Viking Private Investigation: Season One (Viking P.I., #1) by Tommy Ueland
A fun collection of stories about a quirky Norwegian private eye!
After the writer-hero makes an unforgettable mistake in his marital relationship, he finds himself out on his ear and divorced. Trying to keep body and soul together while he writes his first novel, he turns to working as a private eye.
Viking Private Investigation: Season One is a collection of short stories recounting cases from the Viking P.I.’s past, including some ghost-chasing, saving a dentist being trolled on social media, and even helping one of the most famous porn stars in Norway.
I am so glad I picked this book up! You know, every now and then, you just randomly come across a book that turns out to be a little gem? Viking Private Investigation: Season One was one of those gems for me. The book was easy-to-read, and the author has a comfortable, self-deprecating writing style that is funny and engaging, and I liked how matter-of-fact and straight-to-the-point his investigations were. Despite the lack of complexity, the stories were still very entertaining. I’ve already gotten the next book in the series; I enjoyed this one so much.
I recommend VIKING PRIVATE INVESTIGATION: SEASON ONE in the Viking P.I. series by Tommy Ueland to mystery readers that don’t want unnecessary complexity in their stories and don’t want to take anything too seriously.
