It is Autumn in Linköping and the heavens have opened, but not even these biblical rains can wash away the blood of crimes past and present.

Then the brutally-stabbed body of self-made Internet billionaire Jerry Petersson is discovered floating facedown in the moat surrounding his home, the imposing Skogså Castle.

Malin Fors, the brilliant but flawed star of the Linköping police force, is already struggling to keep her life together following the recent murder attempt on her teenage daughter, Tove. Now, as the Petersson case forces Malin to delve deep into Linköping’s history and her own family’s past, the secrets she uncovers threaten to drown her, too . . .

AUTUMN KILLING is the third book in the internationally bestselling Malin Fors series of Swedish crime novels featuring a brilliant and complex heroine to rival Sarah Lund of The Killing and Saga Norén of The Bridge.

What's Inside

My current favourite among the Scandinavian crime writers is another Swede, Mons Kallentoft. So far, three of his Malin Fors books have been translated into English: Midwinter Sacrifice, Summertime Death and Autumn Killing. I loved them all, particularly for the way Kallentoft gives a voice to his victims.

Praise for Mons Kallentoft's MALIN FORS series
. . .
Kallentoft's books have been called beautiful, exquisite and original. I can see why.
<i>Literary Review</i>
He has a completely unique style, an exquisite narrative that you drink in with pleasure . . . I'm convinced: a crime novel doesn't get much more beautiful than this
Kristian Stadsbladet
Don't bother with Stieg Larsson, Kallentoft is better
Magnus Utvik, Sweden's leading critic
One of the best-realised female heroines I've read by a male writer
The highest suspense
Camilla Lackberg, international bestselling author of <i>The Stonecutter</i>
The strengths of this complex and excellent novel include realistic dialogue, thorough characterisation and concern for social issues
<i>New Zealand Listener</i>
It is Kallentoft's characterisation and distinctive, often poetic style which make his crime-writing more memorable than most . . . It is compelling reading. The atmosphere of oppressive heat creates the sense of a hell on earth, where evil thrives. It is a powerful and disturbing vision.
<i>Canberra Times</i>
'Meditative. Dark. Really, really cold . . . This is a worthy successor to Larsson's <i>Millennium</i> trilogy . . . This first installment in Kallentoft's crime series is a splendid representative of the Swedish crime novel, in all its elegance and eeriness.'
