'Carin Gerhardsen writes so vividly, like she is painting with words, gripping your heart and soul' Peter James. Discover one of the best Scandinavian crime series since Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole.
It's the call every officer dreads.
Stockholm Criminal Investigator Conny Sjoeberg finds a mother and her two young children lying peacefully in bed, their throats coldly and efficiently cut and no signs of a struggle.
As Conny and his team get to work they draw a blank on both motive and suspect for these cruel, senseless murders. The only lead they have is a mysterious benefactor of the family - who eludes their every search.
Distracted and hampered by the mysterious disappearance of one of their officers, Conny's squad struggles on - until an astonishing discovery turns the case upside down and threatens to tear his team apart . . .
