This is the second book that I read which wrote by Swedish authors. The first one was from Stieg Larsson. I'm getting more interested to read more books from Swedish authors especially crime stories. Their stories are always unique and unexpected. I'm looking forward to read other books by Roslund-Hellstrom. The story has an unexpected ending which makes it even more fascinating. I will definitely recommend this book to others.
