Présentation de l'éditeur
Marianne Jidhoff is having trouble getting back on her feet after the death of her husband, Hans. As Stockholm’s Attorney General, Hans was known as much for his marital indiscretions as his ability to solve complex cases. But Olle Lundqvist, Lead Prosecutor at the department and Marianne’s friend of many years, knows that she was the brain behind Hans’s success. He persuades her to come back to work, and she quickly shakes her grief as she finds herself at the center of a series of mysterious killings among Stockholm’s upper echelons. Marianne teams up with the brash and handsome investigator Torsten Ehn to find out who is behind the murders, and together they uncover a kinky secret society populated by the city’s elite.
This sexy twist on the Scandinavian crime tradition—dubbed Elegant Crime by the author—is both a colorful glimpse into the rarefied world of Sweden’s rich and powerful and a beguiling mystery featuring a cast of unforgettable characters.
