Rock Paper Scissors - Naja Marie Aidt

This debut novel by a Danish poet is a literary whodunit set in an unnamed city - Stockholm or maybe Brooklyn, depending on your perspective. While cleaning the apartment of his dead gangster father, Thomas salvages a toaster, in which he finds a package. This brings on a psychological unraveling—and the novel ends up exploring the rock paper scissors one-upmanship of male interactions. Aidt’s characters are intelligently and warmly drawn, her voice is fresh and and she’s particularly good on family dynamics. It’s a suspenseful well-paced novel, but you can’t take the poetry out of this poet.
