Publisher: Random House (Audio)
Date: February 2016
Duration: 19 hours 57 minutes
The irascible, obdurate, and very thirsty Detective Superintendent Evert Bäckström of the National Murder Squad returns in a new novel from the reigning master of Scandinavian fiction.
Its the dead of summer in the sleepy town of Växjö when twenty-year-old police cadet Linda Wallin is found lying facedown in her mothers apartment, brutally murdered and raped. With no clear motive or suspect in sight, a series of bureaucratic mix-ups causes the National Crime Unit to send Bäckström and his team into the countryside to solve the case. The ever-irritable Bäckström leaves his beloved goldfish behind, checks into a local hotel, and begins to reconstruct the night of Lindas murder. But with more than a few bottles in tow, and a constantly growling stomach to look after, things dont go so well, and Bäckström has to rely on the help of his colleagues to solve the crime - no matter how angry that makes him.
