The Fourth Victim by Mari Jungstedt
  

Lovereading view...

An armed robbery is over in minutes, leaving a little girl on the road, hit by the getaway car. Desperate to find those responsible, the police track down one of the culprits. But he is dead, brutally murdered at a remote farm. Tattooed on his arm are three initials: his own and two others. The only clues to the identity of his friends. As the hunt to find the remaining two robbers intensifies, there's every chance the murderer is on their trail too. Can Detective Superintendent Knutas beat them to it?

Synopsis

The Fourth Victim by Mari Jungstedt

A violent robbery. A hit-and-run. A brutal murder. In the stifling heat of an August morning on the beautiful Swedish island of Gotland, terror shatters the calm.

Reviews

'Writers such as Henning Mankell may outsell Jungstedt in the UK, but - if there is any justice - she will not remain caviar to the general' -- Barry Forshaw

'There is an icy dispassionate grip to Jungstedt's writing that recalls Henning Mankell Metro She is in total control of plot and pace, conveys chilling atmosphere and her characters are well above average for believability' The Times

'Jungstedt delivers excellent clammy atmosphere and a constant premonition of weird deaths to come. She's becoming one of Scandinavia's best crime writers, no mean compliment in a crowded field' The Times
