Lone Girl (Ensamfjäril)
Gabriella Ullberg Westin
It's Christmas Eve and a fierce snowstorm paralyzes Hudiksvall. Henna Pedersen is home with her two small children, waiting for Santa Claus to come. When she opens the door after the traditional knocking she is at once sure that something is wrong. The person behind the mask is not the father. In the afternoon, the police gets an alarm about Henna Pedersen, married to the best Swedish football player, she has been found murdered in the home.
The homecoming police Johan Rokka gets the investigation on his table. Rokka has been away from Hudiksvall for a couple of years, working in Stockholm. He had left his hometown in grief and despair after his girlfriend disappeared, blaming himself for not following her home properly the night she disappeared. He has a criminal background, kept as a well hidden secret.
After another cold-blooded murder occurs Johan Rokka senses that his job and past inevitably will intertwine. The deeper he dives into the disaster, the more confident he gets on two things; that Hanna Pedersen’s husband, the famous football player is hiding something - and secondly, he never really knew his wife.
Lone Girl is the first book in the Hudiksvall series with Johan Rokka.
