The Olufson brothers become caught up in the resistance movement after Harald takes a shortcut through the local German base. He stumbles into a secret area of the facility and works out that they're tracking British planes using radio waves. Desperate to get the message back to England and help the cause against Nazism we follow him on his risky plot and race against time to get this vital information into the right hands without getting caught.
A small team are working as a resistance force with British assistance but mostly untrained in espionage. They are caught by Peter Flemming a Danish police officer who empathises with the German command, seeks promotion at any cost and has an all encompassing grudge against the Olufson family following the humiliation of his father at the hands of theirs.
Will they manage to escape to freedom?
This could have been called "Five Take On A Collaborator " or perhaps "Biggles Flies West" except that title has already been used. OK there's no Timmy the dog just a cat called Pinetop, but in the Olufson brothers we have Julian and Dick, the older Arne is charismatic and assured while the younger Harald is clever and naïve, and Karen the 18 year old ballerina, pilot, aircraft mechanic and lust interest is the story's George.
The story though is so obvious; with no twists, turns or diverting side-stories you know from the start one who is going to die and who will take the "Hornet Flight" of the title to flee occupied Denmark, and in case you can't figure it out the blurb gives most of it away and the book is stuffed full of helpful signposts leaving you only to wonder when Harald will get his leg over Karen [spoiler alert: at the end - that wouldn't have happened with Enid, George wasn't that kind of girl] and whether Digby will get his wooden leg over Hermia [you'll have to read the book if you really want to know].
The reviews were good so I bought it.
It has a wonderful start with so much opportunity and this goes on till around half way.
From there is becomes predictable.
I know the authors style of writing but the highs and lows become repetitive and you know for every high, there is going to be the inevitable low.
I guest the ending at 3/4 in and then just rushed through it to get it over with.
Very disappointing in comparison to Pillars of the Earth but I was expecting more and a far less predictable finish.
P.S. I hate predictable finishes.
