Borderline by Liza Marklund

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Scandi-crime featuring political journalist Annika Benztzon, an on-going series character, here with a personal problem to solve along with a possible serial killer on the loose. But it is the kidnapping of her husband and colleagues by Fiqh Jihad while at a conference in Kenya that dominates here. Forty million dollars is the ransom demand and each family attempts to find its share to release their loved ones. The group is particularly ruthless and has no qualms killing the delegates. This is tense stuff.

If you like Liza Marklund you might also like to read books by Henning Mankell, Karin Slaughter and Kristina Ohlsson.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. In the cold depths of the Swedish winter, a young mother is discovered dead behind her son’s nursery. And in different parts of the world and different seasons, other grim things are happening. In a Kenyan summer, a government official is kidnapped. Journalist Annika Bengtzon finds herself involved, but with an even more personal connection than usual: the official being held to ransom is her husband. The domination of the bestseller charts by Scandinavian crime fiction continues as inexorably as ever, and now readers have a wide range of choice. Liza Marklund’s taut writing has garnered for her a considerable reputation.
