What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Edwardson's series is as much about character interaction as it is about story, but he is no slouch at building suspense, and his ability to make the sweltering heat a kind of secondary character - as in Hitchcock's Rear Window-only adds to the tension."

"This series is a tough, smart police procedural. . . . Edwardson is a masterful storyteller. . . . This is crime writing at its most exciting, with great atmosphere and superb characters."
-The Globe & Mail, Toronto

"A novel with the most exhilarating final 50 pages in recent crime fiction."
-Toronto Star

Never End presents the possibility of the return, five years later, of a serial rapist. The emotional impact of the story unfolds in with the new victims and their families. But the most powerful chord struck immediately is the author’s treatment of the families of years ago, when everything is re-opened. He was so great at capturing grief, just like how the show THE KILLING handles the subject. I don’t understand how the qualities of these Erik Winter mysteries remain so good, time after time. Usually you disconnect to the awfulness of it all, but I find myself feeling strong emotions for the cops and the victims. I like some of the cops as people, as they are presented, and the way they interact with people in their jobs. They are not perfect, but I feel they are people. Not too eloquent to seem overly constructed by the author, but still revealing of character, their compassion for justice, and the amount to which they are decent, to name a few qualities. He also captures a cop’s struggle to detach from the crime, and the consequences/benefits of that, the wistfulness, dreaminess and hopelessness dealing constantly with tragedy, and the dreariness once expects from a northern, cold setting. My only, I won’t say critique, just an interesting observation, is a peculiar sense of shock and naïveté the cops experience when encountering underground industries, sex clubs, etc. in his mysteries. I don’t know if it’s my desensitization to violence and American culture, or if it’s just I can’t remember the years in which those types of crimes became prevalent, since these books weren’t recently written. All in all a great mystery, yet again, by Edwardson.

An exciting police procedural from Ake Edwardson, featuring Chief Inspector Erik Winter. In this one, a heat wave has Gothenburg in its grip, heightening the tension as the cops pursue a serial rapist. As usual, Winter faces personal problems, as do most of his colleagues, adding a layer of interest as the various members of the investigating team come into focus.

Not bad, but I am not tempted to collect the rest of the series. Inspector Winter stays rather one-dimensional, the plot and solution were too convoluted to my liking, and the book reminded me too much of the Wallander books - I prefer those but I've stopped buying them as well... Simply too formulaic for me. Anybody interested in Swedish crime novels: the Sjöwall and Walhöö series is still the best!¿

Excellent. I loved the mix of personal feelings and detective work the vulnerability and strength of Winter and others. You read with fear and hope never knowing if evil or goodness will prevail.
