|In the third novel from Sweden''s bestselling female writer, yet more trouble for the small town of Fjallbacka: the mysterious drowning of a little girl threatens to tear the town apart.|
From the Publisher:
The remote resort town of Fjällbacka has seen more than its share of tragedies, but a little girl found in a fisherman's net may be the worst yet?especially when the postmortem reveals that this was a methodical murder, not an accidental drowning.
Local detective Patrik Hedstrom has just become a father, and it's his grim task to discover who could have killed a child both he and his partner Erica knew well. He realizes that the solution lies with finding a motive for this terrible crime. Although Hedstrom is no stranger to the criminal mind, he couldn't possibly predict how this case will reach into Fjällbacka's darkest heart, spanning generations and ripping aside its idyllic façade, perhaps forever.
"[The author] strips conventional veneers from her achingly complex characters. . . . Läckberg gradually tightens the disparate narrative strands noose-like around her numerous remorselessly dissected characters, her signature reversal revealing shocking and poignant truths about the residents of Fjällbacka, where she herself was born." (starred review) 02/27/2012 "A perfectly plotted and paced mystery bolstered by strong, realistic characters makes this a must-read for all followers of Scandinavian crime fiction." - Jessica Moyer 03/01/2012
