Set on the idyllic Canary Islands in the Atlantic off the African coast, Swedish journalist Sara Moberg and the handsome Norwegian former police detective Kristian Wede, are drawn into murder enquiries involving Scandinavian tourists.


THE PROMISED LAND is the second instalment and the first written by Mari on her own, brings Moberg and Wede back into a murder investigation on Gran Canaria. Retired Swede Bengt Andersson wakes up to find his wife brutally murdered next to him in the bungalow. He cannot remember anything from the night before – has he got something to do with the murder? Meanwhile, several attacks on well-known tourist destinations threaten to upset the calm of the Canary Islands. Is there maybe a connection to the murder?
