This is a Scandinavian crime novel set in a small town on the west coast of Sweden and is part of a series of books with the recurring central character, Inspector Patrik Hedstrom. It’s a well-paced thriller but a bit light-weight. Much of the story deals with the local society and their secrets, though a certain amount of comedy is added by the life of the lazy chief of the station. After reading a couple of the series, I would say to try Henning Mankell or Jo Nesbo first if you want to read some good Scandinavian Crime Fiction.
