Winner of the Swedish Crime Academy Award for Best Crime Novel, international sensation Kjell Eriksson has quickly built a name for himself in the United States. In this highly acclaimed follow-up to The Cruel Stars of the Night, Manuel Alavez’s life is in ruins. One of his brothers is dead, the other is in jail, and the man who double-crossed both men is running a high-class successful restaurant. A series of dramatic events inevitably leads to murder, and Inspector Ann Lindell is forced to sample many fine meals at the restaurant as she attempts to thwart a cunning killer.

Praise for The Demon of Dakar

“Kjell Eriksson’s crime novels are among the very best.”
- Henning Mankell

“With Kjell Eriksson, what we find is an extraordinary depth of feeling for honest people caught up in serious crime. [In The Demon of Dakar], Eriksson shows how crime undermines the foundations of both family and community.”
- The New York Times Book Review

“Intriguing . . . complex . . . will appeal to fans of Fossum and Tursten. A must for the growing contingent of Swedish crime-fiction devotees.”
- Booklist

“Riveting . . . it’s hard to see how the author could do any better. Eriksson is a gifted storyteller and a great creator of character . . . terrific.”
- The Globe and Mail

“An outstanding series . . . links between the murder at Dakar and other violent crimes heighten the urgency as more bloodshed looms. . . . Ably translated—has a big cast and a wide canvas, but Mr. Eriksson is careful to keep the story on a human scale.”
- The Wall Street Journal
