Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the Swedish Crime Academy Award for Best Crime Novel, international sensation Kjell Eriksson has quickly built a name for himself in the United States. In this highly acclaimed follow-up to The Cruel Stars of the Night, Manuel Alavez's life is in ruins. One of his brothers is dead, the other is in jail, and the man who double-crossed both men is running a high-class successful restaurant. A series of dramatic events inevitably leads to murder, and Inspector Ann Lindell is forced to sample many fine meals at the restaurant as she attempts to thwart a cunning killer.

Review:

"Intriguing . . . complex . . . will appeal to fans of Fossum and Tursten. A must for the growing contingent of Swedish crime-fiction devotees." Booklist

Review:

"Riveting . . . it's hard to see how the author could do any better. Eriksson is a gifted storyteller and a great creator of character . . . terrific." The Globe and Mail

Review:

"An outstanding series . . . links between the murder at Dakar and other violent crimes heighten the urgency as more bloodshed looms. . . . Ably translated — has a big cast and a wide canvas, but Mr. Eriksson is careful to keep the story on a human scale." The Wall Street Journal

Synopsis:

From the winner of the Swedish Crime Academy Award for Best Crime Novel comes this extraordinary work that shows how crime undermines the foundations of both family and community (The New York Times Book Review).
