As one can imagine, LAST WILL has the potential for an earth-shattering conclusion.
-Book Reporter


From “the Queen of Scandinavian crime fiction” (Henning Mankell), the latest installment in the internationally bestselling series starring investigative reporter Annika Bengtzon.

The inspiration for the hit film series, Annika Bengtzon: Crime Reporter, now available on Netflix.


In the midst of a brutal Scandinavian winter, a member of the Nobel Prize committee is gunned down in the city of Stockholm.

Reporter Annika Bengtzon, who made eye contact with the killer just seconds before the shots were fired, is the key witness. Because of the sensitivity of the crime, police issue a gag order on her immediately—and she is forced to figure out on her own why an American assassin known only as “the Kitten” ordered the hit. With her marriage falling to pieces and her job on the line, Annika quickly finds herself in the middle of a violent story of terror and death, the roots of which date back centuries. The research all leads her to the same man: a rich and famous industrialist responsible for one of the world’s most coveted gifts, who died a tragic and mysterious death. If Annika wants to learn the truth, she risks uncovering secrets that some will do anything to protect.

Reviewed by Sarah Death

This plot-driven novel, though clearly the fruit of considerable background research, bears some hallmarks of having been dashed off at speed, and has been surprisingly sloppily proofread.

This series has always been one of my very favourites, but here the author has surpassed herself with a great story, some intriguing historical elements, and convincing human interest
