The Liar

With summer just around the corner, Stockholm is more beautiful than ever. But the peace is about to be broken for Emma and her family. 

On an early morning, a teenage boy is found dead in a wooded area in the suburb Bromma. The body is badly beaten, and his valuables are missing. Tensions immediately run high in the area and suspicions are directed towards some young boys from a nearby residential area.  

Police detective Emma Sköld must solve the case before the killers strikes again, but she has a feeling that prejudice is getting in the way of finding the actual culprit. Is the boy’s friends and family trying to hide something from her? 

THE LIAR is the eighth book in the series about the fearless police detective Emma Sköld, and explores themes such as prejudice, exclusion, class differences and – above all – lies. Who can you really trust?  

The series about police detective Emma Sköld has sold over 5 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 15 languages to date.
