The Killer's Art


A cold Sunday morning, a man is found murdered and hanged in one of the entrances of the old wall that surrounds Visby, the capital of Gotland. The victim is none other than art gallery owner Egon Wallin, who the evening before held a successful opening for a Lithuanian artist. Soon after starting his investigation, Inspector Anders Knutas soon realizes that Egon Wallin was on the verge of leaving Gotland and his wife of 20 years behind – but for what? When the famous painting “The Dying Dandy” by Nils Dardel is stolen in Stockholm, disturbing links to the murder of Egon Wallin are slowly surfacing, taking us right into the exquisite art world and into the homosexual underworld of prostitution and drugs. This is the fourth installment in the Anders Knutas series.
