Publisher's Summary

Trying to process a life crisis Gothenburg policeman, Dennis Wilhelmson, decides to take a trip to his quiet childhood island, Smögen.

Dennis is looking forward to enjoying some peaceful days at the small town island, where nothing really ever happens... or so he thought.

Everything changes when the body of a young man is found in the habour basin and an old friend of his is missing without a trace.

Dennis is now involuntarily thrown in to the biggest murder investigation the area has ever seen.

Enter Sandra Haraldsson, a young ambitious and very straight forward police aspirant.

This was definitely not the calm and harmonious summer Dennis had been planning for himself to recover. But can Sandra heal his heart while they take on the investigation?

The Man on the Beach is the first part in the series "The Smögen Murders".

Great if you love Scandi Noir!

I absolutely love everything Scandi Noir. Borgen, The Bridge, The Killing - I'm here for it!

Anna Ihren is a Swedish author that I hadn't heard of and I have to say that I really liked this slightly cosier take on Scandi Noir. The setting of Smögen is described so beautifully and I now really want to visit (despite the people dying). Can't wait for more books in this series!

The narrator did a great job of bringing the story to life and I felt like all the Swedish words and names were handled in a really nice and non-distracting way.
