When a leading MalmO entrepreneur turns up bound and gagged in a city-centre cemetery, the SkAne County Police have no obvious clues as to who is behind the kidnapping. More complications arise when a second leading business figure is snatched and Inspector Anita SundstrOm and her colleagues are under pressure not only to find the victim, but also catch the gang.
The team is then further stretched with the murder of a malicious investigative journalist who has ruined the lives of many prominent Swedes. Unlike the kidnapping case, there is no shortage of suspects. Both investigations are far from straightforward, and Anita's professional life is about to become more turbulent with her nemesis, Alice Zetterberg, waiting in the wings.
Warring companies . . . fallen celebrities . . . and an adversary from a past case reappears on the scene as Anita SundstrOm tries to find the truth in the sixth full-length MalmO Mystery.
