Mind's eye : an Inspector Van Veeteren mystery
Nesser, Hakan
Adult Fiction NESSER

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

World-weariness in a detective is well and good--but what if it ends up costing innocent victims their lives? That's the predicament in which Detective Chief Inspector Van Veeteren finds himself in this moodily affecting mystery, the first to appear in Nesser's native Sweden but the third to be published in the U.S. (after The Return and Borkmann's Point). Though the melancholy cop suspects accused killer Janek Mitter is innocent of drowning his new bride during an alcoholic blackout, Van Veeteren opts to focus on such more personally compelling matters as his own ruptured marriage and to let the judicial process run its course--until a second, truly shocking murder boots him and the book into high gear. The suspense intensifies as it becomes apparent that the initial killing was no garden-variety domestic drama but part of a bloody tapestry worthy of Greek tragedy. Even if you guess the book's final twist a bit early, this is a hauntingly powerful tale you won't soon forget. (June) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

When the convicted perpetrator of a drunken murder is also cut down, the Swedish inspector discovers something afoul in this precursor to the Van Veeteren series (The Return; Borkmann's Point), available for the first time in English. Award winner Nesser lives in Sweden and New York. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
