Mannen från bergen

Already a huge star in Europe and the Nordic countries Kjell Eriksson has American critics also raving with almost every review studded with words like stunning chilling suspenseful haunting and brilliantIn 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'. The title The Demon of Dakar is somewhat of a misnomer given that there are so many crimes and levels of criminals in this story that it would be difficult to point to a single one as being the demon A multi layered tale of greed hope manipulation drugs and death this was a meaty tale that examines that which makes various human beings tickReaders will have to decide for themselves along with the main characters whether he is the story s protagonist or one of its many antagonists This book is a police procedural in the loosest sense in that a police investigation is ongoing but it is one of the sub plotsThe Demon of Dakar in heavy in examining its many characters their thoughts and emotions their motivations I think author Kjell Eriksson is in the same writing neighborhood as some of his fellow Scandanavian authors such as Jo Nesbo and Hakan Nesser

Nt a bloodbath at Restaurant Dakar she must match wits with a killer whose motives are seemingly completely obscureBut 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 dangerWinner of the Swedish Academy Award for Best Crime Novel. This is an interesting mystery far interesting than the predictable tales of Guido Brunetti in Donna Leon s Venetian mysteries for instance Nonetheless I imagine Kjell Eriksson s mysteries have been somewhat eclipsed by the posthumous success of Stieg Larsson s sprawling novels What both share is a focus on a strong female protagonist though Erikkson s Ann Lindell differs markedly from the dark and somber Lisabeth Salander of Larsson Sadly Erikkson is also served very poorly by his translator andor editor There are definite issues with the translation but nothing a good editor could not have fixed easily enough Either the manuscript was in a much worse state when it was received by the American publisher and this is the best job they could do in cleaning it up or they were just too lazy to bother The number of mistakes which are so obviously a result of sloppy editing in my opinion are very distracting and detract from an otherwise interesting story

S reputation is eually murkyThe 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 closetAnd 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 preve. I m on page 67 and have already been introduced to 35 characters I had to make a list with each character s name and identity There is a good and important story here but it takes awhile to get there Three poor Mexicans are offered easy money to deliver packages by a couple of Swedes on a recruitment trip The oldest Manuel does not accept this job his two younger brothers do When the youngest brother dies in Germany during one of these jobs and the other brother is arrested and jailed in Sweden on drug charges oldest brother Manuel gets involved flying to Sweden I will leave it there The author writes good action suspense and emotion He writes an ending very well His introduction of characters was a morass
