Stockholm, Sweden. Policewoman Rebecka Born has been given a coveted opportunity to carve out a career as a special forces officer within the Special Crimes Unit, an elite force fighting terrorism and organized crime. Her first case: Investigating the mysterious murders of two women found mutilated and severely burned by the Klarälven river.
Once in picturesque and isolated Värmland county, Rebecka is faced with a new type of threat – a threat that seemingly can’t be met with ordinary police methods. What has happened to the unidentified victims? Did they become targets of the racist hatred directed at the refugees hosted in a former mansion? A mansion with a connection to Rebecka that’s too close for comfort…
“A punch in the heart… A thriller so brutal that it – at first – beggars belief that the story could be based on reality.”
