Synopsis: Sometimes reliving the past revives old demons . . .
In a Stockholm apartment, five-year-old Tilde watches from under the kitchen table as her mother is brutally kicked to death.
Meanwhile, in another part of town, psychotherapist Siri Bergman and her colleague Aina meet their new patients - a group of women, all of whom are victims of domestic violence.
From Kattis, who was beaten by her boyfriend and lives under the constant threat of his return, to Malin, the promising young athlete who was attacked by a man she met online, and from Sofi, the teenager abused by her stepfather, to Sirkka, an older woman who had a troubled marriage - each woman takes her turn to share her story in the safety of the sessions.
But as the group gets closer, it is not long before the dangers lurking in the women's lives outside invade the peace with shattering consequences. And somehow, the fate of five-year-old Tilde is intertwined with that of Siri and the other women, so that what started out as the search for peace will swiftly turn into a tense hunt for a murderer.
Review: Praise for "Some Kind of Peace"
"The intensity of Scandinavian crime fiction, its intimacy and human scale, is impressively on display in this novel by Swedish sisters Grebe and Traff. I often feel freezing when reading a thriller from the North, but from the very first page, this compelling fiction paints a warm and lively portrait of a Swedish summer, its beauty and lighthearted spirit, its customary celebrations -- so ironic a background for a dark, wrenching, and compelling story." --Barbara Peters, The Poisoned Pen, Scottsdale, AZ
"This book was phenomenal! I did not want to put it down. When I was forced to, I could not stop thinking about it. Atmospheric, intense, riveting and creepy! The writing is wonderful, the characters nicely developed. I loved that sisters wrote it. What interesting women they must be. I know I should rehash the plot, but I just want to rave about the book. I will insist my mystery book group reads it and recommend it whenever possible. My only regret is that I have read it and now have to wait until the next one comes out. Please tell them to hurry. There are not enough great mysteries out there. Lastly, one of my favorite author's is Tana French. These authors are right up there with her. Thank you so much for the opportunity to read it." --Carole Pozmante, B&N Bookseller
"Tense and chilling, this is a thriller for readers who also enjoyed Camilla Lackberg's "The Ice Princess." "--"Booklist"
"Sisters Camilla Grebe and Asa Traff dig deep into the cold climes of the human heart in this sharp, atmospheric thriller. First rate writing and unusually absorbing characters. Loved this book." "--"Perri O'Shaughnessy, bestselling author of "Unlucky in Law" and "Show No Fear"
""Some Kind of Peace" is a fast-moving psychological thriller whose plot unfolds from the authors' expert and sensitive consideration of character. Dr. Siri Bergman, haunted by her own loss, finds herself in the midst of danger, the threat co
"Swedish authors excel at novels of dark suspense, and sisters Grebe and Traff ("Some Kind of Peace", 2012) top off this fine psychological thriller with a final, chilling twist."
