Book description from cover: In the fishing community of Fjallbacka life is remote, peaceful, and for some, tragically short. Foul play was always suspected in the disappearance twenty years ago of two young campers, but their bodies were never found. Until a young boy, playing on the rocky outcropping of the sea, discovered the body of a young woman--and, underneath this victim, the skeletons of the two missing campers.
Young Patrik Hedstrom, detective for the local police, ( character from the Ice Princess and expecting a baby with his companion writer Erica Falck) is put in charge of the investigation into the three murders. With his impending fatherhood, he is keenly aware of the pain of the parents over the loss of their daughters and their need to know, finally, what happened to them. This urgency increases when a second girl goes missing from a local caravan camp site. Hedstrom focuses his attention on the Hults, a feuding clan of misfits, religious fanatics, and criminals. The suspect list is long, but time is short for the detective to find the killer (s) before the missing girl suffers the same fate as the other three women.
