Detective Leo Junker thought he'd crossed his last line. But he's never learned to say no.
So when an escaped criminal he knows all too well hands him a photo of a murdered prostitute, he reopens the cold case as a favour. Everyone's busy and everyone's got better things to do, but is there a darker reason that Angelica Reyes' death has languished unsolved for five years? As Leo's investigation pushes further into the past - Sweden's, Angelica's, his own - he'll come face to face with the corruption at the heart of things.
Yet the reckoning may come too late - not only for Angelica Reyes, but for everyone.
