About The Book
In an “absolutely mesmerizing tale” (New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart) from one of Sweden’s top crime novelists, police detective Erik Winter tries to solve two mysteriously linked murders.
A YOUNG WOMAN is discovered hanged in a room in a decrepit hotel with a mysterious note near her body. When Gothenburg’s Chief Inspector Erik Winter investigates, he realizes that it is the same hotel room that was, twenty years earlier, the last known location of a woman who disappeared and was never found. The two women seem to have nothing in common except for this hotel room, but Winter suspects that there may be other connections—and that both women might have even fallen prey to the same killer.
Room No. 10 is a first-rate thriller, suffused with the gray seaside beauty of Gothenburg and filled with the characters that Åke Edwardson’s readers have come to love: Erik Winter, the philosophical detective who veers between pessimism and optimism but never gives up; Bertil Ringmar, the methodical old-timer whose analytical mind keeps everyone focused; hot-headed Fredrik Halders, whose temper sometimes overwhelms his passion for justice; and Aneta Djanali, an immigrant from Burkina Faso whose ability to talk to other women can open new leads. As compelling as they are dedicated, they are an unforgettable team determined to find a bizarre killer.
