'But he took out all the Princesses and beheaded them. I don't get it.' 'The Princesses?' 'That's the name of the fish. The Princess of Burundi' When the mutilated body of tropical fish collector John Jonsson is discovered in Uppsala the police are baffled - he may not have been a saint, but who would want to kill him, and in such a brutal way? Inspector Ann Lindell, working the case, is convinced that the killer has been swiftly identified, but then doubts begin to creep in: what if she's wrong? As increasingly sinister events begin to unfold, and Jonsson's family get further involved, Lindell and her team must unravel the complex clues and stop the killer before it's too late - Kjell Eriksson is already an international sensation - it's time to see why.

"A great detective book"
If you're a fan of twists and 'who done its' this book is for you. The book steadily builds up the characters who seemingly seem unconnected but it all comes together. The main characters are the police detectives who you really get to know through the book. I look forward to reading more of Kjell's books. This was the first audible book I listened to and now I'm hooked.
This book was slow to get into, once you got into it you were moderately intrigued- well, enough for you to listen until the end. The ending was rushed and confusing which just makes you regret having battled through the sometimes laborious narrative.
