"The Cruel Stars of the Night opens one snowy day when thirty-five-year-old Laura Hindersten goes to the police to report that her father, a local professor, is missing. Inspector Ann Lindell and her colleagues can find no motive for the man's disappearance. And when the corpses of two elderly men do turn up, neither of the dead men is the missing academic." "Unexpectedly, the police get help from one of the professor's colleagues, who believes there is an astonishing link between the murders and the disappearance of Professor Hindersten. But as the pressure on Lindell increases dramatically, she is shocked to discover that the killer has many more diabolical schemes in store."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

It is too bad that I didn't write about this book soon after I read it. I now only remember small bits. I remember liking it, thinking about the title, appreciating the complexity. But I don't remember details at all. ( )

I was surprised to learn that this was only Eriksson's second book about Ann Lindell (the chief investigator on the case). The police team characters seemed to have been together for awhile and the author does a great job conveying a sense of a long-standing team working well together. I was looking forward to finding earlier books of the series but I guess I have to be satisfied with there being only one.

I liked the book a lot despite the fact that, to me anyway, there was no mystery of who the killer had to be. The mystery was, why the obvious killer was the killer. It certainly wasn't obvious to the police who, except for Lindell, never made a connection between the old professor's disappearance and the murders of the old men.

I thought the bit with the chess pieces and the potential connection to an assassination attempt on the queen was a total distraction. It might have work better if the author had explained a bit better what the connection was. The old chess match history was interesting but I never did get the connection.

But that was only a minor complaint. On the whole I enjoyed the book quite a lot. I had a hard time putting it down. ( )

Overall, a good mystery but how no one but a few convience store clerks did not figure out that Laura was starking raving mad is beyond me. Esp. Ann Lindell, who fell (quite literally) into the most basic of mystery plot traps. Overall, the relationships between the police officers is more of a focus than the mystery, which is not bad but the balance needs to be much better. Another one I'm glad I took from the library rather than buying it.

While Inspector Ann Lindell and her colleagues in Uppsala are investigating the murder of an elderly farmer, another one is murdered. Then another elderly man dies. The murders must be connected, but the investigators are unable to find a common thread. Perhaps they're related to the disappearance of an elderly professor a few weeks earlier, but again, any connection isn't immediately apparent.

This is a fairly solid police procedural, but I didn't like it as well as the ones I've read by Karin Fossum. The police didn't seem to work well as a team. Perhaps that's the fault of the department head rather than a flaw in Lindell's character. Lindell did withhold important information from her colleagues, and she went off on her own to follow hunches. Both of these traits got her into trouble. I don't like cozy mysteries with amateur detectives who unthinkingly put themselves into dangerous situations, and it's even more unforgivable when the investigator is a professional. The book ended abruptly with some threads unresolved. I've come to accept this as a characteristic of many Scandi crime novels. Readers who prefer a tidy resolution to their crime fiction might want to skip this one. ( )
