The world is reeling from the near-apocalypse of the Dystopian Takeover that was only just averted by a motley crew of teenagers, including Violet Strokes.

We may reminisce about a first baby doll at Christmas or a Radio Flyer wagon long awaited. Recalling precious moments of youth, and the love held within them, is food for our souls. Such precious moments often escape us. Before Summer s End recalls a time and place in history that has escaped many of us. It was a time when being young meant carefree summers, running in the rain, and discovering the unknown. Within this story lie the innocence of youth, the true importance of family, and the way that little things in life hold true meaning. Excitement fills the air while we wander through a summer day near the end of harvest time. We romp in the yard, chasing away the ducks as we search for gold. We watch a stray cat being squirted with milk and roll over in laughter until our bellies hurt. In the front yard, a rope swing patiently waits to take our breath away as it glides through the breeze. We remember the time when being young was easy and carefree. Before Summer s End reminds us of days past, when the pace of life was slower and one could savor its joy, feel its purity, and hold tightly to its truth. It was a time when children stood on a strong foundation that was built out of everyday, ordinary moments.

A young man falls to his death from a window in a student dorm in Stockholm, his loose shoe striking and killing the little dog being taken for his evening walk by an old man. It seems to be a mundane suicide—at least that’s what the police choose to think. But the young man is American, not Swedish, and there are a couple of odd things about his room when they search it. . . . From these tiny beginnings, Leif GW Persson slowly begins to unravel a puzzle that gets larger and larger as it becomes more and more complex, until it sweeps us into a web of international espionage, backroom politics, greed, sheer incompetence, and the shoddy work of Sweden’s intelligence force that leads to the murder of the prime minister. The first novel in a dark and dazzling trilogy that has become the defining fictional account of the unsolved 1986 assassination of Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme—an event that triggered the biggest criminal investigation in recorded history—Between Summer’s Longing and Winter’s End is a riveting insider’s combination of black satire, thriller, psychological drama, and police procedural by a writer universally acknowledged as Sweden’s leading criminologist.
