Product Description

A local woman is killed in a tragic car crash, but while the victim’s blood contains high alcohol levels, she rarely drank a drop. Meanwhile, a reality TV show begins shooting in Fjällbacka, and as cameras shadow the stars’ every move, tempers flare. When a drunken party ends with an unpopular contestant’s murder, all eyes turn to the cast and crew. Could there be a murderer among them? The ratings spike as the country tunes in to a real life murder mystery.

Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden? Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his most challenging investigation yet.


“A gripping story that springs to life under the voice of Vance and in an audio drama that just won’t quit.”
      —California Bookwatch

“[Läckberg’s] convoluted plots, deftly drawn characters and super sense of suspense make her a formidable fashioner of fine crime fiction, impeccably evoked here by narrator Simon Vance.”

“Simon Vance’s smooth, leisurely reading fits well with Läckberg’s prose, and capably draws the listener into the story.”
      —Publishers Weekly

“Narrator Simon Vance is a master of his craft. Even his pauses build a sense of character or place. . . . Vance’s abilities enhance author Camilla Läckberg’s own considerable authorial gifts.”

“Her best book to date in this fourth series entry. . . . Highly recommended for Läckberg’s many devotees as well as fans of cozy police procedurals.”
      —Library Journal [HC starred review]
