    Mørk muld er det syvende bind i Ann Cleeves’ Shetland-serie. Serien er en stor succes, både i bogform og som BBC’s storslåede tv-serie. I de mørke vinterdage på Shetlandsøerne sætter flere måneders kraftig regn gang i et jordskred. Jordmasserne vælter hen over hovedvejen mellem Lerwick og Sumburgh og videre ned til havet. Jimmy Perez ser ved vennen Magnus Taits begravelse, hvordan mudderet og det tørveholdige vand pløjer sig gennem et lille husmandssted. Alle tror, huset er ubeboet, men mellem mudder, sten og murbrokker finder Perez liget af en mørkhåret kvinde iført en rød silkekjole. Kvindens mørke, eksotiske udseende får ham til at føle, at de på en eller anden måde er forbundet, og han arbejder desperat for at identificere hende. Det viser sig, at kvinden allerede var død, inden jordskreddet ramte huset. Perez kaster sig over efterforskningen for at opklare, hvem hun var, og hvordan hun døde. Mørk muld er den syvende roman i Ann Cleeves’ Shetland-serie, der er filmatiseret af BBC og følges af millioner af seere over hele verden. I Shetland-serien findes også Sort som ravnen, Hvide nætter, Rødt støv, Stormvarsel, Dødvande og Blå luft. Omtale i pressen ”… det tvist, som en dygtig forfatter giver en almindelig krimi ... Læs bogen, og gå ikke glip af tv-serien.” Globe and Mail ”Jeg synes altid, at Ann Cleeves’ bøger er rigtig gode. De holder en høj international standard.” Magnus Utvik i Gomorron Sverige, SVT ”Kun få britiske forfattere formår som Cleeves at fremmane et steds atmosfære, og skildringen af vejret og terrænet er lige så afgørende for Shetland-seriens popularitet som beskrivelsen af Perez, hvis spanske rødder gør, at han altid vil stå som en outsider i dette afsondrede samfund. Det her er en af de bedste bøger i serien.” Barry Forshaw, FT ”Shetlandsøerne er et fascinerende sted, og romanfigurerne, hvoraf nogle er lokale, og andre tilflyttere, som søger fred eller frelse for fortiden på en afsondret ø, danner baggrund for krimigåden. Endnu en supergod læseoplevelse, som jeg kun kan give mine varmeste anbefalinger.” Crimesquad Det, der har gjort hendes bøger populære og prisbelønnede, er, at de er litterære romaner, som samtidig er spændende.” Östgöta Correspondenten ”Ann Cleeves formår på fornemste vis at skildre livet på Shetlandsøerne og den særlige stemning, som man finder i øsamfund.” Ölandsbladet

    Thin Air is the sixth book in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series - a major BBC One drama starring Douglas Henshall as detective Jimmy Perez.A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Unst, Shetland's most northerly island, to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends to a Shetlander. But late on the night of the wedding party, one of them, Eleanor, disappears - apparently into thin air. It's mid-summer, a time of light nights and unexpected mists. The following day, Eleanor's friend Polly receives an email. It appears to be a suicide note, saying she'll never be found alive. And then Eleanor's body is discovered, lying in a small loch close to the cliff edge. Detectives Jimmy Perez and Willow Reeves are dispatched to Unst to investigate. Before she went missing, Eleanor claimed to have seen the ghost of a local child who drowned in the 1920s. Her interest in the ghost had seemed unhealthy - obsessive, even - to her friends: an indication of a troubled mind. But Jimmy and Willow are convinced that there is more to Eleanor's death than they first thought. Is there a secret that lies behind the myth? One so shocking that someone would kill - many years later - to protect? Ann Cleeves' striking Shetland novel explores the tensions between tradition and modernity that lie deep at the heart of a community, and how events from the past can have devastating effects on the present.Also available in the Shetland series are Raven Black, White Nights, Red Bones, Blue Lightning, Dead Water, Cold Earth and Wild Fire.
