Publisher's Summary

It's a beautiful day for a regatta - until one of Sandhamn Island's most prestigious residents is killed aboard his sailing yacht.

Oscar Juliander was a rich lawyer and deputy chairman of the prestigious Royal Swedish Yacht Club. While at first his death seems like a tragic accident, there is evidence of foul play. Police detective Thomas Andreasson teams up with local lawyer Nora Linde to investigate. As they work to uncover clues, they face resistance from an elite world where nothing but appearance matters.

When the rich and powerful inhabitants of Sweden's idyllic island getaway come under scrutiny, Thomas and Nora must work closely and secretively to seek justice.

Loved it!

Loved it! The book ended, sort of, with a cliff hanger. Can't wait for book number 3 being released in May 2017.

Excellent modern detective mystery

Closed Circles is the second novel in the Sandhamn Murders series by Swedish author Viveca Sten. It is an excellent suspense mystery set on the sparsely populated Sandhamn island chain a few miles east of Stockholm. Author Sten is a very talented novelist who writes excellent crime/police novels. The protagonists of this series are a male detective (Thomas) and female lawyer friend (Nora) who works for a bank. Nora's husband and their 10 and 6 year old sons are also significant characters.

Follow the money

In short this book is about an island community where people are money hungry. I enjoyed the ins and outs of the characters/story. I personally thought the ending was a let down. I know it was probably written that way to segue into the next book. Nonetheless it was disappointing.
