In this atmospheric and unforgettable sequel to Midwinter Blood, the elusive, tough-as-nails Swedish police superintendent Malin Fors returns.

In the midst of the hottest summer anyone can recall, a sweltering heat wave and raging forest fires plague the small Swedish burg of Linköping. Things get especially hot for police superintendent Malin Fors when a teenage girl is found naked and bleeding in a city park, incapable of recollecting how she came to such a state. Then the corpse of a teenage girl turns up on a lakeside beach. For Malin, the divorced, thirty-four-year-old mother of a teenage daughter, the case is worse than a nightmare—it’s personal.

Dark and brooding, with a protagonist who has earned Kallentoft’s novels a global readership, Summer Death is cutting-edge crime fiction that will keep you thirsting for more.
