What you need to know before your trail

While carefree teenagers celebrate the holidays in Gothenburg, tragedy waits to pierce the heady days of summer.

It is late when nineteen-year-old Jeanette bids goodbye to her friends and sets off for home. She takes a shortcut through the park… Next morning, police come to question Jeanette about her rape, but she has already washed away all traces of the crime.

When a second rape ends in murder, Chief Inspector Erik Winter starts a manhunt for a killer with a very specific method which reminds him of a case from many years ago…

Travel Guide

Booktrail travel around Erik Winter’s Gothenburg

Erik Winter’s home and stomping ground. Most of his novels are largely based here although some do head out to different parts of the world on his many assignments.

In this novel, there’s  a series of rapes in and around the city and its parks. A not very pleasant view of the coty at all!

Gothenburg is a fine city for a cop like Winter. It’s the perfect background for Ake as well since he’s worked at Gothenburg University as a professor, as a journalist and as a press officer for the United Nations. Plenty of issues and complex situations to merge into fiction!

Gothenburg was founded as a heavily fortified, primarily Dutch, trading colony, by royal charter in 1621 and is now the largest port in the Nordic countries. There’s also a large student population which feature many times in the novels Gothenburg and the many verdant parks (although not for nice reasons in the books!)
