Dark Angel

by Mari Jungstedt

Part of the Anders Knutas Series

Dark Angel Synopsis

Family ties can bind dangerously tight Viktor Algard was in love. Reckless in the grip of passion, he left his wife and grown-up children to be with his new lover. His last act was a celebratory drink at a glamorous party . . . Inspector Anders Knutas must find out who on the island of Gotland hated Algard enough to poison him. At first Algard's spurned wife seems like the obvious suspect. But a second attack confirms his suspicion that there's a more complex motive behind the murder. If Knutas is to catch the killer, he must discover the truth that lies hidden at the heart of a broken family - and face some secrets within his own.

Dark Angel Press Reviews

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