From the Editor

The opening scene of Still Waters swept me away like a swift tide, leaving me gasping as an unsuspecting dog walker stumbles upon a corpse on the beach. As kids, my sister and I would watch the Long Island Sound through our binoculars for hours at a time, hoping to spot treasures or (with breathless anticipation) something more macabre. In fact, we once called the police because we were certain we saw a body in a tangle of rope and buoys. Our excitement mounted as the coast guard ship came speeding in, and our cheeks flushed with embarrassment when the police called back to let us know there was nothing there but seaweed.

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.

- Gabriella Page-Fort, Editor

About the Author

Swedish writer Viveca Sten has sold almost four million copies of her enormously popular Sandhamn Murders series. In 2014, her seventh novel, the hugely successful I maktens skugga (In the Shadow of Power), was published in Sweden and cemented her place as one of the country’s most popular authors. Her Sandhamn Murders novels continue to top the bestseller charts and have been made into a successful Swedish-language TV miniseries, which has been broadcast around the world to thirty million viewers. Sten lives in Stockholm with her husband and three children, but she prefers to spend her time visiting Sandhamn to write and vacation with her family.

Marlaine Delargy is based in Shropshire in the United Kingdom. She studied Swedish and German at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, and taught German in comprehensive schools for almost twenty years. She has translated novels by authors including Åsa Larsson, Kristina Ohlsson, Helene Tursten, John Ajvide Lindqvist, Therese Bohman, Ninni Holmqvist, and Johan Theorin, with whom she won the Crime Writers’ Association International Dagger for The Darkest Room in 2010.
