Description

Family ties can bind dangerously tight Viktor Algard was in love. Reckless in the grip of passion, he left his wife and grown-up children to be with his new lover. His last act was a celebratory drink at a glamorous party . . . Inspector Anders Knutas must find out who on the island of Gotland hated Algard enough to poison him. At first Algard's spurned wife seems like the obvious suspect. But a second attack confirms his suspicion that there's a more complex motive behind the murder. If Knutas is to catch the killer, he must discover the truth that lies hidden at the heart of a broken family - and face some secrets within his own.show more

Review quote

"Writers such as Henning Mankell may outsell Jungstedt in the UK, but - if there is any justice - she will not remain caviar to the general" * Barry Forshaw * "There is an icy dispassionate grip to Jungstedt's writing that recalls Henning Mankell" * Metro * "She is in total control of plot and pace, conveys chilling atmosphere and her characters are well above average for believability" * The Times * "Jungstedt delivers excellent clammy atmosphere and a constant premonition of weird deaths to come. She's becoming one of Scandinavia's best crime writers, no mean compliment in a crowded field" * The Times *show more
