Karin Alvtegen was born in Jönköping, Sweden, in 1965 and had a varied career, including work in set design for film and stage, before she started to write. She won Sweden's most prestigious crime novel award, the Glass Key, in 2000 with her novel, Missing, and further acclaim with her next two novels, Betrayal and Shame. She is the great-neice of Astrid Lindgren (author of the Pippi Longstocking stories), and lives in Stockholm.
Shortlisted for the CWA International Dagger 2009. Having already won several prizes in her homeland of Sweden, Alvtegen is now making waves further afield. This slow-burning, psychological thriller builds to a suspense-filled and surprising ending. Stick with it, you won’t be disappointed.
