As more girls fall victim, each of them strangled, Winter grows increasingly certain that each crime holds the key to the others. Scratching around for clues, the police find themselves drawn into the underground clubland of Gothenburg.
A concrete connection between the murders still eludes them, but their list of suspects is growing: the spurned ex, the surly father, the naive school friends, the uncooperative victim; someone knows much more than they are letting on. Whose dark secret is threatening the young women of Gothenburg? Show more. Show less.
