But on idyllic Sandhamn Island off the coast of Sweden, there is a body in the net that washed onshore, and dashing police inspector Thomas Andreasson must team up with beautiful lawyer Nora Linde to piece together just how it got there. The chemistry between the two characters sparks quickly and simmers alongside their investigation. It’s no surprise that the Sandhamn Murders series was adapted to television and became a massive hit in Sweden. Gorgeous yet relatable, Nora embodies some of her creator’s best attributes. Author Viveca Sten is incredibly energetic, full of great ideas, and open to anything. She’s a warm and inviting soul with a mother’s intuition, a zest for life, a keen business sense, and—luckily for readers—a talent for killing the fictional residents of her beloved home away from home on Sandhamn.
The perfect rhythm that carries Still Waters steadily forward, propelled by suspense, reveals the beauty and danger of island life and leaves you yearning for the sequel, Closed Circles.
