The Swimmer by Joakim Zander

"Guilt and atonement and revenge ... an impressive, fast-paced thriller."

"A thrilling debut ... a novel with rare ambition with a crackling denouement and strong characters, it richly deserves its reputation"
The Swimmer
Joakim Zander

Once he was a man of action, so dedicated to his cause that he abandoned his baby daughter to save his life and keep his cover. Now he has spent far too long alone with that great sorrow. Now, retired from the front line, his views are at odds with the modern ways of intelligence gathering. Now he discovers his daughter has become a person of interest.

Klara has grown into an accomplished woman – a high powered job in the headquarters of the European Union. Demanding and with its rewards. Not bad for a girl who grew up with her grandparents on a remote island in the Stockholm archipeligo. Except an old boyfriend looks her up, and he is in trouble – called a terrorist and pursued for a secret that is too dangerous for it to see the light of day. Deaths and its destruction are the order of the day. No one is safe. Neither hunters nor the hunted. No one will give up until the job is done. Ruthless scheming and violent action drive the pursuit.
