Between Summer’s Longing and Winter’s End by Leif GW Persson

09/24/2010

Following in the footsteps of Stieg Larsson’s massive Millennium Trilogy , comes the first book in Leif GW Persson’s series.  Persson is no stranger to detailed police procedures; he is Sweden’s most renowned psychological profiler along with being an adviser to the Swedish Ministry of Justice and a profession at Sweden’s National Police Board.  His novel starts with the death of an American journalist in 1970’s Stockholm, it ends with the assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme in 1986.  In between is the efforts of an honest cop convinced the American’s death was not a suicide, but who’s efforts to uncover the truth are stifled by a career advancing intelligence chief not wanting the truth to come to light.  While it does start slow, the novel soon kicks into gear and from there never stops building until the climax.
