Overview

From bestselling Scandinavian crime writer Åke Edwardson—whose books are international sensations in Europe—comes this gripping novel of suspense and character involving two missing persons, two detectives, and a mystery dating to World War II.

A brother and sister believe that their father has gone missing. They think he may have traveled in search of his father, who was presumed lost decades ago in World War II. Meanwhile, there are reports that a woman is being abused, but she can’t be found and her family won’t tell the police where she is. Two missing people and two very different families combine in this dynamic and suspenseful mystery by the Swedish master Åke Edwardson.

Gothenburg’s Chief Inspector Erik Winter travels to Scotland in search of the missing man, aided there by an old friend from Scotland Yard. Back in Gothenburg, Afro-Swedish detective Aneta Djanali discovers how badly someone doesn’t want her to find the missing woman when she herself is threatened. Sail of Stone is a brilliantly perceptive character study, acutely observed and skillfully written with an unerring sense of pace.

But one has to wade through a lot of verbiage to get to the finish line. Some quick changes in location and personalities in the middle of a chapter and just way too much dialogue or pages of which music was playing and why just didn't make the story any more interesting for me. Others may feel differently but it was a stretch to mark the book as a three star product.

This is the first Ake Edwardson book and I loved it. At times it was hard to keep the two story lines straight and some of the descriptions were a bit wordy. Overall I liked it and will read more of his books. I love it when I find a new author that I like.
