A private hospital and a murder are the perfect combination—add a blackout at midnight, and the resultant chills refuse to be quelled. Soon Irene Huss of Goteborg's Violent Crimes Unit, who is also a jujitsu champion, is on the trail of a ghost. Suzanne Toren's splendid narration captures fascinating Swedish police procedures and the ever increasing sense of menace as bodies and confusion mount. The warmth of Irene's family life (including descriptions of her chef-husband's luscious food) is the perfect counterpoint to the story’s bleak plot and climate. Best of all is Toren's rendering of Mama Bird, a mentally ill witness whose spirited description is the main link to the murderer. Many will enjoy this grand addition to the Huss series.
