As this is the last ever 'Shetland' novel it is a great disappointment all round. It is obvious that the author can't wait to get rid of Perez and the plot is thin and hackneyed, the murderer and motive easy to deduce. And as for the spoilers but just think "chick lit". Jimmy Perez deserved a far better send off than this. For all die hard 'Shetland' fans, just give this book a miss. It is truly dreadful.
