S the modus operandi of an allegedly deceased homicidal maniac known only as the Kentucky Killer As additional victims are discovered on the outskirts of Stockholm and the terror grows the team finds itself coming up empty handed Hjelm and Holm fly to New York hoping to discover both the killer’s identity and the source of his interest in Sweden What they uickly learn searching through the past is that bad blood always comes back around. Stockholm s A Group tasked with investigating crimes with international connections are following the trail of an American serial killer who appears to have murdered a Swedish citizen in New York and taken his seat on a flight to Sweden The routine investigation of a warehouse break in appears to throw up links to the killer and the team have to pull together all the lines of enuiry to try to track down a vicious and ruthless killerThis was an enjoyable read combining a police procedural with elements of a thriller It was a little slow to get started as there was uite a bit of scene setting with the backstory of the serial killings and in introducing the team A word of warning here this is a series that really needs to be read in order as there is a significant amount of reference to the previous book in introducing the team in the initial chaptersThe author likes to expound on social and political issues affecting Sweden and this could have been better integrated into the story However once the different plot strands start to be identified the action ramps up and the final third of the book is very exciting with a dramatic conclusion It certainly kept me reading on to find out what was really going on The different characters in the team are also uite well developed with flashes of their personal lives giving depth but not overshadowing their professional workOverall I enjoyed Bad Blood and will be reading from this series

On high alert but the killer manages to slip through the customs dragnet and vanishes into the night With no clear motive in sight Detectives Paul Hjelm and Kerstin Holm of Intercrime’s A Unit take over the investigation They learn that the method of torture used was not only a highly specialized means of extracting information secretly developed during the Vietnam War allowing the victim to whisper but not to scream but also that it wa. Bad Blood is the second in the Intercrime series by Scandinavian crime writerArne Dahl In this novel we meet again the team of police officers featured previously getting to know a little of their characters and what makes them tick They are an interesting flawed and varied set of personalities who gel into an effective crime solving forceTheir task this time is to find the American serial killer nicknamed the Kentucky Killer This is a particularly unpleasant murderer who uses pincers which enable his victims to whisper their secrets but not scream under torture Several problems arise in the course of apprehending the killer not least being the fact that evidence suggests he died in a car crash fifteen years previously However the recently committed killing of a Swedish literary critic would indicate that the Kentucky Killer is alive and well having moved from America to Sweden to carry out dastardly crimesThe task of finding the murderer before he continues his killing spree is a complex one The plot twists and turns in many interesting directions which made me want to keep reading to find the answers Although I found the last half of the book to be enthralling and almost impossible to put down I was disappointed with the opening section apart from the first chapter which seemed to drag and not hold my interest I also found that the text did not always flow smoothly possibly due to the translation However I shall certainly read books by Arne Dahl and would recommend them to those who enjoy gritty Scandinavian crime writingI received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Arne Dahl ¹ 9 Review

In Arne Dahl’s riveting follow up to Misterioso the Intercrime team is assigned the task of tracking down an American serial killer on the loose in Sweden uietly and as uickly as possible When a Swedish literary critic is found tortured to death in a janitor’s closet at Newark International Airport the police realize that the murderer made off with the victim’s ticket and boarded a flight to Stockholm Swedish authorities are placed. This better second book after Misterioso was written in the pre dawn of the current century and it has to be read with that awareness It is Swedish and so I think that awareness must also include the residual shock surrounding the assassination of Prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986 a crime without a certain perpetrator It is a police procedural serial killer novel of the kind I have been reading since finding David L Lindsey s Mercy 25 years ago So many have been written and since the cannibal genius Hannibal Lecter so many have been unreadable gaudy and repulsive over those years It has been redeemed in my view by the Millennium novels of Stieg Larsson Crime books of the best kind in the latter half of the last century and still have kept to the practice of exhuming details motives killers and their unusual mentalities Digging exposure then revelation and relief from the horror What I noticed here is a theme that is now to me dominant in the air that surrounds most of my reading Here is what one voice says at the conclusion of this book The Cold War is over What has replaced it almost feels worse because we don t understand what it is The world is shrinking and above all we seem to be shrinking This before September 11 meretricious wars the shallow culture of the web and a deeply harmed ideal of democracy As a reader my preference in crime novels is the book that addresses the unsolvable almost unknowable even invisible crime The detective may demonstrate a process of inuiry leading to justice but it is authentically about a darkness that is resistant to light something that cannot be exhumed Such books and this is one of them are about the irresistible desire to overcome that resistance Bad Blood offers the ualities of ambivalence and ambiguity that readers of the ancient SjowallWahloo novels about Martin Beck will recognize and appreciate Forget guilt forget innocence try to understand complicity and uncertainty As another voice says reading in the dim light of one small candle There can never be too little light The novel of course is set in ceaseless rain
