The crimes bear an eerie resemblance to a five-year-old case that the mercurial detective has refused to let go cold. Has the same rapist reemerged to taunt him, or is a copycat at work? And can Winter find a common thread among the victims before there are more of them? With Never End, Åke Edwardson brings American readers another installment of the smart, suspenseful, atmospheric series that has won him legions of fans all over the world.
