The first book in a new series by Hans Rosenfeldt, creator of the TV series The Bridge as well as Netflix's Emmy Award-winning Marcella.

Hannah Wester, a policewoman in the remote northern town of Haparanda, Sweden, finds herself on the precipice of chaos.

When human remains are found in the stomach of a dead wolf, Hannah knows that this summer won't be like any other. The remains are linked to a bloody drug deal across the border in Finland. But how did the victim end up in the woods outside of Haparanda? And where have the drugs and money gone?

Hannah and her colleagues leave no stone unturned. But time is scarce and they aren't the only ones looking. When the secretive and deadly Katja arrives, unexpected and brutal events start to pile up. In just a few days, life in Haparanda is turned upside down. Not least for Hannah, who is finally forced to confront her own past.

Rosenfeldt, who created the TV series The Bridge and Marcella, launches a new series with this novel that takes place in and around Haparanda, a small Swedish town near the Finnish border. Two dead wolves are discovered with human remains in their stomachs, a situation linked to a major drug deal gone bad. To top it off, the cash and drugs from the scene are missing. Police officer Hannah Wester and her coworkers take on the case, while Hannah's home life slowly begins to unravel. As the investigation continues, secrets among the people in town are uncovered as well. This audiobook is an interesting yet complex listen, as there are many phrases in Swedish or Finnish that are left for the listener to decipher. There is an overabundance of characters with multiple plot lines, so the information feels a little overwhelming at times. Fortunately, all of it comes together with an exciting ending that is left open for another book to follow. VERDICT Listeners who can get past the mystery's slow start will appreciate the action and suspense of the overall story.—Lacey Webster

Publishers Weekly


Rosenfeldt, creator of the TV series The Bridge, debuts with a fast-moving procedural set in Sweden’s remote north. The city of Haparanda has seen international trafficking, both legal and illicit, throughout its long history. When dead wolves are found with human remains in their bellies outside the city, policewoman Hannah Wester and her chief and lover, Gordon Niska, investigate. Hannah and Gordon soon have to look into a spiraling series of vicious drug-related crimes that may be related to atrocities committed by Katja, a sadistic hit woman sent by a Russian gang lord to retrieve 30 million kronor worth of drugs. Tormented by menopausal hot flashes, her own dark past, and a failing marriage, Hannah struggles through her anger at being female, as well as at Sweden’s swelling gang problem and its failing socialist policies. Rosenfeldt’s abrupt cinematic cuts and vivid bursts of violence keep the pages turning, despite the somewhat predictable plot. Haparanda, strikingly described in human terms (“she grew so fast she creaked”), is a character unto itself. This standalone is ready-made for TV. Agent: Tor Jonasson, Salomonsson Agency (Sweden).
