A vivid tale of suspense from one of Sweden’s finest crime writers

As spring arrives in the far north of Sweden, a young woman’s body surfaces through the breaking ice of the River Thorne. At the same time, visions of a shadowy figure haunt the dreams of Rebecka Martinsson, a prosecutor in nearby Karuna. Could the body belong to the ghost in her dreams? And where is the dead girl’s boyfriend?

Joining forces once again with police inspector Anna-Maria Mella, Rebecka finds herself drawn into an investigation that stirs up long-dormant rumors of a German supply plane that went missing in 1943—and of Nazi collaborators in the town, where shame and secrecy shroud the locals’ memories of the war.

And on the windswept shore of a frozen lake lurks a murderer who will kill again to keep the past buried forever beneath half a century’s silent ice and snow.

Quotes & Awards

  • Critics used to be able to dismiss crime fiction with a few condescending remarks about language and psychology. Soon they won't be able to do that anymore. Asa Larsson's book, for example, stands firmly on the three most important tenets: style, human understanding, and plot. Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)
  • Stunning... As doom-filled as Larsson's leitmotif of ravens (in old Scandinavia the messengers of Odin, god of poetry and berserker fury), this remarkable tale of twisted love and vengeance and redemptive nonjudgmental devotion resounds, like its epigraph from the Book of Job, with all the pain of human existence. Publishers Weekly (Starred)
  • Larsson's laid back style makes her unflinching probing of the icy depths of the human heart all the more chilling. Jake Kerridge, Telegraph
  • Larsson's best book so far. The supernatural elements are worked seamlessly into a complex and engaging mystery, resulting in a thoroughly compelling reading experience. Booklist (Starred)
  • Language that is by turn simple and clear, and by turn poetically brilliant. Norrlandska Socialdemokraten (Sweden)
  • “This remarkable tale of twisted love, vengeance, and redemptive nonjudgmental devotion resounds, like its epigraph from the Book of Job, with all the pain of human existence.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The fourth Rebecka Martinsson novel…may be Larsson’s best book so far. The supernatural elements are worked seamlessly into a complex and engaging mystery…thoroughly compelling.”

    Booklist, (starred review)

  • Among the current batch of Nordic writers, the new Larsson is one to be followed with the most minute attention. Barry Forshaw, Independent
