The frozen body of a woman is found in a fishing ark on the ice
near Torneträsk in northern Sweden. She has been brutally tortured,
but the killing blow was clumsy, almost amateur. The body is
quickly identified, raising hopes of an open-and-shut solution. But
when a six-month-old suicide is disinterred, Rebecka Martinsson and
Anna-Maria Mella find themselves investigating shocking corruption
at the heart of one of Sweden's most successful mining companies.
One that has powerful enemies of its own.
