9782757813058: Misterioso (English and French Edition)

The first novel in Arne Dahl's gripping Intercrime series--considered one of Sweden's best--"Misterioso" is a piercingly dark and absorbing detective thriller.
After dismantling a bloody hostage situation at a bank outside Stockholm, Detective Paul Hjelm is dropped into an elite task-force assembled to find an elusive murderer with a sophisticated method. The killer breaks into the homes of Sweden's high-profile business leaders at night, places two bullets in their heads with deadly precision, then removes the bullets from the walls--a ritual enacted to a rare bootleg recording of Thelonious Monk's jazz classic "Misterioso." As Hjlem and the rest of the team follow one lead after another, they must navigate the murky underworld of the Russian mafia, penetrate the secret society of Sweden's wealthiest denizens, and battle one of the country's most persistent ills: a deep-rooted xenophobia that affects both the police and the perpetrator.

About the Author :

Arne Dahl is an award-winning crime novelist and literary critic. He lives in Sweden.

Review :

"A truly fine crime novel." --"The Advocate"
"[A] superb police procedural...Dahl has created a brilliant character and a terrific story, and should that not be enough, this is a classic cop-shop tale of the old school." --"The Globe and Mail" (Canada)
"Arne Dahl's "Misterioso" is an endearingly dour procedural...[The] existential brooding is very much part of the novel's charm...most of the fun of" Misterioso" comes from the follow-the-power, follow-the-money games played by Hjelm and his associates. And while Dahl clearly sees detective fiction as having the ability to tackle hard-hitting issues of the day, the mystery's solution isn't lacking in good old-fashioned puzzle intrigue, either." --"Portland Mercury" (US)
""Misterioso" is a unique and wonderful book. It is part mystery, part police procedural, part existential philosophy, and part comedy. There is something so distinctive about this book that it resists categorization... There is not a dull moment. It seems like the Scandinavians are having a true renaissance in crime writing and Arne Dahl is right at the top." --"Mostly Fiction"
"Although this is Mankell's turf, Dahl handles it differently but also very successfully. Mystery devotees who loved Mankell's Kurt Wallander, and crime fiction 'lifers' who still treasure Sjowall's and Wahloo's Martin Beck, will want to add Paul Hjelm to their short lists of international favorites." --"Booklist" (starred)
"An exciting debut...Fans of hard-boiled detective and Swedish novels will enjoy this." --"Library Journal"
"Thoughtfully haunting and sometimes beautifully written, the first of Hjelm's cases to be translated into English is likely to resonate with readers of the Stieg Larsson trilogy." --"Kirkus" (starred)
"This is, without a doubt, one of the best Swedish crime novels of the year; well-written . . . and a chilling blow to the ways of contemporary society." --"Gotesborgs-Posten" (Sweden)
"A masterl

"Absorbing. . . . A dark, tense thriller."
--"Newark Star-Ledger
"
"Terrific. . . . Full of twists and turns, blind alleys and sudden assaults, procedural hassles and stakeouts. "
--"Providence Journal"
"Thoughtfully haunting and sometimes beautifully written, the first of Hjelm's cases to be translated into English is likely to resonate with readers of the Stieg Larsson trilogy."
--"Austin American-Statesman"
"Mystery devotees who loved Mankell's Kurt Wallander, and crime-fiction 'lifers' who still treasure Sjowall's and Wahloo's Martin Beck, will want to add Paul Hjelm to their short lists of international favorites."

"A truly fine crime novel."
