Nils is now having a dinner date with his ex-wife. I just remembered how, in that one scene with the murdered woman's daughter (not sure how to spell her name), he told her that his life was an open book and she asked him whether he had a girlfriend. He said no, which was technically true, but he deliberately sidestepped an opportunity to mention that he had an ex-wife and that, at the very least, things between the two of them were a bit complicated.
Now he's annoyed because he saw that woman whose name I can't spell (I've looked at a bunch of reviews, and not a single person mentions her by name) at a bar with another guy, and all I can think is "well, you never mentioned your 'friends with benefits' relationship with your ex-wife."
Also, I just saw that the author was one of the writers for Seinfeld, a show I never really understood the appeal of. I wonder if fans of the show would be able to see it in this book's writing?
