Description

"This year's best novel... Brutal, colourful, carnal... Impossible to put down."  --Expressen

A Swedish publishing phenomenon: a literary noir of extraordinary power follows the discovery of a young woman's body in the long grass behind the sawmill...


Which part of the story is not for telling?

Jana Kippo has returned to Smalånger to see her twin brother, Bror, still living in the small family farmhouse in the remote north of Sweden.

Within the isolated community, secrets and lies have grown silently, undisturbed for years.

Following the discovery of a young woman's body in the long grass behind the sawmill, the siblings, hooked by a childhood steeped in darkness, need to break free.

But the truth cannot be found in other people's stories. The question is: can it be found anywhere?
