By Anna Karolina

In this new suspense novel from critically acclaimed crime author Anna Karolina, we are introduced to three women; Julia, Carla and Nikolina. Friends since childhood, they lead normal lives in Malmö. Julia is a doctor, Carla is a tattoo artist and Nikolina works as a sky-diving instructor. However, they also share a secret life together – the women like to carry out crime in their spare time, from early teenage ATM-robberies to more intricate thefts.

Now, they are planning the heist of the decade: to kidnap the son of a clothing company mogul and exchange him for a record breaking ransom – and then live happily ever after. It has to be perfect. With everything at stake and for a number of personal reasons, nothing can go wrong.

After a successful kidnapping, the mogul refuses to pay the ransom, and everything goes downhill from there. The three women are forced back to their real lives, desperately trying to keep up appearances, knowing very well that it’s a race against time. The victim ends up in Julia’s hospital where she’s forced to take care of him.

Meanwhile, the police officer in charge of the kidnapping case, Carsten, is slowly piecing the clues together. All of them had their individual reasons for carrying out the kidnapping, but they must tie up all loose ends before time runs out and it’s all too late.
