Annie herself have been the 1st individual to find the our bodies of the travelers, on Midsummer night, while arriving with Mia, then a bit lady, to pitch in her lot with a commune within the desolate north of Scandinavia.
The novel then slowly recreates the worrying conditions of the homicide via an extended and extremely complicated mix of flashbacks obvious from varied issues of view, ahead of returning, on the starting of half II, to its starting-point and the subsquent revival of curiosity in a double homicide whose explanations had by no means initially been defined (and a assassin who had by no means been caught).
The plot itself is watertight, however the postmodernist narrative ideas deployed are advanced, and occasionally intentionally deceptive: details is crucially withheld to be able to strengthen and slowly raise an environment of suspense which steadily turns into overwhelming.
Yet there's even more than suspense and unsolved secret the following. The characters are advanced, and them all have anything to conceal, or at least shady parts in their pasts which they're unwilling to consider. The commune itself is whatever of a failure, and the projected dating there among Annie and Dan, the boyfriend who, ominously, fails to fulfill right here on her arrival, is the fruit of 1 of many
misunderstandings within the tale. And the desert itself services like a past due twentieth-century similar of these ominous adversarial landscapes within the novels of Thomas Hardy.
