'Niklas Natt och Dag takes the contemporary Scandinavian crime story and gives it a startlingly gruesome historical twist' Guardian

It is 1795 and evil lurks in the winding alleys of Stockholm. Tycho Ceton prowls the city, willing to do anything to survive and reclaim the honour he has lost. No one knows what he is planning next but Emil Winge, haunted by the ghosts of his past, is determined to stop him. Meanwhile, Jean Mickel Cardell is preoccupied with his own search for Anna Stina Knapp. She may have in her possession a letter which could have devastating consequences in the wrong hands.

All the while, hell looms inexorably . . .

In 1795: The Order of the Furies, the third instalment of Niklas Natt och Dag's historical noir trilogy, we are plunged once again into the bustling world of late eighteenth-century Stockholm. The city is teetering on a precipice, with evil shaking its core, but can love and friendship prevail?

“A satisfying conclusion to the trilogy of historical mysteries featuring Jean Mickel Cardell”

“Autumn becomes winter and the year turns, winter becomes spring and a fairy tale is told in the City-between-the-Bridges – one of the cautionary variety, although it is not children that it frightens, but grown men.... More
