I was sad to see Helene Tursten's Detective Inspector Irene Huss mystery series come to an end. Well, it's always sad when a favorite series ends, but I really can't fault writers for running out of ideas to keep a series fresh or just wanting to try something new.
When I learned that Tursten had the first book in a new series due to be released at the end of February, I did a little happy dance. I'm really looking forward to beginning a new journey with this author, and when I tell you a bit about the new book, you might be, too!

But when Embla arrives at her uncle’s cabin in rural Dalsland, she sees an unfamiliar face has joined the group: Peter, enigmatic, attractive, and newly divorced. And she isn’t the only one to notice. One longtime member of the hunt doesn’t welcome the presence of an outsider and is quick to point out that with Peter, the group’s number reaches thirteen, a bad omen for the week. Sure enough, a string of unsettling incidents follows, culminating in the disappearance of two hunters. Embla takes charge of the search, and they soon find one of the missing men floating facedown in the nearby lake. With the help of local reinforcements, Embla delves into the dark pasts of her fellow hunters in search of a killer."
I think we could almost be forgiven for thinking that Tursten has created in Embla Nyström a younger version of Irene Huss. There are similarities, but I don't remember Huss being plagued with nightmares, and Nyström definitely sounds like an outdoors person, doesn't she?
Any fellow Huss fans out there who are looking forward to this book, too? Or... are you new to Helene Tursten's work and think this book sounds like something you want to read? Inquiring minds would love to know!
