The debut thriller in the internationally acclaimed series available for the first time in the United States
A long-time number one bestseller in his native Sweden, еke Edwardson`s profile was conspicuously raised when his novel Frozen Tracks was chosen as a finalist for a 2008 Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Until now, however, the novel that launched Edwardson`s critically acclaimed Erik Winter series has never been available in the United States. With a new series translator who fully captures Edwardson`s signature atmospheric style, Death Angels is America`s introduction to Sweden`s youngest Chief Inspector as he teams up with Scotland Yard to solve the mysterious parallel killings of young British and Swedish tourists. Richly evocative of mid-nineties South London and Gothenburg, Sweden, Death Angels is a brilliant opening to a mesmerizing series that has become a phenomenon in international crime fiction.
