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'!

'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.Read more ›
