Into the Maelstrom
Into the MaelstromAnn Rosman
Karin Adler returns in the much-anticipated seventh book in the Marstrand series.
It is 1867 and a fire has razed an entire neighbourhood of Marstrand to the ground, leaving its inhabitants homeless and distraught. One of them is Johanna, who had recently moved to the town to work as a maid for the local goldsmith. Was the cause of the fire an accident or could there be more to it…?
Fast forward to Marstrand a hundred-and-fifty years later. Lotta has recently moved to the island to run a hotel and becomes acquainted with Karin Adler, who is on maternity leave following the birth of her first child. Meanwhile, Karin’s police colleagues, Robert and Folke, are called to the docks where a sailor has been found dead on board a cargo ship. But questions are soon raised about the circumstances surrounding the death. And, is the frequency of the Swedish Maritime Administrations’s helicopter rescue exercises somehow connected to the case?
‘Rosman captures the old Marstrand so skilfully as to transported you there and experience everyday life in the 19th century in front of you.’ – Göteborgs-Posten
