Game warden Mike Bowditch has been sent into exile, transferred by his superiors to a remote outpost on the Canadian border. When a blizzard descends on the coast, Bowditch is called to the remote cabin of a terrified couple. A raving and half-frozen man has appeared at their door, claiming his friend is lost in the storm. But what starts as a rescue mission soon becomes a baffling murder investigation. The dead man is an infamous drug dealer and state police suspect it was his own friend who killed him. Bowditch isn't so sure - but his vow not to interfere in the case is tested when he finds himself powerfully attracted to a beautiful woman with a dark past and a troubled young son who harbours secrets of his own..
Swedish Crime is perhaps the hottest out there at the moment as the delightfully delicious scenary reflects the darker aspects of the world as the principle players seek to solve a series of crimes that have resulted in a tight lipped community seeks to hide their own skeletons from the prying eyes of the police.
As usual with Mari, its dark, has some great twists and when you centre it all round lead characters that you really want to spend time around generates a story that is nigh impossible to put down. Add a solid supporting cast, some great dialogue alongside some cracking sleuthing and I was a more than happy reader with this outing.
