The boy stopped. In a breath, his humming stopped. Something white glimmered in the corner of his eyes. Something that felt uncomfortably unnatural in the green foliage.
The summer has just begun in Lund, an old University town in the south of Sweden. The body of a young girl is found in the city park. She has been viciously attacked but is still alive.
The investigation isn’t made easy when the police seek for clues to the perpetrator in the old university town’s parks, winding streets and watering holes. The people they find on their search for the truth belong to the dark side of society. But as the rest they also seek love and closeness.
To superintendent and team leader Sara Vallén, and inspector Rita Anker and their colleagues the hunt for the perpetrator becomes an odyssey in human decay.
A both exciting and emotional story.
