Deep In the Forest is the new standalone novel by Marie Hermanson with journalist Ellen Grönblad and police officer Nils Gunnarson. This time we meet them during a paralysing cold winter in Gothenburg in 1926.
Maj, a nanny in the city has sought refuge from the cold inside the Natural History Museum together with the children she takes care of when all of a sudden the eldest girl, Alice, is gone.

Police officer Nils Gunnarsson shivers in his too-thin overcoat and mourning his past mistakes, when he is assigned the peculiar case. However, to successfully solve the mystery, he will once again need the help of his friend Ellen Grönblad.
