Islossning Meltdown

Berger & Blom #5

A wintery spring has just given way to early summer. Sam Berger, Molly Blom and Deer, their contact at the police office, who is just learning how to walk again after the attack that brutally changed her life, sense an ambiguous connection between the bodies that are being found one by one in the thawing archipelago. Someone is going to murder again. Could Sam, Molly and Deer intervene, or is the truth far worse than what they could ever imagine?

Meltdown is the stand-alone fifth installment in the lauded Berger & Blom series. It’s a raging thriller coming together in a ghastly crescendo masterfully orchestrated as only Arne Dahl knows how.


  • “World-class suspense. /…/ Arne Dahl has always been highly ranked in the field of original and innovative components with incredible and gruesome elements, both in the form of events and characters, but this time [Dahl] has outdone himself with an outstanding personal best.”

  • “Arne Dahl has a talent for interlacing multiple plot threads to an exciting whole. /…/ [Dahl] repeats this feat with the fifth Berger & Blom novel, and he is also pulling some seriously long threads. As usual, he pulls it off masterfully.”
