Every once in awhile you find an author and a series that takes you by surprise, and you want to read the entire series. This was the series for me. This is highly packed with mental and physical anguish, murder and mayhem, and one of the best police crime teams I have come across.

The author, Hakan Nesser, knows his worth. The skillful writing is what places these police procedural/mystery/psychological thrillers at the top of my list. I read Hakan Nesser's latest book, 'The Cry of the Wolf' first and liked it so much , I ordered his first, second and third books.

As this book evolves the characters react, and the psychological suspense is overwhelming. One by one the clues are discovered, people are interviewed, little bits of information not deemed important at the time turn into the big 'get'. The fear, anguish and thrill of the hunt are all placed in perspective. The detail, the suspense and the plot keeps us spellbound. Chief Inspector Van Veeteren , is a man who is described as gruff and unpleasant by those who have met him, exasperating by his closest colleagues, and an intelligent, industrious detective by his superiors. He has closed 20 of his 21 cases, and That one that got away keeps him in check.

I absolutely love the humor that the author imparts in this book. Beside the dark drama of the world of a killer, Chief Inspector Van Veeteren, imparts wisdom to his colleagues, like finding the solution involves finding out the secrets of the dead. The team work, the badminton games with his colleague, his unusual family life, and his dedication to his job, makes this murder mystery/police procedural one of the best I have read in recent times.

In this storyline, Van Veeteren is on the last day of his vacation. His superior calls! A gruesome axe murder has occurred. Would Van Veeteren mind staying on, the local police have requested assistance. Van Veeteren accepts the case, and off he goes. The police team has several good detectives, and they work well with VV. He is keen of mind, works with his team, and one by one the clues come together. The murderer may be a surprise, but I had an inner gut feeling.

Highly Recommend. prisrob 01-18-16

....As a former English teacher and mystery lover, it's so enjoyable to read really good prose and subtle complex character development, such as Van Veeteren himself. I love this series for Nesser's (and his translator's) command of language and a style that is not reminiscent of the trite law and order trial novels that call themselves mystery and suspense with the seemingly mandatory bit of sex thrown in. I did not guess, or more correctly guessed wrongly, but to me that is the hallmark of a great read in this genre. The Scandinavian, Italian, South American, many British writers, i.e. PD James seem to far exceed many of the 'crime' novels written elsewhere. It's not all shoot 'em up bangbang in real police work; there is a lot of downtime with thinking and 'life' happening in between. If you want a novel that is very well written, and that doesn't make you feel 'smug' about guessing the murderer halfway through, you will enjoy this for it's inherent value as an excellent piece of writing! (But read the series in order, as usual!)

I think the quotes from US newspapers on the cover of the book must have been written about some other book. "Keeps you on the edge of your seat. You won't want it to end." San Francisco Chronicle. I never once felt on the edge of my seat. I thought the book would NEVER end. In my opinion it should not have taken 321 pages to tell this story. I found the first 3/4 of the book boring and slow moving. The police force appears to be wasting time doing nothing but drinking wine, eating pastries, and thinking about themselves. The characters were all ho-hum. I didn't find it "cerebral... an atmospheric mystery" as claimed by The Plain Dealer. And the Richmond Times Dispatch's quote "A lean whodunit whose narrative speed and concision are admirable"- well, that leaves me wondering whether the newspaper's reviewer read the book or just made this up. Since this was Hakan Nesser's first book, I'll give his second book a try... but not right away. I recognize that a lot of work goes into writing a good novel so I applaud his effort. I've got a new Karin Fossum translation on my shelf. I KNOW that will be a winner.
