I actually bought this book while I was in Sweden at a university bookstore, looking for something to read (that was in English) on my long plane ride home. As a fan of Henning Mankell, I'm always on the lookout for Swedish crime authors who have books that have been translated, as my Swedish is VERY beginner. I wasn't disappointed with this book, it was a quick read and had a surprise ending.
