You Are Not Alone
You Are Not AloneMari Jungstedt
Mari Jungstedt is a major Swedish Crime sensation: 15 books published in 17 languages. YOU ARE NOT ALONE is the eleventh book in Mari Jungstedt’s hugely successful Gotland series.
A warm, late summer morning in September, two-year-old Andrea Eliasson disappears from a beauty salon in Visby, where her mother works. None of the passers-by on the quiet cobbled street saw who or what it was that took her away.
When another child disappears from the annual autumn market in Hemse, the police investigation intensifies. Only a few weeks later a woman is found murdered in the reeds next to the deep and lonely Lojsta swamp.
The investigation is led by Superintendent Karin Jacobsson, covering for Anders Knutas who is at home, ill. In the midst of this hectic investigation, they are also fighting for their love.
Somewhere in the autumn darkness a killer is hiding. And a child-kidnapper. Is it the same person?
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.
