Frozen Tracks by Ake Edwardson

Someone is attacking male college students in Gothenburg, Sweden. Detective Chief Inspector Erik Winter and his colleagues are on the case trying to find a connection between the victims. Then it appears that young children are being taken from their preschools for a short time without anyone noticing that they've gone missing. It isn't until the kids are home that they mention it to their parents. Now, DCI Winter has two weird sets of crimes to solve. Could they be in some way related? Although Frozen Tracks is very leisurely paced, I enjoyed the story and catching up with the detectives in this third entry in the series. An aside: the book is actually not the third book in the series, just the third to be published in English. Shame again on a publisher for doing this to a foreign author--the book refers to events than have happened in an untranslated book.
