Product description

Book Description

The electrifying thriller from the writers of BBC4 Swedish TV drama SEBASTIAN BERGMAN and the creator of the hugely successful series THE BRIDGE.

From the Back Cover

Our darkest secrets will never stay buried.


Our darkest fears will force them back down.


Someone has a secret darker than them all.



Sixteen-year-old Roger has vanished. Days pass and Västerås Police do nothing, blaming his disappearance on teenage antics. Then Roger's pale, mutilated body is found floating in a shallow pond, his heart missing, and the experts descend.



They need Sebastian Bergman. Top criminal profiler and angry, self-destructive mess, Bergman is no stranger to secrets. Desperate for access to police files, he plays along, until the brittle web of lies and deception seizes his full attention.



But Roger had his own secrets - dark secrets that are tearing apart the very fabric under which they all survive . . .



The electrifying Swedish international bestseller to rival the very best of Jo Nesbo, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson.
