Apagar Estocolmo

by Jens Lapidus

Uma advogada, um ex-presidiário e o seu sobrinho uniram-se para resolver um terrível assassinato neste thriller explosivo de Jens Lapidus, o autor sueco aclamado internacionalmente. Apagar Estocolmo é a história de gente que tenta esquecer o seu passado e que está disposta a fazer qualquer coisa para que os seus velhos eus desapareçam. Fala de um mundo caprichoso que apaga algumas pessoas enquanto concede a outras oportunidades incríveis. Finalista do Prémio da Academia Sueca de Escritores de Crime (como melhor romance policial sueco). Quando o alarme de uma casa dispara em Värmdö, uma ilha do arquipélago de Estocolmo, um guarda acode, temendo uma invasão. Mas o que encontra está longe de ser comum: um corpo não identificável, brutalmente assassinado. Para complicar ainda mais as coisas, depara-se com um jovem ferido perto da cena do crime - um homem que a Polícia considerará o principal suspeito. Emelie Jansson, uma jovem e prometedora advogada, recém-admitida numa conhecida firma de advogados, assume o caso do jovem, apesar da discordância do seu chefe. A apoiá-la está Teddy, um ex-presidiário que tenta permanecer no lado certo da lei, trabalhando como investigador para a firma de advogados. Mas Teddy tem os seus próprios problemas - nomeadamente, o seu rebelde sobrinho, que está prestes a seguir os passos criminosos do tio. Quem é a vítima do assassinato e quem é o assassino? E por que é que todos os caminhos parecem conduzir a Mats Emanuelsson, um homem que Teddy sequestrou em tempos? Enquanto Emelie investiga, Teddy deve confrontar-se com o passado e salvar o sobrinho de um destino problemático. Rapidamente, os três ficam presos num jogo arriscado que ameaça desfazer as suas vidas. «Finalmente, um épico thriller europeu à altura dos livros de Stieg Larsson...
