Mari Jungstedt, the major Swedish Crime sensation: 15 books published in 17 languages


Set on the picturesque island of Gotland a couple of hours south of Stockholm in the Baltic Sea, is known for its spectacular scenery and wild weather. The isolation of the island is the perfect setting for a crime series that plays on the hair-raising feeling that even when you’re alone, someone is watching you.

The series follows inspector Anders Knutas, who works at the Visby police where he has worked for thirty years. He has an ailing marriage, and harbours secret feelings for his co-worker Karin Jacobsson, a bundle of energy who is strangely secretive about her private life.

Knutas and Jacobsson investigate the violent crimes, that take them into the secluded homes and dark secrets of the Gotland citizens they serve to protect.
