Publisher's Summary

From an award-winning author comes this disturbing, entrancing, beautifully crafted mystery set in northern Sweden. It's midsummer, when the light lingers through dawn as the long winter finally ends. In this magical time, a brutal killer strikes, and the murder of a female priest sends shock waves through the community. Though she has no cause to get involved, attorney Rebecka Martinsson cannot help herself. And the further she is drawn into a mystery that will soon claim another victim, the more the dead woman's world consumes her - a world of hurt and healing, sin and sexuality, and above all, of lethal sacrifice.
Translated by Marlaine Delargy.

Could not stop listening

This book ranks up there with Stig Larsson, Henning Mankill and Per Wahloo. I felt like I was experiencing what life might be like in Ms Larsson's village in northern Sweden. I hope Audible will offer Ms. Larsson's second book soon.

- Susan "I enjoy Scandinavian mystery and crime authors like Asa Larsson, Helene Tursten, Jo Nesbo, Karin Fossum and Amaaldur Indridason just to name a few."

chick book

Should have been good but wasn't. Was not horrible, but not great. All the discriptive energy spent on things that had nothing to do with the murder.
