Eighteen-year-old Kirsty Wilson can't believe her luck when she lands a room in a luxury Glasgow flat owned by the beautiful Eva Magnusson, a wealthy fellow student from Stockholm. But her initial delight turns to terror when Kirsty finds the Swedish girl lying dead in their home and their male flatmate accused of her murder. Kirsty refuses to accept that he is guilty and, inspired by family friend Detective Superintendent Lorimer, sets out to clear his name. Meanwhile, Lorimer calls on his trusted colleague, psychologist Solly Brightman, to help unravel the truth behind the enigmatic Eva's life and death. But it is not long until another woman, bearing a marked resemblance to Eva, is brutally murdered in Glasgow. Horrified, Lorimer and his team realise that Kirsty could be right. Is it possible that Glasgow's finest detective has put the wrong man behind bars? And is there a cold-blooded killer out there orchestrating the death of their next innocent victim? In this absolutely gripping read, Alex Gray sends her dynamic Scottish detective from the gritty heart of Glasgow to the snowy streets of Stockholm in his toughest case yet.

Reviews

Gray teases her readers unmercifully as the tension rises and the body count and list of suspects slowly, but surely, grows. Scottish Daily Express on THE SWEDISH GIRL Gray's superb Lorimer series hits double digits with this tenth instalment and continues to go from strength to strength. With every outing Lorimer's world widens, the secondary characters adding extra depth and authenticity, yet never detracting from the cool authority of the man who is ultimately in charge. The dialogue rings true, the procedures are by the book, and with twists that leave questions until the pulse-racing conclusion. The story of this Swedish girl shows that this Scottish author is at the top of her game. Daily Record on THE SWEDISH GIRL Gray is the new master of Scottish crime writing. Scottish Daily Express Brings Glasgow to life in the same way Ian Rankin evokes Edinburgh. Daily Mail Alex Gray describes her characters with sensitivity and the investigations in careful detail Literary Review
