A gritty, bone-chilling masterpiece from the most acclaimed Scandinavian crime writer since Henning Mankell
It's summer in Sweden. As the coastal city of Gothenburg suffers through a heat wave, Chief Inspector Erik Winter broods over a series of unsolved rape-murders. The crimes bear an eerie resemblance to a five-year-old case that the mercurial detective has refused to let go cold. Has the same rapist reemerged to taunt him, or is a copycat at work? And can Winter find a common thread among the victims before there are more of them? With Never End, �ke Edwardson brings American readers another installment of the smart, suspenseful, atmospheric series that has won him legions of fans all over the world.
As the summer sun beats down on the Swedish coastal city of Gothenburg, death has cast its own dark pall. In Edwardson's second "Erik Winter" mystery to be translated into English (after Sun and Shadow), the chief inspector and his team face a string of rape/murders eerily similar to those in a five-year-old unsolved case. In tracing the relationship of the victims to each other and uncovering their secrets, Winter finds his investigation taking an even more personal turn that leads to a shocking conclusion. Patrons who enjoy dark, moody crime novels set in foreign locales will want this. Strongly recommended for all crime fiction collections. [The Nordic crime wave continues with Karin Fossum's When the Devil Holds the Candle, reviewed above, and Mari Jungstedt's debut Swedish crime novel, Unseen, coming in September from St. Martin's Minotaur.-Ed.]-Susan O.
