Another great read from Marklund. This may not be the first Annika Bengtzon story written but it is actually the first book in the series, however I didn't read them in order and while it might tie in the odd snipit here and there, I do not feel it is a necessity to read them in order. The story is about the body of a young women found in a park. The main character, Annika, is a young reporter who is on a temporary contract with a newspaper and trying to prove herself. Getting to the bottom of this could be her big break, and way of getting into the newspaper permanently. While reading her story you do feel that Annika is more like a detective than a reporter as she digs and digs for the truth/a good story. Furthermore throughout the book we also read pages from a journal or diary, and you get the idea that you know who the diary belongs to however, be prepared for a twist that you won't see coming....

Another great Scandanivan thriller, and an author definitely worth reading.

It is tropically hot in Stockholm when the body of a young woman is found in a park. Annika Bengtzon, newspaper journalist with a temporary contract, is sent to the scene and tries to solve the case. The victim, Josefin Liljeberg, works in a nightclub, Studio Sex, which has the same name as an influential radio programme. Because Josephine is a striptease dancer the case is quickly regarded as a "typical murder of a hooker" until the minister of foreign trade comes into the picture as a suspect. In the end he even has to resign, but Annika is convinced that not he, but the owner of the nightclub, has committed the murder. Remains the question why the minister does not deny. Annika meets more and more people who have known Josefin, including her flatmate Patricia, and that only strengthens her belief that there is more to this case. Unfortunately most other people, including her colleagues at the newspaper, do not agree with her and in the end her temporary contract is not renewed and she has to leave the newspaper. But when Annika returns from a short holiday in Turkey she finds new evidence that proves that she was right after all. With this information she gets a job at the newspaper after all, but for this she has to pay a terribly high price in her personal life.

A typical Swedish thriller, worthwhile reading.
