A second Erik Winter novel to be translated into English finds the Swedish detective struggling with a local heat wave, the responsibilities of new fatherhood, and a serial murder investigation with possible links to a five-year-old unsolved case. By the author of Sun and Shadow.

Blackwell North Amer
A heat wave is smothering the Swedish coastal city of Gothenburg. School is out, and parks and beaches are teeming with people. The sun sets late and rises early so far north, and with only a few hours of night there is little reprieve from the oppressive heat. But a spate of unsolved rape/murders casts a disturbing shadow on this particular summer. Chief Inspector Erik Winter, now forty-one and a father but as brooding and mercurial as ever, assembles the scant, grisly details of the crimes and begins to see an eerie connection to a five-year-old unsolved case, one that he, in typically obsessive fashion, has refused to let go cold. Has the same rapist reemerged to taunt the police and flaunt his stolen freedom, or are these copycat crimes? In the absence of any hard leads, and haunted by the case he could not solve, Winter desperately hunts for a link bridging the victims, convinced that each crime holds the key to the others. Someone knows much more than they are letting on, and Winter knows time is running out.

*** stars I enjoy this Swedish mystery / police procedural series ( Not as much as I love Wallander and Erlunder, but I am still getting to know Winter). This is the second book in the series. Young women are being murdered and / or raped in a park in Gothenburg. One such incident is separated from the others by several years. Is it the same perpetrator? A copycat? What do the young women have in common that marks them as victims. A mystery right until the end. Recommend. Now, however, I need to follow my own advise to others and go back to read the first book in the series: Sun and Shadow.
