Swedish art-student Greta leaves home, wanting to get as far away from Sweden as possible on her backpacking adventure. In Darwin she finds herself in the oppressively hot and horribly humid build-up to the The Wet, the monsoon rain season. The climate alone is enough to drive anyone mad. And if the mango-madness and crocodiles wasn’t enough, there’s a killer on the loose, out to get the most vulnerable, the most neglected. Senior Sergeant Patrick O’Boyle, going by the Aussie-humorous nickname Bluey because of his red hair, leads the investigation. He has help from his new colleague Jess, who has an indigenous background.
A character-driven, new, fresh, and horrifying crime series with a great buzz in Sweden already months before the publication.
The perfect way to visit Australia – with a Scandi-crime twist.
