For fans of: Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbo, and Karin Fossum.
In a small, frozen town in the north of Sweden, Supt. Malin Fors combines heavy brooding with a strong work ethic. When the town outcast is found naked, beaten, and hanging from a tree, Malin and the rest of the police force must devote all their resources to finding the killers. But a motley family of degenerates, a nosy journalist, and a ritualistic cult all stand in the way of a clean, speedy investigation.
