The Flood : A man, wearing his daughter’s wedding ring, is found in front of his fireplace, a bullet hole in his chest. A funeral director searches desperately for his brother – a man who doesn’t seem to be missed. A woman struggles to protect her children and her life as her husband turns ever more dangerous.
Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht believe that these three cases are totally unrelated… until they uncover a connection between these three people that changes everything. Soon Bergman and Recht are pulled into an escalating series of events where old sins return to haunt all involved. And someone is leaving them taunting messages… but who, and why?
“‘Make sure they stay behind the fence,’ he said to a colleague, gesturing towards the uninvited observers.
He trudged back to the house. The last few years had taken their toll on Torbjörn Ross; he’d even considered leaving the job. However, that would please far too many of his colleagues, those who couldn’t wait to get rid of him, who regarded him as unreliable. Ross shook his head. There were always people who confused a normal sense of orderliness and perseverance with mental illness.
The voice reached him on the threshold of Benke’s home. He didn’t need to turn around to see who it was. Margareta Berlin.
‘What are you doing here?’ she snapped.
‘I could ask you the same question,’ he said.
‘This is Alex Recht’s case.’
‘I’m not sure that explains why you’re here,’ Ross countered calmly.
‘I like to get out into the field.’
It was Ross’s turn to sigh. Why did Berlin have to be the kind of boss who wanted to show the foot soldiers that she was one of the gang, that she didn’t mind getting her hands dirty? Determined to ingratiate herself. Ross preferred a genuine approach, which he had learned to suss out.
‘I thought Recht’s team had been disbanded,’ he said. ‘Surely there’s no room for special units in our new organisation?’”
