Review:

Reminiscent of Ruth Rendell at her best. --Herald

Alvtegen is a name to watch. --The Guardian

A genuine hit . . . a brilliant novel. --Gefle Dagblad, Sweden

From the Back Cover:

Can murder and deliverance go hand in hand? Sibylla lives on the streets. She is a nobody. Then she finds herself thrust into the news headlines after a man who bought her dinner winds up dead. When another body is found, Sibylla becomes the prime suspect, and she is forced on the run from crimes she didn’t commit. Missing is an unputdownable and unnerving thriller. More than a murder-hunt, it is also the story of one innocent woman’s journey to salvation. ‘Alvtegen powerfully evokes Sibylla’s sense of persecution and conveys what it means to live as an outsider, without ever compromising this compulsive thriller.’ Metro ‘A compelling tale . . . full of false leads and bloody deeds.’ Sunday Herald ‘Alvtegen keeps up a cracking pace.’ Uncut Also available [thumbnails Betrayal and Shame] Cover design by Tim Byrne www.canongate.net [barcode] £6.99 ISBN 978 1 84195 938 2

Book Description Felony Mayhem, United States, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 193 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Karin Alvtegen -- without any training or thought of becoming a novelist -- resolved to write her way out of some family tradedies: The result was her first novel, Guilt (Skuld), which was published in Sweden in 1998, to rave reviews. This was followed in 2000 by Missing (Saknad), which won Scandinavia s prestigious Glass Key award for Best Crime Novel of the Year, and went on to win an award for bestselling Scandinavian paperback. Her third novel, Betrayal (Svek) -- coming next year from Felony Mayhem -- was shortlisted for the Glass Key award, and also for the Swedish Crime Writers Academy award for Best Swedish Crime Novel of the year. And Swedish reviewers have called Alvtegen s most recent novel, Shame (Skam) (also to come from Felony Mayhem) her finest novel to date -- the work, in the words of one critic, of a modern-day Strindberg. Karin Alvtegen is the great-niece of Astrid Lundgren, author of the ever-popular Pippi Longstocking books. Bookseller Inventory # ANB9781933397863
