The case was closed.
Everyone in Ådalen remembers the summer Lina Stavred went missing. At first, the investigation seemed like a dead end: there was no body, no crime scene, no murder weapon.
The records were sealed.
Then a local boy confessed to Lina’s murder. The case opened a wound – one the whole community has spent over two decades trying to heal.
But we know you remember.
Now Lina’s murderer has reappeared, and detective Eira Sjödin must face the spectre of his brutal crime. This is her chance to untangle years of well-kept secrets – but the truth is something Ådalen would rather forget.
I felt as though the plot line sounded quite good and intriguing but for me it was not as I would of hoped for. I found it a slow and long drawn out story, one I felt as though I wanted to finish incase it got better. It had promise with some well thought out characters and some twists that keep you from giving up reading it. I am not sure how I feel about the sensitive subjects that are spoken about in the story. I am not sure either how I would feel to read the rest of the books in this series. It is a shame really as the plot sounded good but for me didn’t live up to it.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
