"Lars Mytting writes with an insight, empathy and integrity few others can match" JO NESBO

The Reindeer Hunters is the second in a thrilling historical trilogy that began with The Bell in the Lake.

The year is 1903, and twenty-two years have passed since Astrid Hekne died in childbirth. Her son Jehans lives on a modest smallholding up in the hills near Butangen, having withdrawn from his community. He is drawn to freedom, to fishing and reindeer hunting, and one day meets a stranger over the body of a huge reindeer buck.

"Mytting weaves a compelling saga of love, both lost and found, and of a country in the midst of change" Sunday Times

Outside the new church in Butangen, Pastor Kai Schweigaard still cares for Astrid Hekne's grave. The village's overworked priest is tormented by his old betrayal, which led to death and to the separation of two powerful church bells cast in memory of two sisters in Astrid's family. Kai is set on finding an ancient tapestry made by the sisters - the Hekne Weave - in the hope that it will reveal how he can remedy his iniquities.

"A craftily woven tale steeped in rich local dyes" Financial Times

Conceived on an epic scale by Norway's bestselling author, The Reindeer Hunters is a novel about love and bitter rivalries, sorrow and courage, about history and myth, and a country as it enters a new era, about the first electric light and the Great War in Europe, where brother stands against brother.

Translated from the Norwegian by Deborah Dawkin

MEDIA REVIEWS
Lars Mytting writes with an insight, empathy and integrity few others can match -- Jo Nesbo
Lars Mytting has written "The Hekne Tapestry" at the height of his powers. He may have told the story he always dreamt of telling. And what a story that is! This novel is in a class of its own, for both Mytting's standards and those of all books published this year" -- Preben Jordal * Aftenposten *
Mytting writes about people of flesh and blood; he combines the language, the psychology and the social in one artistic unit [...] And above all; he mesmerizes the reader with his huge register of feelings. I'm already looking forward to book three. -- Stein Roll * Adresseavisen ****** *

The Reindeer Hunters . . . hints at the magnetic pull of superstitions that thread beneath the conscious mind like
"veins of silver and slag" . It also maps an age of rapid change. . . [A] craftily woven tale steeped in rich local dyes

-- Boyd Tonkin * Financial Times *
Mytting weaves a compelling saga of love, both lost and found, and of a country in the midst of change. -- Nick Rennison * Sunday Times (Best Historical Fiction of 2022) *

“The second Instalment .”

The Reindeer Hunters is the follow up to The Bell In the Lake.

I absolutely loved how Mytting weaves Norwegian history, folklore and myths into the story of twin brothers separated from birth and not knowing of each... More
