Uppsala, Sweden Police Detective Ann Lindell works a difficult homicide case as she struggles to identify the victim found floating in a river. The corpse is eventually identified as Armas, a co-owner of the upscale restaurant Dakar. Ann visits the other partner, Slobodan Andersson who also owns Alhambra and has questionable financing connections and plenty of enemies.---------------- However the suspect list remains long besides Slobodan and his adversaries. Ann considers recently hired waitress Eva Willman and her two teen boys, chef Johnny Kvarnheden, homeless Konrad Rosenberg and Mexican peasant Manuel Alavez seeking to free his incarcerated brother.------------------- The fascination with this superior third Swedish police procedural (see THE CRUEL STARS OF THE NIGHT and THE PRINCESS OF BURUNDI) is the cast as perspective is told from various participants so that the same incident is seen differently and their political viewpoints especially anti Bush runs strong. The investigation led by Ann is wonderful to follow as she, like the readers, meet the restaurant¿s players who all have motive to kill the victim. A slight adjustment is needed to Swedish nomenclature as delineating the names of people and places require full concentration, but THE DEMON OF DAKAR is worth the time.------------- Harriet Klausner

To many characters. I will probaably resume reading this at a later date. Couldn't get into it.

I hardly ever quit reading a book and will suffer through some bad ones. I quit reading this book at about page 90, when I realized that I was not into the story or characters. It just took too long to set up the 'back story' that the 'current story' was lost. The lead detective did not appear in the novel until page 53. I read Kjell Erikson's other 2 novels and enjoyed the first one, but the second one not so much. So, sadly, I will not continue with the series.

I found the story laborious to read and the characters too one dimensional. I only finished the book to see what happened to the murderer.
