On the last day of 2011, I pulled this book off my shelf at random and found a receipt tucked in the pages which told me I bought the book back in 2009. Well, considering that it is my first Liza Marklund read, I'd better make time for it and there is no time like the present.
P/S Happy New Year to all and may we look to another good year filled with love, health, hope and joy and happy reading!
Paperback blurb: Thirteen people are spending the shortest night of the year in an isolated manor house to film a prime time TV series. On the morning of Midsummer's Eve, the brightest star in Swedish television is found shot to death in a mobile control room.

As Annika is drawn into the ensuing investigation, her boyfriend Thomas accuses her of letting her family down. And Anders Schyman, her boss, involves her in a public power struggle.
Meanwhile, there's a killer on the loose - and a terrifying drama about to unfold in the public eye.
