Where were you the night Lina Stavred went missing? 'A terrific twisting roller-coaster of a thriller.' PETER JAMES'Intensely gripping.' CHRIS WHITAKERThe case was closed.
Lina Stavred went missing 20 years ago. A local boy confessed to her murder - but the body was never found.
The records were sealed.
Since then, the people of Adalen have avoided talking about that painful summer, preferring to leave the past untouched.
But we know you remember.
Now Lina's murderer has reappeared. This is detective Eira Sjoedin's chance to untangle years of well-kept secrets - but the truth is something Adalen would rather forget.
