About the Author

Karin Alvtegen was born in Jonkoping, Sweden, in 1965 and had a varied career, including work in set design for film and stage, before she started to write. She won Sweden's most prestigious crime novel award, the Glass Key, with Missing, and received further acclaim for her next two novels, Betrayal and Shame. She is the great-neice of Astrid Lindgren (author of the Pippi Longstocking stories), and lives in Stockholm.

Reviews

* Reminiscent of Ruth Rendell at her best. Herald * Alvtegen is a name to watch. Guardian * A compelling tale...full of false leads and bloody deeds. Sunday Herald * Alvtegen's chilling novels are head and shoulders above the rest of the Scandi crew. Daily Mail * Alvtegen powerfully evokes Sibylla's sense of persecution and conveys what it means to live as an outsider, without ever compromising this compulsive thriller. Metro * A genuine hit ... a brilliant novel. -- Gefle Dagblad, Sweden * A very powerful novel. Skilfully, very intimately and realistically, Alvtegen describes an individual living outside the margins. -- Helsingborgs Dagblad * A gripping, multi-faceted thriller. It is not only about brutal murder, but also about something more profound - an individual's road to awareness about her own life and value ... Alvtegen is already amongst the top Swedish crime and thriller authors. Folkbladet Jonkoping
