This week, crime fiction and Rap Sheet editor J. Kingston Pierce smiles at Misterioso by Swedish crime fictionist Arne Dahl. Says Pierce:
Allocated to a special national task force, Stockholm police detective Paul Hjelm hunts for a murderer who’s targeting prestigious businesspeople, shooting them in the head while listening to Thelonious Monk’s music. The case will pit Hjelm against the Russian mafia and expose the xenophobia that’s become all too prevalent in Sweden.Looking for previous Pierce’s Picks? They’re here.
