The murderer had sliced open the dead man's torso and removed unspecified internal organs. The police admitted that some kind of religious symbol had been left at the scene of the crime, suggesting a ritual act of slaughter . . . When a serial killer strikes, a homeless woman finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, framed for horrifying murders that she didn't commit. On the run and living by her wits, can she avoid capture long enough to prove her innocence? Missing is a gripping race against the clock, and an examination of the hidden lives of those who choose to live on the outskirts of society.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Reminiscent of Ruth Rendell at her best. * * Herald * *
Alvtegen is a name to watch. * * Guardian * *
A compelling tale...full of false leads and bloody deeds. * * Sunday Herald * *
Alvtegen's chilling novels are head and shoulders above the rest of the Scandi crew. * * Daily Mail * *
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 genuine hit . . . a brilliant novel. -- Gefle Dagblad, Sweden
A very powerful novel. Skilfully, very intimately and realistically, Alvtegen describes an individual living outside the margins. -- Helsingborgs Dagblad
A gripping, multi-faceted thriller. It is not only about brutal murder, but also about something more profound - an individual's road to awareness about her own life and value . . . Alvtegen is already amongst the top Swedish crime and thriller authors. * * Folkbladet Joenkoeping * *
