The Golden Calf

Helene Tursten, trans. from the Swedish by Laura A. Wideburg. Soho Crime, $26.95 (352p) ISBN 978-1-61695-008-8
The murder of Kjell B:son Ceder, the so-called restaurant king of Göteborg, kicks off Tursten’s complex and compelling fifth Det. Insp. Irene Huss investigation to be published in the U.S. (after 2012’s Night Rounds). Someone shot Ceder in the head twice at point-blank range. Suspicion initially focuses on his much younger wife, Sanna, who stands to inherit Ceder’s fortune, but subsequent events force Huss and her colleagues to reconsider. Two other men are found murdered in the exact same way shortly after the first killing, and all three deaths may have a connection with a three-year-old financial scandal. The press had dubbed one of the other victims, Philip Bergman, as “the Golden Calf” for his facility in attracting business investors. Once again, the doggedly effective Huss proves herself a capable and sympathetic lead in the service of yet another clever plot that effortlessly meshes police procedural and whodunit. Agent: Anneli Høier, Leonhardt & Høier Literary Agency. (Feb.)
