Magnus Trygg, temporarily in charge of the High Coast district, is called out to a body with a knife in its back. August Frisk, who alerted him, insists he's never seen the man before, and the others living there agree. The only suspect is Paulus, a Sami reindeer herder who flees to the White Sea where the Russian authorities prove uncooperative. Inspector Amrén suggests the case be suspended until he can be questioned. But Magnus, eager to prove himself, carries on probing. He's sensed hidden tensions at Frisk's and, his own marriage in crisis, he's powerfully drawn to August's daughter-in-law, Hanna. But putting pressure on already vulnerable people reveals other secrets which have unwanted consequences for them all. Set in northern Sweden, Poland and the crime-ridden Russian enclave of Karliningrad in 2004, this is the second book in the Magnus Trygg series, following 'Come Into My Arms'.
Robin Porecky is of Polish origin but was born and brought up in England. For over twenty-five years he has worked in Sweden as a writer and knife-maker. This is his seventh novel, following ‘A Pathless Land', ‘Fool's Island', ‘Come Into My Arms', ‘The Devil's Field', ‘Finished' and ‘RaRa's Last Fan Dance'. It is the fifth and final book in the Magnus Trygg Swedish crime series.
