Book Recommendation: Detective Inspector Huss by Helene Tursten
Detective Inspector Huss (1998, translated in 2003) is the first novel in the Detective Inspector Irene Huss crime fiction series by Swedish author Helene Tursten. This is an excellent novel and I recommend it for your reading list. I have provided a list of the books in this series below. The list was provided by Wikipedia. This book, by the way, is available on Kindle for $1.99.
"Inspector Irene Huss, stationed in Goteborg, is called through the rain-drenched wintry streets to the scene of an apparent suicide. The dead man landed on the sidewalk in front of his luxurious duplex apartment. He was a wealthy financier connected, through an old-boys' network, with the first families of Sweden. But the "Society Suicide" turns out to have been a carefully plotted murder. As more murders ensue, she tangles with street gang members, skinheads, immigrants and neo-Nazis-a cross-section of Sweden's disaffected-in order to catch the killer."
