The Secret

Businessman Petter Larsson is found murdered in his office. It is his girlfriend, Alex, who makes the gruesome discovery, and when the initial shock has subsided, she realises that it’s not only their relationship that has been a secret – there is much more that Petter has kept hidden from her. Alex works at the tax law firm where Petter was a client, and it appears that Alex’s quiet senior colleague Lydia, is the one who seems to know most about Petter’s secrets. Who was he in fact, the man she thought she knew? Lydia gives her no answers, and Alex is set on finding out the dark secret that Petter and Lydia shared. Alex’s investigation eventually leads her to a murder that was committed close to the Administrative Court of Appeal in Eksjö twenty years earlier – the same time and the same court where Lydia and Petter served as court clerks. Alex senses that she’s on the right track.

Anna Bågstam’s new crime novel The Secret treats the readers to page-turning action, shedding light on the power abuse taking place in the name of the law. This is the first book in the series about Alex Berglund and Lydia Levander, and provides us with insights into the ruthless world of courts and lawyers, unknown to most of us.
