Book - 2013
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
Fifteen years ago: A teenage girl is viciously assaulted as she picks flowers in a field one night in midsummer. The crime is never reported. Present day: A man with no identification on his person is killed in a hit-and-run. He is never reported missing. Across the city, a priest and his wife are found dead in an apparent suicide. Fredrika Bergman is assigned to the case. What she and her colleagues discover is that a sinister evil, the roots of which date back decades, is the link behind these seemingly unrelated crimes. There's a reason why none of them were ever reported, and it has to do with a shocking and horrendous cover-up unlike anything Fredrika could have possibly imagined. Skillfully crafted and highly suspenseful, Silenced is a gripping thriller in which the consequences of past tragedies continue to haunt the present, reaching further and deeper than anyone ever expected.

This was a very complex plot, but was certainly a 'page turner'. I expect I'll read more of her books.

Very complicated - perhaps more so because of the translation.

This is a complicated mystery/thriller about Swedes and the trafficking of illegal aliens. All the police protagonists had a a little too much going on in the way of relationship baggage. It didn't actually get in the way of the story, but was still unnecessary.
