Camilla Ceder Frozen Moment
Move over Wallander – this is the new kid on the block in Scandinavian crime… The countryside outside Gothenburg is throwing up unpleasant surprises. A man is found dead in an isolated garage, and lone wolf Inspector Christian Tell – compared widely in Sweden to Wallander – is assigned to the case. But as parallels mount up to an unsolved mystery in the past, and Tell is increasingly attracted to the key witness, the case becomes more problematic than the detective could ever have imagined… Camilla Ceder was born in 1976. She studied social science and psychotherapy and, when not writing, works in counselling and social work. She lives in Sweden.
