Publisher's Summary

Between Summer's Longing and Winter's End is the first novel in a trilogy that is the defining account of the unsolved assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olaf Palme in 1986 that still haunts the collective Swedish memory. Beginning with the death of an unknown American citizen in Stockholm, Persson slowly unravels the complex web of international espionage, greed, sheer incompetence and a poorly constructed Swedish intelligence force, that in this fiction lead to the murder of the Prime Minister. This is a riveting insider's combination of black satire, thriller, psychological drama, and police procedural novel about the biggest police investigation in recorded history.

What the Critics Say

"Laced with irony and satire.... Reminiscent of Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson in its toughness.... Persson does a fine job of pitting one desperate soul against another in a philosophically charged tale worthy of Ingmar Bergman - but with lots more guns." (Kirkus Reviews)

    "Complex and Absorbing"

    If you want an easy listen, this is not for you. But if you want a complex, challenging book with plots and sub-plots, then this is well worth the effort. Expect to be confused at the beginning by the large list of characters, but you will get the hang of it. The work is fiction, but woven against the backdrop of an actual historical event, the assassination of the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986. To say more would be to give the book away.
