I rarely rate a book 4 stars and I rarely read a book in one sitting

This book hit both rarities.

Loner Sybilla is in the wrong place at the wrong time and becomes the primary suspect in a serial killing spree. Her backstory is told in alternate chapters. Well done.

This story keeps you guessing, great translation job. Recommend to Scandinavian fiction aficionados.

If you liked Steig Larrson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I highly recommend picking up this mystery thriller set in Sweden. Missing features a homeless woman wrongly accused of murder who must survive by her wits. This is a highly engrossing mystery and character study, as Sybilla struggles to come to terms with her abusive past and find the actual killer.
