Publisher's Summary

A woman's body is found on a frozen lake, bearing the marks of grisly torture. Inspector Anna-Maria Mella knows she needs help with the case - the woman was a key player in a mining company whose tentacles reach across the globe. Lawyer Rebecka Martinsson is desperate to get back to work, to feel alive again after a case that almost destroyed her both physically and emotionally.
Soon she is delving into the affairs of the victim's boss, the founder of Kallis Mining, whose relationship with the dead woman was complex and obsessive. Martinsson and Mella are about to uncover a dark and tangled drama of family secrets, twisted sexuality, and corruption on a massive scale. Set against a haunting, icy backdrop and packed with suspense, The Black Path is a menacing and evocative psychological crime novel.

Critic Reviews

"As dark in theme as the wintry landscapes are bleak, but Anna-Maria Mella [...] provides sufficient light and warmth to guide even the most Scandi-sceptic reader through to the end" (The Sunday Independent)
"A superior example of Scandinavian noir" (Sunday Telegraph)

Poorly worked patchwork

Too many characters -- some with the potential to be really interesting -- but the whole is a tedious mess.

Confused

Thought it would be good. It wasn't. Apparently that's not long enough for a review, so had to write this too.
