As dawn breaks over the freezing tundra of the far north of Sweden a hunt begins. A brute of a bear, all the more dangerous for being wounded, is on the rampage. When it is finally brought to earth the hungers are shaken by a grisly discovery. Across in Kurravaara, a woman is found murdered, dispatched with savage, frenzied brutality, crude abuse scrawled above her bloodied bed. Her young grandson - who lost his father to a road accident and his mother to her new lover - is nowhere to be found. Only Rebecka Martinsson connects the bear and the bloodshed. But dropped from the case thanks to a jealous rival, she now stands alone against an elusive killer who brings death to young and old, spawned by a horrifying crime that festers after one hundred years on ice.
The Second Deadly Sin is Martinsson's most twisted and unpredictable case to date, a tale that thrills on every level, as a page-turner and as a skeleton key to the cruellest vices of the human heart.
The numerous characters and locations were all Swedish and were difficult to remember . I soon got used to this and thoroughly enjoyed the read.Published 1 month ago by René

Absolutely one of my top 3 reads of 2014. Enjoyed it so much that I ordered All of Asa Larsson's books and they all proved that this was no flash in the pan. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Anne Foley
This is a great translation. Not at all stumbling in language which some translations suffer from. The story holds your attention as do the characters. A great read.Published 3 months ago by strangebird
