Synopsis

Winner of the Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel 2014



In the middle of an unusually hot Swedish summer, a young woman studying at the Vaxjo Police Academy is brutally murdered. Police Inspector Evert Backstroem is unwillingly drafted in from Stockholm to head up the investigation.



Egotistical, vain and utterly prejudiced against everything, Backstroem is a man who has no sense of duty or responsibilty, thinks everyone with the exception of himself is an imbecile and is only really capable of warm feelings towards his pet goldfish and the nearest bottle of liquor. If they are to solve the case, his long suffering team must work around him, following the scant few leads which remain after Backstroem's intransigence has let the trail go cold.



Blackly comic, thrillingly compelling and utterly real, Linda, As in the Linda Murder is the novel which introduces the reader to the modern masterpiece that is Evert Backstroem, a man described by his creator as 'short, fat and primitive'. He is, without doubt, the real deal when it comes to modern policing.
