    DescriptionIrene Huss is a former Ju-Jitsu 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 with a gripping follow-up to "Detective Inspector Huss." 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 its first three installments, the Irene Huss series is available once again for English-language fans.

    Review quote
    Praise for "Night Rounds" A "Library Journal" BEST BOOK for 2012 Voted one of "Deadly Pleasures Magazine"'s "Best Mystery-Crime Novels of 2012." "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." --"Library Journal" STARRED review "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. --"Booklist " "In an excellent translation, the story flows smoothly, incrementally adding to the reader's knowledge until it all coalesces in the final pages. Recommended." --"Spinetingler Magazine" "Hurrah for the fad of Scandinavian crime fiction in the United States, because it's pushing and pulling some really good books into translation.... this is the "other" kind of Scandinavian crime fiction, a sturdy and well put together police investigation of murder and malice, with a detective team that's quietly likable.... it lets the calm braiding of plot threads gleam quietly, proof of Tursten's capable narration and sensible probing of human motivation." --Kingdom Books "I seriously couldn't put it down." --How Mysterious! Praise for the Inspector Huss series: "An absorbing, intelligent mystery that holds its own alongside the best feminine hardboiled novels." --Maureen Corrigan, NPR, "Fresh Air" "These days Scandinavian crime writers are thick on the ground. It's nice to see that the women can be just as bloodthirsty as the men." --"The New York Times Book Review" "As good as Louise Welsh's similarly creepy tour of Glasgow." --"Entertainment Weekly ""A superior Scandinavian crime novel.... Tursten does an outstanding job of of
