Malin Fors, Swedish detective

Police Superintendent Malin Fors is a new addition to the list of Scandinavian detectives translated into English. She is thirty-four years old, blond, divorced with a 13-year-old daughter named Tove. She works in the small city of Linkoping, Sweden,(pop. 104,000) which is about 100 miles southwest of Stockholm, a picturesque area but an economic backwater. Jobs are scarce and winter sports are the main activity.  Author Mons Kallentoft grew up in this area in a working class family. His books catch the isolated atmosphere of the town and its residents. Some reviewers dislike Kallentoft’s use of voices from the dead victims, a stylistic trend popularized by Alice Sebold’s The Lovely Bones. Kallentoft has worked as a journalist and a food critic. Autumn Killing, the third novel in a projected quartet will be released in the U.S. by Hodder & Stoughton in October 2012. Can spring be far behind?
