The Beach is the first book about former police officer Lina Lantz, with two stand-alone sequels to follow.
It's 1988 and 16-year-old Peter and Erik are in the midst of a long summer break in the small coastal town of Sandinge, in the south of Sweden. Suddenly Peter disappears. All that is left behind is clothes with blood stains.
The case eventually gets cold.
Lina Lantz has never fit in, anywhere. Once a talented police investigator, she has left everything after a kidnapping gone wrong.
She heads to her 92-year-old grandfather in Sandinge, with a suitcase full of books and her two cats.
When a boy is found dead on her beach, she reluctantly gets pulled into the investigation. Her discoveries soon lead her to that summer of 1988, when Peter vanished.
THE BEACH/ STRANDEN is Anna Breitholtz debut novel and she's contracted by BOKFABRIKEN for publishing rights in Sweden.
