A darkly gripping new mystery in the internationally bestselling Malin Fors series.

Linköping's top detective, Malin Fors, is about to take on a case that's a little too close for comfort. Her daughter has just discovered a dead body. It is that of a 79-year-old resident at the nursing home where she works. He's been hanged by his own alarm cord.

At first it looks like a straightforward suicide. But when the autopsy suggests foul play, Malin uncovers some disturbing rumours about the home's management and its millionaire owner. Was it a mercy killing, or was someone trying to silence the victim?

Who could possibly benefit from the death of an elderly man? Only someone with a lot to gain - or a lot to lose...

Praise for the Seasons series: — -
Kallentoft's books have been called beautiful, exquisite and original. I can see why. — Literary Review
One of the best-realised female heroines I've read by a male writer. — Guardian
Meditative. Dark. Really, really cold . . . This is a worthy successor to Larsson's Millennium trilogy . . . This first installment in Kallentoft's crime series is a splendid representative of the Swedish crime novel, in all its elegance and eeriness. — Booklist Starred Review

Honky Tonk Samurai

Joe R. Lansdale
Authors:
Joe R. Lansdale

Hap and Leonard are not your typical private eyes. But what they lack in experience they make up with perseverance. Hap, a former 60s activist and self-proclaimed white trash rebel, and Leonard, a tough black, gay Vietnam vet, have finally decided to make their detective work official. Their first client: a mean old woman looking for her missing granddaughter. The girl used to work for a car dealership in town... but it seems like cars weren't the only things on offer. The mystery thickens to include blackmail, revenge, and an inbred family of hillbilly assassins who eliminate any threats to the operation. Only Hap and Leonard could turn a simple missing person case into a life-threatening showdown, and only Joe Lansdale could tell this story. Filled with hilarious dialogue, relentless pacing, and unorthodox characters, Honky Tonk Samurai is a rambunctious thrill ride by one hell of a writer.

When a family enjoying a walk in the woods outside Linköping, Sweden, discover the badly mutilated body of a young girl, Inspector Malin Fors is put in charge of the case. Malin immediately draws parallels between this case and one that has long haunted her- that of Maria Murvall. Several years ago, Maria was found in the very same forest, having been raped and brutally beaten. Since then she has lived in complete silence in a secure psychiatric clinic. When Malin meets a psychologist from a nearby hospital who mentions a third similar case, suddenly Maria appears to be a small part of a much bigger puzzle. But what happened that was so terrible it cannot be put into words? Malin is determined to get to the bottom of the case and finally uncover the truth of Maria's horrific past, no matter where it might take her.Translation © 2014 Neil Smith(P)2014 Hodder & Stoughton

Alice Draper was everyone's sweetheart. She was fun-loving and pretty and the wasn't fussy about her lovers: they included middle-aged businessmen and teenage tearaways. Years after she died, her murderer is still unpunished. Six of her lovers still have lives blighted by unspoken suspicion. Exiled to seaside Eddathorpe in November, Detective Inspector Robert Graham expects to have lots of time to brood about his failed marriage and his formerly promising career. Instead, he finds himself drawn into the Draper case, and unwittingly taking the lid off a suprising variety of old scandals. Some of which involve senior policemen...

One cocked hat, one red robe trimmed with black rabbit and one silver-gilt chain with a gold and enamel knobbly bit at the end...Eddathorpe's mayoral regalia has disappeared in the possession of Councillor William 'Klondike Bill' Lynch, a colourful drunk who has devised the perfect revenge on Eddathorpe's new mayor, his much-detested second wife Muriel. But the joke's not funny when Muriel Lynch turns up dead, with the regalia - and Klondike Bill - carefully arranged in the next room. And less funny still when Robert Graham's least-loved superior officer arrests Bill for a murder he probably didn't commit...
