The Wolf and the Watchman, Niklas Natt och Dag's new mystery, combines the historical sensibilities of Hillary Mantel and C.J. Sansom with the noir instincts of Steig Larson and Jo Nesbo. In 1793 Stockholm, a watchman pulls a mutilated body from bog. What follows is a taut and gripping thriller with a pair of mismatched detectives: an ornery alcoholic veteran with the wooden hand and a consumptive, idealistic, meticulous lawyer. As their investigation takes them all over the city, we begin to see a web of deception, crime, and cruelty that stains even the most pure. As the proverb goes, homo homini lupus est - Man is wolf to man.

I absolutely loved The Long Call. In her new mystery, Ann Cleeves introduces us to Inspector Matthew Venn, who we meet as he embodies his diagram namesake, caught in between his past and future with a new case in his hometown on the coast of England. A murder on a beach leads to a kidnapping, as the pacing picks up for Venn and his team of fellow detectives, and the suspects get closer to his own personal life. An expertly plotted  mystery that will keep readers guessing until the final pages.
