Mari Jungstedt - Den ​dubbla tystnaden
Försommaren ​blomstrar och de goda vännerna från det välmående villaområdet i Visby utkant reser iväg på sin traditionella semestertripp. I vardagen delar de allt: barnpassning, trädgårdsskötsel, middagar, fester och motionspass. Vänskapen är gränslös och banden dem emellan tycks orubbliga efter åratal av gemenskap. Årets utfärd går till Fårö där Bergmanveckan stundar och sedan vidare mot Stora Karlsö där grissleungarna lyfter i tusental från de branta kalkstensklipporna. Men något går väldigt snett under resan - en kvinna försvinner under en cykeltur i Bergmanlandet kring Hammars, en åldrad man flyter i land i den lettiska staden Ventspils på andra sidan Östersjön. Komissarie Anders Knutas med kollegan Karin Jacobsson får ett svårgripbart fall att tag i som för dem långt bortom gängse normer. Mari Jungstedts sjunde roman borrar djupt i de mörkaste av hemligheter som även närstående döljer för varandra. DEN DUBBLA TYSTNADEN är en pylshöjande thriller som stärker Jungstedts position som en av Sveriges mest lästa författare. Hennes böcker har sålts i över en miljon exemplar bara i Sverige.

Mari Jungstedt - The ​Killer's Art
It ​is a cold wintry morning in the picturesque port town of Visby when art dealer Egon Wallin's battered and naked body is found hanging from a gate in the town's old city walls. His was a very public death, but who killed him and why? As Inspector Knutas begins his investigation, Egon's secrets quickly begin to come to the surface. He died on the eve of leaving his wife. Is his death a spurned lover's revenge? And when a painting by a new cause-célèbre artist is stolen from his gallery, more questions are raised.Another theft and another death, this time in Stockholm, widens the search for the killer. As the police piece together the clues, one scandal is followed by another and Inspector Knutas will discover that beneath the patina of glamour, the high-society world of art collecting hides many secrets - some worth killing for.

Mari Jungstedt - Unseen
The ​island of Gotland is in the middle of a busy tourist season and getting ready for Midsummer, the 4th of July of Swedish holidays, when a young woman and her dog are found brutally murdered. The dog has been beheaded and is missing a paw; the woman is naked, covered in gruesome axe wounds, and her panties have been stuffed in her mouth. What looks like a crime committed by the victim's jealous husband keeps the local police force on their toes. Then a second victim is found. A serial killer terrorizes tourists and locals alike, and Inspector Anders Knutas has to face additional pressure from the media and local politicians who are worried about bad PR for the island. In his quest for the murderer, he is aided by Johan Berg, an intrepid young journalist from Stockholm who has been sent to cover the incidents and who gets involved with Emma, one of the first victim's close friends. Three women die before Knutas and Berg, each approaching the case in their own way, finally close in on the killer, who has always, until now, been the one unseen by everybody.

Mari Jungstedt - The ​Inner Circle
The ​Inner Circle opens with an international group of young archeology students sweating on a dig on the island of Gotland, uncovering a Viking fortification dating back over a millennium. They are a fun-loving lot, partying together every night, but the good vibe turns to horror when one of them, twenty-one-year-old Martina Flochten, disappears. Her body is found a short while later, naked, bled out, and hanging from a tree. Her injuries indicate that she is the victim of a ritual killing. Inspector Anders Knutas investigates Martina’s acquaintances. Who was the mysterious lover she was supposed to have been meeting in secret and whom none of her fellow archaeologists have actually seen? What do the marks on Martina’s body signify? Is there possibly a connection between Martina’s death and the recent and unsolved brutal beheading of a Gotland pony? The pony was also bled out, and its head was missing---until it appears mounted on a stick outside the next victim’s house. Inspector Knutas and his team work feverishly to catch the killer, but before long there are more victims, all of whom have been killed and mutilated the same way.

Mari Jungstedt - Unspoken
The ​dead man was a drunk; a regular on the park benches of Gotland's city centre. He had been celebrating winning 80,000 Krona at the races. His body is discovered by one of his drinking buddies: he is drenched in blood and someone or something has left a hole the size of a fist in the back of his head. It's winter on the island of Gotland. The tourists have returned home. The tree branches are bare, the sky is sleet grey and the days are getting shorter and darker. Winter is a quiet time for Chief Inspector Anders Knutas and Detective Karin Jacobsson; the tourists tend to take the violent crimes with them back to the mainland. To keep their lives simple, they are tempted to assume that the victim died as a result of a drunken brawl over money. But all of the clues point to something far more sinister. Then 14-year old Fanny Jansson, a volunteer at the local stables, vanishes. At first Knutas and Jacobsson find it hard to believe that the two cases are linked: one is a violent murder, the other, the disappearance of a lonely and isolated child who has probably run away. Painstakingly, they work the clues, assisted by ambitious TV reporter Johan Berg. But what none of them realise is that truth is much closer to home than they'd ever imagine.

Mari Jungstedt - The ​Dead of Summer
North ​of Gotland, Gotska Sandön is the most isolated island in the Baltic Sea, and the perfect setting for a crime story that plays on the hair-raising feeling that even when you are alone in an isolated spot, someone is watching you. The fifth installment in the Anders Knutas series begins with the murder of a father of small children, and is the first major case for assistant commissioner Karin Jacobsson to solve while Anders Knutas is on vacation. Reporter Johan Berg follows the investigation along with the police team, while at the same time doing everything in his power to win back his love, Emma Winarve.

Mari Jungstedt - The ​Double Silence

From the best-selling Swedish crime writer comes a chilling story about the worst of our best-kept secrets._ A man is pushed from a cliff; a woman is missing after a bike ride; an elderly man is washed ashore. The friends are closer than most – too close, some might say. Every year they leave their cosy suburban neighbourhood to go on holiday together to a remote Swedish island. But this year, their holiday won’t go as expected. A terrible series of tragedies will unfold, seemingly random, all somehow connected. Detective Superintendent Anders Knutas will have to look into the friends’ tangled pasts to find the truth. What malevolent force has followed them to the island? Or was it amongst them all along? Even the closest friends don’t share everything...

Mari Jungstedt - Észrevétlen
Svédország ​legnagyobb szigete, Gotland, hangulatos vidék: a virágzó mákföldek ringanak a szélben, a távolban meg-megcsillan a tenger. De az idilli képet véres gyilkosság zavarja meg. Nem is egy. A helyi rendőrség rangidősére, a csendes és határozott Knutas főfelügyelőre, álmatlan éjszakák várnak. Az áldozatok múltjának mélyén kutakodva olyan eseményekre bukkannak, amelyekre senki sem számított. Az egyre kilátástalanabbnak tűnő nyomozás közben a nyugodt főfelügyelőnek meg kell küzdenie kollégái türelmetlenségével, a sajtóval, a magánnyal és saját lelkiismeretével is. Hiába próbál objektív és kívülálló maradni, munkája szép lassan átszivárog a mindennapokba, a magánélet legvédettebb zugaiba is. S közben a nyomás napról napra nő. Mari Jungstedt világszerte több millió eladott példánnyal az egyik legnépszerűbb svéd írónő, aki nőként nem csak nőkhöz szól. Olvasmányos, izgalmas regényével Henning Mankell, Hkan Nesser, Camilla Läckberg és Karin Fossum nyomdokaiba lép. Camilla Läckberg: Emma és Johan, a könyvbeli pár olyan karakterek, akiket igazán lehet szeretni. A festői gotlandi környezettel és a nagyszerű cselekménnyel együtt máris kész a tökéletes recept egy jó könyvhöz. (The Guardian)
