The Traces We Leave Behind

9789150718645.jpg

What traces do you leave behind on the internet? You share where you are, and what you do, but do you really know who can access the information?

Picture this: you are enjoying dinner with your friends at a new restaurant in town. The food is great, so you decide to upload a pictureof itto Facebook, mentioning your friends and geotagging the restaurant. When you think about it, you don’t necessarily know all of your Facebook friendsthat well, but it’s just an innocent photo of a delicious dinner. Unknowingly, you have now made it very ease for the wrong people to know exactly where you are, and when. 

The ERLA Group: Edith, Rickard, Liv and Aminah are put together through means from theby a formerchief ofpolice?, but is a highly unofficial taskforce. Liv Kaspi is our protagonist. She is a police woman famous for almost fallingvictim of sexual harassment assaultherself, but she managed to fend the perpetrator off, somewhat too violently. She joins the ERLA Group with a flaming urge for justice. The group’s mission is to find the connections between the women who are being attacked. This is where Aminah, a gamer and hacker, proves herself indispensable. She manages to find out that the women have more in common other thanjust living along the same subway line; a Facebook friend called Daniel Larsson.

A witness under enormous threat.

A traitor within the police force.

A torpedo who shies away from nothing.

The “fixer” of the former ERLA Group, Rickard Falke, is in mortal danger. He is in possession of important information, enough to take down one of the most powerful men of the criminal world, and the upcoming trial is quickly approaching. A torpedo is assigned the mission to get rid of Rickard, and the killer receives intelligence from someone who knows a lot about the situation. Turns out, the source is working within the police force. 

The ERLA Group is reunited, and police woman Liv Kaspi leads the others in the hunt for the torpedo. She is pushed to her very edge to save herself – and the ones she loves the most.

When You Turn Around

A woman is brutally raped by an unknown man in her own home. The perpetrator is arrested on the crime scene, and at a first glance the case seems to be an easy one to solve. However, it turns out that the rapist doesn’t realize that he has committed any crimes – he had been invited. And he is not the only one. As the ERLA Group once again is gathered, they are beginning to see patterns that they are reluctant to discover. Could it really be that these men are unaware of the fact that they are rapists? And how come they all insist that they would never have done anything, if the woman would just have uttered the safe word. And the safe words are all different forms of the word “dog”. Tracker dog. Fighting dog. Watchdog. Hunting dog. Draft dog.

When You Turn Around is inspired by real offenses, a mix between true crime and fiction.
