39 Hour of The Wolf by Hakan Nesser This is the darkest novel in the series that I have read so far. The story is solid in terms of its procedural approach but its up to the intuition of The (retired) Chief Inspector to solve it.

All Chief Inspector Van Veeteren can think of is he's getting too old for trawling through the detritus and misery of the human condition.
