Publisher's Summary

Irene Huss is a former jujitsu champion, a mother of twin teenage girls, the wife of a successful chef, and a detective inspector with the Violent Crimes Unit in Goteborg, Sweden.
It's May, and the snow has hardly melted in Goteborg, Sweden, but things are heating up quickly for Detective Inspector Irene Huss. The staff of the Violent Crimes Unit is stretched thin, with everyone on edge as they race to solve two murders amid the city's ongoing gang violence. Soon Irene and her colleagues are on a hunt that pulls them into the world of anonymous online predators.
One of Soho Crime's best-selling series. This latest installment is translated by critically acclaimed literary translator Marlaine Delargy. Irene Huss is an everywoman - a hardworking wife and mom with grouchy teenage daughters to worry about - but she's also a small-town superhero, a martial arts champion, and an intuitive detective.

Critic Reviews

"As good as Louise Welsh's similarly creepy tour of Glasgow." (Entertainment Weekly)
"These days Scandinavian crime writers are thick on the ground. It's nice to see that the women can be just as bloodthirsty as the men." (The New York Times Book Review)
"[Tursten] imbues this novel with a cold chill of dread that can't be attributed only to the subfreezing temperatures of Goteborg in winter." (Chicago Sun-Times)

Another great installment of Irene Huss

I love Helene Tursten's Irene Huss series in print, audio books, and the Swedish TV adaptions on MhZ International Mystery. One of the last Irene Huss episodes to air on MhZ was loosley the main plot of this novel, but I still enjoyed it. The secondary plot was also very good (and I especially loved that the characters had been students at Uppsala University!!!!!!).
