I MAKTENS SKUGGA – THE PRICE OF POWER

BY STEN, VIVECA

It has been almost 20 years since Inspector Thomas Andreasson started working as a police officer and for the first time he is doubting his chosen career. His best friend Nora Linde, now working at the National Economic Crimes Bureau, is on vacation with her partner Jonas and their four year-old daughter Julia.

This summer, there is trouble in paradise. Big trouble that starts with the arrival of a new summer guest. Carsten Larsson is a Venture Capitalist from London with a very checkered past. He has bought a huge plot, right on the beach, on the south side of the island, where he has built a luxurious summer house that has the locals up in arms.

When the family’s au pair finds a seagull with its throat cut on the front steps of the house things take a turn for the worse. Then, on the night of Carsten’s Larsson’s luxurious house warming disaster strikes. Is the event linked to the curious accidents and the dead seagull or are there great forces at play? Who can you trust when you’ve made enemies out of everyone?

In this seventh book in the Sandhamn Murder series Thomas Andreasson takes on a case where hidden forces move through the summer paradise. At the same time as he struggles with his own feelings of inadequacy Thomas is faced with one of his toughest cases yet.
