This is book number 7 in the Ann Lindell Mysteries series.
International suspense superstar Kjell Eriksson produces another masterful work of murder, intrigue, and page-turning action in this latest thriller, which features his popular series-detective Ann Lindell.
One sunny summer morning a young woman and her six-year old daughter are run over by a car. Both are killed immediately. Is it an accident, or did someone kill them on purpose?
The same morning the husband of the deceased young woman disappears. During the police investigation, it turns out that the husband had recently bought a property that nobody knew anything about. A few days later a macabre discovery is made in a forest nearby.
Eriksson has been nominated for the Best Swedish Crime Novel many times, including for Stone Coffin—the seventh novel in his critically-acclaimed and internationally-loved Ann Lindell series.
"Scandinavian authors are famously unsentimental, but Kjell Eriksson could move a man-eating shark to tears. Eriksson acknowledges deep emotion without becoming maudlin."—The New York Times Book Review
"Stone Coffin is a police procedural that refuses to wrap everything up neatly in a simple, happy ending. It remains true-to-life, believable, and troubling to the last word."—Mystery Scene
