In the middle of a rainy Swedish summer, a little girl is abducted from a crowded train.
Despite hundreds of potential witnesses, no one noticed when the girl was taken. Her mother, left behind at the previous station, alerted the crew immediately. But as the train pulled into Stockholm Central Station, the girl was nowhere to be seen.
To Inspector Alex Recht of the Stockholm police, this looks like a classic custody row. But none of the evidence adds up, and young Investigative Analyst Fredrika Bergman is convinced the case is far more complex than her boss is prepared to admit.
So when the missing child is found dead in the far north of Sweden, with the word "UNWANTED" scribbled on her forehead, the rule book is finally thrown out of the window.
Now on the trail of a ruthless murderer with a terrifying agenda, will Alex and Fredrika manage to put aside their differences and work together to find the killer before it's too late?

I love my scandanavian crime books and I was really looking forward to listening to this new author (to me) but the woman who is narrating the book is extremely irritating therefore it is making it really difficult for me to listen to unfortunately.
A new narrator would be excellent
- Mrs Patricia DC Dickie
The story, although I'm only halfway thro' the book is really holding my attention but I'm finding the narrator's voice harsh, abrasive and unrealistic. This does occasionally happen but the voice usually softens, probably as the narrator settles down. This hasn't happened however. I will persist as the story is gripping but I won't have another of Kristina Ohlsson's books with this narrator.
Fast moving although evil, good escapism. Haven't finished it yet.
Harsh voice, abrasive, not realistic.
Do not want to be mean.
Uncomfortable at times but that's the nature of the genre.
