A moment in history triggers a wide spiralling conspiracy spanning nearly twenty years. From the occupation of the West German Embassy in Stockholm by terrorists in 1975, to 1989 and the unsolved murder of a civil servant, then to 1999 when Swedish intelligence investigates the newly instated Minister of Justice who has unexpected links with crimes of the past. Persson weaves an intriguing web of extortion, Stasi agents and greed that infiltrates all layers of Swedish society.

Leif GW Persson is the Grand Master of Scandinavian crime fiction. Over three decades, he has taken a scalpel to the political and social mores of Swedish society in his dark and complex crime novels. His work melds the social realism of a Balzac or a Dickens with the hard-boiled street smarts of James Ellroy. Persson is Scandinavia's most renowned criminologist and a leading psychological profiler. He has also served as an advisor to the Swedish Ministry of Justice. Since 1991, he has been Professor at the National Swedish Police Board and is regularly consulted by media as the country's foremost expert on crime. He is the author of nine novels. This is the first one to be translated into English.
