A profound and exhaustive exploration of Russian life and the human condition. Tolstoy creates one of the most complex heroines in literature as he details Anna falling a conscious victim to her own passion.
The dramatic scope of the story, the memorable characters, and the wealth of emotions that Tolstoy displays render ‘Anna Karenina’ much more than a novel, but rather an unmissable chronicle of the human condition that transcends both space and time.
Famous crime writer, Inez Carlsson, receives a mysterious letter from the mayor of K City. Recently, four children have gone missing and the police have turned to the forest on the outskirts of town for answers.
The mayor thinks that the police investigation is moving too slowly and she is convinced that Inez can help them solve the case. But what is really going on beneath the surface of K City? And who can be trusted?
With the help of the city’s police chief, Johan Jarl, Inez begins her own investigation, using a few controversial methods and her instincts, to find the children in a race against the clock. But will she find them before it’s too late?
