Rate this:
Eva, a dynamic, successful young mother, is forced to reassess her marriage when her husband's apathy can no longer be ignored. When she discovers that he's been having an affair with their son's day-care teacher, her grief and rage drive her to vengeful action.

Then she meets Jonas, who for the past two years has been keeping vigil beside his comatose girlfriend. Burdened with his own sinister history, he sees a chance to start afresh with Eva.

Reminiscent of the work of Patricia Highsmith and Henning Mankell, Betrayal exposes the pain of deception and shows how our own destructive behaviour can lead to consequences far beyond our control.

Nominated for the Best Nordic Crime Novel award in 2004 and a bestseller across the continent, Betrayal cements Karin Alvtegen's position in the top rank of European thriller writers.
