Set in the once-great Midwestern city of Trude--a treacherous maze of convoluted shopping malls, barricaded libraries, and elitist assisted-living homes--Lundgren's novel follows a disconsolate legal clerk named Sven Norberg, who sets out to investigate his wife's disappearance. Written with boundless intelligence and razor-sharp wit, The Facades is a comic and existential mystery that unfolds at the urgent pace of a thriller. The Facades has been met with rapturous reviews upon its publication, and will be read and discussed for many years to come.

A novel that is effective, fast-paced, and an emotional roller-coaster-- this book notably has some of the best descriptions I have read in some time. A must-read.

requires a certain amount of concentration but very enjoyable.
