Author(s): Leif G. W. Persson
It begins with the apparent suicide of a young American student in Stockholm. What is at first an open and shut case of suicide quickly leads to a complex web of international espionage, treachery and ultimately the legendary murder of the Swedish Prime Minister, Olof Palme. Dogged by the incompetence of their colleagues and the murkiness of the political aspects of the case, a few good and honourable policemen must make their way through a world of corruption, violence and prejudice if they are to survive and discover the truth behind the greatest trauma to hit Sweden in living memory. One of the greatest Swedish crime novels of all time, released in English for the first time.
