Description
A gritty, bone-chilling masterpiece from the most acclaimed Scandinavian crime writer since Henning Mankell
It's summer in Sweden. As the coastal city of Gothenburg suffers through a heat wave, Chief Inspector Erik Winter broods over a series of unsolved rape-murders. The crimes bear an eerie resemblance to a five-year-old case that the mercurial detective has refused to let go cold. Has the same rapist reemerged to taunt him, or is a copycat at work? And can Winter find a common thread among the victims before there are more of them? With "Never End," Ake Edwardson brings American readers another installment of the smart, suspenseful, atmospheric series that has won him legions of fans all over the world.

Praise For Never End

"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."
-Booklist

"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
