A woman is found dead in a cemetery, strangled and covered in plastic. Just a few days before her death, the victim had received a flower, an unintelligible note, and a photograph of herself. Detective Inspector Irene Huss and her colleagues on the Goteborg police force have neither clue nor motive to track in the case, and when similar murders follow, their search for the killer becomes increasingly desperate.
Praise for the Irene Huss series 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" Excellent . . . incisive . . . affecting. "The Boston Globe" An absorbing, intelligent mystery that holds its own alongside the best feminine hardboiled novels currently being written. Maureen Corrigan, "The Washington Post Book World" Truly satisfying. "The Philadelphia Inquirer""
