First U.K. edition. The U.S. precedes the U.K. Translated from the Swedish by Laura Thompson. Fine in dust jacket. An ex-con is brutally murdered with an ax in Kaalbringen. Then the body of a wealthy real estate mogul is found, also the victim of a violent attack. There appears to be a serial killer on the loose, and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is called in to help the local police. In his career he has only left one case unsolved, but he's never before faced an ax murderer. As details surrounding the grisly murders are collected, Van Veeteren finds that there is almost nothing to go on. Nothing appears to link the two victims. But then there's another murder, and shortly thereafter one of Van Veeteren's colleagues, a promising female detective, disappears. Perhaps the criminal knows she has come too close to the truth. If you like the way Henning Mankell writes, this book is for you.
