Product description

One of the most prominent citizens of Goteborg, Sweden, plunges to his death off an apartment balcony, but what appears to be a "society suicide" soon reveals itself to be a carefully plotted murder. Detective Inspector Irene Huss finds herself embroiled in a complex and high-stakes investigation. As Huss and her team begin to uncover the victim's hidden past, they are dragged into Sweden's seamy underworld of street gangs, struggling immigrants, and neo-Nazis in order to catch the killer.

Review quote

"Add the voice of Helene Tursten to the list of mystery writers who know how to craft a truly satisfying police procedural." --"Philadelphia Inquirer" "An absorbing, intelligent mystery that holds its own alongside the best feminine hardboiled novels currently being written by Englishwomen Val McDermid and Liza Cody, and our own Sara Paretsky." --Maureen Corrigan, NPR, "Fresh Air" "The picture Tursten provides of Sweden's growing anti-immigrant resentment--embodied in Huss' skinhead daughter--imbues this novel with a cold chill of dread that can't be attributed only to the subfreezing temperatures of Goteborg in winter." --"Chicago Sun-Times"
