The Long Shadow

A Novel

In this follow-up to Liza Marklund’s “stunningly great” (BookReporter.com) thriller Lifetime, newspaper reporter Annika Bengtzon is left to pick up the pieces after a shocking and complex murder case turns her world upside down and leaves her personal life in shambles.

Meanwhile, an intruder brutally murders an entire family on Spain’s Costa del Sol, and Annika must fly to the glitzy locale to report on the case. Upon arrival she discovers that a fifth family member is unaccounted for. Soon, the killers are found, but they too have met their demise—in the same grisly manner they killed the Söderström family.

Amid a culture weighed down by drug smuggling and money laundering, Annika must try to find the missing girl before it’s too late.
