Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Born into a life of privilege, Sybilla has spent the past many years opting instead to live on the streets of Stockholm, cadging a bed, a bath, a meal, where she can. Her favorite technique -- one she permits herself only as a special treat -- plays out at the Grand Hotel, where with luck and persistence she can usually charm a lonely visiting businessman into buying her dinner and a room for the night. But then she picks the wrong businessman. When his dead body is found the next morning, Sybilla becomes the prime suspect. And when a second person is killed in a similar manner, Sybilla becomes the most wanted woman in Sweden. For years, her anonymity has sheltered her; she has found a kind of home in the invisibility of homeless life. But with her anonymity shattered, Sybilla is forced into the one course of action that might allow her to go home again.

Book Description: Felony Mayhem, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 156 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Karin Alvtegen -- without any training or thought of becoming a novelist -- resolved to write her way out of some family tradedies: The result was her first novel, Guilt ( Skuld ), which was published in Sweden in 1998, to rave reviews. This was followed in 2000 by Missing ( Saknad ), which won Scandinavia s prestigious Glass Key award for Best Crime Novel of the Year, and went on to win an award for bestselling Scandinavian paperback. Her third novel, Betrayal ( Svek ) -- coming next year from Felony Mayhem -- was shortlisted for the Glass Key award, and also for the Swedish Crime Writers Academy award for Best Swedish Crime Novel of the year. And Swedish reviewers have called Alvtegen s most recent novel, Shame ( Skam ) (also to come from Felony Mayhem) her finest novel to date -- the work, in the words of one critic, of a modern-day Strindberg. Karin Alvtegen is the great-niece of Astrid Lundgren, author of the ever-popular Pippi Longstocking books. Bookseller Inventory # BZV9781933397863
