By Pascal Engman & Johannes Selåker

THE THIRD INSTALMENT in Engman and Selåker’s Nightfall Series.

IT’S 1996, rave music thunders from Docklands, Stockholm’s prime underground music scene, while skinheads hang out on the helipad in Old Town. A well-known neo-Nazi is freed from a prisoner transport outside Norrtälje, north of Stockholm. Police officer Tomas Wolf is called to the scene, straight from his older brother Kristian’s funeral. 

EVENING NEWSPAPER JOURNALIST Vera Berg sees the escape as a chance to get back into good graces at Aftonbladet. She has been demoted to online reporter, and is prepared to take great risks to get back into the front pages.

WHEN VERA FINDS the fugitive shot dead in the woods, it becomes clear that something is not as it seems with the prison break. Who is involved and what were their motives? The trail leads to an anonymous network. Who is behind the unfolding events?

The Night Wanderer is a thoroughly exciting and well-written crime novel and the duo has succeeded in capturing the spirit of the times.

A new read-worthy instalment in the series. Fast-paced [..] but an even better portrayal of Sweden in the mid-nineties.

The year is 1996 and Engman & Selåker portrays the time and the country in a nearly perfect brilliant way. It is not so long ago, but it feels very distant.

The Night Wanderer is the third instalment in Pascal Engman and Johannes Selåker’s 90s series The Nightfall-series. It’s May 1996 and the dramatic opening sets the tone for a sweaty, well-written suspense experience that at the same time manages to retain the air of the 90s anchorage that also characterised the two previous books in the series – In Memory of a Killer and The Road of Ill Repute[…] Engman &Selåker balance this with their ability to put the 90s in contact with the present, to highlight problems and issues that we can see the consequences of today and that are still urgent. The Night Wanderer is undoubtedly the best and most and sweatiest crime read of Easter.
