The Demon from Dakar - blurb

Information has been scarce about the new book from Kjell Eriksson, The Demon from Dakar. I've managed to track down just these few lines in a Minotaur catelogue:
In Kjell Eriksson’s riveting new novel, his third to be published here in the United States, his series detective Ann Lindell finds that one of her leading suspects in a brutal murder investigation owns half of a fancy restaurant named Dakar. His partner has been killed, and everyone who works at the restaurant is under suspicion. And then more bodies turn up....

Another triumph, this unforgettable puzzle will cement Eriksson’s reputation among international crime writers.
The Demon from Dakar is published in the US on 29 April.

I've been lucky in that my library service has bought the first two. It took a while, so I may have a long wait for 'Dakar'...

Remind me again of the second? Is it a sequel to Princess of Burundi and this the third? Or are they all out of order like Nesbo and co?

Burundi is #4, Stars is #6 and I believe Dakar is #7. I do feel a bit adrift with the characters, having started so late in the series and then there's #5 missing so the Ann-Ola 'moment of weakness' isn't mentioned at all in Stars.

Petrona said...

Yes, there is a massive back-story to Ann-Ola that is evident from "Burundi" -- very frustrating not to be able to read it!

"Stars", eh, must look out for that...

The Cruel Stars of the Night - review coming soon...'fraid I didn't like it anywhere near as much as Burundi.
