Description
(Nominated for the 2007 Glass Key Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel) The arrival of an unexpected pigeon in Ruben Nilsson's dovecote is the harbinger of a terrifying outbreak of bird flu in a Gotland Island community in this thriller—the first of Swedish crime novelist Anna Jansson's Inspector Maria Wern books to be translated into English. Panic spreads among the inhabitants and the hunt for scapegoats begins as various quarantines are instituted—including the campground where Detective Inspector Maria Wern's son Emil is staying. Meanwhile nurse Sandra Hägg makes a gruesome discovery at the health clinic where she works—a discovery that will cost her life. Herself a clinical nurse as well as one of Sweden's leading crime novelists, Anna Jansson created the series of procedural thrillers starring Detective Inspector Maria Wern, set on the Baltic island of Gotland, which have been adapted for television.

"Stockholm Text, a Swedish e-book publisher, launches its trade paperback publishing program with this outstanding novel from Jansson.... The ending of this suspenseful blend of scientific thriller and whodunit packs a real wallop."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
