Nina Hoffman is the closest cop to the scene when gunshots are heard in a swanky Stockholm apartment building. She responds to find cop David Lindholm shot dead in his bed. Nina’s best friend, David’s wife, Julia, is incoherent, mumbling that a woman took her boy. Their small son is missing, and all evidence points to Julia. Even Nina can’t vouch for her friend’s innocence, but reporter Annika Bengtzon is on the case. The more she investigates, the clearer Julia’s innocence seems, but no one else believes Annika. Julia’s court-appointed lawyer is a dolt, and her case is pushed through the courts quickly; law enforcement wants revenge for David’s death. Annika doesn’t have the time she needs to prove her case, but she pushes on despite a crisis in her personal life (her husband has left her for another woman). The latest in Markland’s Annika Bengtzon series tells a complex but fascinating story full of misdirection and police obfuscation. Recommend Marklund to fans of Jussi Adler-Olsen and Camilla Lackberg. --Stacy Alesi

For me it has been a long way since reading my first Henning Mankel's book when I got hooked and became addicted to the nordic noir or scandinavian crime fiction or any other denomination you like.I have read all Mankel's books,all Jo Nesbo's ,Asa Larson's,Karen Alvteggen's;Yrsa Sigurdadotir's,Liza Marklund's,,HelenTursten, etc...etc...etc...
I am always looking for a new author,new at least for me ,and I am glad I decided to try Liza's books.I hope she will give a long life to Anika Bengtzon and a lot of pleasure to all of us ,her fans.
I enjoyed so much Lifetime that I ignored some problems I had for the first time reading a Kindle version - there were missing parts,some gaps when I turned the pages.
A good read within the genre of Scandinavian detective stories that are becoming increasingly popular.
