Dark Angel

Mari Jungstedt

Mari Jungstedt is a major Swedish Crime sensation: 15 books published in 17 languages. DARK ANGEL is the sixth book in her Gotland series.

Viktor Algård is an event planner. The morning after the fabulous party he threw for the inauguration of the new congress hall in Visby, Gotland’s capital, he is found dead – murdered, in a lift at the congress hall. A short while later, three small cottages are set on fire.

Searching for a correlation, police detective Anders Knutas is soon confronted with a dark drama that forces him to search inside himself and confront what he has thus far repressed. DARK ANGEL is Mari Jungstedt’s darkest and most psychological book yet, focusing on the difficult and complex relationship between parents and children.

Gotland’s spectacular scenery, wild weather and the isolation of the island make it the perfect setting for a crime series that plays on the hair-raising feeling that someone is watching you. The series follows Inspector Anders Knutas, who has worked for the Visby police force for thirty years. He has an ailing marriage, and harbours secret feelings for his co-worker Karin Jacobsson, a bundle of energy who is strangely secretive about her private life. Knutas and Jacobsson’s investigations take them into the secluded homes and dark secrets of the Gotland citizens they serve to protect.
