The Beggar

The memorial service is moving. A young woman has died under tragic circumstances, unfathomable for everyone there. But in the back, a person sits and observers the mourners with a suspicious gaze. Someone who will do anything to stay hidden – even if the price is painfully high. 

At the same time, beggars around Stockholm are falling victim to what appears to be a psychopathic serial killer. The police are clueless, and the only person who can stop the murders must do everything to stay in hiding. 

Sofie Sarenbrant has written a contemporary thriller on the abuse of power and how it affects the most vulnerable people in our society. 

The Beggar is the fifth book in the popular crime series about police detective Emma Sköld. The series has sold over 5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 17 languages to date. 

Sofie Sarenbrant’s hugely successful crime series has been optioned by Breakable Films.
