Item Details

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 storied 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 links the two victims. But then there's another murder, and shortly thereafter one of Van Veeteren's colleagues, a promising female detective, goes missing - perhaps because the criminal knows she has come too close to the truth. . . .

Opinion

From Library Staff

Chief Inspector Van Veeteren of Sweden is divorced, grumpy and cynical, and his love of dark beer, books and chess is probably greater than his love for his job. But his intuition and ability to read people have made him a highly successful detective.
