Norwegian by Night

I bought Norwegian by Night by Derek B. Miller from the local bookstore on Saturday afternoon.  I finished it yesterday morning.  It's one of the those books you devour in a couple of sittings and manages to convey just about every kind of emotion.  The lead character - an eighty two year old former Marine now living with grand-daughter in Oslo - is a wonderful creation.  I'm still mentally digesting the story about how he goes on the run with a small child after witnessing the murder of the boy's mother.  I'll post a review in the next week or so, but suffice to say it's worth checking out.  Of the three covers I've seen browsing the internet, this one is my favourite.
