The Cryptographer

Tobias Hill

I always doubted that poetry and crime fiction fit well together. Hill proves they don’t. I like mystery, but don’t like it if the plot remains a mystery to me. I admire myself for having reached the last page (when I immediately threw the book away lest my daughter finds it and commits suicide).

Anna, a neurotic tax-inspector staggering through an investigation, falling in love with her “client” and in the end eats breakfast with her ex-lover/ex-colleague. Meanwhile she admires an expensive building encounters some crazy children and has cryptic conversation with Anneli, a Finnish lunatic. Some lines from classic poems without connection to the story and at least 50 dialogues with erratic and elusive allusions, sounding like this: “I knew I wouldn’t know. Would I?” “I knew you would not, even…” “Just what I thought, though.” Or something like that (mostly worse). I would have liked to write a spoiler review but couldn’t since I still don’t know what it was all about.
