...it's a fine line between short, pithy sentences and the "See Spot run" school of prose, and large chunks of the book read as though written with a short, stubby crayon.

Synopsis

Scandinavia's undisputed queen of crime fiction, Liza Marklund, is the #1 international bestselling author of the Annika Bengtzon series, now available from Vintage Canada.
 
Five murders in 1 week, a smuggling operation gone wrong, and a crime reporter desperate to find the truth...
 
A hurricane has swept over Sweden and left the country in turmoil. At a derelict port in Stockholm, a young woman is on the run from a deranged gunman. The following morning, a security guard finds the bodies of 2 men, brutally murdered. And a valuable lorry shipment of cigarettes has disappeared from the port. Meanwhile, copy editor Annika Bengtzon is thinking she'll never be able to write her own articles for the Evening Post when she is approached by a woman wanting her story published. She claims to have founded an organization capable of erasing people's pasts--giving vulnerable individuals a new identity and helping them to build a new life. But as Annika embarks on her investigations, more vicious murders follow and she finds herself getting dangerously close to the truth--that all is not as it seems...
