4 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Thriller / suspense

Discover the gripping, ingenious new Scandinavian thriller that will keep you guessing right until the end... A father's search. A daughter in danger. A terrifying secret.

It was ten past four on the afternoon of the third of December. Everything was darkness and ink, and the snow falling turned to water.

Through it ran Sara Sandberg, the girl who was about to die, and somewhere in the cold, lead-grey hell that was Stockholm was a man who called himself her father.

In her rucksack, she had a warning for him.

Now whether he would receive it or not was all down to her.

From international bestseller and renowned Swedish screenwriter Fredrik T. Olsson comes a gripping, visionary thriller that's impossible to put down.
