Detective Louise Rick returns in Sara Blaedel's number-one internationally best-selling series! Louise gets a call from her son, Jonas. A school party has ended in terrifying chaos after a group of violent teenagers forced their way into the building in search of alcohol and valuables. Arriving at the scene, Louise discovers that one of the girls, 12 year-old Signe, attempted to run for help, but was struck and killed by a car. Signe's grief-stricken mother finds that her will to live instantly evaporates with the crushing loss of her only child - and she'll do anything to make those who harmed her child pay. After a carefully planned act of arson renders the already deeply disturbing case a top priority, Louise finds the evidence pulling her in several different directions at once. It is not until she receives an unexpected tip from her dear friend, investigative journalist Camilla Lind, that Louise realizes not everyone involved is telling the whole truth.... 1.

Darling, this is Younes. Yesterday he was my nephew, today he is our son'. Younes' life is changed forever when his poverty-stricken parents surrender him to the care of his more affluent uncle. Re-named Jonas, he grows up in a colourful colonial Algerian town, and forges a unique friendship with a group of boys, an enduring bond that nothing - not even the Algerian Revolt - will shake. He meets Emilie - a beautiful, beguiling girl who captures the hearts of all who see her - and an epic love story is set in motion. Time and again Jonas is forced to to choose between two worlds: Algerian or European; past or present; love or loyalty, and finally decide if he will surrender to fate or take control of his own destiny at last. AN INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER.
