The Good Samaritan (Den barmhärtige samariten)

Cilla & Rolf Börjlind

He who says he wants to help people does not have to want the best for the world.

Olivia Rönning has disappeared. Quite quickly, her colleague at the National Operation Unit, Lisa Hedqvist, realizes that she must have been taken away against her will.

When Tom Stilton hears what has happened, he decides to leave his self chosen corona quarantine out in the archipelago. Together, Lisa and Tom follow the tracks to a solitary cabin. But when they get there, the house is already on full fire, and later a charred female body is found in the remains of the house. Is it Olivia? Mette Olsäter, their retired boss, has been appointed national safety coordinator for the deliveries of covid vaccine. Obviously someone is willing to do anything to sabotage the transports.

The Good Samaritan is the seventh book in the best-selling crime series about Olivia Rönning and Tom Stilton.

“The Börjlind’s know their stuff. They belong to the top laywer of crime writers in the country. Once again, it’s time for stretch reading.”
Mariestads Tidning /SWE

“The much-awaited sixth installment about Rönning and Stilton delivers top quality excitement.”
5 out of 5.

”The book is just as page turning and suspensful as the previous. And just as contemporary. I can really recommend this book.”
Bokrecension blogspot / SWE

”As always, the cliffhanger in the latest book has a big bearing on the next book. Börjlinds are skilled at building up a tension that makes you just want to read more and more. The Good Samaritan is also frighteningly contemporary with all that covid and vaccine means with anti-waxers and the desire to sow a seed of doubt in the common man. Skilfully written and no details left to chance.”
