GIVEAWAY – 3 copies of “After She’s Gone” set in SWEDEN!

17th March 2019

We are delighted to offer you THREE copies of “After She’s Gone”, by Camilla Grebe, a crime thriller set in SWEDEN. a top notch crime thriller!

After She's Gone

A case as cold as the season. A profiler who can’t remember. A killer ready to strike again.

Psychological profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schön and her partner, investigator Peter Lindgren are invited to the small, sleepy industrial town of Ormberg to investigate a cold case: ten years earlier a five-year-old girl’s remains were found in a cairn near the town.

But when a recurring memory problem resurfaces, Hanne struggles to keep track of the case. She begins keeping a diary, noting down everything she is likely to forget to keep up appearances so she doesn’t lose her job.

When the body of a woman is found at the cairn and one of Hanne’s shoes is found nearby covered in the victim’s blood, can Hanne’s diary hold the key to what happened? How does this new murder connect to their old one?

How can you put together what happened when the pieces keep fading away?

HOW TO ENTER:

Just tell us in the comments below on this page what comes to mind when you think of SWEDEN (ABBA, Volvo, Ikea or something else!). It’s as simple as that. Do this by midnight (UK time) on 30th March and the first three names out of the hat will be sent a copy direct from the publisher.

UK ENTRIES ONLY!

    It was a a skiing trip a few years ago, my mate was beside me, next second he was gone! The tip of his lead ski caught a rock and sent him head first into the snow! Funniest thing ever! PS he was okay.

    After reading *Red Snow” I think about elk forests! But prior to reading Will Dean’s books I thought about a Swedish girl who came to stay with my family back in 1956 and gave me one of those little painted wooden horses, She didn’t think much of us whereas I am still in touch with the lovely Danish who also stayed, (Malvern used to hold an International Festival every few years and so we hosted choirs, dance groups etc in our own homes)
