Summary
On a hot June day in 2014, Leo Junker's mentor - Charles Levin - is found dead. Levin has been shot in the head in the small village of Bruket, where he had just moved after retiring from the police force in Stockholm. The detective in charge of the preliminary murder investigation is Tove Waltersson, a 33-year-old native of Bruket. Tove's older brother, Markus, was also a police officer, but was killed in a shoot-out in the harbour of Visby, Gotland, one year earlier. The loss has scarred Tove deeply. When news of Levin's death reaches Leo Junker, he is shocked and deeply saddened. Leo realises two things- first, the investigation will soon be taken over by the National Bureau of Investigation; and, second, he has to try to do everything he can to find the murderer. Leo leaves Stockholm for Bruket. Here, Leo encounters Tove Waltersson for the first time. He does not know who she is, but she is well aware of him. Tove knows that Leo was the one who accidentally shot and killed her brother that fateful night on Gotland. Now they must work together a Thirty years earlier, two young police officers with the Swedish Security Service have turned crooked and are running their own shady schemes. Hot on their trail is a young journalist, about to expose them. One dark night in November, an irreversible decision is made that will shadow the young men's lives forever. Leo is put to the test as he struggles to understand what happened all those years ago, let alone just recently. It turns out that, as the past catches up to the present, the truth may prove deadly. Master, Liar, Traitor, Friend is an epic tale of friendship and betrayal, of love and loss. In it, Christoffer Carlsson proves once again that he is a master dramatist
