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.

Publishers Weekly Review

02 January 2012 – Two amorphous mysteries slowly take shape in Edwardson’s fifth novel featuring Chief Insp. Erik Winter of the Gothenburg police (after 2007’s Frozen Tracks). When Axel Osvald, whose daughter Winter was once involved with, disappears in Scotland while looking into the presumed drowning of his father, John Osvald, during WWII, Winter goes to Scotland in search of answers. Meanwhile, African-Swedish policewoman Aneta Djanali can’t let go of the case of Anette Lindsten, a possible victim of domestic violence who’s reluctant to let the authorities investigate. A puzzled Djanali and her colleague, Fredrik Halders, try to locate Lindsten and make sense out of the complicated tangle of her relationships after she goes missing. Edwardson’s ambling story reveals more about the complex psychology of Winter and Djanali than it does about crime or criminals.
