About The Book

“If you like your mysteries with a generous dose of dark explorations of the human soul and psyche, there is plenty to feast on here.”—Bookreporter.com

Praised for writing “vividly and harshly” (The Washington Times) with prose that’s “complex and heartfelt” (Kirkus Reviews), internationally acclaimed author Mons Kallentoft returns with the fourth chilling novel featuring crime investigator Malin Fors.

Spring has finally arrived, filling the Swedish countryside with sunshine and flowers after a long, dark winter. The beautiful weather is lost on Detective Investigator Malin Fors, though, troubled as she is by the unexpected death of her emotionally distant mother and what it might mean for her own fragmented and dysfunctional family. But when an explosion rocks the town square, killing two young girls, leaving their mother fighting for life, and terrifying the entire community, Malin has no time to address her family’s uncertain future. Suddenly the future of her entire city is in danger, and she may be the only one who can save it…

Raves and Reviews

“Don't bother with Stieg Larsson... Kallentoft is better.”

– Magnus Utvik, Sweden's leading literary critic

“If you like your mysteries with a generous dose of dark explorations of the human soul and psyche, there is plenty to feast on here…[Kallentoft] has a knack for being able to seamlessly unite the unusual...with otherwise mundane issues such as family estrangements and secrets…in a manner reminiscent of such American masters of police procedural fiction as Ed McBain.”

– Book Reporter

"My current favourite among the Scandinavian crime writers is another Swede, Mons Kallentoft. So far, three of his Malin Fors books have been translated into English: Midwinter BloodSummertime Death, and Autumn Killing. I loved them all, particularly for the way Kallentoft gives a voice to his victims."

– Alex Gray, author of Sleep Like the Dead

“One of those books that will keep you up throughout the night. . . Make room on your shelf--and calendar--for this one.”

– Bookreporter.com on AUTUMN KILLING

"One of the best-realised female heroines I've read by a male writer." 

– The Guardian

“Complex, heartfelt.”

– Kirkus Reviews on AUTUMN KILLING

“Don't bother with Stieg Larsson... Kallentoft is better.”

– Magnus Utvik, Sweden's leading literary critic

"The highest suspense."

– Camilla Lackberg, international bestselling author of The Ice Child on MIDWINTER BLOOD

"This is a dark novel, full of awful people and desperate loneliness. Kallentoft is ruthless in his descriptions, but there is a great story here with solid police work leading Fors to the tale of the dead man in the tree. A must for the fans of Swedish crime novels."

– The Globe and Mail on MIDWINTER BLOOD
