Having read Dan Brown’s Inferno

leave a comment »

A travel guide and intellectual debate disguised as a thriller. That is the main plan for a Robert Langdon story.
In my opinion the latest one, Inferno, is not quite as good as the three before. Too much of background stuff uploads itself into the foreground, so to speak. These stories should be read fast because the action is fast. This one seems to decrease tempo. Maybe I will try it again in one sitting, like I did with The Lost Symbol.

The St. Anna Altar is one of the less known gems of the Uppsala Cathedral. Made in the 16th century, it was located in the parish church of Skånela not far from Uppsala until 1912, when the Cathedral acquired it.
