Synopsis of Guiltless

The tiny Swedish island of Sandhamn has always been a haven for lawyer Nora Linde. With trouble brewing in her marriage, she finds its comforts more welcome than ever, even in the depths of winter.

That is, until her two young sons trip across a severed arm in the woods.

The boys’ gruesome discovery will once again connect Nora with her childhood friend Thomas Andreasson, now a local police detective.

When the limb is identified as belonging to a twenty-year-old woman who disappeared without a trace months earlier, what had been a missing persons case takes on a whole new urgency.

Nora and Thomas delve deeply into the woman’s final hours, each of them wrestling not only with the case but with the private demons it awakens in them.

As they do, they’ll find themselves drawn into the history of Sandhamn and the tensions that have been simmering just below the surface for more than a hundred years.

Review of Guiltless

Guiltless is one of the latest novelties of RBA, by an author I didn’t know, Viveca Sten, and which is published for the first time in Spanish. For this, they’ve chosen the third installment of a series that takes place on the Swedish island of Sandhamn, starring the policeman Thomas Andreasson and the jurist Nora Linden who are also childhood friends.

From the beginning we assume that the murder that’s being investigated has something to do with the story of something that occurred on the island in the early 20th century, given the parallel accounts that are presented to us.

Although the police investigation itself is not worth much, the storytelling is interesting and engaging, even with the cuts that involve the continuous jumps between the past and the current story. The suspense is kept until the end.

Recommended.
