Irene Huss is a former jujitsu champion, a mother of twin teenage girls, the wife of a successful chef, and a detective inspector with the Violent Crimes Unit in Goteborg, Sweden. And now she’s back.

One nurse lies dead and another vanishes after their hospital is hit by a blackout. The only witness claims to have seen Nurse Tekla doing her rounds, but Nurse Tekla died sixty years ago. Detective Inspector Irene Huss of the Violent Crimes Unit has the challenge of disentangling wandering ghosts and complex human relationships to get to the bottom of this intriguing case.

A cult hit in the first three novels of the series, the Irene Huss novels are available once again for English-language fans.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The warmth of Irene’s family life (including descriptions of her chef-husband’s luscious food) is the perfect counterpoint to the story’s bleak plot and climate. Best of all is Toren’s rendering of Mama Bird, a mentally ill witness whose spirited description is the main link to the murderer. Many will enjoy this grand addition to the Huss series.”


  • “One of the more domestic in the dark and violent Nordic crime field…Huss’ investigation delves into the history of the hospital and the local wealthy family who owns it, creating a taut and compelling mystery.”


  • “Tursten does an outstanding job of offering multiple plausible murderers, making this the rare procedural that actually requires the reader to evaluate alibis, motives, and means to solve the case.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “I couldn’t put down this finely crafted Swedish procedural with its complex story line and heart-stopping climax. In her fourth outing (after The Glass Devil), Huss works intuitively, and her family interactions add extra depth to the novel.”

    " I really like these novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Tara | 2/17/2014

    " I loved this book so much! The story is Scandinavian Noir, my favorite, and this author has added a touch of Scooby-Dooishness (if I may) to a dark and eerie mystery. I can tell you that murders are happening and a ghost may or not be the prime suspect in these killings. Great story, very engrossing and interesting, and I really like the main character Inspector Irene Huss as well. Loved it. "
