Friday Find: Frozen Moment by Camilla Ceder

Publisher's Blurb

One cold morning, in the wind-lashed Swedish countryside, a man's body is found in an isolated garage. The victim has been shot in the head, and run over repeatedly by a car. Inspector Christian Tell, a world-weary detective with a chequered past, is called to the scene. But there are few clues to go by, and no one seems to be telling the truth. Then, a second brutal murder. The method is the same, but this victim has no apparent connection with the first. Tell's team is baffled. Seja, a reporter and witness, thinks a long-unsolved mystery may hold the key to the killings. Tell is drawn to Seja, but her prescence at the crime scene doesn't add up, and a relationship could jeopardise everything. For the inquiry to succeed, the community must yield the dark secrets of its past.

Oh wow, this looks intense! I like the detective with a deep past...it reminds me of Tana French's characters. Enjoy!

I agree with the first poster - sounds intense. Here are my "Finds" this week - http://is.gd/7htQBh

Oh, hooked already just reading the summary and I like the character's name Christian Tell. There must be a unique trait that the author bestowed him such a name.
