In the Month of the Midnight Sun

by Cecilia Ekbäck
£7.99   paperback  Hodder & Stoughton (2016)

In the Month of the Midnight Sun by Cecilia Ekbäck From the acclaimed author of Wolf Winter comes a second brilliantly written and gripping historical Nordic Noir thriller with all the intrigue and atmosphere of Burial Rites, the pent-up passion of The Piano and the suspense of The Tenderness of Wolves.

"A gripping, beautifully written novel that I devoured in a day...as thrilling as it is fascinating"
(Hannah Kent, author of 'Burial Rites')
Sweden 1856.
 
Blackasen Mountain: a distant place of rumour, superstition and now - murder.
 
They say it was the Lapp who killed the three men.
 
But something is not right.
 
Ester knows it - but to help the settlers is to betray her people.
 
Magnus feels it too. Sent by the Minister to survey the mountain, he cannot resist its mystery.
 
And Lovisa: banished from the city by her father, travelling with her sister's husband, she is perhaps closest of them all to the wildness of the place.
 
Three people, caught in the haunting light of the midnight sun.
