From #1 internationally bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Läckberg comes a new psychological thriller—irresistible for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbø.

Mats Sverin was Fjällbacka’s financial director on a regeneration project worth millions. When he’s found dead, detective Patrik Hedström must find answers.

It seems Mats was a man who everybody liked yet nobody really knew—a man with something to hide. Is it just a coincidence that his high school sweetheart, Nathalie, has returned to the area? Does she know who Mats really was?

Nathalie has her own secret. Something has forced her and her five-year-old son to flee to their remote family home on the Ghost Isle, where she’ll shield her son from the evils of the world.

But as the murder investigation draws a blank, the police have to dig deeper—and before long, everyone’s lives will be dragged into the light.
