Publisher's Summary

It is Autumn in Linköping and the heavens have opened, but not even these biblical rains can wash away the blood of crimes, past and present. Then the brutally-stabbed body of self-made Internet billionaire Jerry Petersson is discovered floating face down in the moat surrounding his home, the imposing Skogså Castle.
Malin Fors, the brilliant but flawed star of the Linköping police force, is already struggling to keep her life together following the recent murder attempt on her teenage daughter, Tove. Now, as the Petersson case forces Malin to delve deep into Linköping's history and her own family's past, the secrets she uncovers threaten to drown her, too.…


What the Critics Say

"Kallentoft's books have been called beautiful, exquisite and original. I can see why." (Literary Review)
"One of the best-realised female heroines I've read by a male writer." (Guardian)
"It is Kallentoft's characterisation and distinctive, often poetic style which make his crime-writing more memorable than most.... It is compelling reading. The atmosphere of oppressive heat creates the sense of a hell on earth, where evil thrives. It is a powerful and disturbing vision." (Canberra Times)

I've read the other books in this series and quite enjoyed them. The focus of the writer is normally as much on the emotions of the main character, Malin Fors, as on the crime at hand. In this book, however, the writer goes way too far in one direction. The book is mainly about Malin Fors' descent into alcoholism whilst giving up on every other aspect of her life. And boy, does the character wallow and moan! I was starting to loathe the main character within about 15 minutes and it didn't improve. I was hanging out for the crime novel elements but they were few and far between. The narrator does a game job but you can't turn a sow's ear into a silk purse. The other books are far better.
