An absorbing mystery, with a huge cast of cop and crook characters. The plot is sinuous, a good thing in a mystery. However, it's not very suspenseful or "thrilling". It's called an "Ann Lindell mystery," yet she is a minor character. In addition, whoever wrote the dust jacket description apparently hadn't read the book. The blurb says Lindell's unborn child is in danger, but the kid is already several months old in the novel. And he is never in danger. Too bad, because it would have made more suspense.

While the setting is the gritter parts of Uppsala, Scandinavia noir it ain't.
