The Falling Detective

(2016)
(The second book in the leo Junker series)
A novel by

 
 
The second instalment in the internationally bestselling Leo Junker series.

Leo Junker is back in the snake pit - aka the homicide unit - after a murder case where he was the intended victim. Still abusing prescription drugs and battling his inner demons, he's doing his best to appear fit for duty.

Then a sociologist named Thomas Heber is found murdered. The only clues the police have to work with are Heber's cryptic research notes, which indicate that someone else's life is also under threat. But who?

Leo is put on the Heber case with his former nemesis Gabriel Birck, but when the case is abruptly reassigned to the Swedish Security Service, he realises this is no ordinary street mugging. Soon he finds himself entangled in a clash between a racist gang and their rivals, and enters a war that's being waged on the streets, in the public eye, and in the shadows.

PRAISE FOR CHRISTOFFER CARLSSON

'This is an incredibly strong crime novel, I would venture to say that among contemporary crime fiction it is in the absolute top! ... This is not a rush job, rather it is solid work crafted by a young man who impresses with his maturity and his analysis of the dark side of Sweden. If you like crime literature, don't miss these novels for the world!' LitteraturMagazinet 'This story hits at the very core of our contemporary society. What I like about this author is that he doesn't just focus on the suspense of the plot, but is a master at depicting how class and upbringing shapes us into who we are.' Aftonbladet
