Syndafloder The Flood

Fredrika Bergman #6

A man is found in front of his fireplace, a bullet hole in his chest. Strangely, he is wearing his daughter’s wedding ring on his pinkie finger. In another part of town, a funeral director is desperately searching for his brother. A brother who doesn’t seem to be missed by anyone else, and the funeral director fears might be gone forever. At the same time, a woman is struggling not to lose control over her life as her husband turns ever more dangerous. Time is running out, and it’s getting more and more difficult to protect herself and her children.

When Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht uncover a connection between the cases they’re pulled into a quickly escalating spiral of events where old sins return to haunt all involved. Someone is leaving messages for Alex, wanting to put everything to rights. But who is the anonymous writer behind the letters, and why does the perpetrator always seem to be one step ahead?

The Flood is an intensely thrilling crime fiction novel wherein that which was once forgotten is brought to light once more, with deadly consequences. The Flood is the sixth installment in the Fredrika Bergman series.


  • “Humor is a necessary ingredient in this dark genre and Ohlsson knows how to cook up a good story. /…/ If this is the final book about Fredrika Bergman then she has been given both a worthy and stormy ending.”

    Göteborgs-Posten, Sweden

  • “Unbearably thrilling /…/ the plot is a complex and intelligent labyrinth, and more than once you wonder how the author will be able to tie it all together. But of course she can and does - leaving the reader utterly done in!”

    Expressen, Sweden
