In Mari Jungstedt's spine-tingling novel, The Dead of Summer, the most isolated island in the Baltic Sea, Gotska Sandon, north of Gotland, serves as the setting for her perfect crime story. A husband and father of two is mysteriously murdered while on holiday, taking a morning jog. With no evidence of a motive or suspect, assistant commissioner Karin Jacobsson is assigned to her first major case to lead the investigation while her boss, Superintendent Anders Knutas is away on holiday. Meanwhile, TV reporter Johan Berg keeps pace with the police team, while at the same time distracted in trying to win back his former love and the mother of his child, Emma Winarve, who resides on the island. One of ten in her popular Anders Knutas series, Jungstedt weaves a crime story that raises the eerie question are we ever truly alone? Or, is there always someone watching and waiting?
