A young woman is discovered hanged in a room in a decrepit hotel, and Gothenburg's Chief Inspector Erik Winter must try to figure out what happened. As Winter looks around, he realizes that he was in the same hotel room many years earlier, when it was the last known location of a woman who subsequently disappeared and was never found. The two women seem to have nothing in common except for this hotel room, but Winter suspects that there may be other connections.

Another great book from Ake Edwardson, #7 in series so far of Chief Inspector Erik Winter. Great read and wonderful author.

If this book is supposed to reflect the tedium of a police investigation, it works. Like all of his other books , but this one was tedious.

This is the first of the Eric Winter novels that I have read. I will probably read more.
This is a genre that I am very familiar with; it is the classic detective novel with an incredibly implausible story line. The twists and turns left me wanting to continue turning pages although I kept thinking what a complete idiot Chief Inspector Winter, the main character, actually is.

In spite of the potential for the material (gruesome murders) to be offensive, the author handles the story very well without dwelling on the sordid details of the crimes; he gives enough detail for you to get the point without leaving you nauseous. I would think the material would be suitable for anyone over the age of about 16 but should satisfy those who have a taste for the more gruesome of detective novels.

Not very exciting story. Really want to like the book, but just can't...

Maybe something got lost in translation but the plotline was disjointed and the ending deeply unsatisfying.
