Oprah.com raved that Asa Larsson's Rebecka Martinsson is "a crime fighter who has all the needed gut insticts," and listed the series as "Mysteries Every Thinking Woman Should Read".
In Until Thy Wrath Be Past, the body of a young woman surfaces in the River Torne, in the far north of Sweden. Meanwhile, Rebecka Martinsson is working as a prosecutor in nearby Kiruna. Her sleep has been disturbed by haunting visions of a shadowy, accusing figure. Could the body be connected to the ghostly young woman in her dreams?
Joining forces once again with Police Inspector Anna-Maria Mella, Rebecka is drawn into a murder and missing-person investigation that becomes entangled with old rumors of a German supply plane that mysteriously disappeared in 1943. Shame and secrecy shroud the locals' memories of the war, with Sweden's early collaboration with the Nazis still a raw wound. And on the windswept shore of a frozen lake lurks a faceless killer determined to keep the past buried forever beneath half a century's silent ice and snow.
With its psychologically complex twists and turns, this harrowing thriller captivates from the very first minutes.
"Larsson's laid back style makes her unflinching probing of the icy depths of the human heart all the more chilling." (Jake Kerridge, Telegraph)
"Asa Larsson's book... stands firmly on the three most important tenets: style, human understanding, and plot." (Svenska Dagbladet, Sweden)
"Language that is by turn simple and clear, and by turn poetically brilliant." (Norrlandska Socialdemokraten, Sweden)
