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.

Reviews

"Gripping...An expert melding of sociological observation and psychological acuity." -Kirkus "An extremely accomplished cross between crime fiction and psychological thriller...on par with P. D. James." -Helsingsborgs Dagblad (Sweden) "Masterful...While +ke Edwardson possesses an undertone of humor, his work is full of darkness...With The Shadow Woman [he] establishes himself among the most exciting crime thriller writers in the country." -Motala & Vadstena Tidning (Sweden) "Erik Winter could be related to Elizabeth George's Sir Thomas Lynley, and the almost clinical descriptions might evoke pathologist Kay Scarpetta in Patricia Cornwell's books, while the social ambience could well be inspired by both P. D. James and Minette Walters." -SmslSnningen (Sweden) "A dramatic crime chase in Gothenburg, intelligently and excitingly told." -Der Spiegel (Germany) "[Here is] the opportunity to discover a Swede well removed from the 'Swedish model' and enter into the world of +ke Edwardson. Try this voyage, and you will return to it." -Marianne (France)
