In The Girl in a Swing
an English dealer in porcelain finds what
appears to be a perfect wife on a trip to Copenhagen. But there are
some strange things about Karin, and a slender but insidious strand of
horror comes sliding into their marriage and their quiet English village.
These 'epiphenomenal' supernatural happenings are the only clues to
the central mystery of the story, with the result that at the end we
are left with an unresolved psychological puzzle instead of any kind
of genuine resolution. Adams' writing is as good as ever, however,
so one doesn't go away completely dissatisfied.
