Malin Fors by Mons Kallentoft
Malin Fors is the protagonist in a series of Scandinavian crime fiction novels by Swedish novelist Mons Kallentoft. Malin Fors is a detective based in the small town of Linkoping, Sweden. She is 31 years old with an athletic build. She’s also a single mother to a teenage daughter, Tove. Malin is also in the beginning stages of a potential drinking problem, is a workaholic, has trouble controlling her emotions and likes her sex rough with her partner – a journalist named Daniel. As a detective, she has a sixth sense for finding out the answers, but at the same time, she is the most complex officer to ever work in her department.
