    Rebecka Martinsson is heading home to Kiruna, the town she'd left in disgrace years before. A Stockholm attorney, Rebecka has a good reason to return: her friend, Sanna, whose brother has been horrifically murdered in the revivalist church his charisma helped create. Beautiful and fragile, Sanna needs someone like Rebecka to remove the shadow of guilt that is engulfing her, to forestall an ambitious prosecutor and a dogged policewoman.

    I enjoyed Gabrielle Glaister narration much more

    Asa Larsson, RM books are entertaining ploys that I look forward to listening to. I found Ms Huber had a bored tone in her narration. It was a distra..Show More »

    It's midsummer in Sweden, when the light lingers through dawn as winter finally ends. In this magical time, a brutal killer strikes, and the murder of a female priest sends shock waves through the community. Though she has no cause to get involved, attorney Rebecka Martinsson cannot help herself. And the further she is drawn into a mystery that will soon claim another victim, the more the dead woman's world consumes her - a world of hurt and healing, sin and sexuality, and above all, of lethal sacrifice.

    Could not stop listening

    This book ranks up there with Stig Larsson, Henning Mankill and Per Wahloo. I felt like I was experiencing what life might be like in Ms Larsson's vil..Show More »

    A woman's body is found on a frozen lake, bearing the marks of grisly torture. Inspector Anna-Maria Mella knows she needs help with the case - the woman was a key player in a mining company whose tentacles reach across the globe. Lawyer Rebecka Martinsson is desperate to get back to work, to feel alive again after a case that almost destroyed her both physically and emotionally.

    Poorly worked patchwork

    Too many characters -- some with the potential to be really interesting -- but the whole is a tedious mess.
