The Fire Dance

The Fire Dance (Detective Inspector Huss) - Helene Tursten

I love when the title of a novel is actually indicative of what one will find in the book, so many of them are not. This case takes Irene Huss back fifteen years to one of her first cases, a case that involved a fire. Go figure. In the present, the person they questioned as a possible suspect back than is now found dead.


Although I felt Irene was not quite as sharp as in her previous novels, this one is still very entertaining. I loved all the information on dance and learned a new term, which is also a type of dance called capoeira. There are a few secondary plots, including one involving a Hell's Angel that had once put Irene in the hospital. Her personal ;life takes a scary turn as well. Good, solid and entertaining read.
