The Lonely Ones
The Lonely OnesHåkan Nesser
A trip behind the Iron Curtain would change their lives forever…
It begins in 1969. Six young people arrive in Uppsala. Different circumstances push the three young couples together and, over the course of a few years, they become friends. A summer trip throughout Eastern Europe changes everything, and when their time in Uppsala is over it also signals the end of something else. Years later, a lecturer at Lund University is found dead at the bottom of a cliff in the woods close to Kymlinge. It is the very same spot where one of the Uppsala students died some thirty-five years before.
Detective Inspector Gunnar Barbarotti takes on this ominous case of history repeating itself, and is forced to confront an increasingly grave reality.
THE LONELY ONES is the fourth novel in Håkan Nesser’s Barbarotti quintet.
