Description
It is a cold wintry morning in the picturesque port town of Visby when art dealer Egon Wallin's battered and naked body is found hanging from a gate in the town's old city walls, in this first novel of Mari Jungstedt's Anders Knutas/Johan Berg series to be published in the United States. When the famous painting The Dying Dandy is stolen in Stockholm, links to Wallin's murder begin to surface, taking Detective Superintendent Knutas into the glittering world of the Swedish art elite and exposing a shadowy underground of prostitution and drugs. Formerly known as a broadcast journalist, Jungstedt has become one of Sweden's leading crime writers. Her novels featuring Knutas and Berg, a journalist, are set on the Baltic island of Gotland, and several of their cases have been adapted for television.

"Jungstedt delivers an excellent clammy atmosphere and a constant premonition of weird deaths to come. She's becoming one of Scandinavia's best crime writers, no mean compliment in a crowded field."—Times (London)

"This is one of the best in Jungstedt's captivating crime series featuring Swedish policeman Anders Knutas and reporter Johan Berg and set on the island of Gotland.... [This] tightly written and twisty crime novel [leaves] series fans wanting more. It doesn't matter if series newcomers haven't read the previous titles; the book is so well crafted that novices can easily pick up speed."—Library Journal (starred review)
