showing some promise in the initial and final stages, the vast majority of this book was plodding and unconvincing Spending most of the time with Axel Glenn, a doctor having what must be some kind of midlife crisis, as he embarks on an affair with a young colleague and makes ever ridiculous behavioural choices was just one of the book s many issues, which included frequent...

    SWEDISH REVIEW Se mig, Medusa r en bok som b rjade sp nnande, men kom ber ttelsen lite av sig och jag fann delar av boken n got segt innan ber ttelsen h mtade upp sig ordentligt mot slutet som var suver nt Jag gillade hur allting om Axel Glenne tvillingbror Brede verkade vara en stor hemlighet Vad h nde med Brede, r han vid liv r han personen bakom morden, och f rs ker han s tta dit Axel f r morden Och hur kan det vara mord om kvinnorna har d dats av en bj rn Massor av fr gor och jag tyckte boken var intressant, men jag fann Axels agerande ibland f rbryllande som om han n stan ville att polisen skulle misst nka honom genom att inte vara helt sanningsenlig och agera konstigt Men, jag ger inte mycket kredit till polisen heller, de tycktes vara alltf r fokuserad p Axel att det b rjade se ut som en personlig korst g att s tta dit honom Sedan kommer den sista delen av boken, och h r ins g jag att jag precis som polisen har ocks har stirrat mig blint p ett sp r Jag ins g inte alls hur det skulle sluta, och jag blev verkligen f rv nad ver v ndningen i handlingen Jag som trodde att jag hade listat ut allting fick inse att jag verkligen inte hade r knat ut allting Se mig, Medusa r en intressant bok, d r allting inte r som det verkar Jag kan inte s ga att jag gillade Alex speciellt mycket, m...

    This, the first of four books by Torkil Damhaug, had an intriguing and compelling start to me and I found the writing very atmospheric The central character, Axel, is a medical doctor who is a twin However it is a long time since anyone has seen his twin brother and it is clear very early on that there is a story to be revealed I did find many of the characters interesting and well fleshed out and I felt that the translator had done a very good job in this book The action in the first half or so of the book I found convincing and compelling Axel, a happily married man, is bewitched by girl considerably younger than him He tells stories of Castor Pollux and Medusa to his young daughter There is a darkness which I found effective I found the latter part of the novel a little different There was no way I was going to put it down as I ...

    Sadly, I just could not love this book, while Axel, our main character started out as an, interesting believable character, a doctor with a life that makes sense he then goes off the rails as murders occur around him, murders possibly linked to his estranged twin brother I found nothing convincing or believable about him going off the rails He does random, idiotic things with insufficient character development to make them comprehensible In fact, through the main part of the book it is rare to be given any insight into his character at all, everything about him seems superficial and nonsensical view spoiler this is especially true of his affair with Mirriam, a main plot element It is not unreasonable to expect some explanatio...

    I really enjoyed this book I can see why people might give this a low rating though It s very different in the sense that you can work out a who committed the crime quite early on, if you re looking hard enough Then the fun becomes working out how the detectives will eventually u...
