Helene Tursten’s explosive new series features Detective Inspector Embla Nyström, a sharp, unforgiving woman working in a man’s world.
When one of her peers is murdered during a routine hunting trip, Embla takes charge of the search to track down the killer. But the murky underworld she uncovers during the course of the investigation will force her to grapple with some dark secrets of her own.
‘As good as Louise Welsh’s similarly creepy tour of Glasgow.’
‘Embla is a winning new Scandinavian noir lead.’
‘These days Scandinavian crime writers are thick on the ground. It’s nice to see that the women can be just as bloodthirsty as the men.’
‘[An] outstanding series launch…Embla is a refreshingly capable lead, whose situational ethics means that she doesn’t feel she must do everything by the book.’
