The second page-turning novel from the new Swedish queen of crime fiction - DI Charlie Lager returns to investigate a long-buried disappearance...

DI Charlie Lager returns to investigate a long-buried disappearance in this 'atmospheric', 'evocative' and 'arresting' page-turner of a procedural from the new Swedish queen of crime fiction


She must find the truth about Francesca. Before the past catches up with her...


Thirty years ago, teenager Paul Bergman was found drowned in Gullspang's lake, and his best friend Francesca vanished from her home. Paul's death was ruled a suicide, and Francesca was never found.

DI Charlie Lager is still haunted by childhood memories of a strange house and the missing girl who once lived there.

Convinced that the original investigation was flawed, Charlie is determined to uncover what really happened all those decades ago. But someone out there is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the truth from coming out...
