Abstract:

"The Department of Sensitive Crimes, renowned for taking on the most obscure and irrelevant cases, is always prepared to dive into an investigation, no matter how complex. So when the girlfriend of an infamous author insists her scandalous beau is being blackmailed, Ulf Varg, the department's head detective, is determined to help. It is rather difficult to discover, however, what skeletons might be hiding in the closet of a man whose bad behavior is his greatest calling card. The case requires Ulf's total concentration, but he finds himself distracted by his ongoing attraction to his coworker Anna, whose marriage is on rocky footing. When Ulf is also tasked with looking into a group of dealers exporting wolves that seem more Canis familiaris than Canis lupus, it will requires all of his team's investigative instincts and dogged persistence to put these matters to bed." -- back cover.
