Hanna Duncker’s parental leave comes to an abrupt end when a man is found dead in the shallows in the south eastern part of Öland. It turns out to be a murder that deeply affects everyone at the Kalmar Police, and may have links to the threats that have plagued Hanna. The man who burned her house down and stabbed her while she was pregnant is still on the loose.

Hanna Duncker has lived a large part of her life as the murderer’s daughter, in the shadow of her father and her brother’s crimes. Will she finally find some peace with her beloved Isak and her daughter? The Breaker is the much anticipated final book in the bestselling Island Murders series.

“There is a lot to applaud in this series, and the author keeps the highest standard in the final part. […] The overarching theme of the series is about how difficult events and traumas from long ago can affect many people in the form of shame, guilt, and sorrow internally and/or threats, suspicion, and prejudices externally for a very long time. The author handles this theme with great skill that truly touches us readers. In addition to this, we get exciting plots, fantastic settings, strong and vivid characters, and a really well-written text. It will be exciting to follow the next step in this successful authorship.”
