Darkness In Our MidstMari Jungstedt
Mari Jungstedt is a major Swedish Crime sensation: 15 books published in 17 languages. DARKNESS IN OUR MIDST is the fourteenth book in her Gotland series, which has sold over 5 million copies in Sweden alone!
A storm brews during the offshore sailing race around Gotland. One of the favourites to win the race is suddenly forced to take cover in a sheltered bay when their mast breaks. But they find no respite there; on the shore lies a dead man, gagged and bound and with a fractured skull.
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, and 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.
