Kristina Ohlsson barges into the already overcrowded world of Scandinavian detective fiction with her debut novel, UNWANTED, and it turns out she’s more than welcome. Her hardcore police procedural featuring uncompromising and prickly investigative analyst Fredrika Bergman and the team of Stockholm police detectives is suitably gritty, dynamic and enthralling from page one to the end.
On a train ride from Gothenburg to Stockholm, a woman gets off at a station, leaving her little girl on the train. She’ll only be gone a moment. But she is delayed, misses the train, and is forced to call ahead to make sure her child will be okay.
