Description
It's May and the snow has hardly melted in Göteborg, Sweden, but things are heating up quickly for Detective Inspector Irene Huss in the Violent Crimes Unit. The body of a teenage girl is found in the woods, naked and horrifically scarred. Then there's the mummified body that is discovered bricked up in a chimney on a demolition site, not to mention the city's ongoing problem with gang violence. With the sudden influx of cases and one detective out on maternity leave, everyone is stretched thin. To make matters worse, Irene feels more than a little intimidated by the new superintendent, Efva Thylqvist, who uses her sex appeal and smooth talking to bend the predominately male staff to her will.

Then a second young girl is found, wearing what appears to be the other half of the sexy lingerie set recovered near the first body. Fearing the two cases are linked and that the killer may strike again, Irene and her colleagues embark on a desperate hunt that takes them deep into a shadowy world of anonymous online predators and insecure teenage girls on a deadly quest for affirmation.

        In Tursten’s assured eighth novel featuring Det. Insp. Irene Huss (after The Beige Man), two teenage girls without any history of trouble go missing and later turn up as mutilated corpses. As gruesome as the murders are, what rattles Huss and her Gothenburg police colleagues is the realization that the girls are wearing two parts of the same bikini set. If these crimes are linked, could there be a serial killer stalking other girls? Meanwhile, workers discover a mummified corpse in the wall of a building being demolished. Huss’s new boss, Supt. Efva Thylqvist, unloads the old corpse case onto Huss’s previous boss, Supt. Sven Andersson, but she’s determined to ignore Huss. It takes all of Huss’s hard-earned skills to maneuver Thylqvist into allowing her to mount an aggressive operation to catch the killer. Andersson’s lower-stakes pursuit of the mummy mystery provides a welcome change of pace from Huss’s investigation as it builds to a nail-biting climax.

        Goteborg's Violent Crimes Unit never has a nice day. But this summer they're especially hard-pressed by diminishing numbers and a caseload that's soared a lot faster than Swedish temperatures. Hardly have detective inspectors Irene Huss and Jonny Blom, already shaken by a rash of violence between feuding biker gangs, taken on the case of Alexandra Hallwiin, 14, who was found strangled five days after she went missing, than an enterprising dog finds a sadly similar victim in the woods. Fifteen-year-old Moa Olsson, who was killed shortly before Alexandra, stands out for her surprisingly expensive taste in clothes and accessories. Forensic evidence leaves little doubt that the two girls were murdered by the same sex killer, a man who assumed a series of false identities to befriend them online. But Irene's new boss, Superintendent Efva Thylqvist, seems unwilling to let Irene join Jonny in working Alexandra's death. The boss has problems of her own: Inspector Birgitta Mosberg-Rauhala remains out on leave while she's pursuing a law degree, and the discovery of a corpse in a building that's being demolished after a fire threatens to tax the Violent Crimes Unit to its limit. Even worse, the mummified corpse, once it's identified as that of Mats Persson, who vanished in 1983, is linked to a series of crimes that go back as far as 1940. Will the VCU ever emerge from these two investigations to see the light of day again? The case reaching back in time is considerably more tangled and less urgent than the one that points disquietingly toward the future, threatening to claim new victims. Through it all, DI Irene Huss remains appealingly unflappable under pressure.

        November 1, 2015

        In the latest series installment (after The Beige Man), the already overworked Violent Crimes Unit of the Goteborg Police Department is handed two murder cases when the naked bodies of two teenage girls are found in remote areas outside the city. Crime scene evidence suggests that this may be the work of a serial killer, and Huss and her team turn to the Internet to explore the online world of pedophiles. Complicating the investigation is a personality conflict between Huss and the new female superintendent. On its own this would make an absorbing, albeit disturbing story. For some reason the author decided to add a distracting, unrelated cold-case murder to the plot. Also there is some dated-sounding dialog about computers and cell phones, which probably has to do with the original Swedish version having been written seven years ago. VERDICT Fans of Tursten's series and of Swedish crime fiction in general will enjoy this novel if they can overlook its shortcomings.--John Napp, Univ. of Toledo, OH

        Detective Inspector Irene Huss of the Goteborg, Sweden, Police Department has her hands full. Demanding most of her attention is a serial killer using social media to find lonely young teenagers. The killer is smart, using nearly untraceable public Wi-Fi to connect with the girls. But as she's demonstrated in previous cases (The Beige Man, 2015), Huss is indefatigable, though she could use more support from her new superintendent, a canny female administrator who seems to be playing favorites with the male staff. Her old boss, Sven Andersson, now working cold cases, is currently tackling the decades-old murder of a man whose corpse was recently unearthed after an apartment-house demolition. Fans of the big-name Scandinavian crime-fiction writers (Mankell, Larsson, Nesb) will be delighted to discover there are already eight books in Tursten's intriguing series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
