The third and final book in a collection of three Ken Follett war time spy thrillers focused on another allied country - this time, Denmark. With Germans occupying the Danish territory, a fledgling resistance network takes shape, and this story follows the boy who tries to save the day, and the policeman trying to stop him.
Unlike in the last book, the bad guy is clearly a bad guy. He’s mean and spiteful, proud and in search of power, and that means you’re clearly rooting for the Danes to get their plan together. As always, the characters are well drawn, although I found some of the dialogue a bit stilted at times - and these weren’t all stiff-upper-lipped Brits either!
But overall, it’s a fun read, a spy thriller that isn’t too entrenched in the spy game, as most of the people participating are new or got involved accidentally.
