The Ninth Grave
|Series:||A Fabian Risk Thriller|
It is one of the worst winters Stockholm has ever seen. So when the Swedish Attorney General fails to arrive for a parliamentary debate, the media assume he got delayed by a blizzard. But then the wife of a Danish TV star is found murdered in her home - and suddenly it seems that the cases are connected. The Stockholm and Copenhagen police will do anything to avoid working together. But as the investigation starts to spiral out of control, the Danes and Swedes must end their feud and help each other ...before more people die.

'Atmospheric and complicated ... with great cop characters and some imaginatively grisly perps' Star Pick - The Sunday Times. 'Swedish crime writer of the year. Bliss' 'Books to Look For' - Irish Times.
