dark and gloomy but great read,
This review is from: Woman with Birthmark (The Van Veeteren Series) (Paperback)
The book opens with a woman standing in a cemetry, a lone mourner at her mother's funeral. A man is then shot twice in his chest and twice below the belt following a series of phone calls where nothing is said but music is played down the line. Shortly after a second man, seeminly unconnected is killed in the same way.
Inspector Van Veeteren is struggling with a cold but must find some sort of connection between the two men before someone else dies. This book switches between the viewpoint of the murderer and the ongoing investigation. It is a good read and another Scandinavian author I would recommend trying. This book is the fourth in the Van Veeteren series but can be read as a stand alone novel
