About this book

Book Summary

Police Officer Nina Hoffman finds her fellow officer David Lindholm naked on his bed with bullets through his head and stomach. Next to the body is his wife, Julia. The traumatized Julia rambles on about a woman entering the house, killing David and running off with her son, but all the evidence seems to point in Julia's direction. Annika Bengtzon covers the case and is drawn in headfirst when she sees that Julia is about to be falsely charged. Working against the clock, Annika must clear Julia's name and find her missing son.

Reviews

Media Reviews

"Fast-paced and packing plenty of thrills... recommend[ed for] readers who enjoy complicated Nordic thrillers with plenty of backstory, like those by Stieg Larsson and Camilla Lackberg." - Booklist

"[The] plot is smart and suspenseful... and Marklund knows her journalistic turf: Her rendering of the methods, internal politics and economics of newspapers is spot on." - Kirkus

"Starred Review. Marklund has created a complex page-turner, complete with gritty realism, a flawed but likable protagonist, and nonstop suspense." - Publishers Weekly

"Very suspenseful." - The Cleveland Plain Dealer
