One of the most prominent citizens of Göteborg, Sweden, plunges to his death off an apartment balcony, but what appears to be a “society suicide” soon reveals itself to be a carefully plotted murder. Irene Huss finds herself embroiled in a complex and high-stakes investigation. As Huss and her team begin to uncover the victim’s hidden past, they are dragged into Sweden’s seamy underworld of street gangs, struggling immigrants, and neo-Nazis in order to catch the killer.

Praise for Detective Inspector Huss
“An absorbing, intelligent mystery that holds its own alongside the best feminine hardboiled novels currently being written.”
—Maureen Corrigan, The Washington Post Book World
“Add the voice of Helene Tursten to the list of mystery writers who know how to craft a truly satisfying police procedural.”
—The Philadelphia Inquirer
“[Tursten] imbues this novel with a cold chill of dread that can’t be attributed only to the subfreezing temperatures of Göteborg in winter.”
“An intriguing portrait of the workings of a murder squad as well as modern Swedish life.”
