Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Soho’s perennially popular Swedish crime series featuring Detective Inspector Irene Huss — jiujitsu champion, mother of teenage twin girls, and investigator on Göteborg Murder Squad — is back!

Three men have been shot in one of Göteborg's most fashionable neighborhoods, sending Detective Inspector Irene Huss and her colleagues on a goose chase through a tony world of expensive cars and fancy homes. All three victims seem to be tied to one person, the glamorous dot-com darling Sanna Kaegler-Ceder, but no matter which strategy Irene adopts — good cop or bad cop — Sanna is not speaking, even when her own life seems to be at stake.

Meanwhile, Irene’s partner and long-time friend, Tommy, is acting strange. Could he be having an affair with someone in the force? And what does Sanna have to gain by remaining silent anyway? Irene is desperate for answers... before more bodies hit the floor.

Review:

"The murder of Kjell B:son Ceder, the so-called restaurant king of Göteborg, kicks off Tursten's complex and compelling fifth Det. Insp. Irene Huss investigation to be published in the U.S. (after 2012's Night Rounds). Someone shot Ceder in the head twice at point-blank range. Suspicion initially focuses on his much younger wife, Sanna, who stands to inherit Ceder's fortune, but subsequent events force Huss and her colleagues to reconsider. Two other men are found murdered in the exact same way shortly after the first killing, and all three deaths may have a connection with a three-year-old financial scandal. The press had dubbed one of the other victims, Philip Bergman, as 'the Golden Calf' for his facility in attracting business investors. Once again, the doggedly effective Huss proves herself a capable and sympathetic lead in the service of yet another clever plot that effortlessly meshes police procedural and whodunit. Agent: Anneli Høier, Leonhardt & Høier Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In this fifth installment in the critically acclaimed Irene Huss series, three men are found brutally executed in one of Goteborg's most fashionable neighborhoods. All three men were involved in an online poker company, but that's all they appear to have in common. The complex investigation immerses Detective Inspector Irene Huss and her colleagues into a world of expensive cars, fancy homes and impressive castles in the air.

Meanwhile, the normally peaceful atmosphere of the Huss family is disturbed by marital tension as Irene suspects her husband Krister of a having an affair with a younger woman.
