The fourth novel in the internationally bestselling Malin Fors series, a Swedish crime-writing phenomenon, perfect for fans of the television series The Killing and The Bridge.
Mons Kallentoft grew up in a working-class household in the provincial town of Linkoping, Sweden, where the Malin Fors series is set. Before becoming a writer, he worked in journalism and is also a keen food critic. His first novel, Pesetas, was awarded the Swedish equivalent of the Whitbread Award. He has been married to Karolina for over 20 years, and they live in Stockholm with their daughter and son. His novels are translated into English by Neil Smith.

'Meditative. Dark. Really, really cold . . . This is a worthy successor to Larsson's Millennium trilogy . . . This first installment in Kallentoft's crime series is a splendid representative of the Swedish crime novel, in all its elegance and eeriness.' * Booklist Starred Review * It is Kallentoft's characterisation and distinctive, often poetic style which make his crime-writing more memorable than most . . . It is compelling reading. The atmosphere of oppressive heat creates the sense of a hell on earth, where evil thrives. It is a powerful and disturbing vision. * Canberra Times * The strengths of this complex and excellent novel include realistic dialogue, thorough characterisation and concern for social issues * New Zealand Listener * The highest suspense * Camilla Lackberg, international bestselling author of The Stonecutter * One of the best-realised female heroines I've read by a male writer * Guardian * Don't bother with Stieg Larsson, Kallentoft is better * Magnus Utvik, Sweden's leading critic * He has a completely unique style, an exquisite narrative that you drink in with pleasure . . . I'm convinced: a crime novel doesn't get much more beautiful than this * Kristian Stadsbladet * Kallentoft's books have been called beautiful, exquisite and original. I can see why. * Literary Review * Praise for Mons Kallentoft's MALIN FORS series * . . . *
