Down For the Count (Pushkin Vertigo) - Martin Holmén,Henning Koch
" Harry Kvist in a magnificent comeback " 

This is one of those books that don't make me think of how much research the author has done to describe the 1930s well.
No- it feels like it was actually written back then. No out of place phrases, vivid descriptions of the setting and character traits. In some moments I even felt I could smell the streets and its inhabitants. 
Martin Holmén and his translator Henning Koch have done a great job.

They say every cynic was once a disappointed idealist. 
Harry Kvist is the type of character who'll make you question your morals. Inevitably reminds me of Bret Easton Ellis' characters. Every time I tried to dissect him, I was challenged by his being unpredictable. 
Would I ask him for a boxing advice- Of course!
Would I want him to be my friend- Yes/ Maybe
Would I dare ask him for a cigarette- No
Would I think of starting a fight with him- Hell no!
You never know what's in his head and that makes him intimidating, even scary. The only thing you know for sure- he'll keep his word. All all cost. Because as he himself says : you can't get away from a promise, " it's always honor and glory all the bloody way, but when you think about it, those are the only things the poor have". A man of his word, even of he's the only one who believes in it. 

This was my first encounter with the author and his magnificent character, and I can't wait to see more them!

I'm super happy with my december. I read lots of ebooks that I got from Netgalley. Just one book wasn't a review copy. I really wanna work on my pile of ARCs. I'm also just happy that I got back into reading and actually finishing books after last month was just a mess.
