Milk and Other Stories - Simon Fruelund

I have read and for the most part really enjoyed the many thrillers and mysteries written by Nordic author. This, however, is the first time I read a book of short stories by one. Short book, many of the stories are three or four pages and yet I was enthralled.

I liked them all, I cannot say I understood them all, but I was compelled to continue reading. They are after all, short enough for me to re-read some of them and when I do I will probably see things I have missed. Hard to do stories this short, and still keep them interesting.
