Blood Shame

Caroline Engvall

Sometimes the people you love the most turns out to be the ones you should not trust…

The first part in a new suspense series about sisterhood and dark secrets that takes us from divine white beaches in Thailand to the dark hinterland of northern Sweden. Elizabeth goes to Thailand on holiday with her mother, her sister Sofia and her sister’s family. On New Year’s Eve, Sofia disappears, a few hours later she is found dead in the water, presumed drowned. What was supposed to be a wonderful family event ends with a devastating disaster.

While processing her grief after Sofia’s death, Elizabeth can’t help but to question the circumstances of the accident. What really happened on the paradise island? And why does everyone around her seem to be hiding something? The event takes Elizabeth back to her family’s past, to childhood memories and to the small community of Ormvattnet, where it all once began.

Betrayal, childhood trauma and family secrets converge in this explosive and suspenseful new series in the vein of domestic thrillers like Mattias Edvardsson’s A Nearly Normal Family combined with the Nordic folklore elements seen in Johan Theorin’s successful Öland-series.
