1 Mins read

With Blood Song, Johana Gustawsson not only succeeds in writing a riveting crime story with multiple twists, turns and surprises, but she also manages to skilfully weave an atrocious part of Spain’s history into the storyline.

When a family is brutally murdered in their home in Falkenberg, Sweden, their murders unleash a series of secrets which have been buried for decades going back to the Spanish Civil War. Blood Song sees the return of brilliant profiler Emily Roy and her partner in solving these crimes is, once again, crime writer Alexis Castells. Complicated characters, multiple locations and an unpredictable plot makes Blood Song a five-star read. Read our full review here.
