Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

Shocking corruption, torture and murder, this is the 4th gruesome case for prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson and police inspector Anna-Maria Mella. Highly recommended.

We think Asa Larsson is one of the current crop of Nordic crime writers who should definitely become household names.

The book has been translated by Marlaine Delargy who is on the editorial board of The Swedish Book Review.

If you like Asa Larsson you might also like to read books by Hakkan Nesser, Stieg Larsson and Camilla Lackberg.

Synopsis

The Black Path A Rebecka Martinsson Investigation by Asa Larsson

The frozen body of a woman is found in a fishing ark on the ice near Tornetrask in northern Sweden. She has been brutally tortured, but the killing blow was clumsy, almost amateur. The body is quickly identified, raising hopes of an open-and-shut solution. But when a six-month-old suicide is disinterred, Rebecka Martinsson and Anna-Maria Mella find themselves investigating shocking corruption at the heart of one of Sweden's most successful mining companies. One that has powerful enemies of its own.

Reviews

'Among the current batch of Nordic writers, the new Larsson is one to be followed with the most minute attention'
Barry Forshaw, Independent

'Larsson's laid back style makes her unflinching probing of the icy depths of the human heart all the more chilling'
Jake Kerridge, Telegraph
