Publisher's Summary

On a hot July morning on Sweden's idyllic vacation island of Sandhamn, a man takes his dog for a walk and makes a gruesome discovery: a body, tangled in fishing net, has washed ashore.
Police detective Thomas Andreasson is the first to arrive on the scene. Before long, he has identified the deceased as Krister Berggren, a bachelor from the mainland who has been missing for months. All signs point to an accident - until another brutalized corpse is found at the local bed-and-breakfast. But this time it is Berggren's cousin, whom Thomas interviewed in Stockholm just days before.
As the island's residents reel from the news, Thomas turns to his childhood friend, local lawyer Nora Linde. Together, they attempt to unravel the riddles left behind by these two mysterious outsiders - while trying to make sense of the difficult twists their own lives have taken since the shared summer days of their youth.

"Thomas said"

Good but some annoyances such as repetition of the word archipelago and what sounded like cut and pasted "Thomas said" so many times.

A good listen.

I enjoyed listening to this book. The setting on the island of Sandhamn is beautifully described and sounds tranquil, but it's not long before a body is washed up on the shore and in step the police detectives from Stockholm.
I liked getting to know the characters and their back stories. Hopefully more to follow.
The story is a little predictable but flows well and keeps you interested - it's definitely worth a listen. It would be good to hear more from this author to see how the characters and their relationships develop.
