Between Summer's Longing and Winter's End is the first novel in a trilogy that is the defining account of the unsolved assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme in 1986 that still haunts the collective Swedish memory. Beginning with the death of an unknown American citizen in Stockholm, Persson slowly unravels the complex web of international espionage, greed, sheer incompetence and a poorly constructed Swedish intelligence force, that in this fiction lead to the murder of the Prime Minister. This is a riveting insider's combination of black satire, thriller, psychological drama, and police procedural novel about the biggest police investigation in recorded history.
"Laced with irony and satire.... Reminiscent of Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson in its toughness.... Persson does a fine job of pitting one desperate soul against another in a philosophically charged tale worthy of Ingmar Bergman - but with lots more guns." (Kirkus Reviews)
