The Swimmer by Joakim Zander

This is an electrifying thriller from a brilliant new talent.  Published in twenty-seven countries and already a bestseller in Sweden, The Swimmer is on the cusp of becoming a global phenomenon.

Klara Walldeen was orphaned as a child and brought up by her grandparents on a remote Swedish archipelago.  She is now making her name in the murky world of European politics – but she has just seen something she shouldn’t: something people will kill to keep hidden.

On the other side of the world, an old spy hides from his past.  Once, he was a man of action, so dedicated to the cause that he abandoned his baby daughter to keep his cover.  Now alone and far from home, only the rhythm of his daily swims can keep his ghosts at bay.

Then, on Christmas eve, Klara is thrown into a terrifying chase through Europe.  Only the Swimmer can save her.  But time is running out…

Peer & Press Reviews

A terrific globe-trotting page-turner, rich with complex conflicts and a big, meaty, chillingly credible conspiracy.

Chris Pavone, author of The Expats

This is no orthodox Scandi noir; it is a novel with rare ambition and breadth…  With a crackling denouement and strong characters, it richly deserves its reputation.

Daily Mail

An unsettling thriller about the ruthlessness underpinning democratic power, where ends justify means and good guys are bad guys.  At the end you look up and see the world differently.

Lesley Thomson, author of The Detective's Daughter series
