A Swedish crime writer as thrilling as Mankell, a detective as compelling as Wallander . . .

The Strangler's Honeymoon is the penultimate gripping Scandinavian crime thriller in the Van Veeteren series by Håkan Nesser.

Desperately lonely, sixteen-year-old Monica Kammerle has little idea of what she is getting herself into when she begins an affair with her mother's latest partner; the sophisticated Benjamin Kerran . . .

Months later, when a woman's strangled body is found, the Maardam police must discover who has committed this terrible crime. It isn't long before they realize the perpetrator may have killed before – and is likely to do so again.

Meanwhile former Chief Inspector Van Veeteren finds himself drawn into the mystery when a priest, who has learned dreadful secrets, appeals to him for help. But when the priest falls beneath the wheels of a train and the police find more dead-ends than leads, it seems Van Veeteren will have to come up with a new approach to unearth this dark serial killer. Before he chooses his next victim . . .

The Strangler's Honeymoon is followed by the tenth and final Van Veeteren novel, The G File.

MEDIA REVIEWS

I was swept away by Håkan Nesser's The Strangler's Honeymoon which is as gruesome, tense and droll as its title. - Sunday Times Books of the Year

A richly atmospheric addition to the series . . . Nesser contrives an impressive balance between a twisty thriller plotline and satisfying characters with believable quirks . . . his subtle touch when it comes to psychological insight and his confident storytelling make for an enthralling read. - Metro

Nesser produces crime writing that is so rivetingly written that it makes most contemporary crime fare - Scandinavian or otherwise - seem rather thin gruel. Nesser's tenacious copper, Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is one of the most distinctive protagonists in the field (lauded by no less an authority than Colin Dexter: 'destined for a place among the great European detectives'), and the baffling, labyrinthine cases he tackles have a rigour and logic all too rarely encountered. - Guardian

“Be prepared - a change of style.”

Having read all the previous Van Veeteren books I only managed three chapters of this latest, and lengthy, book before discarding. The book is again well written. However, Nesser has now turned to extreme - and... More
