A married couple is found dead in their jacuzzi. Their adopted five-year-old daughter has vanished. Inspector Malin Fors, the troubled but brilliant star of the Linkoping police force, is put in charge of the case.
But this is a haunting mystery where the borders have been blurred: those between the living and the dead, between good and evil.
Malin is only too aware of her own tendencies towards obsession and addiction. As the investigation takes a darker turn, forcing Malin to confront her own demons, will she hold out long enough to find the killer – and the missing girl – before it’s too late?


Mons Kallentoft is the Swedish crime writing phenomenon. Water Angels is a dark new mystery in the international best-selling Malin Fors series. This story touched my heart. I found the story unputdownable being tense and suspenseful.
This heart breaking first scene opens up with the violent deaths of Cecilia and Patrick Andergren being shot dead while relaxing naked in their Jacuzzi.  They were found dead in the water in the churning bubble-pool turning red from their bullet holes. But frightened Ella Andergren the five-year old girl Cecilia and Patrick had adopted that they brought to a strange country for a better life and unending love witnessed her adopted parents being shot and Ella is missing.  As the investigations takes the darkest corner it appears that Inspector Malin Fors believes that there could be a killer on the loose and possibly a child killer. With the young girl remaining missing, and the murders unsolved the city is left in fear.
This was a splendid first novel that I have read by Mons Kallentoft. I would definitely read more by Mons Kallentoft.
