Fifteen years ago, a teenage girl was assaulted and raped as she picked flowers for a Midsummer's Eve ritual. Cut to the present, and a man is killed in a hit-and-run. He has no identification on him; he is not reported missing or wanted by the police. At the same time, a priest and his wife are found dead in an apparent suicide.
Fredrika Bergman, along with Alex Recht's federal investigation unit, is assigned to the seemingly unconnected cases. The investigations lead to a clandestine people-smuggling network: a new player on the international human smuggling market operating out of Bangkok.
As the police slowly uncover the shocking hypocrisy behind the network, they begin to find a trail that runs all the way back to the 1980s, to a crime that went unreported but whose consequences will reach further and deeper than anyone ever expected.

One of my favourite Kristina Ohlsson books, with Maggie Mash as the narrator! Nothing more ideal than that!
I would compare it to books written by Tess Gerristen
Sometimes you sample a book and the person reading is just not for you. Maggie is perfect for me, I love her clarity and enthusiasm as well as character voices.
I was often surprised at outcomes as well as following the emotions of the characters.
A follow on from the first book 'Unwanted'- What a good book! I loved every moment. Kristina keeps the suspense going right up until the last moment, not only do you want to know what happens next in the story but also what happens next with the characters. Page turner!
Silenced was a bit of a slow burner but eventually tripped along,_the plot was interesting as were some of the accents Miss Mash slipped into. overall not a bad time passer.
Very good narrator too. Plot around refugees in Sweden. I am reading Kristina Ohlsson's book in order and there is a building up of the charactrra of the investigation's team that is quite interesting.
