YOU ARE NEVER REALLY ALONE
A father of two is brutally murdered during his morning jog along a beautiful beach, leaving his family exposed and vulnerable. The investigation seems to be going nowhere—until a Russian tanker docks nearby and a second murder is discovered.
The Dead of Summer is set on the most isolated island in the Baltic Sea. It’s a raw crime novel combined with a tragic drama, and this time around, Anders Knutas’ intuitive assistant Karin Jacobsson leads the investigation.
Smart plots and swift, excruciating suspense have made Mari Jungstedt one of Sweden’s most beloved authors. With over three million copies of her novels sold thus far, Jungstedt is one of the best selling crime-in-translation authors for Random House UK.
“One of the best writers of Scandinavian crime fiction.” —Harlan Coben
”Jungstedt creates the special atmosphere of Nordic crime – that land of snow and ice that fires our imagination.” —Independent
“Jungstedt delivers an excellent clammy atmosphere and a constant premonition of weird deaths to come. She’s becoming one of Scandinavia’s best crime writers, no mean compliment in a crowded field.”
—The London Times
