The Swimmer by Joakim Zander
This debut novel by Swedish writer Zander is certainly an international espionage page-turner! It begins with a Damascus car bombing that kills a woman with an infant girl, Klara. The bomb was meant for the Klara's father. Years later Klara, now an adult and working as an aid in a government building, finds herself in the middle of a hunt for information on a computer she possesses that could be the end of the CIA if it is released. Complete with a cold and stormy winter night on an island in the Swedish Archipelago who will come to Klara's rescue?
