It is the first thaw of spring and the body of a young woman surfaces in the River Thorne in the far north of Sweden. Rebecka Martinsson is working as a prosecutor in nearby Karuna. Her sleep has been disturbed by haunting visions of a shadowy, accusing figure. Could the body belong to the ghost in her dreams? And where is the dead girl's boyfriend?

In the book is very much felt the closeness of man and nature. The subject is a little bit boring, kind of "local", Sweden, so to speak. Excellent translation. A big plus for the translator. Almost at the end of the book there is a description of what is happening, that has written almost "tangible", you can feel the tension. Well crafted episode. I would not call the book a Mystery.

This is a powerful mystery that delivers well portrayed characters, a great plot, wonderful Swedish atmosphere, and just a hint of the supernatural.

A young woman is discovered under the ice in a frozen river. The police believe she drowned in a diving accident and her boyfriend's body must also be under the river ice. District prosecutor Rebecka Martinsson has an early morning vision of a young woman sitting on her bed who announces that the river was not where she died. Martinsson must convince the police and the pathologist to dig deeper into the death. Martinsson is an interesting character - a dog lover, a country woman, and a faithful friend.

This novel will cause you to see the murderer from a different perspective - all the previous events in his life that make him into the man he has become.

I had a difficult time putting this book down. I will definitely put Asa Larsson's earlier novels on my to-read list. The Savage Alter won the Swedish Crime Writer's Association prize for best debut novel and the sequel, The Blood Spilt, won Best Swedish Crime Novel of 2004.
