SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2014 GLASS KEY AWARD 2013 SWEDISH CRIME ACADEMY 'BEST CRIME NOVEL' In the final days of summer, a young woman is shot dead in her apartment. Three floors above, the blue lights of the police cars awaken disgraced ex-officer Leo Junker. Though suspended from the force, he can’t stay away for long. Bluffing his way onto the crime scene, he examines the dead woman and sees that she is clasping a cheap necklace — a necklace he instantly recognises. As Leo sets out on a rogue investigation to catch the killer, a series of frightening connections emerge, linking the murder to his own troubled youth in Salem — a suburb of Stockholm where social and racial tensions run high — and forcing him to confront a long ago incident that changed his life forever. Now, in backstreets, shadowed alleyways, and decaying suburbs ruled by Stockholm’s criminal underground, the search for the young woman’s killer — and the truth about Leo’s past — begins. PRAISE FOR CHRISTOFFER CARLSSON ‘[C]leverly plotted and the tension builds expertly.’ The Herald Sun ‘The author's youthful mugshot belies his seasoned skill, and there are lashings of the kind of social critique we expect from this territory.’ The Independent

Leo Junker is back in the snake pit - the nickname for the homicide unit - after a long leave of absence due to his entanglement in a murder case where he'd been personally targeted by the perpetrator. He is still abusing prescription drugs and battling his inner demons, but he does his best to appear fit for duty. In early winter, a sociologist named Thomas Heber is found murdered in an alley in the centre of Stockholm. The only traces the police have to work with are Heber's cryptic research notes, which indicate that someone else's life is also under threat. But who? Leo is put on the Heber case, together with Gabriel Birck, his former antagonist in the force. That is hard enough, but when the case is abruptly taken from them and reassigned to the Swedish Security Service, Leo realises this is no ordinary street mugging. As the lens widens, Leo becomes immersed in a clash between racists and anti-racists who are waging a war on the streets and on the public stage - and in the shadows. The Falling Detectiveis a troubling story of friendship across moral and political boundaries, where the lines between ally and enemy are blurred, and the past becomes interwoven with the present in a chilling way.

The Salem witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. More than 200 people were accused, 19 of whom were found guilty and executed by hanging (14 women and 5 men). One other man, Giles Corey, was crushed to death for refusing to plead, and at least five people died in jail. It was the deadliest witch hunt in the history of colonial North America. This collection contains works that concern this infamous witch hunt and trials: The Wonders of the Invisible World by Cotton Mather and Increase Mather Salem Witchcraft by Charles Wentworth Upham Salem Witchcraft and Cotton Mather by Charles Wentworth Upham A Short History of the Salem Village Witchcraft Trials by M.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, course: Proseminar: Imagining America: 17th Century American Literature, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The Salem Witchcraft Trials of 1692 represent a cruel part of New England history. Twenty people were killed after they were accused of being witches or wizards. Dozens were imprisoned. One of the key figures today around the trials is Cotton Mather. Although he was not directly involved in accusing or judging the people, he wrote a book about the trials, called The Wonders of the Invisible World. In this book, he listed the different indicators about how to discover someone practicing witchcraft. This essay will concern Cotton Mather's arguments concerning witchcraft, their origin, and his theories about their treatment. The trials in Salem will play an essential part, because the practices during the trials show how witchcraft was proved then, regardless of the guilt of the accused. It was impossible for an accused person to escape punishment in Salem and Mather's and his colleagues arguments served as additional justification for killing innocent people in Salem.

Tormented girls writhing in agony, stern judges meting out harsh verdicts, nineteen bodies swinging on Gallows Hill. The stark immediacy of what happened in 1692 has obscured the complex web of human passion which climaxed in the Salem witch trials From rich and varied sources—many neglected and unknown—Paul Boyer and Stephen Nissenbaum give us a picture of the people and events more intricate and more fascinating than any other in the massive literature. It is a story of powerful and deeply divided families and of a community determined to establish an independent identity—beset by restraints and opposition from without and factional conflicts from within—and a minister whose obsessions helped to bring this volatile mix to the flash point. Not simply a dramatic and isolated event, the Salem outbreak has wider implications for our understanding of developments central to the American experience: the disintegration of Puritanism, the pressures of land and population in New England towns, the problems besetting farmer and householder, the shifting role of the church, and the powerful impact of commercial capitalism.

The second instalment in the internationally bestselling Leo Junker series. Leo Junker is back in the snake pit — aka the homicide unit — after a murder case where he was the intended victim. Still abusing prescription drugs and battling his inner demons, he’s doing his best to appear fit for duty. Then a sociologist named Thomas Heber is found murdered. The only clues the police have to work with are Heber’s cryptic research notes, which indicate that someone else’s life is also under threat. But who? Leo is put on the Heber case with his former nemesis Gabriel Birck, but when the case is abruptly reassigned to the Swedish Security Service, he realises this is no ordinary street mugging. Soon he finds himself entangled in a clash between a racist gang and their rivals, and enters a war that’s being waged on the streets, in the public eye, and in the shadows. PRAISE FOR CHRISTOFFER CARLSSON ‘This is an incredibly strong crime novel, I would venture to say that among contemporary crime fiction it is in the absolute top! … This is not a rush job, rather it is solid work crafted by a young man who impresses with his maturity and his analysis of the dark side of Sweden. If you like crime literature, don't miss these novels for the world!’ LitteraturMagazinet ‘This story hits at the very core of our contemporary society. What I like about this author is that he doesn’t just focus on the suspense of the plot, but is a master at depicting how class and upbringing shapes us into who we are.’ Aftonbladet

An article in The North American Review, for April, 1869, is mostly devoted to a notice of the work published by me, in 1867, entitled Salem Witchcraft, with an account of Salem Village, and a history of opinions on witchcraft and kindred subjects. If the article had contained criticisms, in the usual style, merely affecting the character of that work, in a literary point of view, no other duty would have devolved upon me, than carefully to consider and respectfully heed its suggestions. But it raises questions of an historical nature that seem to demand a response, either acknowledging the correctness of its statements or vindicating my own. The character of the Periodical in which it appears; the manner in which it was heralded by rumor, long before its publication; its circulation, since, in a separate pamphlet form; and the extent to which, in certain quarters, its assumptions have been endorsed, make a reply imperative. The subject to which it relates is of acknowledged interest and importance. The Witchcraft Delusion of 1692 has justly arrested a wider notice, and probably always will, than any other occurrence in the early colonial history of this country. It presents phenomena in the realm of our spiritual nature, belonging to that higher department of physiology, known as Psychology, of the greatest moment; and illustrates the operations of the imagination upon the passions and faculties in immediate connection with it, and the perils to which the soul and society are thereby exposed, in a manner more striking, startling and instructive than is elsewhere to be found. For all reasons, truth and justice require of those who venture to explore and portray it, the utmost efforts to elucidate its passages and delineate correctly its actors. With these views I hail with satisfaction the criticisms that may be offered upon my book, without regard to their personal character or bearing, as continuing and heightening the interest felt in the subject; and avail myself of the opportunity, tendered to me without solicitation and in a most liberal spirit, by the proprietor of this Magazine, to meet the obligations which historical truth and justice impose.

Charles Levin, Detective Leo Junker’s mentor — and the same man who betrayed Leo — is dead. Now Leo must find out why. He must follow the thread of the dead man’s own tragedies, which will lead inexorably to the betrayal of Charles Levin’s soul — and the soul of his nation. Inspired by a string of scandals and murders that rocked Sweden in the 1980s, particularly the killing of journalist Cats Falck, Christoffer Carlsson tells his own chilling version of what happened in those dark days. PRAISE FOR CHRISTOFFER CARLSSON ‘It’s skillfully accomplished, […] Carlsson is, also this year, one of the most original and interesting Swedish authors writing in the genre.’ Sydsvenskan ‘A multi-layered book with a complex intrigue, but above all a beautiful, well-written and plaintive book about Sweden, about betrayal, shortcomings and atonement.’ Dagens Nyheter

Detective Leo Junker thought he’d crossed his last line. But he’s never learned to say no. So when an escaped criminal he knows all too well hands him a photo of a murdered prostitute, he reopens the cold case as a favour. Everyone’s busy and everyone’s got better things to do, but is there a darker reason that Angelica Reyes’ death has languished unsolved for five years? As Leo’s investigation pushes further into the past — Sweden’s, Angelica’s, his own — he’ll come face to face with the corruption at the heart of things. Yet the reckoning may come too late — not only for Angelica Reyes, but for everyone.
