The Magdalena File

By Jon Stenhugg

In September 1994, the MS Sally sunk off the coast of Sweden, close to Estonia.

Among the wreckage and bodies lay secret, smuggled Russian weapons technology on its way to Stockholm.

Several countries searched for it, but when it couldn’t be found, no one ever expected it to surface again.

When it turns out a previous member of Parliament, Hoffberg bought a manual to operate the weapon, the assumption is that he and a diver named Spimler might have been working together to blackmail the Swedish government.

But who would want them both dead?

Chief Inspector Lars Ekman, the head of Counter Terrorism, is in over his head. He makes a call to John Hurtree, now retired, but a legend as an investigator in the US Army CID.

With time ticking down, Sarah and John join forces, continuing to search for answers even after the case is handed over to another agency.

Sarah is convinced discovering the identity of a woman named Magdalena is the key to solving the case.

But will they get the answers in time? And how many people will die before they do?

Jon Stenhugg is a respected Swedish author of Nordic Noir, born in California, U.S.A. He graduated from Stockholm University with a degree in Education, Psychology and Statistics.
