International Bestseller Hakan Nesser is firmly established as one of the world's bestselling crime novelists. And now the novel that introduced Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is available for the first time in English. The swift conviction left Van Veeteren uneasy: Janek Mitter woke one morning with a brutal hangover and his wife dead in the bathtub. With only the flimsiest defense, he is found guilty and imprisoned in a mental institution. But when Mitter is murdered in his bed, Van Veeteren regrets not following his gut and launches an investigation into the two murders. As the chief inspector delves deeper, the twisted root of these violent murders will shock even him.

Review quote

"Van Veeteren is the most appealingly unlovable hero since TV's crabby physician House." --"O, The Oprah Magazine" "Lean, atmospheric and full of existential uncertainty." --"Richmond Times-Dispatch" "The Mind's Eye" "satisfies on every level. It is an intelligently written, cleverly plotted tale, populated with believable characters.... Nesser was superb right out of the gate." --"BookPage"
