Supertunn story. Behöver endast läsa baksidestexten, ALLT står där. Finns ändå en liten charm som gör att man plöjer igenom den ganska så snabbt. En bagatell.

Wambaugh's tale of Hollywood cops trying to solve the murder of a bigtime movie producer is, as usual, peopled with burnt-out cops along with various crooks and losers. It's also larded with black humor and an underlying nihilism best taken in small doses.

It took me a few pages to get into Wambaugh's style but I am glad I did. While the book feels a little dated it was still a fun read. Wambaugh has a knack for making me laugh out loud.

Mer underhållande än spännande. Rolig läsning är det dock. Andra halvan betydligt starkare än början.
