In her latest book to be launched in the U.S., Mari Jungstedt doesn't disappoint with her clever and fast-paced crime novel, Killer's Art (Stockholm Text, February 25th 2013, $14.99 paperback, $8.99 ebook).
On a cold Sunday morning, a man is found hanged on the old city wall that surrounds Visby, the capital of Gotland. The victim is a well-known art gallery owner, Egon Wallin, which sends fear and questioning throughout the island. Where was he going so late at night when he was brutally murdered and who was he going to see? Days later, the famous painting "The Dying Dandy" is miraculously stolen in Stockholm and disturbing links to the murder of Wallin start to surface, taking the reader into the intriguing art world of Sweden and the underworld of gay prostitution and drugs.
In Superintendent Anders Knutas' toughest investigation of his career, "Killer's Art" is a chilling read that keeps the reader going to the very end. Set on the picturesque island of Gotland, Sweden, the gritty murder makes for a sharp contrast with its beautiful surroundings.
