It’s May and the snow has hardly melted in Göteborg, Sweden, but things are heating up quickly for Detective Inspector Irene Huss in the Violent Crimes Unit. The body of a teenage girl is found in the woods, naked and horrifically scarred. Then there’s the mummified body that is discovered bricked up in a chimney on a demolition site, not to mention the city’s ongoing problem with gang violence. With the sudden influx of cases and one detective out on maternity leave, everyone is stretched thin. To make matters worse, Irene feels more than a little intimidated by the new superintendent, Efva Thylqvist, who uses her sex appeal and smooth talking to bend the predominately male staff to her will. Then a second young girl is found, wearing what appears to be the other half of the sexy lingerie set recovered near the first body. Fearing the two cases are linked and that the killer may strike again, Irene and her colleagues embark on a desperate hunt that takes them deep into a shadowy world of anonymous online predators and insecure teenage girls on a deadly quest for affirmation.

Swedish author Tursten's third Huss mystery opens with a compelling setup: Detective Inspector Huss and her team find Jacob Schyttelius, a divorced teacher, shot dead in his isolated cottage, his computer monitor marked with a bloody Satanic symbol. They visit his parents, Sten and Elsa, only to find them dead as well and with the same markings on their computer. Huss focuses her inquiry on Sten, a minister who had been investigating a local Satanist movement. The case takes Inspector Huss from Goteborg to London and eventually leads to a shocking climax.
