Brought together by a brutal murder, a psychological profiler who’s lost her memory and a teenage boy with a fiercely guarded secret become unwitting, unlikely partners in this race to stop a killer - “Nordic noir at its best” (Booklist, starred review).
Named the Best Nordic Crime Novel of the Year by the Crime Writers of Scandinavia.
Out of the frozen depths of a forest in Ormberg, Sweden, a woman stumbles onto the road. Her arms are covered with scratches, her feet are bare, and she has no memory of who she is. Local police identify her as psychological profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schön, who, with her partner, had been helping investigate the cold case of a young woman’s murder. Hanne begins to recover but cannot recall anything about where her partner is, or what their investigation had uncovered before her disappearance. Police have only one lead: a young woman in a sequined dress who was spotted nearby the night Hanne was found.
The young woman doesn’t come forward because she doesn’t exist: Jake Birgersson, a local teenager, had been out walking in his mother’s dress and sister’s makeup, his secret shame and thrill. Terrified of discovery, Jake hid and watched Hanne get into a car, leaving behind her diary.
Reading Hanne’s notebook, Jake realizes that it contains the key to a major breakthrough in the case - but turning it in would mean admitting the truth about who he is. When another murder victim is found in the woods, Jake realizes that Hanne herself is in danger, and his only choice is to find and warn her so that together, they can stop the killer before he strikes again.
Praise for After She’s Gone:

Good entertainment, but not memorable
The usual pattern of a slowly developing thriller, with various narrators/perspectives, going back and forth between the present and the past, and the climax and miraculous rescue right before the end of the story.
The boy Jake in the story is depicted very well, with all his teenage thoughts, this is one of the highlights in the story.
The description of the deserted Swedish village is also quite interesting, but on the whole I'd say it's a good thriller, nothing more than that.
