Winner of the CWA Best Debut Crime Novel 2009: a haunting first novel about a missing child.
Throughout his life, Johan Theorin has been a regular visitor to the Baltic Island of land. His mother's family - sailors, fishermen and farmers - have lived there for centuries, nurturing the island's rich legacy of strange tales and folklore. A journalist by profession, Johan is currently working on the third novel.
"Evocative and haunting, with a subtle sense of menace that grows with each page" -- Simon Beckett, author of The Chemistry of Death "An impressive debut novel...Theorin's excellence in conveying bleak atmosphere is matched by his insight into sensitive family relationships" * THE TIMES * "Fantastic... Theorin's prose is wonderfully descriptive" * GUARDIAN * "There is warmth in Theorin's narrative and the gradual piecing together of the story leads to an unexpected denouement" * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * "Sheer storytelling grip such as this is relatively rare. A particular strength is the evocation of locale and atmosphere here; it is masterfully done" * THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE *
