Three years ago, Lelle's daughter went missing in a remote part of Northern Sweden. Lelle has spent the intervening summers driving the Silver Road under the midnight sun, frantically searching for his lost daughter.
Meanwhile, seventeen-year-old Meja arrives in town hoping for a fresh start. She is the same age as Lelle's daughter was - a girl on the brink of adulthood. But for Meja, there are dangers to be found in this isolated place.

As the days darken Lelle and Meja's lives are intertwined in ways, both haunting and tragic, that they could never have imagined.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Unsettling and absorbing * Observer, THRILLER OF THE MONTH *
A haunting debut... an unflinching examination of the kind of men who prey on vulnerable young women. * Sunday Times Crime Book of the Month *
I really enjoyed The Silver Road. There's a haunting, intoxicating atmosphere throughout, intensified by the never ending Nordic daylight, which is in stark contrast to the darkness of the families the story follows. A great read. * Ali Land, author of Good Me Bad Me *
A stunning read. Beautifully written and utterly haunting. * Jo Spain, author of The Confession *
I lost the whole weekend to Lelle and Meja and couldn't have loved it more. Deeply affecting and full of heart, yet a dark, despairing page-turner. A very impressive debut. * Chris Whitaker, author of All the Wicked Girls *
I love everything about this book. Stina Jackson has mastered the art of combining suspense with literary depth. It's oh so beautiful, wistful and well written. * Lina Bengtsdotter, author of For the Missing *
Beautifully written, haunting and intense. * Sunday Times Crime Club *
Jackson has the confidence to deliver a thoughtful, patiently told story in which there are no conventional genre heroes, just ordinary people struggling to cope with their respective tragedies. * Irish Times *

“Delicious drama in this subtle Scandi novel”

The Silver Road is a deceptively subtle example of Scandi Noir. It takes place in Sweden, driving nightly up and down the Silver Road in one man's quest to find his missing daughter. There is not an omnipotent... More

Full of desolation, bleakness and isolation... More
