GUILT. ATONEMENT. REVENGE.

On a remote Swedish island, a little girl, Klara, grows up without a father. Now, twenty years later, she discovers a secret: a secret that powerful men will kill to keep hidden.

On the other side of the world, an old spy hides from his past. He used to be the best agent in the field. These days the only thing he lives for is swimming in the local pool.

Then, on Christmas eve, Klara is thrown into a terrifying chase across Europe. Only the Swimmer can save her. But time is running out...

Review:

'Guilt and atonement and revenge ... THE SWIMMER is an impressive, fast-paced thriller' Borås Tidning.

'A particularly powerful crime novel, with the narrative grasp that puts most other current practitioners to shame; what's more, Zander has a truly individual writing style which channels prose quite unlike that of any of his colleagues' The Good Book Guide.

'Well-written and incredibly thrilling ... avoids the predictability of the genre' Skånska Dagbladet.

'A terrific page-turner, rich with complex conflicts and a big, chillingly credible conspiracy' Chris Pavone, bestselling author of The Expats.

'At the end you look up and see the world differently' Lesley Thomson.

'A thrilling debut ... a novel with rare ambition with a crackling denouement and strong characters, it richly deserves its reputation' Daily Mail.

'Timely, relevant and exciting' Literary Review.

'Builds to exceptional tension' Independent.

'An absorbing chase thriller ... an excellent debut' The Times.

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Translation. 203 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A deep-cover CIA agent races across Europe to save the daughter he never knew in this electrifying debut thriller--an international sensation billed as Homeland meets Stieg Larsson that heralds the arrival of a new master sure to follow in the footsteps of Stieg Larsson, John Le Carre, and Graham Greene. In the end, you cannot hide who you are. Klara Walldeen was raised by her grandparents on a remote archipelago in the Baltic Sea, learning to fish and hunt and sail a boat through a storm. Now, as an EU Parliament aide in Brussels, she is learning how to navigate the treacherous currents of international politics: the lines between friend and enemy, truth and lies. But Klara has accidentally seen something she shouldn t have: a laptop containing information so sensitive that someone will kill to keep hidden. Suddenly, she is thrown into a terrifying chase across Europe, with no idea who is hunting her or why. Meanwhile, in Virginia, an old spy hides from his past. Once, he was a man of action, an operative so dedicated that he abandoned his infant daughter to keep his cover. Now, he is the only man who can save Klara . . . and she is the only woman who can allow him to lay old ghosts to rest. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780062337269
