What you need to know before your trail

The tiny Swedish island of Sandhamn has always been a haven for lawyer Nora Linde. With trouble brewing in her marriage, she finds its comforts more welcome than ever, even in the depths of winter. That is, until her two young sons trip across a severed arm in the woods.

The boys’ gruesome discovery will once again connect Nora with her childhood friend Thomas Andreasson, now a local police detective. When the limb is identified as belonging to a twenty-year-old woman who disappeared without a trace months earlier, what had been a missing persons case takes on a whole new urgency.

Nora and Thomas delve deeply into the woman’s final hours, each of them wrestling not only with the case but with the private demons it awakens in them. As they do, they’ll find themselves drawn into the history of Sandhamn and the tensions that have been simmering just below the surface for more than a hundred years.

Travel Guide

Sandhamn and the Viveca Sten Trail

Sandhamn is a small and usually peaceful holiday island in the Stockholm archipelago, not far from the city of Stockholm itself. But the island is a world in itself, a remote island in the sense that not many people live here and those there in July all seem to be on their Midsummer Holiday. In the summer, tourists flock to the place with the “beautiful beaches and delightful regattas”In Guiltless, however, the snow is coming thick and fast and there’s frost on the ground as well as in the heart of some of the characters…

This is usually a place to rest and relax, to eat the fresh fish straight from the still waters, to take a boat ride, to escape the noise of the city.

Sandhamn is a clam and peaceful place..well maybe not in Viveca Sten’s version!

This one goes back further still – to a Sandhamn family going back as far as 1899….and 1920s and 1960s and back to the present day.
