Only a week after losing his wife, a distraught Detective Kimmo Joentaa returns to work to join a murder inquiry. It is the case of a woman smothered in her sleep--a curiously tranquil death, it seems, and one with no motive--and Kimmo becomes obsessed. The only clues are a half-empty bottle of red wine, two glasses, and a missing painting, a blurred landscape of no value. When a young man is found murdered in bed the next day in a hostel room with seven people asleep around him, Kimmo realizes a serial killer must be at work.As he struggles with the memory of his wife's early death, Kimmo investigates the murders and tries to understand the mind of the perpetrator, who appears to be quiet, self-effacing, and affable--why then the urge to destroy? Set in Finland during the unnervingly long days of late summer near the top of the world, Ice Moon is an unsettling, poignant mystery.

This was my first book by Jan Costin Wagner and I find his writing very easy to follow. This psychological thriller was good from start to end and I look forward to reading his next three (3) books.

FIRST BOOK IN Kimmo Joentaa SERIES. GERMAN AUTHOR

Strange, introverted, sorrowful, slow going and sad book. We have like two or three stories going on at the same time. And murder is the least of the author's preoccupation. Some things remain unexplained, such as why the German guy is asked to come up; why the killer killed; why the dead wife is always aroud the corner. And the end is something else. I mean, really. This is more a book of a man trying to deal with the death of his wife than a mystery novel. A bit tirering at time.
