Rebecka Martinsson #4: Until Thy Wrath Be Past
A young woman's body surfaces through the breaking ice of a river in northern Sweden. At the same time, visions of a shadowy figure haunt the dreams of prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson. Could the body belong to the ghost in her dreams? Rebecka teams up with Police Inspector Anna-Maria Mella; their investigation stirs up long-dormant rumors of a German supply plane that went missing in 1943, and of Nazi collaborators. Shame and secrecy shroud the locals' memories of the war. And a murderer is willing to kill again to keep the past buried.
