In the new thriller by Camilla Läckberg, a string of suspicious deaths points to a potential serial killer who has turned his eye toward Fjallbacka and her dark forests, where two children vanished decades before.A local woman is killed in a tragic car crash, but it isn’t a clear-cut drunk driving case. The victim’s blood contains high alcohol levels, but she rarely drank a drop. Meanwhile, a reality TV show begins shooting in the town, and as cameras shadow the stars’ every move, tempers start to flare. When a drunken party ends with an unpopular contestant’s murder, all eyes turn to the cast and crew could there be a murderer among them? The ratings spike as the country tunes in to a real life murder mystery. Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden? Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his toughest investigation yet.

I have stated that I thought that her books were too almost Americanized th...
Best mystery of them all so far.
Pełnej kulturki w Szwecji ciąg dalszy: policjanci zdejmują buty w domach ludzi, których przychodzą zawiadomić o śmierci najbliższych oraz pełne akcji dochodzenie z bułeczkami cynamonowymi i kawą w tle. Ale i tak jest fajnie :)
