Red Wolf by Liza Marklund

Swedish crime reporter Annika Bengtzon probes a decades-old attack on a remote airbase, against the wishes of her editor. The investigation has already claimed the life of one of Anki’s colleagues.  Was the attack an initiation for something bigger and why did the government withhold the name of the instigator when they had detailed files on him?

A child’s drawing puts Annika on the trail of the Red Wolf and the ageing Maoist revolutionary with death on his shoulder.  Annika uncovers a web of lies, corruption and murder centering around the airbase and its employees past and present and for Annika there may be no future.
