Reseña del editor
As a heatwave blazes in Stockholm, a series of women are found brutally murdered and the Criminal Investigation Department is getting nowhere. The murders bear all the hallmarks of Edward Hinde, the serial killer jailed by psychological profiler Sebastian Bergman fifteen years earlier.
Sebastian desperately needs some order in his chaotic life. The revelation that he has a daughter, Vanja, could provide this longed-for stability. But should he tell her the truth and risk destroying her life and career?
Forcing his way into the investigation, Sebastian soon learns that the murders are connected to him and that no one around him is safe. Including Vanja.

I thought this book, by well known screenwriting team Hjorth and Rosenfeldt, was slightly less satisfying than the first. Bergman is a man haunted by his past, when a tsunami killed his wife and young daughter. Now he wallows in women and alcohol, emerging occasionally to assist CI Torkel Hoglund's police unit when a serial killer is on the loose. He is self destructive and doesn't do a whole lot of good for those around him either. In this book Bergman is trying to mend his ways a bit, after a stunning (and slightly ridiculous) revelation at the end of the first book. He's not being very successful, but he is trying. Little does he know that someone is copycatting the murders of Edward Hinde, the serial killer that Sebastian helped capture years ago, and the one who made him a famous criminal profiler. The title might refer to the killer who is at work here, but it equally applies to Sebastian himself, who has been stalking a young colleague.
While I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was thrilled to read more about this fascinating character, Sebastian was less entertaining this time around -- him trying to turn his life around is not nearly as fun as the last book's bitter, brilliant wallowing. Also, some characters (like the prison warden) just behaved in rather unbelievable ways.
The authors are masters at building tension though, and even the secondary characters are quite interesting.
Best to read these in order: Sebastian Bergman, The Man Who Watched Women.
