Sam Berger är misstänkt för ett mord han inte har begått, och partnern Molly Blom ligger i koma.

Berger flyr till skärgården och väntar på direktiv från Säpos högste chef. Ett terrordåd hotar Stockholm och en jagad mördare – som nu har kidnappat en flicka – kan gå fri. Är Berger lösningen eller en del av problemet?

Arne Dahl visar på nytt sitt mästerskap med Mittvatten, en kriminalroman av internationellt snitt, i samma anda som succéromanerna Utmarker och Inland.


“There’s no one in Nordic crime right now who’s better than Arne Dahl. He takes the great British tradition of treason thrillers, combines it with American police and women’s crime literature, and decorates it with more or less explicit literary references from history, as was done during the golden age of the genre; but he also adds a fully updated social-political reality as is the custom in Nordic noir. /…/ This conclusion was a refreshing one, but do not let it end here.”
Jyllands-Posten, Denmark

“An utter bullseye.”
