Publisher's Summary

A Swedish crime writer as thrilling as Mankell, a detective as compelling as Wallander....

Van Veeteren faces a chilling case in Håkan Nesser's The Hour of the Wolf, the seventh book to feature Chief Inspector Van Veeteren.

In the dead of night, in the pouring rain, a drunk driver smashes his car into a young man. He abandons the body at the side of the road, but the incident will set in motion a chain of events which will change his life forever.

Soon Chief Inspector Van Veeteren, now retired from the Maardam police force, will face his greatest trial yet as someone close to him is, inexplicably, murdered.

Van Veeteren's former colleagues, desperate for answers, struggle to decipher the clues to this appalling crime. But when another body is discovered, it gradually becomes clear that this killer is acting on their own terrifying logic....

The Hour of the Wolf is followed by book eight in the series, The Weeping Girl.

An unusual set of circumstances leading to a murder spree. Retired Van Veeteren becomes involved because his son is one of the murder victims and his intuition helps his former colleagues solve the crime and catch the culprit. Another well rounded book from Hakan Nesser and well narrated by David Timson. In this series Nesser's characters often seem to make abstract observations relating to the case at hand and about their lives in general, which may well be indicative of Nessers' own thought processes. This series is also in the top tier of my library.
