I cirkelns mitt Within the Circle
The NOVA series #1
When a division manager in the steel industry is found dead in a field outside of Uppsala in his burning BMW, it is quickly dismissed as an accident. But when another “accident” occurs, it becomes clear for criminal inspector Eva Nyman that this is part of something greater, something which presumably has something to do with the ongoing climate debate.
Because she receives a letter, written on an old typewriter – a letter that does not only describe the two events but predicts an upcoming, and much worse, attack.
The clues lead to Nyman’s past, to a trauma she thought she had safely put behind her.
Now, before the next attack is executed, she must activate her special forces team NOVA to find out who’s behind it all.
Who is hiding within the circle.
Within the Circle is the first installment in Arne Dahl’s highly anticipated NOVA series.
