In The Demon of Dakar, Ann Lindell and her motley crew of colleagues are faced with a most baffling murder case in which all clues lead straight back to a popular local restaurant named Dakar. The owner, Slobodan Andersson, has some shady connections in his past, and his partner's reputation is equally murky.

The kitchen crew is not above suspicion, either. The meat chef is an oddball, to say the least, while unbeknownst to the rest, the newest hire's personal life is a tangled web of lies. Even Eva Willman, the seemingly blameless older woman returning to the workforce as a waitress, has skeletons in her closet.

And then the tension rachets up a number of notches as it becomes apparent that one murder has not satisfied the killer in the least. If Ann is to prevent a bloodbath at Restaurant Dakar, she must match wits with a killer whose motives are seemingly completely obscure.

But the reader knows the killer well. His crimes are justified from his point of view. Not only that, he's a very likable fellow who is only looking for justice. As in all of Kjell Eriksson's compelling spellbinders, though, justice entails a frantic race to the finish, a race without rules and fraught with danger.

Winner of the Swedish Academy Award for Best Crime Novel.

This is my first read of a book by Kjell Eriksson. The somewhat haunting story of two brothers who are Zapotec—from Mexico, Manuel and Patricio, and their sometimes grim adventures in Norway, are really the focus of the tale. Ann Lindell is a detective who ends up searching for them in Norway, under the presumption that they are drug dealers. In the beginning, each main character's story is written separately and the reader has no idea how all these stories connect. Eventually the threads of each story become entangled, only to untangle at the end. The real drug dealer, and his partner, are main characters, also. As is a waitress who works at Dakar.
This author has the ability to inhabit the minds of all these characters as their story unfolds. By creating parallel stories, we are lead into the violent world of drug dealing, centered in the restaurant named Dakar.

It was a good, well written book but not as good as his previous novels. I was none too keen on the characters. Plus Ann Lindell was not in t he book as much as usual.
Andromathris
I read a lot of Scan Noir and this book rates as one of the worst so far. I can't even bring myself to get through the first half. Character development is painstakingly boring and so far the characters have no story. Nothing happens.

I really wanted to like this book, since I had read The Cruel Stars of Night and enjoyed it. Not so with this entry in the Ann Lindell series. Multiple changes of points of view made it hard to follow, but most of all, it just wasn't interesting, and the characters weren't sympathetic. Skip this one.

I don't understand the point of this book. Lindell is lazy, clueless, uncooperative, and completely unappealing as a fictional detective. There's no procedural, no interesting plot, just a bunch of random characters. The only good parts are the passionate pro-Zapotec human rights manifesto paragraphs. There are also many, many typos. The only mystery is how it got published.
The Sphinx of Driz
This was a very messed up book. Bounced around got lost with story lines and people then a non ending end. I love most of the Scandinavian books I have read or will be reading. No more, l hope as disjointed as this one.

GREAT READ
Yet another police mystery from Sweden (what is it with these Swedes? They have one of the lowest murder rates in the world and one of the highest proportions of murder mysteries).
This one is set in the cathedral town of Uppsala. Its strength is the way the author reveals the workings of an entire police department. We get to know several of the detectives, not only at work but in their personal lives as well. The panorama of the book then is quite wide. We also get an interesting cross-section of the seamier side of Uppsala society -- the single mother trying to raise two teenage boys and hold down a job, the disaffected immigrant community and we also see a little bit of Uppsala's underworld focusing on the burgeoning problem of drugs in a place which had been largely immune to such problems.
The book runs into difficulties when the author also tries to get inside the head of his villain (I'm not giving anything away here -- it is revealed early in the book). This is a Mexican who has come to avenge the death of his brother killed in a drugs deal gone bad. Here, the book goes completely wacky. How can this poor former illegal immigrant to the United States buy a ticket to Sweden, rent a car, murder someone and then hang out in open sight for weeks on end? The motive for the killing -- a tattoo -- is also unrealistic.
The end of the book comes as a severe anti-climax. So yes, there is a lot that is good here but I would view it as a flawed effort.
