The first standalone Swedish crime novel by Hans Rosenfeldt, creator of the TV series The Bridge as well as Netflix’s Emmy-winning Marcella.
A dead wolf. A drug deal gone wrong. A female assassin of rarely seen skill. Hannah Wester, a policewoman in the remote northern town of Haparanda, finds herself on the precipice of chaos.
When human remains are found in the stomach of a dead wolf, Hannah knows that this summer won’t be like any other. The remains are linked to a bloody drug deal across the border in Finland. But how did the victim end up in the woods outside of Haparanda? And where have the drugs and money gone?
Hannah and her colleagues leave no stone unturned. But time is scarce and they aren’t the only ones looking. When the secretive and deadly Katja shows up, unexpected and brutal events start to pile up. In just a few days, life in Haparanda is turned upside down. Not least for Hannah, who is finally forced to confront her own past.
Hannah and her team are on the hunt for a killer. The remains of a body are found inside of a wolf. It turns out to be a drug deal gone wrong. But, as the hunt continues, Hannah has to confront some of her own issues.
I enjoyed the setting of Finland and the surrounding area. However, the writing style is bit different at the first. I think because there are a good many characters to introduce and it is a bit descriptive. It took me a bit to get a handle on the rhythm. The story does pick up and so does the suspense! I certainly enjoyed the deductions and the chase for the killer.
