From the award-winning author of the international sensation Sun Storm comes this disturbing, entrancing, beautifully crafted mystery set in northern Sweden.
It's midsummer in Sweden, when the light lingers through dawn as the long winter finally ends. In this magical time, a brutal killer strikes, and the murder of a female priest sends shock waves through the community. With no cause to get involved, attorney Rebecka Martinsson cannot help herself. And the further she is drawn into a mystery that will soon claim another victim, the more the dead woman's world consumes her, a world of hurt and healing, sin and sexuality, and above all, of lethal sacrifice.
