Content descriptions

General Note:
"Originally published as Rotvalta in Sweden in 2020 by Lind & Co."--Title page verso.
Summary, etc.:
"It's been more than twenty years since Olof Hagström left home. Returning to his family's house, he knows instantly that something is amiss. The front door key, hidden under a familiar stone, is still there. Inside, there's a panicked dog, a terrible stench, water pooling on the floor. Upstairs in the shower, the father Olaf has not seen or spoken to in decades is dead. For police detective Eira Sjödin, the investigation of this suspicious death resurrects long-forgotten nightmares. She was only nine when Olof Hagström, then fourteen, was found guilty of raping and murdering a local girl. The case left a mark on the town's collective memory, a wound that never quite healed, and tinged Eira's childhood with fear. Too young to be sentenced, Olof was sent to a youth home and exiled from his family. He was never seen in the town again. Until now."--Dust jacket flap.

    Swedish investigator Eira Sjödin learns that the policing advantage of knowing everyone in the country's High Coast region cuts both ways. For 20 years, Olof Hagström has managed to distance himself from the grisly crime in his past until an impulsive visit to his childhood home leads him to his estranged father's body. the first cop on the scene, Eira realizes that Sven Hagström has been stabbed, and she recalls Olof's teenage confession to the rape and murder of Lina Svenstad. The investigators' hopes for a slam-dunk resolution are dashed, however, when Olof's alibi checks out, another suspect with a motive to silence Sven turns up, and a vigilante firebombing demolishes the crime scene. As the murder and arson investigations progress, Eira becomes convinced that Olof's teenage murder confession was coerced and follows the trail to another body that puts someone she loves in the spotlight. This compelling and expertly constructed procedural, the winner of the Glass Key Award for Nordic crime fiction, makes a winning recommendation for fans of Helene Tursten's Embla Nyström and Ragnar Jónasson's Dark Iceland series.
