Rebecka Martinsson's caseload at her Stockholm-based law firm has never been more challenging. Martinsson grapples with a young man's death by drug overdose; the unravelling of an old family feud; the reopening of a 16-year-old cold case; and a woman and infant who've been found dead in a car—was it an accident or a crime?
