“Killer’s Art” by Mari Jungstedt / Reviewed by Clay Stafford

“Killer’s Art” by Jari Jungsteadt

Today’s Killer Nashville Featured Books take me around the world, but they all have two things in common: non-stop suspense and brains.

“Killer’s Art” comes to us from one of Sweden’s most popular crime fiction writers Mari Jungstedt.  The theft of a painting and the battered and naked body of an art dealer set this mystery in order.  This well-crafted police procedural is the fourth in the series and features ongoing characters police superintendent Anders Knutas and reporter Johan Berg and takes place on a Martha’s Vineyard-type island on the Baltic Sea called Gotland where we see the contrast between the glittering art world and the shadowy, savage Gehenna underground surrounding it.  As usual with Jungstedt’s books, this is a thriller that will make you care about the characters as you explore those from different economic and erudite worlds.

Until next time, read like someone is burning the books!
