"a clear-eyed examination of how the pettiness of village life mirrors the wider problems in a changing society"

Kjell Eriksson may not be one of the more familiar names of Nordic noir, but this welcome return for Lindell, a decade after her original series of cases concluded, is a clear-eyed examination of how the pettiness of village life mirrors the wider problems in a changing society. The plot may have all the acceleration of a Volvo, but it has the heft of one too.
