Water Angels (UK, Canada, Australia)

PUBLISHED IN THE UK, CANADA, AUSTRALIA 23RD OF APRIL 2015.

A married couple is found dead in their jacuzzi. Their adopted five-year-old daughter has vanished. Inspector Malin Fors, the troubled but brilliant star of the Linköping police force, is put in charge of the case.

But this is a haunting mystery where the borders have been blurred: those between the living and the dead, between good and evil.

Malin is only too aware of her own tendencies towards obsession and addiction. As the investigation takes a darker turn, forcing Malin to confront her own demons, will she hold out long enough to find the killer - and the missing girl - before it's too late? 


"Kallentoft's novels always run at a high emotional temperature."

"Water Angels is Mons Kallentoft's sixth haunting, lyrical crime novel featuring Inspector Malin Fors, a 'lone wolf' who 'hunts people who need to be hunted'". 

Anna Creer, The Sydney Morning Herald


"Finally, honourable mentions for three reliable writers: Swedish master Mons Kallentoft, whose fey, atmospheric series featuring Inspector Malin Fors has a weighty new entry in Water Angels ..."
