From the Editor

The opening scene of Still Waters swept me away like a swift tide, leaving me gasping as an unsuspecting dog walker stumbles upon a corpse on the beach. As kids, my sister and I would watch the Long Island Sound through our binoculars for hours at a time, hoping to spot treasure or, with breathless anticipation, something more macabre. In fact, we once called the police because we were certain we saw a body in a tangle of rope and buoys. Our excitement mounted as the coast guard ship came speeding in, and our cheeks flushed with embarrassment when the police called back to let us know there was nothing there but seaweed.

But on idyllic Sandhamn Island off the coast of Sweden, there is a body in the net that washed onshore, and dashing police inspector Thomas Andreasson must team up with beautiful lawyer Nora Linde to piece together just how it got there. The chemistry between the two characters sparks quickly and simmers alongside their investigation. It’s no surprise that the Sandhamn Murders series was adapted for television and became a massive hit in Sweden. Gorgeous yet relatable, Nora embodies some of her creator’s best attributes. Author Viveca Sten is incredibly energetic, full of great ideas and open to anything. She’s a warm and inviting soul with a mother’s intuition, a zest for life, a keen business sense and—luckily for readers—a talent for killing the fictional residents of her beloved home away from home on Sandhamn.

The perfect rhythm that carries Still Waters steadily forward, propelled by suspense, reveals the beauty and danger of island life and leaves you yearning for the sequel, Closed Circles.

- Gabriella Page-Fort, Editor


Product description

Product Description

The first book in Swedish author Viveca Sten’s enormously popular Sandhamn Murders series.

On a hot July morning on Sweden’s idyllic vacation island of Sandhamn, a man takes his dog for a walk and makes a gruesome discovery: a body, tangled in fishing net, has washed ashore.

Police detective Thomas Andreasson is the first to arrive on the scene. Before long, he has identified the deceased as Krister Berggren, a bachelor from the mainland who has been missing for months. All signs point to an accident—until another brutalized corpse is found at the local bed-and-breakfast. But this time it is Berggren’s cousin, whom Thomas interviewed in Stockholm just days before.

As the island’s residents reel from the news, Thomas turns to his childhood friend, local lawyer Nora Linde. Together, they attempt to unravel the riddles left behind by these two mysterious outsiders—while trying to make sense of the difficult twists their own lives have taken since the shared summer days of their youth.
