Add to Wish List
A grisly torture-murder, a haunting northern Sweden
backdrop, and a dark drama of twisted sexuality collide
memorably in Åsa Larsson’s masterpiece of suspense—a tale
of menace, hope, longing, and darkness beyond
The dead woman was found on a frozen
lake, her body riddled with evidence of torture.
Instantly, Inspector Anna-Maria Mella knows she needs
help. Because the dead woman—found in workout clothes with
lacy underwear beneath them—was a key player in a mining
company whose tentacles reach across the globe. Anna-Maria
needs a lawyer to help explain some things—and she knows
one of the best.
Attorney Rebecka Martinsson is
desperate to get back to work, to feel alive again after a
case that almost destroyed her. Soon Rebecka is prying
into the affairs of the dead woman’s boss, the founder of
Kallis Mining, whose relationship with his star employee
was both complex and ominous. But what Rebecka and Anna-
Maria are about to uncover—a tangled drama of secrets,
perversion, and criminality—will lay bare a tale as
shocking as it is sad…about a man’s obsession, a woman’s
lonely death, and a killer’s cold, cold heart.
