Red Snow (Paperback)Will Dean (author)
- 5+ in stock
The brooding, woozy follow-up to cult smash Dark Pines is another slice of turbo-charged Scandi-noir. Reuniting readers with the maverick cop Tuva Moodyson, Red Snow throbs with sinuous mystery and grisly violence, as a spate of crimes with a creepy liquorice connection terrorise the small Swedish town of Gavrik.
Longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2020
One suicide. One cold-blooded murder. Are they connected? And who's really pulling the strings in the small Swedish town of Gavrik?
Black Grimberg liquorice coins cover the murdered man's eyes. The hashtag #Ferryman starts to trend as local people stock up on ammunition.
Tuva Moodyson, deaf reporter at the local paper, has a fortnight to investigate the deaths before she starts her new job in the south. A blizzard moves in. Residents, already terrified, feel increasingly cut-off. Tuva must go deep inside the Grimberg factory to stop the killer before she leaves town for good. But who's to say the Ferryman will let her go?
