Dark Pines (2017)
(Tuva Moodyson Mystery, book 1)
"Terrific thriller, vivid imagery and characters. My heart was pounding at the end really great read!"
The Boy At the Door (2018)
"Scandi Noir at its best...Atmospheric and beautifully written...combines complex and believable characters with a heart-breaking and head-spinning plot."
The Boss (2019)
(Bad Blood , book 1)
"A stunning debut . . . an explosive ending which will leave readers both satisfied and wanting more."
Someone We Know (2019)
"Exactly what I love in a book: a small cast, an intricate plot worthy of Agatha Christie, with characters who stay in my mind long after the novel has finished. As for her writing it was just perfect, as though Anne Tyler had written a thriller. No greater compliment can be given!"
The Hit List (2020)
"A powerful novel about some of the most terrifying crimes that can be committed and I raced through it at break-neck speed."
