Overview
The second installment of the internationally best selling Erik Winter series

It's August and the annual Gothenburg Party is in full swing. But this year the bacchanalian blowout is simmering with ethnic discord spurred by nativist gangs. When a woman is found murdered in the park-her identity as inscrutable as the blood-red symbol on the tree above her body-Winter's search for her missing child leads him from sleek McMansions to the Gothenburg fringes, where "northern suburbs" is code for "outsider" and the past is inescapable-even for Sweden's youngest chief inspector. Psychologically gripping and socially astute, The Shadow Woman puts this master of Swedish noir on track to build an American audience on par with his international fame.

Near the start of Edwardson's solid fifth novel featuring Insp. Erik Winter to be made available in the U.S. (after 2009's Death Angels), a fellow homicide detective of foreign background, Aneta Djanali, gets her jaw smashed when she intervenes in an assault during an annual summer party held outdoors in Gothenburg. Winter cuts short his vacation to investigate. Soon after, a woman turns up dead at the edge of a forest, possibly strangled, with no identifying papers on her body. The chase leads Winter from the unusually hot streets of Gothenburg to seaside towns in Denmark, from the biker wars heating up in Scandinavia to those that raged decades earlier when the Hell's Angels and Bandidos first arrived in northern Europe. This thoroughly satisfying police procedural offers forays into the murky waters of immigration and assimilation as well as the obsessive mind of the sleuth. (Oct.)
