Camilla Läckberg is back in Fjällbacka!
Two terrible events, without obvious connection, shakes Fjällbacka to its core. A famous photographer is found brutally murdered in a showroom. Henning Bauer, the Nobel prize winner in literature, suffers from a violent act on the small island where he is writing the 10th book in his world famous series. Patrik Hedström and the colleagues at Tanumshede police station don’t get anywhere in the investigation of the cases, meanwhile Erica Falck is researching a murder on a transsexual man in Stockholm in the 1980’s. She slowly realizes that the threads from the past are connected to the present time, and that old sins leave long shadows behind.
