Why a Booktrail?

2000s: A tiny metal cog found at the scene of every crime….

  • ISBN: 978-1911215493
  • Translator: Neil Smith
  • Genre: Crime

What you need to know before your trail

At each abandoned crime scene there’s a hidden clue: a tiny metal cog, almost invisible to the naked eye. Someone is sending Detective Sam Berger a message, someone who knows that only he will understand the cryptic trail.

When another teenaged girl disappears without trace, Sam must convince his superiors that they’re dealing with a serial killer. As the police continue the hunt to find the latest victim, Sam is forced to unearth long-buried personal demons. He has no choice if he is to understand the killer’s darkly personal message before time runs out.

Somebody is killing just for him

Travel Guide


“The aspen leaves are trembling.

And so will you …..”

This is a Stockholm where every street seems to be so far away from the next one you need to go to, where one character needs to race his car too which adds to the overall chase and race scenario of some parts of the novel.

Stockholm is also on a timer with the number of clocks and time sensitive issues in the novel….with a girl taken from central Stockholm to a remote farmhouse, derelict and cold….

The main action takes place in Stockholm but there are visits and mentions of Malmaberg, Vasteras and Kristinehamn where the victims are from. And Marsta where you should take care of the woods it would seem.
