Midsummer's Eve on Sandhamn annually attracts all kinds of visitors who celebrate the longest day of the year by drinking and carousing. The event is endured by inhabitants and police.
Nora Linde's life is complicated when her new boyfriend's daughter doesn't come home after a night of celebrating. In addition to that worry, she is asked to take in two teenage girls who were found lost and confused after a night of drinking.
When the body of the young man is discovered, Thomas Andreasson and his partner Margit are called in to investigate.
I've enjoyed all of Viveca Sten's previous books, and although this one is not bad, for some reason I wasn't as engaged with the plot.
Both Nora and Thomas are interesting, intelligent, and compassionate characters, and I was happy to see a little take-down of the mother-in-law and to see ex-husband Henrik behave reasonably.
Read in July; blog review scheduled for Aug. 20.
