From #1 internationally bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg comes a new psychological thriller-irresistible for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo. Mats Sverin was Fjallbacka's financial director on a regeneration project worth millions. When he's found dead, detective Patrik Hedstrom must find answers. It seems Mats was a man who everybody liked yet nobody really knew-a man with something to hide. Is it just a coincidence that his high school sweetheart, Nathalie, has returned to the area? Does she know who Mats really was? Nathalie has her own secret. Something has forced her and her five-year-old son to flee to their remote family home on the Ghost Isle, where she'll shield her son from the evils of the world. But as the murder investigation draws a blank, the police have to dig deeper-and before long, everyone's lives will be dragged into the light.

Professional reviews

"Simon Vance is in his element voicing this complicated Swedish police drama, which includes a portrait of a whole interconnected society familiar to readers of Lackberg's very popular earlier audiobooks. Lackberg's elaborate multilayered plot shifts scenes suddenly and often. Vance doesn't always make these jump cuts clear, and while his distinctions between male and female, young and old, are very good and very entertaining, it's less easy to tell apart individuals within these categories (this old man from that one.) This only matters because there are so many characters, and it doesn't matter much. It's a story and a performance that very much rewards attention; you care about these people and what is happening to them and the wrap-up is satisfying and not too tidy.
