From the #1 international bestseller and Swedish crime sensation, Camilla Lackberg’s latest psychological thriller ensnares Detective Patrik Hedstrom in a confounding new murder case.
Detective Patrik Hedstrom is no stranger to tragedy. A murder case concerning Fjällbacka’s dead financial director, Mats Sverin, is a grim but useful distraction from his recent family misfortunes.
It seems Sverin was a man who everybody liked yet nobody really knew — a man with something to hide . . .
His high school sweetheart, Nathalie, has just returned to Fjällbacka with her five-year-old son — perhaps can she shed some light on who Sverin really was?
However, Nathalie has her own secret. If it’s discovered, she will lose her only child. As the investigation stalls, the police have many questions. But there is only one that matters: Is there anything a mother would not do to protect her child?

The Lost Boy
Outstanding book!! I couldn't put it down and had to keep reading to find out what happened to Matte! Wish there was justice for Madeliene, too, and her two children. Also wish for a fairytale ending for Anders and Vivianne, but domestic violence seemed to have taken its toll on them too. I look forward to the next book with this awesome group of characters I've grown to love! This author is fantastic!!
