“Society ends up with the adults it deserves. It's just a little more obvious nowadays.”
Åke Edwardson

“Is this your first case?' This from the ugliest person Winter had ever seen. His face resembled five pounds of meat loaf molded by an arthritic potter.”
Åke Edwardson, Death Angels

“Denmark was the world’s largest exporter of beer in 1972. An illustration showed how Ålborg’s infrastructure was likely to look in 1990: subway, a raised monorail around a city that the artist seemed to have modeled on something taken from the Liseberg Amusement Park. Mass transport by helicopter. Winter envied that era’s faith in the future.”
Åke Edwardson, The Shadow Woman: A Chief Inspector Erik Winter Novel
