    Twists and Turns

    A severed foot, a missing county commissioner, and a cold case murder are all on Detective Ann Lindell's mind. While she concentrates on the severed foot case the other cases seem to start solving themselves. Can they possibly be connected? Work is not the only thing on her mind as she starts to discover the personal mysteries raging in her own psyche.
    With so much going on in this novel; I can't say much without giving spoilers.
    This is the first of the series that I have read and I cannot wait to read the others. My only complaint is that I don't feel like I got to know the characters as well as I should have. I am hoping that when I read the others that will change.
    Otherwise I really enjoyed this novel. The timing was perfect for a good mystery and the twist and turns made it exciting. I never felt overwhelmed by the side stories and I never felt impatient to get to the end. I recommend this one to anyone, especially those who enjoy crime novels or a good mystery.

    an engaging complicated mystery

    In 1993 in Uppsala, Sweden, Commissioner Sven-Arne Persson leaves a council meeting, but never is seen in town again. The townsfolk assumed he killed himself though no corpse or note was seen. A dozen years later, an Uppsala resident Jan Svensk is in Bangalore, India is on a business trip when he sees Sven-Arne on the street and later in a restaurant. Sven-Arne likewise recognizes his Swedish neighbor and muses that his life as an illegal immigrant laborer is over.

    At the same time in Uppsala, Detective Ann Lindell visits Detective Berglund in the hospital recovering from an operation to inform him a female foot inside a boot with no other body part has been found on the shore near Oregrund. Lindell investigates in an area overwhelming with single males including her ex lover. She also looks into a cold case homicide that Berglund failed to solve back in 1993.

    The latest Detective Lindell Swedish police procedural (see The Princess of Barundi, The Cruel Stars of Night, and The Demon from Dakar) is an engaging complicated mystery that grips the audience on several levels with a need to know. First there is the question as to why a person left his power position to become an illegal laborer in a foreign land; second is his vanishing linked to the cold case homicide; and third the severed female foot belongs to who and the saw culprit is whom. Loaded with action and a strong cast, readers will enjoy this terrific mystery as Kjell Eriksson deftly ties everything together.

    ***

    By far, much better than his first 2. This one had more depth and 2 fairly complicated plot lines going at the same time. It was almost as if someone entirely different had written this one. (All 3 had the same translator.)
    I don't know that I'm going out my way to recomend it to an avid mystery fan--well this definitely more than the first 2. Still a ways behind Steig Larson and Henning Mankell.

    Interesting plots and characters that have you thinking. Just like a good Poirot mystery....you can't figure a lot of the truths until the end!
