Time is limited, the distance measurable, but the number of suspects and potential victims are infinite …
So far Stockholm Marathon has been spared from deaths among its runners. But when the gun goes off for the 35th edition of the race everything is turned upside down. It is the 4th of July, but colder than on Christmas Eve. Right past the starting point of the marathon a man falls down unconscious and his life cannot be saved. Detective inspector Emma Sköld has her day off, but is at the race to cheer for her sister. When the lifeless body of a woman is found by the water, she is right at the scene. It soon becomes apparent that foul play was involved and that the woman has been murdered. Is there a killer among the runners? And if so, when will the next victim turn up?

Sofie Sarenbrant's best book so far.
