Following their bestselling debut novel, Spring Tide, Cilla and Rolf Borjlind are back with the second instalment in the series. Samira is dead. She died last night. But now she is looking down over the roofs of Marseille. She remembers how he strangled her, how he bashed in her skull with an ashtray. How he cut off her head and buried her body in six different places. She hopes someone will find her...some day. Olivia Ronning is still struggling to come to terms with her brutal entry into the world. Cut from the womb of her murdered mother, with only seconds to spare, she is left with haunting dreams, brutal feelings and guilt. From now on she has resolved to rely solely on herself, and she will restyle herself Olivia Riviera - in homage to her dead mother. When Olivia's friend Sandra Sahlmann discovers her father's body hanging in the hall of their house, the police initially assume suicide. But something doesn't sit right. Having veered away from her budding career as a police office, Olivia knows she should leave this alone - but she is just too close to this case, it's personal now. Bengt Sahlmann's suicide/murder lands on Mette Olsater's desk. Tom Stilton is dragged into Samira's murder, following a personal request from Abbas. And Olivia for her part can't let Sandra's questions go unanswered. The three investigations seem bound to cross paths. Will they all be able to put their former disagreements and personal demons aside and work together to solve their cases - and prevent further people from dying?

Even if you’re an aficionado of Nordic Noir, you may not have read anything by the impressive duo Cilla and Rolf Börjlind yet, but you may have seen their work, as they are two of the most in-demand screenwriters for filmed Scand-inavian crime around. The two were responsible for the Arne Dahl series and a variety of adaptations of the classic detective Martin Beck. With books such as Third Voice, however, they may soon be recognised in the UK as highly individual talents in their own right. Swedish police trainee Olivia is suffering from disturbing dreams, but when a family friend is discovered hanged, she does not accept that it is suicide. The following narrative (a hefty read at nearly 500 pages) depicts the search for truth with great intensity.
'Enough to keep any thriller fan up for hours... terrific and memorable'
'A major new crime series... keeps the reader gripped'
