Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The remote resort town of Fjällbacka has seen more than its share of tragedies, but a little girl found in a fishermans 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 its 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 couldnt possibly predict how this case will reach into Fjällbackas darkest heart, spanning generations and ripping aside its idyllic façade, perhaps forever.

Review:

"The extreme darkness of the human spirit — a quality that marks Läckberg's novel and the work of many other Swedish crime writers — is expertly portrayed in this audio edition by narrator David Thorn, who previously read earlier installments in the author's Patrik Hedstrom series. Although it may take listeners a few moments to become accustomed to Thorn's British accent, this discrepancy quickly becomes a nonissue given the narrator's deliberate pace, which serves to underscore the bleakness of both the external and the internal terrain. This time around, Hedstrom is particularly invested in solving the crime; as a new father, he's affected by the murder of an eight-year-old girl even more strongly than usual. And Thorn is especially effective in portraying the detective's exhaustion from tending to his infant daughter, which only adds to the strain of working the grisly murder case. A Pegasus hardcover."
