Defekt (Finna #2)

When “Don’t Be Evil” Fails, Try “Don’t Be Boring”: It’s worked for us since 1958.

The first novella in this series answered the question about what would happen if a wormhole opened up in Ikea, I mean, LitenVärld.  I thought it was fun even though I wanted more world building.  I was so excited when I heard about this installment.

Derek is the perfect employee and dedicated to the company.  But the one day he calls out sick, a wormhole attacks his store.  Derek is assigned to help clean up the mess.  He finds out his perfect company might have flaws after all.

I adored this one and thought the length was perfect.  I loved the nod to the prior book.  I loved all the internal memos and policy manual tidbits.  I loved the characters and the consequences of Derek’s choices.  I love the #ownvoices rep.  I loved the ending

I know the author didn’t originally plan to write more set in LitenVärld but I am super happy to have gotten this one.  I also know I didn’t discuss the plot.  That’s cause ye should read the first book and this one too.  Arrrrr!

So lastly . . .

Thank ye Tor.com!

Goodreads has this to say about the novella (shortened by me cause spoilers!):

Derek is LitenVärld’s most loyal employee. He lives and breathes the job, from the moment he wakes up in a converted shipping container at the edge of the parking lot to the second he clocks out of work 18 hours later. But after taking his first ever sick day, his manager calls that loyalty into question. An excellent employee like Derek, an employee made to work at LitenVärld, shouldn’t need time off . . .

  1. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading this series – but your lovely review has certainly intrigued me, Cap! Though I’ll probably want to start with the first book – I seem to have had a character transplant over the last year and am curiously reluctant to crash midway into book series as much as I used to!


  2. I’m am so excited for this one, and can’t wait to read it when I get my preorder! The first book was great and I was hoping there would be more in this setting, so I was really excited to hear about the sequel. Maybe there will be even more? We can hope!
