Åsa Larsson’s The Second Deadly Sin – ARC

July 22, 2014

For aficionados of Scandinavian crime fiction, complete with a prosecutor heroine, but with more legendary and mystical elements. And apparently Oprah likes this author, too! Comment to claim.

 

The Second Deadly Sin

Oprah.com raved that Asa Larsson’s Rebecka Martinsson is a crime fighter who has all the needed gut instincts,” and listed the series as “Mysteries Every Thinking Woman Should Read.” In The Second Deadly Sin , dawn breaks in a forest in northern Sweden. Villagers gather to dispatch a rampaging bear. When the beast is brought to ground they are horrified to find the remains of a human hand inside its stomach. In nearby Kiruna, a woman is found murdered in her bed, her body a patchwork of vicious wounds, the word WHORE scrawled across the wall. Her grandson Marcus, already an orphan, is nowhere to be seen. Grasping for clues, Rebecka Martinsson begins to delve into the victim’s tragic family history. But with doubts over her mental health still lingering, she is ousted from the case by an arrogant and ambitious young prosecutor. Before long a chance lead draws Martinsson back into the thick of the action and her legendary courage is put to the test once more.
