The next dark mystery featuring the Linköping's best detective, Malin Fors, from the best-selling author Mons Kallentoft.
In the early hours of the morning, the naked body of a young man is discovered in a ditch next to Göta Kanal. The cause of death is mysterious; the body bears no visible traces of violence.
The man is soon identified as Peder Akerlund, a former Swedish politician, excluded from his party for racism but since reformed. Then 16-year-old Nadja Lundin is reported missing, possibly abducted, the same evening, and there are signs that suggest the two cases might be connected.
But what do the victims have in common? And why were they chosen? Gradually, Malin Fors realises that they are dealing with someone who is playing a game with them, who speaks through murders and who will not be silenced. What is he or she trying to say? Desperate to fine Nadja alive, the team race against the clock to find an answer before it's too late....

There is confusion over the real intent of the story. Is it an introspective analysis of the main character - dark , depressive and melancholy- or is it about a murderer and tracking down the person - or both ? It changes from one to another and the story becomes lost in quite bizarre introspection by the character. I persevered with book but it was disappointing in its ability to decide what it was really about.
