A father's search. A daughter in danger. A terrifying secret.
It was ten past four on the afternoon of the third of December. Everything was darkness and ink, and the snow falling turned to water.
Through it ran Sara Sandberg, the girl who was about to die, and somewhere in the cold, lead-grey hell that was Stockholm was a man who called himself her father.
In her rucksack, she had a warning for him.
Now whether he would receive it or not was all down to her.
From international bestseller and renowned Swedish screenwriter Fredrik T. Olsson comes a gripping, visionary thriller that's impossible to put down.
Born in 1969 outside Göteborg on the Swedish west coast, Fredrik T. Olsson spent most of his childhood writing, acting and producing plays. Refusing to grow up, this is pretty much what he has kept doing since. A full-time screenwriter for film and television since 1995, Fredrik has written scripts in genres ranging from comedy to thrillers, as well as developing, showrunning and head-writing original material for various Swedish networks. He is also a standup comedian and makes occasional contributions as a director.
