The Dangerous Game Anders Knutas Series 8 by Mari Jungstedt
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A multi-charactered crime tale centring on the fashion industry and the dreadful effect it can have on young girls prone to anorexia. We are introduced to a host of people and given much detail and background of their lives, no doubt to confuse us. It is Swedish but could be set in any fashion based city for its underlying message is universal. It stars the author’s series detective, Anders Knutas, in his eighth case.

Reviews

'Writers such as Henning Mankell may outsell Jungstedt in the UK, but - if there is any justice - she will not remain caviar to the general' -- Barry Forshaw

'There is an icy dispassionate grip to Jungstedt's writing that recalls Henning Mankell' Metro

'She is in total control of plot and pace, conveys chilling atmosphere and her characters are well above average for believability' The Times

'Jungstedt delivers excellent clammy atmosphere and a constant premonition of weird deaths to come. She's becoming one of Scandinavia's best crime writers, no mean compliment in a crowded field' The Times
