Overview

Like his fellow countryman Henning Mankell, Åke Edwardson is a successful figure on the international mystery scene and a brilliant discovery for lovers of intricate, psychologically charged, and stylish crime novels. With Sun and Shadow, Edwardson introduces readers to detective Erik Winter, the youngest chief inspector in Sweden, who wears sharp suits, cooks gourmet meals, has a penchant for jazz, and is about to become a father. He’s also moody and intuitive, his mind inhabiting the crimes he’s trying to solve. In this atmospheric, heart-stopping tale, Winter’s troubles abound—and a bloody double murder on his doorstep is just the beginning.
