"Meet Malin Fors. Thirty-four years old, blond, single, divorced with a teenaged daughter, Fors is the most driven superintendent who has ever worked at the police force in her small, isolated town. And the most talented. In her job, she is constantly moving through the borderland between life and death. Her path in life is violent and hazardous. With intuition, acumen, and courage, Malin navigates her colleagues through crime investigations so gruesome that they make the darkest of nightmares seem like fairy tales."--Barnesandnoble.com.
