The idyllic summertime in Stockholm is shaken up by a series of brutal murders. The experienced and sometimes unconventional psychologist Vera Lilja is helping out her good friend at the police, Kenneth Karlsson, to find the killer. In hope of doing so before the next attack.

On a personal level Vera is trying to mend things between herself and her lover Alexios, while also trying to reconnect with her long lost son Patrik whom she abandoned when he was only a few months old.

While her life is being flipped upside down the investigation is on a standstill and there is no sign of a solution of comfort.

Airborne is a suspenseful crime novel about revenge, love and forgiveness. It’s the second part in the series about Vera Lilja and the first book Fire Sisters.
