The Thirteenth Case

Åke Edwardson

The three-time winner of the Swedish Crime Writers’ Award is back with long-awaited return of Winter series.

THE THIRTEENTH CASE is the celebrated return of the beloved Detective Inspector Erik Winter, who on his way home from visiting his family in Marbella notices a curiously quiet couple on the plane. By accident, he’s stuck behind them in traffic in his car, and then becomes the only witness as they suddenly speed up and drive straight into a cliff.

As he is the first person on the scene, he soon finds that the woman in the car, Sara Brendner, was the sole witness to the brutal unsolved murder of her father thirty years earlier, and soon Erik Winter realises that the two events must be linked. To solve the mystery of the silent, intense couple, he must take on the cold case of Sara Brendner’s father, and soon he’s entangled in one of the most intricate investigations yet.

The twelve novels with Erik Winter have sold over seven million copies in 27 languages. The first ten novels have also been turned into TV-series with first Johan Gry and later Magnus Krepper as Erik Winter, broadcast internationally. In 2019 rights were sold to a Hollywood production company for Room nr 10 along with the option right to the rest of the series.
