A secretive and dubious religious sect comes under investigation as one of their young members, a girl on the cusp of puberty, is found dead in the forest, brutally raped and strangled. Adopting to remain silent over the incident rather than defend themselves, the members of The Pure Life—led by their intelligent but perturbing messiah figure, Oscar Yellineck—simultaneously anger and mystify Van Veeteren and the other detectives on the case. What’s more, the girl’s murder was tipped off by an unidentified woman, whose role becomes doubly perplexing as a string of increasingly horrifying new crimes defies everything the police thought they knew about the case and its sequence of events.

    " Dull and boring at times. "

    " I liked the story but you could tell the narrator was built around who the author imagined himself to be as a detective. It was a little boyish; The narrator/author was sexist and his interrogation methods focused on berating/screaming at the witnesses and victims. Pushing witnesses is one thing, but slamming your fist down on the table and yelling sarcastic remarks doesn't seem to be 1) effective 2) accurate police procedure 3) logical. Nesser made all of the detectives seem like overzealous schoolboys intent on proving their "manhood" by catching criminals and securing Freedom for All. But not before commenting on how a female child purity cult distracted him because it made him feel impotent. Oh, and that one victim -- She was really hot. Maybe he should go track her down first and see what she's up to. "

    " A different sort of detective to the usual. He decides to have a nice meal and glass of wine instead of rushing off to the next interview. Quite refreshing. 3 stars as I never had that 'I can't put this down' moment "
