The #1 international-bestselling thriller that tells the electrifying story of a police inspector and a former criminal informant in a race against time as they attempt to unravel past and present secrets.

He thought she was safe. Then the past came knocking.

Seventeen years ago, Criminal Inspector Ewert Grens was called to the scene of a brutal crime. A family had been murdered, and the only survivor--and witness--was the five-year-old daughter. The girl was placed in the witness protection program, and the case went cold, but years later, Grens is still haunted by the seemingly random slaying, and the little girl who was spared. So when he learns that the apartment where the crime occurred is now the scene of a mysterious break-in, Grens immediately fears that someone is intent on silencing the only witness. He races to find her...before they do.

Meanwhile, someone in the city's criminal underworld is executing weapons smugglers, and has placed former police informant Piet Hoffman's family in grave danger. He must unravel the secret threat to his family, all while keeping secrets of his own. Soon his hunt for answers intertwines with Ewert's, and the two men find themselves in the middle of a criminal conspiracy that is more complicated--and dangerous--than they could have imagined.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After a lifetime of consuming devotion to his calling, Stockholm DS Ewert Grens faces his looming retirement with dread. It's fitting, then, that a cold case from Grens' past resurfaces; the recent killings of three Albanian gang enforcers bear unsettling similarities to the murders of four members of the Lilaj family 17 years earlier. The victims in both incidents were killed with the same unique signature. There was one survivor in the Lilaj murders, five-year-old Zana, whom Grens found alive in the apartment. As Grens tracks Zana through Sweden's witness-protection system, former undercover operative Piet Hoffman approaches Grens for help turning the tables on a deadly extortion plot. A traitor inside Grens' own department has stolen Hoffman's confidential informant files, threatening to unveil him to the gangsters he betrayed unless he carries out a high-profile hit, as a way of promoting a new weapon to Stockholm's gangs. Grens ferrets out the traitor, burning relationship bridges along the way, while Hoffman heads to Albania, determined to take out the arms dealers behind the extortion. Grens is an immensely compelling character whose sharp intuition and dedication to justice are reminiscent of Harry Bosch. This tense, sophisticated procedural can stand alone, but readers will find themselves drawn to Grens' seven earlier investigations."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Roslund's heart-pounding fourth Grens and Hoffman novel (after 2019's Three Hours with the late Börge Hellström), a break-in at the Stockholm apartment where every member of the Lilaj family, except five-year-old Zana, was killed 17 years earlier prompts Det. Supt. Ewert Grens to reexamine the case. Grens discovers that Zana's witness protection file has disappeared from a secure police archive just as several criminals are murdered in the same manner as her family. Meanwhile, Piet Hoffman is contacted anonymously by a person who knows all about Hoffman's time infiltrating Stockholm's criminal underworld for the police. If Hoffman doesn't start a gang war and thereby kick start demand for this new player in the weapons smuggling business, he and his family will be killed. Grens and Hoffman combine forces, as Grens senses they're working two ends of the same problem. While the peril that Hoffman faces is palpable, Grens's impending retirement and loss of purpose presents its own existential threat. This terrific mash-up of police procedural and crime thriller has strongly imagined characters, explosive action, and a twisty plot with an unexpected conclusion. It's a must for Scandinavian noir fans. Agent: Niclas Salomonsson, Salomonsson Agency (Sweden). (Jan.)"
