A brother and sister believe that their father has gone missing. They think he may have traveled in search of his father, who was presumed lost decades ago in World War II. Meanwhile, there are reports that a woman is being abused, but she can’t be found and her family won’t tell the police where she is. Two missing people and two very different families combine in this dynamic and suspenseful mystery by the Swedish master Åke Edwardson.

Gothenburg’s Chief Inspector Erik Winter travels to Scotland in search of the missing man, aided there by an old friend from Scotland Yard. Back in Gothenburg, Afro-Swedish detective Aneta Djanali discovers how badly someone doesn’t want her to find the missing woman when she herself is threatened. Sail of Stone is a brilliantly perceptive character study, acutely observed and skillfully written with an unerring sense of pace.

Atmospheric entry in the Erik Winter series. Winter is more well-rounded in this story than in previous ones, and is thinking about building a house by the sea for his family. An old girlfriend asks for his help finding her missing father, who departed to look for his missing father who disappeared after traveling to Scotland. He ends up traveling to Scotland to find out what has happened, looking into it with a British detective he knows well. Meanwhile Winter's colleague, Anete Djinali, is looking into a case nobody else seems to take seriously. Neighbors have reported that a woman is a victim of domestic violence; her husband has left, her family has swooped in and scooped her up, and Anete can't help but feel something is terribly wrong. Both stories proceed without great urgency, but in prose that is oddly poetic. I enjoyed it, though Edwardson's cops never seem to have much on their plates and operate more on intuition and meditation than anything else.read more

I read all of this author's other books, most of them twice, but I had great difficulty understanding Sail of Stone and couldn't finish it which is unusual for me.read more

Beginning in Gothenburg, Sweden, this latest in the series featuring Chief Inspector Erik Winter moves mysteriously back and forth between Sweden and Scotland. Writing in his stream of consciousness style, Edwardson takes us inside the heads of Chief Inspector Winter, who travels to Scotland on the trail of a missing person who just happens to be the father of an old girl friend. Winters wrestles with his own feelings as well as the questions involved in a case where the only living witness suffers from dementia. The old girl friend and her brother report their father missing after he has gone off to Scotland, possibly in search of his own father, who disappeared off the coast of Scotland at the beginning of World War II. When they don’t hear from him for several days, they assume the worst, but how do they begin? At the same time, detective Aneta Djanali is searching for a woman who may be the victim of abuse, if she could only be located. Her investigations lead to the discovery of a ring of thieves who are systematically cleaning out apartments in Gothenburg, and the missing woman’s father may, or may not, be involved.The story is realistic in the way the characters’ thoughts wander to personal issues even as they strategize about how to approach the cases they are working on. Inevitably their personal issues and relationships become intertwined with the cases.Sail of Stone is a journey into the minds and emotions of the characters as well as the physical journey from Sweden to Scotland, and this physical journey becomes the crux of the solution to Winter’s feelings about his life, and well as providing the solution to a 70 year old mystery.
