In this chilling crime novel starring the elusive, tough-as-nails Swedish police superintendent Malin Fors, a combustive summer turns deadly. In the midst of the hottest summer anyone can recall, a sweltering heat wave and raging forest fires plague the small Swedish burg of Linköping. Things get especially hot for police superintendent Malin Fors when a teenage girl is found naked and bleeding in a city park, incapable of recollecting how she came to such a state. Then, the corpse of a teenage girl turns up on a lakeside beach. For Malin, the divorced, thirty-four-year-old mother of a teenage daughter, the case is more than an explosive nightmare in a season of fire—it’s personal.
Dark and brooding, with a protagonist that has earned Kallentoft’s novels a global readership, Summer Death is crime fiction at the cutting edge.
