The Promised Land

Mari Jungstedt

The new series from the million-copy bestselling author Mari Jungstedt

Set on the idyllic Canary Islands off the African coast, Swedish journalist Sara Moberg and the handsome Norwegian former police detective Kristian Wede are drawn into murder enquiries involving Scandinavian tourists.

THE PROMISED LAND is the second instalment in the series and the first written by Mari on her own, bringing Moberg and Wede back into a murder investigation on Gran Canaria. Retired Swede Bengt Andersson wakes up to find his wife brutally murdered next to him in the bungalow. He cannot remember anything from the night before – does he have something to do with the murder? Meanwhile, several attacks on well-known tourist destinations threaten to upset the calm of the Canary Islands and the timing of these strange events feels too close to be coincidence. Could there be a connection with the murder?
