Publisher's Summary

Together with her one-year-old daughter, Maja, single mother Sofie Lund moves into the house she inherited from her grandfather. Sofie has such painful memories that she has had every trace of the old man removed - every trace but a locked safe that has been bolted to the basement floor.

Inside the safe Sofie finds something shocking that will also become crucial evidence in a case that has plagued Inspector William Wisting for a long time. To follow this lead, though, he must cut across important loyalties and undermine confidence in the police force.

    Story
    "quite a good book,"

    this book was no littery masterpiece, but it was entertaining, I would buy books by this author again. At first the narration does not seem very good,but if you stick with for a little while you will become a fan of Saul Riechlin and the gentle way he tells the story

    Story
    "Boring, predictable and pedantic"

    I am a fan of the narrator. He did a great job in the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, but he really didn't have much to work with here. The book is a "procedural" and it is just that. All process no substance or suspense.

    Story
    "It is OK"

    This book 's strength is in the unraveling of police procedural errors. Too many unsavory characters involved in the ugly life of crime are less than interesting for my taste. Bit it is a good detective story.
