Synopses & Reviews
From "one of Sweden's best" (Los Angeles Times Magazine
) comes the third installment in the psychological thriller series featuring the savvy, sharp, and fearless investigative analyst Fredrika Bergman.
Fifteen years ago: A teenage girl is viciously assaulted as she picks flowers in a field one night in midsummer. The crime is never reported.
Present day: A man with no identification is killed in a hit-and-run. He is never reported missing. Across the city, a priest and his wife are found dead in an apparent suicide.
Fredrika Bergman is assigned to the case. What she and her colleagues discover is that a sinister evil, the roots of which date back decades, is the link behind these seemingly unrelated crimes. There's a reason why none of them were ever reported, and it has to do with a shocking and horrendous cover-up unlike anything Fredrika could have possibly imagined.
Skillfully crafted and highly suspenseful, Silenced is a gripping thriller in which the consequences of past tragedies continue to haunt the present, reaching further and deeper than anyone ever expected.
“Expect Ohlsson to join Nesbo on most readers' can't-miss lists.” Booklist (starred review)
"One of Sweden's best younger writers." Los Angeles Times Magazine
A sinister evil links three seemingly unrelated crimes. A teenage girl viciously assaulted in a field while picking daisies. The apparent double-suicide of a priest and his wife. An unidentified man violently killed in a hit-and-run. None of the crimes are reported.
