    Award-winning Swedish author Giolito excels at portraying those accused of horrible crimes. Her previous novel, Quicksand (2017), focused on the trial of a teenage girl who was accused of a school shooting; this one follows the quest for a new trial of Stig Ahlin, a man accused of being both a pedophile and a murderer. Ostensibly, the work is a legal thriller starring Sophia Weber, the lawyer who may or may not take on the task of trying to free Ahlin. As in Quicksand, however, the plot frames what is the best part of the writing, an intricate examination of the psyches of criminals and those who work with them, accompanied by pointed questions about who is served by the justice system. While this is a fine novel on its own merits, it is perhaps a bit less compelling than its predecessor. Still, both novels are great reads, and libraries should have them on hand for when Netflix airs its production of Quicksand on April 15, 2019. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
