Review of I Will Miss You Tomorrow

Very good.

The protagonist is a very peculiar character, a former policeman, an ex-convict and he’s pilled up due to his psychiatric problems. But still, he thinks, resolves, and has a sense of humor. It’s the best thing of the novel.

While he was in the police force he was: Inspector, First Officer, Volunteer for the Special Investigative Agencies, and officer in the Bureau of Investigation of Police Affairs (equivalent to Internal Affairs of American novels and films). He’s an expert in interrogations and he knows all the strategies.

The plot is fine and well developed. There’s a moment when you start to suspect the person responsible because, of course, there’s crime. In the end, that person is bad but not the worst.

It has very good moments: when Aske tries to commit suicide and isn’t capable, the autopsy, and more.

The dialogues between Aske and most of the characters are good too, but especially the ones he has with Gunnar Ore, his former boss and his ex-wife’s current partner. There are a lot of exes in the book.

The second in the series has already been published in Spanish and I’ve already started to read it. For now it’s staying on the same level.

Highly recommended and new within the Nordic thriller. It’s a bit reminiscent of the Department Q novels.
