The brand-new thriller featuring Investigative Analyst Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht of the Stockholm police.
On a cold winter's day, a preschool teacher is shot to death in front of parents and children at the Jewish Congregation in Stockholm. Just a few hours later, two Jewish boys go missing on their way to tennis practice. A heavy snowstorm hits Stockholm, and the traces of the perpetrator are few and far between.
Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht are faced with one of their toughest challenges ever as they hunt for a killer who seems as merciless as he is effective. The leads in the investigation are many and diverse, but in the end they all point to the same place: Israel. Someone or something called the Paper Boy keeps popping up in the police investigation. But who was he really? And could he possibly have resurfaced in Stockholm, now claiming new victims?
This book has a great plot but is badly let down by the narrator, who bled all the atmosphere out of the story. Having intended to listen to other books by this author, I find they all have the same reader and I won't be listening to any more.

Maggie Mash ruined the book for me. I kept trying as the story seemed interesting..However I found the narration so aggravating I simply had to switch off.
Had the subject matter not interested me as much as it did I would not have made it through the first 15 minutes of this book let alone the whole thing. The narrator is a complete disaster and totally ruined the story. She is fine when she is just reading but her use of 'voices' was utterly excruciating and she quite often missed the intonation required. I will go out of my way to avoid her. That said, I'm sure she's a very nice person in real life!
