Review by tbrennan1
This is first novel in the Inter-Crime series translated from Swedish to English. A worthy successor to Mankell and the Wallander novels. Someone is murdering prominent Swedish business leaders and causing panic among the public. The solution of the Police is to form a specialised unit from different local Police forces to concentrate on catching the "killer or killers". One of policemen picked is Paul Hjelm ,who is under investigation himself for shooting an unarmed man during a hostage siege. The author develops the plot and characters extremely well and manages to sustain the tension right to the end of the crime novel .
