IN 1995, 16-YEAR-OLD Gabriella “Gabby” Sorani disappears without a trace in Kalmar. Twenty-five years later, the case remains unsolved.

IN STOCKHOLM, TV producer Sanna Lundgren is in crisis after a participant in the reality show she is working on commits suicide during a live broadcast.

THE ONLY WAY for Sanna to salvage her career is to return to her hometown and make a documentary about the Gabby case. However, this also means confronting demons from her past, as she and Gabby attended the same school.

SIMULTANEOUSLY, POLICE INSPECTOR Elizabeth Hallman is about to leave Kalmar for a fresh start in Stockholm. But as she becomes increasingly more involved in the investigation she has tried to distance herself from, it’s easier said than done.

FRONT IS A crime story like you’ve never seen before. A thrilling, innovative, and multi-layered dark suspense novel. It is the first book in a new suspense series by debut authors Hurtig Wagrell.

“A modern suspense novel, in the true sense of the word. A chilling observation of the human need to be seen, at all costs. It is clear that the authors are comedians, not only for the subtle humour, but above all for the acute ability to observe the present.”
Author Fredrik Backman

“Hurtig Wagrell’s writing is not only suspense filled but also with a subtle humour that few can match”.
Author Jens Lapidus
