In the middle of an unusually hot Swedish summer, a young woman studying at the Växjo Police Academy is brutally murdered. Police Inspector Evert Bäckström is unwillingly drafted in from Stockholm to head up the investigation. Egotistical, vain and utterly prejudiced against everything, Bäckström is a man who has no sense of duty or responsibility, thinks everyone with the exception of himself is an imbecile and is only really capable of warm feelings towards his pet goldfish and the nearest bottle of liquor. If they are to solve the case, his long suffering team must work around him, following the scant few leads which remain after Bäckström's intransigence has let the trail go cold.

The first book in the Evert Backstrom series

Feb 08, 2014

The author is racist and misogynist. The plot is poorly developed and there is unnecessary repetition of information throughout. There have been more and more scandinavian mystery writers these last few years and this is an example of another one who should not be published.
