Silvermysteriet The Silver Mystery

The JerryMaya Detective Agency #27

Outside Valleby’s church there is an extensive excavation, for two weeks the archeologist Sofia Winge and her assistant Waldorf Eriksson have dug feverishly to see if there is something valuable hidden in the soil. On the last day of the excavation, they finally make a bargain: lots of silver coins! Probably from the Viking Age. The next day, traces of intruders are discovered. Nothing seems to have been stolen, but there are plenty of footprints in the moist soil. One in size 35, the same size as the priest’s, whose boots have just been stolen. There is a lot to dig into here for Jerry and Maya who know how to pry up unknown connections.
