False Faces

Another adventure in a typical Swedish setting – Spain! Like many thousands of tourists every year, Kajsa and Johan travel to Spain in this book. Just as they visit the famous art museum a bold theft is committed. A painting by Pablo Picasso is gone without a trace, and no-one understands how it was done. But Kajsa and Johan have seen something. They start making enquiries on their own and soon end up in the centre of events.

False or genuine? That question goes for both paintings and people. Who’s lying? Who’s telling the truth?

Author’s note:
This is my version of the famous ”locked room mystery”. I was also inspired by settings and people I have met in Spain and Italy. The trick, in detective fiction as well as in real life, is to look behind first appearances.
