'Fifteen years earlier, a woman hired a detective to follow her husband, known as G to the police. Days later, she was dead. G was tried and cleared of her murder, but now, all these years later, the private detective disappears, leaving a note hinting he knows how G got away with murder. This is the final book in the series, but Nesser resists a showy finale, allowing his detective nearly to be outsmarted by an immensely clever criminal. (Sunday Times)
The final stunning mystery in the Swedish star's landmark Inspector Van Veeteren series: can Van Veeteren ever hope to find the solution to the case that has evaded him all these years - the G File?See all Product Description

Nesser brings an interesting aspect to the table, whether a person can be inherently evil. Veeteren has prior experience with Hennan and his cruel criminal mind-set, which is why he is convinced of his guilt. Regardless of the fact there is no way Hennan was anywhere near this particular crime scene at the time of the murder, Veeteren knows that he is guilty.
It took me till about three-quarter way through the book to figure out the solution. Yay, me. It sort of came to me like an epiphany.
In the second half of the book it was interesting to see how everyone still deferred to Van Veeteren with the same respect and authority, despite the fact he is retired by then and owns a bookshop. The police think nothing of including him in the investigation into the disappearance of Verlangen.
Verlangen is actually the reason the initial crime is brought back to the table after so many years. The perfect crime, which has haunted Veeteren for many years. He knows who and why, he just can't figure out how. It is such superb irony that the failed ex-policeman Verlangen is the one who stumbles on the solution and leads Veeteren to the how of it all.
This story has the subtle, slightly dark and smooth quality, which Nesser is known for. His characters are rough around the edges, acerbic and brutally honest. It was a treat, as always.

A book of two halves. Not his best but a good read all the same.Published 9 months ago by john c nixon
First half of the book runs along at a pace and keeps you guessing. Just felt that the final pages were a little rushed but great ending nonetheless. Read morePublished 12 months ago by soup
What a great story for Van Veeteren's last case and thank you Hakan for not finishing him off like poor Wallander. I have enjoyed all the books tremendously.Published 12 months ago by Dijijo
Who wrote this; not at all up to Hakan Nessers standard. I saved this for holidays and it was not worth the wait. Poor storyline, lightweight and trivialPublished 13 months ago by I love a well written story which piques the interest
