»Mr. Huston brings some originality to Skinner’s lethal and disfiguring attack methods, but there never seems much at stake when he strikes. Skinner produces a firing range’s worth of targets for its main character to ravage, and some very protracted subplots, like a long episode spent hiding in Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s picturesque Old Town.«
