Summary: "A Norwegian tourist has been found murdered on the shore of Lake Superior--right where an Ojibwe man may have been killed more than one hundred years earlier. Four months later, the official investigation is supposedly over but still not resolved, and U.S. Forest Service officer Lance Hansen, drawn into the mystery by his grisly discovery of the body, is uncovering clues disturbingly close to home. His former father-in-law, Willy Dupree, may hold the key to the century-old murder of Swamper Caribou. And his own brother, Andy, might know more than he's telling--more than he should know--about the recent homicide. The relationship between the brothers takes a dangerous turn as their annual deer hunt becomes a deadly game. Steeped in the rich history of Lake Superior's rugged North Shore, this follow-up to the Riverton Prize-winning The Land of Dreams pursues two tales through a bleak and beautiful landscape haunted by the lives and dreams of its Scandinavian immigrants and Native Americans. Hansen finds himself equally haunted by the complex mysteries that continue to unravel around him."-- Provided by publisher.

Library Journal Review

When U.S. Forest Service officer and amateur local historian Lance Hansen discovers a dead Norwegian tourist at a campsite on the north shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota, he suspects his brother Andy is the culprit, but he has no evidence to arrest him. Four months later, the brothers set out for their annual deer hunting trip, which takes them near the site of the homicide. As they track deer, Andy's odd behavior makes Lance doubt his brother's alibi. Intertwined with the present-day story of the Hansens' hunting trip is a century-old tale of the disappearance of an Objibwe medicine man and his connection to a Norwegian immigrant, a distant relation to the Hansens. Verdict Sundstol's outstanding second entry in his acclaimed "Minnesota Trilogy" (after Land of the Dead) measures up to the first installment with its quick pace and succinct plot. Fans of Camilla Läckberg's crime novels and mysteries with a Minnesota setting will enjoy reading this chilling psychological thriller. Nunnally's translation is excellent and accessible to an American audience. The third installment in the trilogy, The Ravens, is forthcoming.-Russell Michalak, Goldey-Beacom Coll.
