Synopsis of Until Thy Wrath Be Past
In the first thaw of spring the body of a young woman surfaces in the River Thorne.
Rebecka Martinsson is working as a prosecutor in nearby Kiruna. Her sleep has been disturbed by haunting visions of a shadowy, accusing figure. Could the body belong to the ghost in her dreams?
Joining forces once again with Police Inspector Anna-Maria Mella, Martinsson is drawn into an investigation that focuses on old rumours about the disappearance of a plane carrying supplies for the Wehrmacht in 1943.
Shame and secrecy shroud the locals’ memories of the war, with Sweden’s early collaboration with the Germans still a raw wound.
And on the windswept shore of a frozen lake lurks a killer who will kill again to keep the past buried for ever beneath half a century’s silent ice and snow.

Review of Until Thy Wrath Be Past
Fourth in the series starring Rebecka Martinsson.
Although we know who the bad guys are practically from the beginning, the plot is interesting, the suspense is maintained, it’s well written and well resolved.
The protagonist’s motives for intervening are fully justified this time, as she is now the prosecutor where the events take place.
Good and recommended. I don’t know how long it’s going to take to translate it into Spanish.
