Jussi Adler Ohlson’s Department Q books. Dept Q is solely set up to investigate cold cases
The earlier Jussi Adler Ohlsons books are better and it would be better to read them in order.
I’d recommend Red is the Colour too. A great read.
Ditto – @Maggie
I read an indie book(I believe) called The Naturalist and I thought it was good.
My latest Wakefield Series book, TAINTED has a thread of a cold case investigation. http://getbook.at/Tainted-DavidEvans
