THE INVISIBLE MAN FROM SALEM (Den osynlige mannen fran Salem)  
Feb. 28, 2014
Author:  Christoffer Carlsson
Category:  Fiction: Mystery/Crime
Description:  *** Winner of the Best Crime Novel of the Year by the Swedish Crime Academy 2013
*** Nominated to the Glass Key Award 2014

"Despite his young age, Carlsson has accomplished a page-turner that is both well-written and cleverly put together. There is a little of Stieg Larsson, Jens Lapidus, and Jo Nesbö, but most of all of Carlsson himself, and when the next book comes out, he has gotten himself at least one reader." – bestselling author Leif GW Persson

In the final days of summer in 2013 a young woman is shot dead in her apartment. Three floors above, the blue lights of the police cars awaken the young police officer Leo Junker. Leo works in the Internal Affairs division as the lowliest form of officer, a spy of his own kind. A rat. Leo is even lower, however, having been suspended after he committed a terrible mistake. In what has become known as the "Gotland Affair", a police officer was accidentally killed, and Leo was found holding the offending weapon. In the backstreets, shadowed alleyways and decaying suburbs of Stockholm ́s underground, the search for the young woman ́s killer begins.
