Kjell Eriksson has made a huge splash around the globe with his series set in his native Sweden. Now Eriksson is back with a stunning mystery packed with surprises.

Police officer Ann Lindell is great at solving crimes, but she doesn't have as much luck in her personal life. When she meets journalist Anders Brant, Ann thinks her luck has turned around. When Anders disappears without a trace and a homeless man's body is found with Anders' phone number in his pocket, she must keep quiet about her connection to her former beau while she races to find Anders and clear his name.

Eriksson has been nominated for the Best Swedish Crime Novel five times, and Black Lies, Red Blood, the fifth book in his critically acclaimed and internationally-loved series will both shock and delight.

Praise For…

"Some writers you read for story, some you read for content or style. Kjell Eriksson is a writer best read for sensibility. This Swedish author's police procedurals are as dark as any in the Nordic noir tradition, but their deep vein of compassion transforms them into something more warmblooded than your average cop novel."—The New York Times Book Review

"Eriksson keeps the reader guessing, but his real strength is his ability to create descriptive details that bring even his minor characters alive."—Publishers Weekly

"[Eriksson] adds each piece of his complex murder puzzle to the picture with masterly control, and the heroine at the center of it all is compelling."—Kirkus Reviews
