A winner of three Swedish Crime Writers' Academy Best Novel Prizes and the Crime Writers of Scandinavia's prestigious Glass Key Award, H?kan Nesser "has a penetrating eye for the skull beneath the skin" (NYTBR). We are pleased to offer these early mysteries in Nesser's classic Inspector Van Veeteren series.
Track star Leopold Verhaven was convicted for killing two of his ex-lovers. He consistently proclaimed his innocence, however, and was killed on the day of his return to society. Following Borkmann's Point, this third case is more than a little perplexing and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is determined to discover the truth, even if it means taking the law into his own hands.
