Overview

Second-rate British journalist, Ewan Strachan, is invited to interview an old university friend, Mick Roslyn, who is now a leading film director in Sweden. On arrival in Malmö, Strachan is in for a terrible shock when he discovers the dead body of Roslyn's glamorous film star wife. The growing list of suspects includes a celebrity stalker, the director's business partner and the men behind the murder of Swedish premier Olof Palme in 1986.

Among the investigating team is the attractive Inspector Anita Sundström, who soon captivates Strachan. Then Strachan's world is turned upside down when Anita arrests him for the crime. However, she isn't sure whether he is the real murderer or has been set up. Anita battles to find the answers amid the antagonism and animosity of her colleagues. The exciting trail leads to death on Scandinavia's highest building before one final, unexpected twist in the first Anita Sundström Malmö mystery.

'A readable, entertaining debut novel; I hope that Anita Sundström will be assigned to more cases in future books.'
Euro Crime

'Crammed with adventure, this book has more twists and turns than a plate of spaghetti and is sure to grip any reader's emotions throughout.'
Lancashire Telegraph

'He has in any case put Malmö on the current international map and he is sure worth reading.'
Bo Lundin, Sydsvenskan (Sweden)

This book, plus the other two in the "Malmo" series, present an all "too-human" police inspector who uses her powers of detection as well as her instinct to solve crimes. And there's the rub. Ending is a shocker that pulls you into the next book. Believable characters, some likeable, some not at all. Great tension between them has the reader cheering for the good guys. Love the references to other fictional detectives woven into the plots. Great read.

Having been to Malmo, I found the text quite enjoyable to follow; brought back lots of memories from my visit to that part of Sweden. The characters were good too.
