A chilling true crime story of poisonous family secrets, love gone wrong, and a cold case that refused to stay buried... In late summer of 2012, millionaire landowner Göran Lundblad went missing from his farm in Sweden. When a search yielded nothing, and all physical evidence had seemingly disappeared, authorities had little to go on--except a disturbing phone call five weeks later from Göran's daughter Maria. She was sure that her sister, Sara, was somehow involved. At the heart of the alleged crime: Sara's greed, her father's land holdings, and his bitter feud with Sara's idler boyfriend. With no body, there was no crime--and the case went as cold and dark as the forests of southern Sweden. But not for Therese Tang. For two years, this case was her obsession. A hard-working ex-model, mother of three, and Missing People investigator, Therese was willing to put her own safety at risk in order to uncover the truth. What she found was a nest of depraved secrets, lies, and betrayal. All she had to do now, in her relentless and dangerous pursuit of justice, was prove that it led to murder.… (mais)

This is true crime in Sweden, a translation. In 2012, a man, Goran, disappears. His oldest daughter (in her 20s), Sara, is set to inherit her father’s forestry business. Goran was very well off (though stingy with what he spent). Goran had had a feud with his neighbour for a long time, and he had been upset with Sara for dating the neighbour’s son. It was longer than one would expect before Sara even reported her father missing. In the meantime, a woman named Therese had recently set up “Missing Persons”, a volunteer group who help police with searches.

The book gave a lot of info about police procedure -- what the police need to do and how they need to do it while investigating -- which I found quite interesting. I did think Therese took a few too many chances, though! Yikes! Overall, I found this really interesting and quite enjoyed reading it. ( )

This book is strangely addictive. It’s an odd style or odd translation (from Swedish) with an awful lot of detail/history about what appears to be unrelated facts. But it is really hard to put down. ( )

The good -- interesting enough to hold my attention; I finished it
The less good -- only interesting *enough* ...

I generally enjoy true-crime books. This one doesn't hit all the marks. Or rather, it hits too many of them, disjointed, out of sequence.

Backstory of all the players and situations, and there are a lot of players
Detailed police procedures, including verbatim transcripts of phone calls, excerpts from interviews
Forensic procedure details plus red-tape snags causing delays
Evocative prose about the actual crime (halfway into the book)

I don't expect (or want) to identify with the murderers. I do expect to forge some connection with the victim and the investigators. Unfortunately, the victim wasn't very interesting or sympathetic (albeit, he didn't deserve to be murdered). Never really cared too much about anyone else, either.

Problem *might* have been with the original being translated into English, but I think it's more the organization. I couldn't find a structure to how or why certain information was presented when it was. No pattern that made sense to me, and that left me rather disconnected from the whole thing. There you go - I finished the book, but wouldn't read it again. ( )

Follows the investigation into the missing Swedish millionaire farmer. A group called Missing Persons, led by Therese Tang lead to the confession of the murderer. ( )

Just a few pages in, i didn’t like the writing style. ( )
