Publisher's Summary

A man is pushed from a cliff; a woman is missing after a bike ride; an elderly man is washed ashore.

The friends are closer than most - too close, some might say. Every year they leave their cosy suburban neighbourhood to go on holiday together to a remote Swedish island. But this year, their holiday won't go as expected. A terrible series of tragedies will unfold, seemingly random, all somehow connected.

Detective Superintendent Anders Knutas will have to look into the friends' tangled pasts to find the truth. What malevolent force has followed them to the island? Or was it amongst them all along? Even the closest friends don’t share everything....

My favourite Swedish crime writer

I read the first three books in this series several years ago and absolutely loved them. Since being unable to read I have been very disappointed that the rest of this series has been so badly narrated on Audible that I have been unable to listen to them. However, finally this series has a decent narrator and I hope Leighton Pugh continues to narrate future Mari Jungstedt books. I love the setting, the atmosphere, the characterisation and the main characters in Jungstedt's novels and this does not disappoint. Highly recommended.
