Some Kind of Peace by Camilla Grebe and Åsa Träff
Dr. Siri Bergman is a psychologist. She helps her patients cope with eating disorders, depression and compulsions. She also is afraid of the dark and can’t sleep at night unless all the lights in her house are on and a fully charged flashlight is on her nightstand. Siri is still coping (or not) with accidental drowning death of her husband and cocoons herself away in the cottage by the sea that they lived in together. She leaves the cottage to go to her practice and hang out with her best friend and colleague, but she mostly stays in the cottage spending her nights with the lights on.
Then the body of one of her patients is found floating near her dock. How did the patient know where she lived? Did she commit suicide? The autopsy shows that the young patient was murdered. Things start happening around Siri that convince her, and those around her, that someone means her harm. But who? And why?
This suspense/mystery keeps you guessing. Written by a Swedish sister duo it is the first in a series. Since this suspense clearly revolved around the sleuth/psychologist Siri I’m guessing her best friend will take center stage in the next book After that I really don’t know how they will continue but I might just take a peek to find out.
