The Shadow Woman: A Chief Inspector Erik Winter Novel - Ake Edwardson - Google книги
The second installment of the internationally best selling Erik Winter series It's August and the annual Gothenburg Party is in full swing. But this year the bacchanalian blowout is simmering with ethnic discord spurred by nativist gangs. When a woman is found murdered in the park-her identity as inscrutable as the blood-red symbol on the tree above her body-Winter's search for her missing child leads him from sleek McMansions to the Gothenburg fringes, where "northern suburbs" is code for "outsider" and the past is inescapable-even for Sweden's youngest chief inspector.
Psychologically gripping and socially astute, The Shadow Woman puts this master of Swedish noir on track to build an American audience on par with his international fame. Also in This Series.

Shortly after Jeannette is raped, two other girls are killed in the same spot. All the victims have something in common, they are all around the same age when they are victimized.
Winter and his team of detectives are working diligently and methodically to solve the crime and they need a breakthrough. He returns to her bedroom, and looks at her photos again, and this time notices a photo taken in a room with an unusual brick wall. The parents are unable to identify where the photo was taken. There are multiple story lines in Never End by Ake Edwardson, which makes for a very interesting read.

In addition to the methodical investigation of the crimes, the interaction between Chief Inspector Winter and his team of detectives makes for a more compelling read. The story is very human because the characters are very well-developed and are dealing with issues that are relatable. There is also a romantic tension between Halders and Djanali.
One issue, which I was surprised by, was that of racism.
When most people think of Sweden, they think blond, blue eyes, but the character Aneta Djanali is black, and her parents are from Africa. One of the victims is also black and adopted. Where can the detectives find that room with the unique wall, and who are those unidentified people? If you love detective stories, and live in North America, you will find this story a little different, the pace is a bit slower, which is not a bad thing.
