Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A YOUNG WOMAN IS DISCOVERED hanged in a room in a decrepit hotel, and Gothenburg’s Chief Inspector Erik Winter must try to figure out what happened. As Winter looks around, he realizes that he was in the same hotel room many years earlier, when it was the last known location of a woman who subsequently 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.

The young woman’s parents are bereft and unable to explain the puzzling contents of a note she left behind. Winter, however, senses that they are holding back some secret that might help him to find her murderer. As he pursues his hunch and digs into the old police report on the woman who disappeared—one of his first cases as a young detective—Winter becomes increasingly convinced that the two cases are somehow related. 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: Winter, the veteran detective who veers between pessimism and optimism but never gives up; Bertil Ringmar, the methodical old-timer whose analytical mind keeps everyone focused; hotheaded Fredrik Halders, whose temper sometimes overwhelms his passion for justice; and Aneta Djanali, Halders’s girlfriend, 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.

Book Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 228 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. A woman is discovered hanged in a hotel room in Gothenburg. She was murdered, not a suicide. She left behind a note that she wrote apparently just before her death. Her parents are bereft and unable to explain the puzzling contents of the note. But Chief Inspector Erik Winter wonders whether the family is holding back some secret that might help identify the murderer. Meanwhile, Winter recalls that one of his first cases as a young detective concerned a young woman who disappeared, and oddly the same room in the same hotel figured in that case, too. As Winter reviews the files for the earlier case he discovers some connections to the recent murder. As Winter pursues the clues from the old missing-person case that connect to the recent murder, he becomes convinced that the missing woman was also murdered -- possibly by the same person who committed the recent murder. This discovery leads Winter to the murderer, but nearly costs Winter his life. Room No. 10 is a first-rate police procedural, infused with the gray seaside atmosphere of Gothenburg, Sweden, a city that is as much a character in the book as any human character.
