I did feel there were places the author tried to lead readers by the nose a little too much: “Oh, Anders! To have been sent off on a mission you were never right for. To be regarded after your death as an error of judgment.”

That’s already in the text and we’ve already reacted to the horror of Swenson thinking of Anders’ death as a mere inconvenience to her.
