Later abandoned and set on fire, the stolen car is located by the police. Augmented by police dogs, a search of the area where the car was left turns up the body of a young girl in a root cellar.
he tragic circumstances take an odd turn when it is determined that the dead pedestrian was a retired police officer. Is his death in some way connected to the dead girl or is it just a coincidence that these two crimes occurred on the same evening?
he following investigation takes Detective Inspector Irene Huss and her colleagues into a convoluted case that involves international sex trafficking and takes her to Tenerife in her quest for answers.
his novel appeared in Sweden in 2007 but didn't make it to North America until last year. As further novels in this series are published in English, the Scandinavian crime writer attracts more attention and her appreciative fan base continues to grow.
