An ex-con is brutally murdered with an ax in Kaalbringen. Then the body of a wealthy real estate mogul is found, also the victim of a violent attack. There appears to be a serial killer on the loose, and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is called in to help the local police. As details surrounding the grisly murders are collected, Van Veeteren finds little to go on. But then there’s another murder, and shortly thereafter one of Van Veeteren’s colleagues, a promising female detective, goes missing—perhaps because the criminal knows she has come too close to the truth. . . .

    " It read easily but without flair. Too much padding in attempt to prolong little bursts of weak suspense. Too much extraneous detail about various characters' interior lives which was completely irrelevant to the story, without the saving grace of providing a different perspective into the human condition. This seems to be a common pitfall in this genre. Enjoyed the short snippets of the villain's POV. Other than the names, it felt generic. "

    " Not sure how I got wrapped up in Swedish crime procedurals, but there it is. This is a fun quick read, some nice different perspectives. Not as much character development perhaps, but who knows, it's part of a series. I'll give another one a try. "

    " Swedish author in translation. Promising series with a very interesting plot. This started out slow but got much better as it got going. There's not a lot of character development--I'm not even sure what the characters look like or their ages--which is a negative for me. But it was an enjoyable read and I found the mystery very intriguing. Will read more Inspector Van Veeteren. "

    " Another Nordic stabby-abby to get through, is how I felt at the start, but I quickly appreciated the slow-paced writing of Herr Nesser. It put me in mind of the sublime Martin Beck series, although it didn't reach those heady heights of genius. An intuitive Swedish loner policeman. I might read more of him sometime. "
