In a Swedish village, Detective Patrik Hedstrom investigates a string of suspicious deaths—from the multimillion-copy bestselling author of The Stonecutter.
A local woman is killed in a tragic car crash, but it isn’t a clear-cut drunk driving case. The victim’s blood contains high alcohol levels, yet she rarely drank a drop. Meanwhile, a new television series begins shooting in Fjällbacka, and as cameras shadow the stars’ every move, tempers start to flare. When a drunken party ends with an unpopular contestant’s murder, all eyes turn to the cast and crew. Could there be a murderer among them? The ratings spike as the country tunes in to a real life murder mystery. Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden? Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his most challenging investigation yet.

The Stranger worth knowing
Things just don't look right. Something is just not adding up. On top of getting married in a few short weeks Patrik has two murders that are not making sense. A reality show is filming in their town and one of the participants ends up dead. A woman who has not touched alcohol in decades ends up dead in a one car traffic accident apparently drunk.
Patrik and his fellow police officers run all over the southern part of Sweden putting the clues together but the clues are leading to a possible serial killer. Not what they expected.
The Stranger is a very interesting police procedure/who done it and a lot more. That one mistake can impact so many lives, in so many ways. I highly recommend it. It was a good read.
