In the Failing Light

Mari Jungstedt

Murder, historical intrigue, and personal troubles confront detectives Anders Knutas and Karin Jacobsson in this new instalment by the Queen of Crime, Mari Jungstedt.

When two Stockholm teenagers, spending their autumn break on a grey, foggy and quiet Gotland, disappear during a bike ride on the island and later turn up dead on a remote farm, Inspector Anders Knutas initiates an intense search for the cold-blooded murderer.

When the body of a curator at the island’s museum is washed up on a beach north of Visby, the police start looking for connections. Knutas and his colleague and partner Karin Jacobsson encounter a challenging case to solve whilst facing major challenges in their own, private lives.

The series is set on the picturesque island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, south of Stockholm, with a landscape renowned for its spectacular scenery and unpredictable weather. It follows Inspector Anders Knutas, who works for the Visby police, where he has been in service for thirty years.
