Just as good as the first in the series and I am instantly wanting to read the next. The author creates interesting diverse characters, especially Inspector Paul Hjelm, along with the intricate plot we have a very enjoyable read.

Quirky telling of a police procedural which does not rely on a maverick, alcohol infused copper with a broken marriage but a collection of reasonably happy odd ball coppers only one having a rocky marriage. You may not like the way it is told but it is different and occasionally funny. As I said with the first one absolutely nothing like the TVseries.

Stockholm, Sweden has had a dearth of criminal activity in 'The National Criminal Police's Special Unit For Violent Crimes of An International Character', or A-Unit as known by it's occupants. Their task was to keep up with new forms of criminality before they reached Sweden. Sounds a little pretentious, but this group had solved a huge crime which kept this unit going. As chance would have it, an elite serial killer was on his way to Sweden, and he would touch down shortly at Stockholm's airport. The FBI notified A-Unit, and all the necessary info was faxed to the unit. The airport was surrounded, looking for someone, no name, no description arrived until 4 minutes after the suspect slipped through immigration. Now, the story begins.

It took me awhile to fully integrate all of the characters in the A-Unit, the FBI, the serial killer and his victims. Once, I understood the team method of the A-unit, I was on my way. As the bodies mount, the team gets to work, slowly, with not much evidence. This serial killer leaves nothing behind but the victim and the atrocities he committed. As the clues advance, the A-Unit, led by DS Hultin and his team, Hjelm, Chavez, Holm, Nyberg move on. A trip to New York City to look at the evidence compiled by the FBI leads to discoveries, and the team back home finds more evidence. The pace picks up considerably, and some of the action is a little out there.

I have not read the first book in this series, and many of the crimes solved in the first novel are referenced, however, this can be a stand alone novel . The relationships of the A-Unit are cohesive with some splits that are coming together. This novel is a good stepping ground for future books. After all, 'what goes around, comes around'!

This is the second book in the Arne Dahl Intercrime series, which goes from strength to strength. The camaraderie between the team of investigators is now quite established so I would recommend that the novels are read in the order of sequence; the back story enhances the understanding of the relationships. The political dimensions are quite prescient given that the original language version was published in 1998. Strong characterisation however is the selling point of these books, as is the quirky nature of the characters' daydreams which are presented at different points. An excellent book and (again) I will be moving on to the next in the series as soon as possible.

Format: Hardcover
Paul Hjelm and the team have had very little to do since they wound up their last case in The Blinded Man. 'Violent crimes with an international character' seem to be in short supply. And Paul is bored...

'What they needed was a robust serial killer, of a robust, international character, thought Paul Hjelm as he slid back into his orgy of self-pity.'

Be careful what you wish for! Even as Paul thinks this, a serial killer is on his way to Sweden - a killer who tortures his victims in the cruellest ways - a killer so professional he has eluded the FBI for decades. But why is he coming to Sweden? And is this killer more than just your 'ordinary' psychopath?

In this second instalment of the Intercrime series, Dahl lets us see how the team members have developed since their experiences the year before. Although Paul is still the main character, we find out more about the lives of the others, particularly Nyberg and Norlander, and this adds an extra layer of interest to the book. Paul himself, happily, is suffering much less from the existential angst that afflicted him so much in the last book. Back with his wife, he still has feelings for the enigmatic Kerstin Holm though their relationship has changed. Kerstin is a much more rounded character here - in the last book she really seemed only to be there to allow Paul to fantasise about her, but in this one she becomes a real person.

At first this looked as if it was going to be a fairly straightforward manhunt for a serial killer book, but when Paul and Kersten go to America to liaise with the FBI, it becomes obvious there are some strange and unexpected things about this killer.

I actually haven't finished reading it at the moment, but that can't stop me writing about it. Just like the first of the series it is totally compelling.The plot is complex, and requires concentration. The characters in the investigative team are given space to develop which isn't always the case with other writers in this genre.Grim though the case is I particularly enjoy the wry humour which permeates many parts of a very dark storyline.
