13-year-old Eva-Lotta is running as fast as her legs will carry her. There’s a dead man in the bushes at the farm – it’s Green, the pawnbroker who’s lying there. Master Detective Kalle Blomkvist and his friends are being thrown into life-threatening adventures.
It's one year on since Master Detective Kalle Blomkvist solved the case of the great jewel robbery, and once again his sleepy little town is shaken by a dreadful crime. Mysterious circumstances surround the discovery of a dead body, and super sleuth Kalle must use all of his cunning to solve his first-ever murder case. For most, the summer holidays in a small Swedish town would be spent swimming, fishing, or sailing. But a super sleuth like Kalle Blomkvist is always looking for the next case to crack. So when a mysterious stranger arrives in town he finds the perfect excuse to start an investigation, one that will draw him and his friends into a thrilling case of theft and deception.
"Kalle Blomquist, was always one of my favourites. Oh, I can almost feel the sun on my face and the grass under my feet just thinking about this book, such a warm, happy summer feeling it gave me!"
