Summary

Book 1 - RAVENSWING

When Sara’s father dies in a mysterious fire she moves from the small Swedish town Örebro to Stockholm. At first things are going almost too smoothly: the job at a café in the outskirts of Stockholm, is replaced with one at a cool PR agency downtown and the shabby suburban room becomes a luxurious apartment in the posh neighborhood of Östermalm. Sara, who has been through some traumatic events, is just happy to have things finally falling into place, even though her mother and sister back home find her luck quite remarkable.

Sara soon realizes that things are not as they seem. Strange things are happening to her, each time increasingly frightening and completely inexplicable. She questions her own sanity and regards everyone around her with growing suspicion. Can she really trust anyone, or is she imagining all the strange events happening to her? What if she is in fact crazy? The threat against Sara and her family become more apparent as it seems increasingly clear that someone wants something from her at any price. But what do they want? And why? Sara needs to find out, and the answers lay in the connection between her father’s mysterious death and the findings she made in his office.
