A fast-paced novel about two murders nearly twenty years apart that involve the same hotel room, from the internationally bestselling author of "Sail of Stone."
A YOUNG WOMAN IS DISCOVERED hanged in a room in a decrepit hotel, and Gothenburg's Chief Inspector Erik Winter must try to figure out what happened. As Winter looks around, he realizes that he was in the same hotel room many years earlier, when it was the last known location of a woman who subsequently disappeared and was never found. The two women seem to have nothing in common except for this hotel room, but Winter suspects that there may be other connections.
The young woman's parents are bereft and unable to explain the puzzling contents of a note she left behind. Winter, however, senses that they are holding back some secret that might help him to find her murderer. As he pursues his hunch and digs into the old police report on the woman who disappeared one of his first cases as a young detective Winter becomes increasingly convinced that the two cases are somehow related. "Room No. 10 "is a first-rate thriller, suffused with the gray seaside beauty of Gothenburg and filled with the characters that Ake Edwardson's readers have come to love: Winter, the veteran detective who veers between pessimism and optimism but never gives up; Bertil Ringmar, the methodical old-timer whose analytical mind keeps everyone focused; hotheaded Fredrik Halders, whose temper sometimes overwhelms his passion for justice; and Aneta Djanali, Halders's girlfriend, an immigrant from Burkina Faso whose ability to talk to other women can open new leads. As compelling as they are dedicated, they are an unforgettable team determined to find a bizarre killer.
