SPRING TIDE by Cilla and Rolf Börjlind


Original Swedish title: SPRINGFLODEN

Before a stunned full moon a sadistic murder is committed at North Koster in the year of 1989. The victim is a young pregnant women. Her identity is not known. Chief Inspector Tom Stilton has a lot against him when he takes on the case. Not only is the victim unidentified, there seems to be no motive and the killer is untraceable. In the end, the killer walks. The case remains unsolved. Stilton’s life falls apart.

Twenty three years later a raid of killings of homeless persons shakes Stockholm. And the homeless are not only brutally beaten, someone is filming  the assults and displaying it on YouTube.
