Red Wolf, by Liza Marklund, a-minus, Narrated by Jill Tanner, produced by Harper Audio, downloaded from audible.com.

Annika Bengtzon is a crime reporter for a major paper in Stockholm. She decides to investigate a murder of a journalist. She comes to believe that this crime connects to one that occurred 30 years ago, when a plane was blown up on a Swedish air base and someone was killed in the explosion, and the group responsible for the explosion were never caught. The police had a suspect, the leader of a small splinter Communist group, but he fled Sweden and hadn’t been seen in 30 years. But now with this latest murder, there appeared to be some new evidence about the previous hcrime. Annika determined to meet with a journalist in Northern Sweden who had come up with additional information and had published at least one article. She made an appointment to meet this journalist, but when she arrived she found the journalist had been killed, run over by a car. At first the police thought it an accident, but then Annika turned up a witness, a small boy who saw the whole accident. She convinced him to tell his mother and then the police, and then the child was murdered. A couple more murders take place. Then, inexplicably, Annika is told not to investigate the terrorist plot further. Of course she takes her own sick and vacation time and goes ahead. While finding answers to this mystery, she also learns that her husband is having an affair. This is one woman you don’t want to cross. She finds ways to “deal” with her husband’s girl friend as well. An excellent book with an intriguing character. I hope more of Marklund’s books are recorded in English.
