This is an auction for BLACKWATER by Kerstin Ekman.

"Blackwater is a densely plotted psychological thriller set in northern Sweden, near the Norwegian border. Centred around the unsolved murder of two sleeping campers, the novel focuses on the anguish of Annie Raft, a teacher who discovers the bodies, and Birgir Torbjornsson. Eighteen years later Annie again sees the mysterious young man she saw running through the woods that night. He is her daughter's lover. Annie's identification sets in motion a spiral of tragic events that lead to the shocking denouement. In her first novel to be published in the United States, Ekman, the winner of several literary awards in Sweden, creates an aura of fear and malaise as she depicts a suspicious, isolated community shocked by a crime but unwilling to give up one of its own. She infuses the novel with the eerie atmosphere of the North, where it's either always dark or light but never truly warm. Blackwater is rich in psychological nuance and character. Highly recommended."
