The Story of a Crime

By Persson, Leif GW

Publishers Summary:
The first novel in a trilogy that has become the defining account of the unsolved 1986 assassination of Swedish prime minister Olof Palme—an event that still haunts his country’s collective memory.

Between Summer’s Longing and Winter’s End is a riveting insider’s combination of black satire, thriller, psychological drama, and police procedural about one of the biggest criminal investigations in recorded history.
