The Circus Princess

When successful businessman Fredrik Wallin is found brutally murdered in his luxurious villa outside Gothenburg, his fiancée Greta Leikler immediately becomes the prime suspect. It is too juicy a story to not cause a stir. The media follow the trial closely and Greta soon earns the nickname “The Circus Princess”. After what seems to be a fair judicial process, Greta is found guilty of murder even though she insists that she is innocent.

But who is Greta Leikler and how was it even possible that a wealthy millionaire like Fredrik Wallin and a vagabonding circus artist could meet and fall in love in the first place? Greta was working at Circus Junkert as a knife thrower and trapeze artist when Fredrik Wallin initially laid eyes on her. After years of conquering and seducing beautiful and interesting women, Greta fulfils his dream of a striking and mysterious woman. And she falls in love too, despite the age difference, divorces and rumours.

Two years after Leikler was put behind bars, police inspector Björn Carlsson receives the phone call he never expected: Greta Leikler has escaped during a prison transfer. Björn was convinced of Greta’s guilt from the start and has spent far too many hours pursuing her case and has no sympathy for her claims about being innocent. As her escape makes the headlines, Carlsson is determined to find Greta and win the respect of his new female boss.

Ever since she first entered the tent, Circus Junkert has been the only place on earth where Greta has been able to control her restlessness, anxiety and the darkness in her midst. And not only does she know how to handle knives, but she is also a talented trapeze artist. She has trained herself to fly higher, throw harder and do more flips. Always to be better, stronger, more and more resistant to the pain. The adrenaline rush became her thing. But now on the run, there is only one thing on her mind. Revenge.

The Circus Princess is the first part in Kamilla Oresvärd’s new nerve-racking suspense series about the erratic and wayward Greta Leikler.
