Narrator Saul Reichlin contrasts the graphically described crimes in this Swedish mystery with the humble, soft-spoken police detective Joona Linna as he searches for the perpetrator. Listeners meet the families of the murdered young girls and the devoted couple, Pamela and Martin Norstrom, who might hold the key to the tortures and killings. The superb text and range of characters are enhanced by Reichlin's skillful delivery. Linna and his crew painstakingly sift through many false clues as victims continue to disappear. The rendering of a police raid on a club that feeds on man's baser instincts and the scenes of bloody shoot-outs are harrowing. Linna's humor and ability to unselfconsciously plead with his superiors to get what he wants add charm and levity. There is a conclusion--but also a cliff-hanger.
