Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the freezing winter, a journalist is murdered in the northern Swedish town of Lulea. Crime reporter Annika Bengtzon suspects that the killing is linked to an attack against an air base in the late 60. Against the explicit orders of her boss, Annika continues her investigation of the death, which is soon followed by a series of shocking murders.

Annika quickly finds herself drawn into a spiral of terrorism and violence centered around a small communist group called The Beasts. Meanwhile, her marriage starts to slide, and in the end, she is not only determined to find out the truth, but also forced to question her own husband's honesty.

I tried.

I enjoy Henning Mankell and Stieg Larson was also good. I was excited to hear there was another fabulous Swedish crime writer. Unlike the other reviewer I cannot recommend this book - at least in this format. The story takes some time to gel and the narrator seems shrill to me. I tried and finally gave up at the end of Part I., perhaps I'll try again, but I was really not enjoying this. At least listen to the trial audio before you spend any money.

will there be more translations to english?

I enjoyed this book very much. So disappointed more of this author's novels are not in English. Enthusiastic (maybe at times a bit too enthusiastic) narrator. Annika Bengtzon, reporter, wife, mother and friend, is the protagonist, and is a believable and well thought out character. The story is a bit choppy at times, this could be the translation, but its a book I'll listen to again.

Only 1 of the 8 novels is in English. Hope there will be more. Its always a bit joyful to find an new Audible recommendation whose backlist is available. But that's not the case here. The books are there, but not available. why is that? sorry to be so peevish about this.
