What you need to know before your trail

After an orientation day at school, a boy is found dead in the nearby woods. Animals have already got a hold of the body and it’s not a pretty sight. The boy has also been robbed. After a spate of robberies in the local area of Bromma, the suspicion falls on them.

Detective Inspector Emma Sköld must solve the case before the killer strikes again, but she has a feeling that something is not right. Could her colleagues be hiding something?

This is going to be a tricky case but nothing that she could have even imagined.

Travel Guide

Stockholm and Bromma

Bromma is a small and nice suburb of the city where the regional airport is located. There are woods and a nice rural feel to it despite it being a part of Stockholm itself.

Not so nice in the book where there are robberies and crimes amongst young people. Where a body is found in the nearby woods.

Noir just got real.
