In this final installment of the internationally best-selling Irene Huss Investigations, the gang warfare that has been brewing in Goteborg is about to explode. A member of a notorious biker gang has been set on fire - alive. Even in a culture where ritual killings are common, this brutal assault attracts the attention of both Irene's unit and the Organized Crimes Unit. Anticipating a counterattack, the two units team up to patrol the lavish party of a rival gang, but that doesn't stop another murder from occurring just outside the event hall.
And that's not the only thing going up in flames. Someone has planted a bomb under Irene's husband's car. Fearing for her family's safety, Irene sends her husband and daughters into hiding and takes up residence at a colleague's apartment. Still, she can't shake the feeling that she is being stalked. Somehow, the gangs are always one step ahead of the police. Someone is leaking information. But who? Irene's life depends on discovering the answer.

I'm glad this is the last in the series.
Constant doggy talk, cookery hints and tips, a preoccupation with motorcycle gangs, the main character's family bring menaced... Sound familiar? If so you have probably read one of (or all) the previous books in this series. If you haven't you may enjoy this one, otherwise you may think you are just re-reading one of the earlier ones.
I have to say I really enjoyed the first couple of Irene Huss novels but I'm glad this is the last as I wouldn't be buying any more. I've tried to rate this book on its own merits but it is difficult when it is just replaying elements from the previous stories.
The translator seemed to be unsure if it was intended for British or American audiences. Some terms, for example 'pacifier' are American, others, like Customs & Excise, seem to be aimed at British readers/listeners. (Even though C&E ceased to exist in the UK in 2005, long before the book was written or translated.)
Some of the narrator's pronunciations were a bit idiosyncratic and did jar a bit, but only briefly.
I don't think you need to have read any of the others to enjoy this one, in fact probably best if you haven't.
