Anki Edvinsson

A boy jumps off a bridge. A woman is found murdered in her home. A teenage girl disappears without a trace. Three tragic incidents seemingly without any connections. But Charlotte von Klint and Per Berg at the Umeå police start connecting the pieces. The common denominator is narcotics.

While the winter keeps Umeå in a firm grip and the snow piles are growing, Per and Charlotte are in a race against time. They need to find out who is responsible for the tragedies that continue to strike the town, and they need to find the missing girl at any cost – before it’s too late.

Snow Angel is a thrilling, fast-paced, and immersive crime novel. The police officers Charlotte von Klint and Per Berg are in many ways each other’s opposites, but together they make an unstoppable team.

“Suspense as strong as the cold winter in Norrland. Snow Angel makes the reviewer Inger Melin wake up before the alarm clock to finish reading.
Suicide, bathtub murder and a missing teenager. A common danger lies underneath. […] Anki Edvinsson writes easily and convincingly, she is a journalist, has studied criminology and has a brother and father within the police. She puts her finger on the worst nightmare for anyone who has a teenager: today’s drug culture. Edvinsson is great at portraying teenagers’ everyday stress, and the partying where one simple pill can be the gateway to helplessness and disaster. And parents’ anxiety about not being able to protect their children. When a teenage girl disappears, the reader sits breathless, it is intense and a sinfully thrilling feeling of presence. It also gives an eerie picture of the present where neither wealth nor service weapons protect from the threat of well-organized criminal syndicates.”

Snow Angel is a story that quickly draws me in by dramatic events that makes me both shiver and aches my heart. It’s not only the crimes and the plot that holds me in a firm grip, but also how every person is portrayed, Edvinsson makes me feel strongly about the characters introduced to me in her novel. The police duo Charlotte and Per complements each other and their personal stories are skillfully interwoven into the story. When will I have Anki Edvinsson’s next novel in my hand???”
