Meanwhile, journalist Annika Bengtzon is approached by a woman wanting her story published in the Evening Post.

I read my first Liza Marklund book last year and quite enjoyed it.
Reporter Annika Bengtson returns in Vanished. I hadn't read the books in between and found Annika in a different state of mind and place. She's at the newspaper, but is a copy editor, not out in the field. She lives in a stark apartment in a condemned building, simply existing, trying to deal with numerous tragedies in her personal life. But while editing a story on a recent double murder on the waterfront one night, a random call is routed to her desk and she finds herself immediately intrigued. Rebecka claims to be able to erase a person's past and set them up with a new identity and life. Annika's boss gives her the go ahead to pursue the story - he's happy to see her excited about something again. But The Paradise Foundation may not be everything Rebeckah claims. And when she discovers that the waterfront murders and the Foundation may have a connection, Annika is drawn in...
Another gripping story in the Annika Bengstrom series. Set in Stockholm they give a glimpse not into only Swedish life but also how a newspaper there operates. The fourth book, "The Bomber" was a hit here but I thought the first two were even better. I'm going on to the third, "Primetime" next.
Annika, a young newspaper reporter, deals with resentment from many of the permanent staff at the newspaper as the result of a shocking incident in the first book, "Studio 69", while she tracks down a mysterious organization that seems too good to be true. In the process she is involved with the Yugoslavian Mafia and the dangerous Ratko. A gripping story all the way.
Love the descriptions of Stockholm and Vaxholm; takes me back to my time in Sweden. Well written and fast-paced. Does a well-deserved number on non-mainstream charities. Thrills, chills and spills. Love the coflicted main character.
