I am a fan of true crime and this story, despite being a translation from Swedish with all the complications that arise in translations - was an extremely well documented report of a Swedish murder. The author details the background, all the persons involved, the possible motives and the Swedish laws involved.
Now most true crimes don't discuss the laws, so that inclusion made this book a very interesting read. How the police could act, how the law could be used - all included - especially reference to the Murder Book - the set of 'informal' rules the police needed to factor into their investigation. As well as that we learned about the Missing People volunteer organization that searched for the murdered man's body.
The story was factually well presented, the characters well fleshed out and the outcome - as with all murders - inevitable.
